Nothing excites me more as a creative than being given the opportunity to shoot in different areas. When we were asked to film Charlotte and Sammy’s wedding at The Resort at Pelican Hill, you can only imagine how giddy I was. Located in the cliffs of Newport Beach, this breathtaking venue is one of the most luxurious places to get married in Southern California. Not only are you captivated by the century-old olive trees, rows of lavender, and 180-degree views of the Pacific, but the level of service and attention to detail are really what leave you in awe. It really gives true meaning to the phrase “people will never forget how you made them feel”. And no matter who you are or what part you play in the grand scheme of a Pelican Hill wedding, you are made to feel extraordinary.
I instantly fell in love with Charlotte’s custom made illusion wedding gown with detachable train. The two of them really complimented the grandeur of the orchid wrapped Rotunda with Charlotte’s cathedral veil and Sammy’s blue checkered suit with black suede shoes. The soft blue and ivory flowers that drenched the ceremony, made their way up to the Mar Vista lower patio, where a candle lit dinner service would begin. After their elegantly choreographed first dance, Charlotte and Sammy sat at the head table with their families perfectly framed by some lavish drapery. Once the three course meal was finished, guests made their way up to the Mar Vista Ballroom where they would party into the night with the Rembrandt Band. It was truly an evening we will never forget.
Thank you for allowing us to capture your day Charlotte and Sammy! May your life be filled with more incredible adventures.
