SNEAK PEEK: A COLORFUL WEDDING AT REDONDO BEACH HISTORIC LIBRARY

Romantic and colorful modern multicultural wedding couple share a sweet first look.
 
Sometimes a photographer sends along a sneak peek SO good, it just needs to be shared.
Immediately.

Thank you Jenny Smith & Co. for these gorgeous photos, I’m so excited to see the rest!
But for now…
 
Beautiful bride and bridesmaids in white, peach, and mint saris carrying bold, colorful, and luxurious blooms.
 
How gorgeous are Sammy and her ladies?

I designed their colorful & luxe bouquets with their peach + mint saris in mind, but this joyful capture exceeds all my expectations!
 
Modern Sri Lankan Bride with colorful, luxury bridal bouquet, beautiful hair flowers, and a gorgeous flowing veil.
 
Sammy’s modern Sri Lankan Bridal ensemble is pretty dang perfect too.

I loved creating a modern take on a traditional headpiece and would encourage all my clients to put MORE flowers in their hair, please and thanks! πŸ˜‰
 
The cutest couple exit the church after their colorful wedding!
 
This just-married-full-of-joy photo gets me every time.
But especially when my clients are as fabulous as these two!
 
A private lei exchange on the beach featuring beautiful maile stye ti leaf lei and fragrant tuberose lei.
 
I also really love when my couples fill their wedding days with meaningful aspects of their culture + personality.

Carey’s family has a special connection to Hawaii, and so they chose to do a lei exchange on the beach following their ceremony. We even had the tuberose shipped in from Hawaii because that smell just cannot be imitated.
 
The cutest couple share an intimate moment on the beach for a private lei exchange featuring orchids, ti leaf, & tuberose following their wedding ceremony. The bride wears an ornate yet modern take on a Sri Lankan floral headpiece featuring ranunculus, spray roses, and eucalyptus.
 
Huge congratulations Sammy & Carey!
What an honor & a joy it was to fill your wedding day with beautiful blooms!
 
A joyful + just married couple lead a second line to their wedding reception!
 
Oh! And did I mention they had a brass band for their cocktail hour + a second line?
Truly a couple after my own heart.
