This is a love story.
Sometimes, a wedding day sweeps you up in the sheer luxurious beauty of dresses, flowers, cakes, and skillful design. Sometimes, the beauty of all of those things just falls into the background as the story of two people who are crazy in love unfolds in front of you. This was one of those days.
While everything about Catherine and Alex’s wedding day was lovely – creamy light on scarlet shoes as we shot details at the Avia Hotel in Long Beach, a striking wedding cake with the cutest toppers, and the most adorable flower girls/ringbearer team you’ve ever seen – all of that paled in comparison to the sparks that flew between Cat and Alex, and their words of love to each other. (PLUS the most unique unity ceremony ever!) It was impossible not to get caught up in their happiness, their humor, their love.
I am so excited to share this story with you, highlighted by Candice Benjamin‘s beautiful photos of the day.
Congratulations, Catherine and Alex! It was such a joy to spend this day with you, and to see your love shine.
