I flew cross country from NYC to LA to photograph this awesome wedding out by Redondo beach. The weather was not the typical for Southern California it was more like San Fransisco…foggy and over cast until the late afternoon when the sun peeked out for just a few moments before setting. The wedding took place at the Salvation Army grounds high on a hillside that looks out over the stunning pacific ocean, (which we couldn’t really see until that sun came out, but just knowing it was there was pretty awesome). The bride and groom got themselves ready on the grounds, quickly taking care of any last minute details (including their vows) that needed to be finished before everything started. The ceremony went off with out a hitch and it was beautiful as Elsa & Kevin recited their love for each other in front of their closest family and friends. Shortly after being pronounced man and wife they had a receiving line and a fun laid back, intimate reception where great loving stories about the b & g were shared among the guests. There was sparkling cider for the toasts and instead of cake they served delicious mochi (ice cream wrapped in rice dough) with their initials on them for desert. The next morning, I met up with Elsa & Kevin to take some photos down by the ocean, and though the weather was equally as gloomy, the newlyweds were quite cheery and visibly excited to be together and married! I feel so lucky to have been a part of such an intimate family event on the other side of the country. Congratulations to Elsa & Kevin!
