Whimsical Hollywood Engagement Session

I feel like I could float on the tails of one of those balloons straight up to the moon! This LA engagement session simply has everything: love, confetti and, thanks to Sugarfix, delectable cookies. Also, have to give props to the bride-to-be for the super chic Parker and Alice and Olivia frocks. So feel free to wander through the wonderland-inspired shoot with Christine Farah's lovely photographs from the day.

From the Bride... Since our wedding was going to take place at The London West Hollywood, we wanted to create two different themes using this modern and chic venue. The theme of our engagement session took place in the garden area of the hotel which resembles an Alice in Wonderland charm. We recreated the tea party scene by having a luscious dessert table filled with "eat me" and "i do" cookies, white frosted cupcakes with mini hearts, confetti, and a splash of red and white flowers. We also wanted to incorporate the black and white chess board with the enormous chess pieces and have some playful shots. From there, we wanted to share the place we call home- and photograph ourselves on the Los Angeles 4th Street Bridge in the Arts District which is a mere 1,000 feet away from our backdoor. For this look, we wanted to create an elegant and more formal wear with a longer pale pink dress and a blazer and bow tie. As the sun was setting, we took a quick little jaunt over to the state historic park and continued capturing the warm sun setting while throwing confetti and being surrounded by love...
