JoAnna and Jeff had a fun and heartfelt day at the beautiful Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, Ca. Surrounded by their loving family and friends, the two tied the knot in style. I love how both their Mothers and Grandmothers were honored during the ceremony and how everyone, young and old danced the night away. Thanks, Jeret for shooting with me that day and thanks to Kerrie of Plantinum Weddings by Kerrie for coordinating such a flawless event.
JoAnna had personalized handkerchiefs made for her Mother, Father and for herself. They each had something sweet to say and even I got emotional reading them all.
A quiet moment as JoAnna waits to get her dress all laced up.
JoAnna makes one gorgeous bride, wouldn’t you say?
I love how thoughtful and sentimental JoAnna is. She wanted her soon to be husband Jeff to be the first one to see her all done up so we cleared the area and snuck JoAnna out the back stairs for her first look moments with Jeff.
I love these moments between my couples! Check out those smiles!
Their ceremony was held on open air patio over a bubbling brook. I love the look of happy anticipation on JoAnna’s face as her Father walks her down the aisle.
One of my favorite moments to capture is the announcement of the new Mr. and Mrs. at the close of the ceremony. It’s always such a joyous moment!
Then it was time to celebrate the happy new couple! There were drinks and laughs and hugs all around before we snuck off for some more portraits.
JoAnna and Jeff are just so sweet together.
Hello, gorgeous! One of my favorite portraits of JoAnna that I took that day.
The reception was decked out in a classic red, black and white theme that looked so elegant. And the twinkle lights added warmth to the room.
JoAnna’s Father gave such a touching speech to his daughter and his new son in law.
Congrats you two! I have to say that I really enjoyed getting to know the both of you and getting to experience the love and connection you both have with your family and friends. Thanks for being so great. 🙂
