Sneak Peek: First Look, Wedding, Private Residence

My heart is so full with love and happiness. In San Clemente in a private garden, two lovely people saw each other for the first time, ready for the rest of their lives together. Completely dedicated to their future paths together, two became one…. I am happy to share a sneak peek from that moment for you today.

Thank you for letting me be a part of your beautiful journey together. You are so beautiful… Children of the Earth….

Today is an amazing milestone for me- in every way. Supreme Court Rules Gay Marriage Bans Are Unconstitutional!! Tears of joy and happiness are the best way to describe how much love I feel. The fight for same civil rights, and equality for all has been in the forefront of my life. Seeing friends and family not be equal in marriage was heart breaking… but today marks a change that will be a liberty we all can experience.  I was moved by this statement from Anthony Kennedy:

“The right of same-sex couples to marry that is part of the liberty promised by the Fourteenth Amendment is derived, too, from that Amendment’s guarantee of the equal protection of the laws. The Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause are connected in a profound way, though they set forth independent principles. Rights implicit in liberty and rights secured by equal protection may rest on different precepts and are not always coextensive, yet in some instances each may be instructive as to the meaning and reach of the other. In any particular case one Clause may be thought to capture the essence of the right in a more accurate and comprehensive way, even as the two Clauses may converge in the identification and definition of the right.”

Wedding: Shutters on the Beach, Santa Monica, CA

Truthfully, I knew this wedding was going to be incredible. From the moment it was declared it was at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica. From the chic boutique rooms, to the ocean views, it is one of my favorite spots in Los Angeles, that always feels like a destination wedding.

Your Laughter by Pablo Neruda

Laugh at the night,
at the day,
at the moon,
laugh at the twisted
streets of the island,
laugh at this clumsy boy
who loves you,
but when I open
my eyes and close them,
when my steps go,
when my steps return,
deny me bread, air,
light, spring,
but never your laughter
for I would die.

Imagine the most perfect woman. Beautiful, kind, respectful, vegan, and a laugh that could cure the saddest stormy day.

This is a flashback from one of my favorites in 2009. Thanks to Jocelyn and Stef for letting me remember what a fabulous location L.A. River Center is to shoot a wedding.
