Cristina & Nick's Long Beach Wedding

Cristina & Nick got married at Mary Star of the Sea Parish in San Pedro, California, and then partied the night away at Crafted, a massive homemade artisan marketplace at the Port of Los Angeles. Their big day was filled with family, a whole contingent of whom had flown all the way from Italy to celebrate the union. They incorporated amazing DIY details to showcase their shared love of Star Wars, from the cake topper to the invitations, dueling cornhole boards of the Rebel Alliance vs. the Galactic Empire, and guest seating listed on Han Solo and Princess Leia cutouts.  May the Force Be With Them as they start out on the new adventure of married life (I know, I know, but I had to do it).

Alena & Lou’s Malibu Beach Wedding

I met Alena and Lou at their engagement session at their alma mater, Harvey Mudd, and have been looking forward to their wedding ever since. They’re such a friendly, relaxed couple and I knew their wedding would be reflective of their laid back attitudes, unique personal touches and, of course, their love for each other. The big day finally arrived and everyone gathered at the gorgeous Malibu beach for the celebration. I was utterly charmed by the table decorations, with each table themed after one of their favorite books like Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. And those cake toppers! Alena and Lou as Hogwarts students, perfect in every detail from their house scarves to the tiny broomstick and wand.
