I am so excited to share this elegant Ritz Carlton Marina Del Rey wedding with y’all on this happy Friday!Jen + Eric are one of my favorite couples! I have loved Jen since I met her a year ago, where she booked me on the spot! Jen is the perfect combo of witty, genuine, sweet and stylish! And Eric is so warm and caring too. These two are the perfect pair. They have embraced each others values, dreams and even sporting teams! And you can tell how deeply they love one another when they look into each others’ eyes… they just radiate! All day Jen was full of big smiles! Clearly, she was beyond giddy to finally be marrying the man of her dreams!
Jen’s elegant style was totally in every detail of the day, from her stunning Priscilla of Boston gown, to the chic purple and yellow color palette, to the adorable candy bar! The day was also infused with many Jewish traditions, from a touching Ketubah signing, to the breaking of the glass, to a crowd pumping Hora (which, Jen, I SWEAR I didn’t ask the DJ to play…hehe)! But more than anything it was the love between Jen + Eric and the way all their friends and family rallied around them to celebrate that made this day so special! I am so honored I got to document it!
Jen’s accessories were just as lovely as her gown!!
I love the sweet moment on the right… Jen’s mom helping her into her dress!!!
I mean, really, does it get any cuter than this?! I loveee happy brides!
I also love a little bit of fierceness… Jen worked out the diva poses fabulously too!!!
This is the excitement and joy that comes with doing a First Look! Why would anyone want to pass this up?!?
Because their Jewish Ceremony coincided with sundown, we did all their romantic portraits beforehand! It was great! How gorgeous are these two?!?
My personal fave shot of the day…
Their massive bridal party joined in on the modeling fun… check out this “vanity fair” style shot!
Girls like to play Diva, what can I say!
Jen glowed as she walked down the aisle! I mean really! The look on her face says it all!
I was truly touched to see how emotional the bridesmaids became during the ceremony! You could see how much they loved Jen and how happy they were to witness her marriage!
The reception was very elegant!
I always love a candy bar!
I also always LOVE a Hora! Jen didn’t want to do one… but some relatives requested it and well… when 100 Jews hear the Hava Nagila began to play it’s pretty impossible to stop them from getting their Mazel Tov on!! I know, because I am Jewish too! 😉
Mazel tov, indeed! These two were so smitten! So glad their day turned out just as perfect as they hoped!!
