Colorful Wedding at Fig House

This wedding has officially pushed the envelope of pretty. Crafted from the heart and perfectly planned by Weddings By RedLight, this quirky yet elegant affair at The Fig House is the definition of fun. From the bridesmaids’ bright heels to the florals in the Bride’s hair, every detail captured by Mark Brooke Photography is pure gallery perfection and has stolen my heart.


From Mark Brooke PhotographersMeagan and Martin mixed tradition and color to their wedding day. They where married in their beautiful church surrounded by friends and family. Following was their Reception at the new LA venue, the Fig House, where color, details, and Art exploded from every inch of the space.

They wanted the opposite of stuffy. The reception felt like a big family party. Everyone knew everyone and the live band brought everyone to their feet for a night of dancing and celebrating. Between the art on the walls, the dessert table that had 7 different cakes, the vibrant colors, and comfy couches, Megan and Martins wedding was one of a kind.

From The Bride…Martin was a musician for a local Tahitian Dance company that Meagan danced for, and often carpooled to practices where they spent their time talking, eating, learning about each other, and falling in love. Four years later, on a vacation to Tahiti, Martin proposed to Meagan on the beach. When planning the wedding, we wanted to create an event that celebrated our love as well as our individual style. The Fig House in LA was the perfect venue that boasted a beautiful outdoor and indoor space. With over 200 guests, the space created an intimate and cozy environment for our family and friends.

Morning of Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Speaking as a bride-to-be, this lovely shoot is exactly what my wedding dreams are made of. Kurt Boomer captured the innocence of a quite morning echoed by the Gossamer gown and perfectly pink lips. Meanwhile, the anticipation of her complexion draped in a delicate veil perfectly flatters Heirloom Design House blushing blooms. You will want to light a candle in honor of one of the most beautiful galleries ever


From Kurt BoomerThe idea behind this inspirations shoot was the feeling of the morning of Theresa’s wedding. Capturing the anticipation and nervousness a couple goes through when the start of their life together is imminent. Rehearsing the day in her mind, repeating the vows written down and reading the love letter left the night before.

Every bride has been a unique experience in photographing before the ceremony. The times I enjoy the most are the reflection on the relationship that both couples seem to go through. The small bit of quiet in the sometimes hectic nature of the wedding day. I hoped to capture this time of the day in these images.
