Diana & Brian: The Wedding


I love January weddings.  I adore them so much I had one myself!   Life is settling down, it’s quiet, it’s the perfect time for a celebration!  Winter is a typically quiet time for me, and I get so excited to shoot something wonderful.  Something fun and fabulous and sweet.  And Diana & Brian had the absolute perfect wedding.  It was small and intimate, with amazing food, beautiful music and their closest family & friends.  It was simple, really emphasizing what is important for a wedding day, the joining of two people.

Diana & Brian were married at Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga, a lovely little place nestled into the mountains.  It was a warm, clear day for January, perfect shooting weather!  And Diana & Brian, well, they were glowing.  Actually, I think they’re always glowing… they just have that.  It’s just them.  And I can’t imagine a more wonderful way to begin my year!

Diana & Brian – I am so happy for the two of you!  It was an amazing day and I thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of it!  I wish you nothing but the best!  Congratulations!

Diana & Brian did something I’d never seen done before, a wine ceremony.  Their officiant talked about three different varietals of wine and their individual characteristics.  She then related these characteristics to Diana & Brians’ relationship.  It was so interesting and unique, I loved it!
