I was introduced to Julian & Alexandra through one of my favorite coordinators, Cathy Machado of An Event Two Be. She is seriously one of the best and truly amazing to work with, so be sure to check her out! At the time Julian & Alexandra were living in Paris so we set up a Skype Chat to talk about the day. After introducing them to Bear and Oliver – our kids/dogs who really wanted to see who was talking through the computer – we started talking more about their big day. We immediately hit it off and the more I learned about their wedding plans the more excited I got about being a part of it. I just knew it was going to be a beautiful, fun, and extremely memorable day in one of my favorite places to shoot – Catalina. The ceremony took place at the Descanso Beach Club with an amazing view of the crystal blue water and I was very excited to find out that their reception was to be held in the infamous Casino Ballroom! I have shot many times on Catalina and have always wanted to shoot inside the Casino Ballroom, and let me tell you, it is a gorgeous sight to behold. This was an absolutely stunning day full of style, fashion, laughter, tears, and love. I was thrilled to be a part of it and so glad to know Julian and Alexandra. They are two of the happiest people I have met with a zest for life and adventure. They are truly a perfect match.
