Ben & Aubrey // Romantic Mansion wedding at the Ebell of Los Angeles

FROM THE BRIDE // After a year of planning our dream wedding, it took almost a week for Ben and I to fully debrief our wedding experience together. One of his favorite recollections was just before our first look: he not only heard the click-clack of my footsteps, but also realized that he could hear his heart beating from excitement and anticipation. Those felt like the longest 20 seconds of his life, and he knew things were about to get real. I could relate: as I tapped him on his shoulder and saw his face light up, I suddenly felt a sudden wave of eagerness and joy. When the processional began, I walked toward him once again, this time as he stood beneath our lush, fragrant chuppah, before our family and friends. It might have been because of the lighting during the ceremony, but the only thing we could really focus on was each other. He took my hand as we said our vows—never without a wide, gleeful smile across our faces. 

The rest of our wedding can only be described as a magical blur! Although we spent a lot of time and energy painstakingly picking out ivory linens, white and blush floral arrangements, signature cocktails and decadent meals for our timeless affair, we didn’t get a chance to focus on any single detail that day. The best part of our wedding reception was seeing the Cheshire cat grins on our guests’ faces, as they danced the night away and knew they were part of the most special night of our lives.

Our advice for engaged couples is simple: You prepare for how you think you should feel during your wedding, but how you anticipate feeling is nowhere close to the overwhelming happiness you’ll experience as your wedding is actually happening (or recreating those feelings afterward while you look at your pictures). Stay in the moment, and take my Nana’s words to heart: don’t sweat the small stuff—it’s all small stuff.

    Such an honor to work on this wedding and what a fabulous job you did documenting it! Let me know if it’s possible to get some high resolution flower photos and I’d be happy to feature them with your photo credit . I’m in the process of putting together a new website and we now have a brand new cooperative workspace called The Wedding Hub.
    I look forward to hearing from you and working together again,

love-story

FROM WILL  //  We met over 6 years ago and went on our first date. The timing just wasn’t right, but the universe kept pushing us back together until we finally went on another date about 2 years ago. Since then, we have been inseparable and in love! We got engaged on the top of Rockefeller Center in NYC on December 30, 2012 after about a year of dating. Our love took us from our home of Albuquerque, New Mexico all the way to Ann Arbor, MI so that I could attend the University of Michigan’s PhD program in Educational Studies! We got married almost a year after our engagement on December 18, 2013 in Santa Ana, CA in the most perfect day possible: just the two of us jetted off to CA to experience our wedding and honeymoon before we headed back to NM to celebrate with friends and family!
