The Santa Monica mountains and clear blue skies overhead serve as the perfect backdrop for this rustic wedding.

The bride grasps her bouquet made of delicate pink and white roses accented with baby's breath.

The groom and his groomsmen prepare for the big day in a cedar-lined cabin with mounted deer heads.

The bride chose a comfy yet cute pair of metallic thong sandals.

The bride-to-be looking quite regal in her layered lace wedding gown.

A weeping willow towers over guests as they take their places on wooden chairs.

The ruggedly handsome groom sports a cool khaki vest and matching trousers.

Fresh greenery borders the stunning outdoor ceremony.

The deed is done!

The happy couple take a joyful stride down the aisle as husband and wife.

Bridesmaids wear grayed jade dresses while holding a divine bouquet of pink peonies and peach roses.

The newlyweds take a romantic stroll through the green gardens on their way to the reception.

Dinner takes place outside on a quaint brick-paved patio.

The couple receive a round of applause from their guests as they arrive to the reception.

A live band plays as the couple takes the dance floor.

Custom wood-carved initials sit atop the gorgeous three-tiered cake.

The abundant foliage makes for the most magical photos.

Soft candlelight and..

...twinkle lights add the perfect ambiance as the sun goes down.

Happy ever after!

“The style of the photos was exactly how our wedding felt. Even when I look at the photos now, it feels like I am reliving my wedding. They captured the fun moments and the tears of joy. Their pictures were candid and modern while also capturing classic moments that we will surely end up showing our family for years to come. They were wonderful.”

“Their portfolio is amazing and between the two of them they have an incredible amount of experience with all kinds of events.”

“John and Colette are extraordinary professional photojournalists and extraordinary artists!”
