From Blissfully Illuminated Fine Art Photography… Capturing the love between Marissa and Davin on their wedding day was such a joy! After shooting their urbex engagement, we couldnt wait to see their beautiful wedding would be like.
M + D chose the Wayfarers Chapel in Racho Palos Verdes, California to say their I do’s. Seated on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean in a garden of young redwoods, the glass chapel was designed by Llyod Wright to be natural sanctuary. Marissas elegant lace wedding gown paired with the modern and romantic architecture of the chapel was breathtaking!
Their reception was held at the Cabrillo Marina in San Pedro. The bride and groom shared their vision with their friend and designer, Liz Mahlo, who brought the marina to life with bold colors and patterns, vintage props, and one of our favorite decorations – the ribbon divider! Marissa shared one of the sweetest dances with her father while her brother played a ukulele version of Butterfly Kisses. Twinkling lights strung across the courtyard amplified the romance of the evening, and laughter and silly dancing filled the dance floor. As the sun set and the moon rose higher, Davin serenaded his wifey under the stars with his guitar, with friends and family singing along. All of the love in the air pointed to one thing the love between M+D is brings great joy to everyone around them, and they will surely be missed! The happy couple departed the next day for their honey-move to Hawaii, where they will make their new home together. We couldn’t be happier for them! Mahalo, and blessings, to M+D!
