Mr and Mrs Moore

What’s better than Ferris wheels, ice cream sandwiches, and a couple in love?  Really, nothing.  Weddings like this make me love my job more than I already do.  Not because of the Ferris wheel or Cool Haus ice cream sandwiches.  Those were icing on the cake.  No, weddings like this where there is so much love make me realize how lucky I am to do what I do.  All the guests were so happy to be there.  So genuinely happy for this couple to start their lives together.  Ryan couldn’t take his eyes off of Nichole.  Nichole couldn’t stop smiling.  There were tears of happiness and joy.  And laughter.  Lots of laughter.

Ryan and Nichole, thank you so much for allowing me to document your love for one another.  Not only was it great to work with you, but it was fun getting to know you two and your families.  You and your family and friends made me feel like a guest at your wedding rather than a vendor.  It was such an amazing day!  I hope you are having an amazing time on your honeymoon!  Here’s your slideshow!

Nichole’s Monique Lhuillier gown was perfect for her!

The flowers and wedding coordination were done by the awesome girls at The Hidden Garden Flowers

Nichole’s nieces are the cutest!  I took way too many pictures of them :)

In her toast, Nichole’s sister Korri said that Nichole is the best aunt.  I would have to agree.  She has a very special relationship with her nieces and nephew.

I love Calamigos Ranch!

I love the carnival decorations they had at their wedding!  It was all Nichole’s vision and they were made with help from her brother in law.

I’ve never seen the Ferris wheel actually used at Calamigos before.  It was very cool!

I really wish I would have thought of this for my wedding!  I might just have to do it for Kennedy’s first birthday!  Such a fun piece of art to hang in your home!

The chandeliers were brought in for the wedding!  Love them!

Another great DJ at this wedding.  11H Entertainment really kept the party going!

And my personal favorite… Cool Haus ice cream sandwiches.  Of course I had to try one.  They totally lived up to the hype!

Yvonne and Jon

Yvonne and Jon (I love that their names rhyme) met in med school.  At that other big University in Los Angeles.  That isn’t UCLA.  And won’t be mentioned on my blog ;)   They matched at the same hospital for their residency and moved far away to a cold land called Wisconsin where they now live and practice medicine.

We’d been planning their engagement shoot for a very, very long time and had a few set backs, but it turned out great!  Yvonne and Jon love to cook together and they are both really good at it!  So, we went to the Westwood farmers market and bought the ingredients for a beautiful meal.  They rented an amazing condo in Marina Del Rey where they prepared their dinner and enjoyed a romantic dinner for two.  Well, I’m not sure if it was super romantic with me there clicking away, but we had a fun time!

Jon and Yvonne are getting married next May at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles.  It’s going to be amazing!  Especially because Platinum Weddings by Kerrie is coordinating (thanks for the referral Kerrie!).

Yvonne and Jon, I had so much fun spending the day with you two!  I especially enjoyed the Diddy :)   Thank you for the amazing cupcakes and cute baby gift.  Kennedy wears the socks daily!  She even laughs at them when she sees them in the mirror of her baby gym!  Can’t wait for your wedding next year!  Here’s your slideshow!

I didn’t realize that the bag had their initials on it until the end of the shoot.  I’m a nerd, but isn’t the monogram cute???
