These are all the rest of the fun and lovely images from Ben & Courtney’s wedding day at Rancho Del Cielo in Malibu! You can see the film images from the previous post here.

Marica of Crystal Clear Weddings & Occasions rocked the house and planned a wonderful party. The florals, food, and decor was from some of my favorite wedding professionals! It’s always a pleasure working with them. Check out these florals… Peony & Plum always dazzling as usual. And it’s especially sweet to witness every couple and their special connection with each other. Ben & Courtney have such a cute relationship and are really some of the sweetest people. This wedding was a relaxing and fun event. Instead of cocktail hour being after the ceremony, it happened as people arrived by shuttle to the venue. And how can I forget Courtney’s amazing flowing summery Alexander McQueen wedding dress. I just love her style and how she chose such a fun and stylish golden necklace to accent it. This location is definitely one of my favorites to shoot at. Every time I photograph a ceremony at Rancho Del Cielo, it’s such a breathtaking view. Heirloom LA catered the wedding, and when they are in charge of the food, no stomach goes hungry. One cannot help but salivate at the wonderful yummies they serve. Mmmm And you know what just made me do a happy dance? The Cool Haus Ice Cream Truck…. it’s the desert of my dreams. Every time I come across one at a wedding I die… of sweet tooth envy. Ahhh..

Take a look at some of my favorite highlights from the day. Delightfully colorful and sweet (literally!)

Pretty much this is yet another gorgeous wedding filled with fun people, sunsets, and smiling faces! This is Ben & Courtney’s Rancho Del Cielo Malibu wedding in a nutshell. All of these images were captured with my trusty film camera with Fuji 400H and processed by RPL. I love the colors and love the feel of them. Stay tuned for the next post that shares even more images from the day. Ben & Courtney are so adorably fun. It was a good day! Very unique ideas and elements to the day that made the entire experience very refreshing. Very much the way I would like to approach my own wedding day. Congrats you two!

So, I had the lovely pleasure to second shoot for Erich Chen…and it was so freakin awesome. The Wedding was at Rancho Del Cielo.  It’s always nice to have a friend who is constantly striving to be better in all aspects of life. I love people like that! Thanks Erich! For just being you.

Always lots of fun with him… and sometimes I laugh… a lot…. when funny things happen at the reception. Then, he looks at me strangely. And in between…oh… let’s say…. I also photograph. And if Erich laughs hard with me… that’s it. it’s over. I might as well pee my pants.

Anywhooo… I cannot express how much I adored Kevin & Sheryl….AND all the so thoughtfully carried out details…around every corner. And I mean every corner. I’m very keen on the tiniest details…because I love intricate / complicated things… especially when it comes to design or art. I could tell that every little detail was handled with so much care and love…. and that’s exactly what emanates from this couple when you meet them. Do you know when you just feel so much warmth from people? Well, that’s Kevin & Sheryl. Two sweet spirits that light up the room with their smiles! (When their smiley dimples combine…there is no resisting them haha). I cried the happy tears so many different moments through the ceremony… from the worship music to pretty much the whole day any time someone spoke from their heart…which was practically the whole time. Everyone. was. lovely. :)

The colors of their wedding swirled in my brain and I loved every second of it.

I hope you enjoy! :)
