A Sweet Sunland Wedding

When Melanie and Sterling asked me to be their photographer at their wedding on July 8th,  I was super stoked and honored!  Not only are they both amazing artists,  they also happen to be the coolest, nicest, sweetest people you could possibly imagine.

To sum it up in two words:  Perfect harmony! I have never seen a more relaxed  and gracious bride and a more easy going groom, surrounded by a tight circle of  friends and family, as well as their kids. Truly amazing. And I got to shoot some film again, yay!!!

Beautiful Melanie looking so radiant and happy.

A dream of a dress, a vintage Proenza Schouler. Honestly, it looked as if it was made for Melanie!

The Ketubah, designed by Sterling.


Their wedding was super personal and intimate as can be, there was so much love in the air that day….!  Ceremony and reception were held on the grounds of the couple’s gorgeous residence in Sunland. The flowers looked as if they came from a meadow close by, lovingly plucked while humming a love song!  (Great job Hollyflora!) The ceremony took place under a Chuppah custom designed by the groom, perfectly blending in with the beautiful oak trees all around.

Animal provided the super yummy catering.


The couple with Sylvie, their adorable daughter.


And isn’t that the cutest wedding cake ever? Proof bakery came up with all that preciousness! So damn pretty with those little chamomile flowers, just gorgeous!

Melanie and Sterling asked to cut their cake in privacy without much ado, I am still in awe how they also managed to sneak away right after their ceremony to spend a few minutes all by themselves, cherishing the beginning of their new life as husband and wife.
