Jonathan Club Wedding
I’ve known Leah for years, we used to work at J.CREW together! Leah and Arvin were one of the first couples to do a styled shoot for me when I first started my photography business. I always knew that they would get married but I was beyond thrilled and touched when they asked me to photograph their wedding.
Their ceremony was at the beautiful St. Dominic’s church in Eagle Rock and their reception was at the really posh Jonathan Club in downtown Los Angeles. I love the décor and architecture of the Jonathan Club. So many beautiful rooms to photograph in.
Two of my favorite moments from the wedding was when Leah’s father saw her for the first time. He was so happy. He gave her a speech and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. I also loved Arvin’s impromptu speech to Leah, which was so heartfelt and sweet.
What’s great about Leah and Arvin is their sense of humor. Leah threw her bouquet from above the room. When her little sister caught it she wanted a redo. It was so funny to watch guests throw a bouquet high up for Leah to toss again. I also thought it was funny when Arvin pulled out a light saber for the garter toss. Their guests were so much fun and showed it on the dance floor. I’m excited to do a trash the dress session with these two in Joshua Tree in July!
I wish them both a lifetime of happiness and look forward to capturing more special moments in their life in the future.
