Sherwood Country Club Orthodox Jewish Wedding | Brian + Naomi

We had a great time photographing Brian and Naomi’s wedding at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. This was a beautiful traditional Jewish Orthodox wedding complete with the Tish and Bedeken ceremony. Naomi has a way of looking through the camera lens that is really amazing. She can definitely strike a pose. I’ve never seen a couple change into running shoes for the first dance before and I kept waiting for them to bust out into the “running man”.

Two things I really love about Jewish weddings. One, the Jewish culture really knows how to party. I’ve never been to a “boring” Jewish wedding! And two, the bride and groom always see one another before the ceremony to sign the Ketuba and marriage license. So because of this, we can usually meet a couple hours before the ceremony and have lots of photo time for the getting ready pictures, first look and family pictures before the ceremony. We always prefer this since the more time we have on wedding day for pictures, the better.  We loved working with Peggy from Events Specialist.  She ensured the day ran smoothly and it really did.

Destination Wedding at Jade Mountain St. Lucia

When Chris told me we booked a wedding in St Lucia, my bags we already packed. Photographing a Destination Wedding at Jade Mountain St. Lucia has been on our list of must see places for years. The luxurious Jade Mountain Resort may have been one of the best experiences with a camera I’ve ever had. Jade Mountain is known as one of the top luxury resorts in the Caribbean and is famous for its views, beauty, remoteness, and tranquility. Even the lobby at Jade Mountain is amazing, as it sits in the treetops overlooking the rainforest. The warm breeze and crystal blue water and bright green mountains greeted us to a Caribbean paradise. The local staff were so amazing, I felt my working vacation had officially started. Destination Wedding Photographers definitely have perks! Jade Mountain and Anse Chastai pride themselves on keeping the resort ‘One with Nature’. So with that philosophy, came a short hike up to a charming room balcony overlooking the forest, with an open air rooms, draped mosquito nets over the beds and no tv or phone. It felt nice to “unplug.” As charming as the songs of the birds, frogs and  insects were at night, it was so loud we actually needed earplugs to sleep!

The wedding ceremony took place overlooking the iconic Grand Pitons and the bay. Picture Postcard Perfection. A fun party ensued throughout the night on the beach, with the sweet island theme throughout! The next day, Lisa and Travis decided to go big with chartering a private catamaran for their guests and we did a fun trash the dress photoshoot on a remote beach. For those of you wondering about Trash the Dress sessions, here you go! What an adventure and what a wonderful place to tie the knot!

FOUR SEASONS RESORT THE BILTMORE WEDDING

Written by Andrea Schmitt

There are few wedding venues that rival the beauty of the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara. This Spanish-Mediterranean style hotel, considered one of the top wedding venues in California, is located at an incredible location right on the beach, and I can understand why Christian and Katherine chose it for their dream wedding. If you’ve never been, you must!

The bridesmaids and groomsmen looked like they were pulled from a wedding magazine spread, and Katherine looked like a supermodel with her stunning Jinza Jin Couture Bridal Dress and red soled Christian Louboutin heels.  They were a fun and beautiful group, with dance moves to boot! As you can see Christian and his entourage had me laughing from the start.  ‘Beautiful on the inside and out’, seemed to be the common theme with this couple, and the toasts were a testament as to what wonderful people Katherine & Christian are.  They really are a perfect match.

One of the highlights of the evening was the surprise dance that the couple had planned.  Christian showed off his charming dance moves and Katherine was swept off her feet to accompany him on the dance floor. The crowd roared and the dance floor got packed!  Then as a sweet ending of the night, Katherine surprised her new husband with his Canadian favorite – Poutine (fries & gravy).  So, like something out of a movie, the Canadians in the house began singing their national anthem. Gotta love those Canucks!
