Biltmore Hotel Wedding Photography

Destination Wedding | Los Angeles Biltmore

This past weekend Molly, Connie and I headed up North to photograph Cindy and Erik’s fabulous Biltmore Hotel Wedding in Los Angeles. I hadn’t had a chance to meet either the bride or groom as they’d commissioned me from out of state. Cindy and Erik are both doing their residencies as doctores in different states. She in Boston and he in New York City. This was a very special Biltmore Hotel Wedding in many ways: 1 – There is no wedding party and much more European in flavor, and 2 – Recently Cindy’s father passed away and 3 – Because of their health, Erik’s parent’s were not able to make the trip from Europe. However, his two brothers flew in from Switzerland and Copenhagen to attend their wedding at the Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel and then to tour Los Angeles for a few days. Cindy’s Mom, her sister Candice (who will be getting hitched in Beverly Hills at the end of this month) was there with her two aunts and grandmother. And Cindy’s uncle Mr. Kim flew in from Korea to walk her down the isle. Everyone was incredible civilized and warm, and relaxed and smiling the entire day.

We started out their Biltmore Hotel Wedding photography in a suite on the top floor and then moved to the main lobby for Cindy and Erik’s reveal. Cindy as you’ll see is beyond radiant and Erik with his Nordic and Viking features…well let’s just say that together they make a striking couple. After their reveal we started some relaxed family portraits. At about 4:30 pm a white ’62 Rolls Royce from Classic Limos picked them up and whisked them off to Woodland Hills Christian Church for their ceremony.

After their Woodland Hills Christian Church ceremony we headed over to Cindy’s alma-matter UCLA for their wedding photography session. Then zig zagged through heavy LA traffic back to the Biltmore Hotel for an amazing reception in the Gold Room where the soothing sounds of the Bob Gail Orchestra (supervised by Mr. Eric Pincus – a dead ringer for Jerry Seinfeld.) mingled with the scent of a thousand roses and the golden glow of tapered candles and amber lights. You’ll notice that their center pieces are works of art…courtesy of Shirvan Design. In eight years of photographing weddings, I’ve never seen anything that compares to these glorious centerpieces.

The most important thing to Cindy was that she have wonderful wedding photographs of her and Erik because in her own words: “We don’t have any good photos of us together.”

I promised Cindy that I’d change all that for her.

Cindy and Erik….just wanted to take a moment to thank both of you for your trust and allowing me complete freedom to do what i do best on your wedding day. I had an amazing day with you and your families at the Biltmore Hotel and beyond. I realize that there are many family and friends who could not attend so I hope this will give them a feeling of being right there with you on your wedding day. Erik, I hope that your parents have internet access so that they can enjoy seeing your wedding images.millenium biltmore hotel wedding photographer

Spanish Village by the Sea | Casa Romantica Wedding

Casa Romantica Wedding Photography Paradise

Casa Romantica Wedding Photography:  Perched on a bluff overlooking the San Clemente Pier & the Pacific Ocean, Casa Romantica is a visually stunning venue for a wedding. Never having been there before I was pleasantly surprised by the myriad of small details which make Casa Romantica a wedding photography paradise. The back porch overlooking the sea is white washed and reminiscent of a Greek manor. Because the back porch is white washed and shaded by an overhang it is the prefect place for a bride and groom reveal and for creating beautiful wedding portraits.

Casa Romantica is Just 3 minutes from the San Clemente Pier & San Clemente Beach

Another wonderful feature is that its a short drive from the Casa Romantica to the San Clemente Pier and ocean. We definitely took advantage of that with a beautiful wedding photography portrait session on the pier and the beach. Just before the beach is the Amtrack railway which we used from some fun portraits of Christina & Tim.

Christina & Tim’s Casa Romantica Wedding | “It All Started with an Internet Connection”

“Well, the story of how Tim and I met…. It all started with an internet connection, a curiosity to get our free personality profiles and an internet dating service. Haha. We actually met on eHarmony.com. Tim was the first match that they sent me. We went through all the steps that the site recommends for “guided” communication, and then we exchanged phone numbers (I then canceled the service in the 7-day free trial). 🙂 Our first date was miniature golf and bowling. We had a blast. Who knew that we’d still be together almost five years later?!?!?” Christina-

Off to Fiji for their Honeymoon

“We went to Fiji and spent an amazing stay at Navutu Stars in the Yasawa island chain (Yaqeta). It was an amazing, enriching, soul inspiring trip and the resort was purely amazing as well as it’s staff. Simply superb experience. It is something special when you can watch the sunrise from your deck overlooking the ocean and other islands … and watch the sunset while sitting on a small rowboat with locals playing guitars, singing Amazing Grace and making delicious cocktails. This “conversation” is making me wish I was back there. …There were tears had by all when we left.” Christina

Okay, I’m officially jealous! Christina and Tim, thank you for keeping it real and having a blast on your wedding day. It’s an honor getting to know you. casa romantica wedding photographer

Christina looks stunning in her Paloma Blanca wedding dress.

















Beautiful Eco Friendly Succulent Wedding design by Krista Jon

Over the years I’ve photographed allot of weddings. And, its always refreshing to see something new and fresh. Christina wanted to have an eco friendly wedding and hired the talented Krista Jon of Couture Designs to create something unique and special for her. Krsita shop is located in San Clemente and works closely with the Casa and all her clients to create the perfect floral design for them.

Here’s a couple of detail images from Christina & Tim’s Eco-Friendly Wedding

This was the first time I’d ever seen a living sustainable succulent hair piece and boutonniere. After the wedding Christina and Tim have living memories of their wedding day. Both her bouquet and his boutonniere are potted and growing at their home.

Hiring a Wedding Planner and an Officiant

One of the best things that you can do when planning your wedding is hire a top notch event planner/producer. Hiring a day of consultant really doesn’t do you justice. It’s stressful for both of you. Because your not likely to be on the same page with them they way you would be completely in synch with with one that has worked with you on your wedding from the start. One of the best in the business is Carrie Goff. She is all about the bride and groom being completely taken care of on the wedding day. And her attention to detail is unrivaled. Another wedding detail not to be overlooked to having a warm, experienced & personable officiant. You’ll find all these qualities and more in Rev. Michael Ahern.

San Juan Capistrano | Engagement Photography

I’m playing blog catch up. It’s been a few months since I’ve been blogging regularly. But more on that later. For now….let’s get right to Emily & Brian’s sweet engagement session. You can just tell by looking at Emily and Brian that they are in love. We met at the Mission San Juan Capistrano a couple of months before their swanky La Jolla wedding at the Estancia Resort. Totally down to earth and full of smiles and good looks we started out and blessed with beautiful weather and phenomenal light. We spent a few hours together and created some fun, relaxed and memorable images. What follows are some of the images that were used in their engagement album.

Estancia Wedding

La Jolla Resort | Gorgeous Spanish Style | Estancia Wedding

The Estancia Hotel Wedding & Spa in La Jolla is one of my favorite resorts on the planet. Understated Spanish elegance, with a fantastic wine bar and restaurant is the Estancia Hotel & Spa in La Jolla. I first visited the Estancia Hotel about 5 years ago, just after it was built and stayed there a few days with my sister Dr. Jill (she’s a neuro scientist, scans peoples brains and stuff). The room rates have since almost tripled. Plus, you can’t beat the location, right near the expansive beaches at Torey Pines. The property has some fantastic grounds with cactus an old Spanish bar and big fire places to keep you warm at night. Emily and Brian are the coolest and their Estancia wedding was an absolute blast! Emily is simply gorgeous and Brian a rough and tumble smart super nice guy and loves Emily big time. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, with misty fog moving in and out, it made for gorgeous lighting for their Estancia wedding. Emily’s Ines Di Santo wedding gown is simply stunning.estancia wedding la jolla photographer
