Alexandra and Michael had a lovely intimate wedding at the Los Angeles Arboretum’s rose garden, a place I’ve shot at before and love returning to. I’ve been looking forward to this wedding since I met Alexandra and Michael many months ago. After having fun with them during their Disneyland engagement session, I knew I was in for a lovely day during their wedding. I was prepared for blistering heat, too, but thanks to our unseasonably mild summer the weather was beautiful and the temperatures lovely. It was a perfect day for a wedding.
Thank you, Alexandra and Michael, for allowing me to share in such a special day. It was truly an honor to witness the love you have for each other. Hope you had a wonderful honeymoon, now it’s time to enjoy married life! Here are a few of my favorites…
The day started at the apartment the couple shares where Alexandra stepped into her gorgeous Maggie Sottero dress. The stunning hair and makeup on Alexandra and her bridesmaids is the work of Kelly Zhang‘s team.
iXora Floral Studio are responsible for the amazing flowers.
I love the way these two look at each other. So much love!
Alexandra and Michael allowed lots of time for portraits around the Arboretum, which was a lot of fun for me!
So, Michael proposed to Alexandra at their favorite restaurant and, unbeknownst to her, had someone filming the entire proposal. He shared the video with everyone at the reception and it was quite sweet.
