Elegant Garden Wedding | Descanso Gardens | Ben & Julia

 Descanso Gardens has always been one of my favorite places.  My Nana loved gardening & I remember visiting Descanso when I was young.  My Mom, sister & I have carried on the tradition & now visit with my niece & nephew.

Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to shoot a wedding in this place that I'd grown up admiring.  But this wedding with Alicia Danielle Photography exceeded my expectations.  From Julia's absolutely stunning lace Ellis Bridal gown from Mary Me Bridal, to her amazing cathedral veil, to her beautiful Badgley Mischka heels, to the flowy Jenny Yoo, blush tulle bridesmaids gowns, to the stunning Oak Forrest ... I could go on forever!  Our day started at the gorgeous Langham Hotel in Pasadena where Julia & her bridesmaids were getting ready.  Next, we arrived at Descanso Gardens to photograph Ben & his groomsmen in the Boddy House.  Descanso Gardens is one of those exceptional venues that is picture perfect everywhere you look.  Congratulations Ben & Julia!  All of the hard work you put into planning this day went off without a hitch & was executed brilliantly!
