You know it’s going to be a beautiful wedding when one of the first things the groom tells you as he greets you down in the lobby of their hotel is how nervous he is; but that he’s nervous simply because he wants everything to be absolutely perfect for his bride on her wedding day.
I have had the tremendous honor of getting to watch these two grow closer and stronger as a couple over the past year and it has been so beautiful and inspiring to witness their journey. I have been in a constant state of awe watching the way these two treat and care for one another. They are not only one of the hardest working couples I know, but through it all they still manage to consistently put the other person first and go out of their way to make sure the other is happy and taken care of. They work hard every day to create a bigger and better life for each other and I just cannot wait to see where life takes them in the coming years!
From the second these two showed up for their engagement session back in December (if you haven’t seen those images yet, you can find them here) I just knew their wedding was going to be absolutely beautiful. But even I couldn’t have imagined just how stunning it was actually going to be!
The Wedding Day
They got ready at the beautiful and chic W Hotel in Hollywood, then we spent the rest of the day at the incredibly gorgeous Taglyan Cultural Complex for both their ceremony and reception. From the beautiful fountain and garden area outside to the jaw-dropping ballroom inside (trust me, your jaw will drop when you see this place!); this venue was absolutely perfect for Kristen and Paul’s beautiful, classy and elegant wedding!

Kristen and Paul, you two are such gems and I’m so incredibly honored to have been a part of your wedding day. Your beauty (inside and out) and love for one another just radiates and I wish you all the happiness in the world! I’m so excited for you and this next chapter in your lives (and uhh, I can’t wait until you have little kiddos… they are going to be ridiculously gorgeous!) ;)
