Once upon a time, at a wedding in California, a beautiful photographer and a handsome actor were the first to arrive for the ceremony. Strangers that day, they had no way of knowing that the next time they met at a wedding, it would be their own.
It was our absolute honour and delight to photograph the wedding of Marissa & Huntington in Los Angeles, California!
Marissa is a talented wedding photographer who’s work is intimidatingly awesome. She is kind, warm, inviting, and passionate. Huntington is a talented actor (Lethal Weapon, Sleepy Hollow, Bad Santa 2). He is kind, warm, inviting, and passionate. Their wedding, as you might imagine, was warm, inviting, and passionate. But that’s an understatement. The celebration was so much more that just the sum of Marissa and Huntington. What they ignite in each other, and amongst their friends and family, is exponential, and a treasure to watch and photograph. It was like a wildfire of warmth, kindness and passion, filling our hearts and frames.
Now, writing about “Marissa & Huntington” actually feels somewhat incomplete. “Marissa & Huntington & Zoe” is more like it. Their beautiful dog was a part of it all… practically one of the ladies throughout the morning… which was warm and inviting and beautiful. Marissa relaxed in a bubble bath, shared laughs and tears with friends and family, and integrated beautiful Jewish traditions like whispering secret advice to the bride. This was so poised and full of emotion, even through the room was silent. Meanwhile, Huntington and the boys were filling their morning with sports, hot tubs, cold tubs, saunas, beers & tears.
The remarkable Terranea Resort set the stage for everything. And what a stage it was. Their outdoor ceremony took place atop an idyllic sea cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean! It was extraordinary, but the intimate moments stole the show. And so did the food. And so did the heart felt speeches. And so did the band! Seriously, this band knocked everybody’s socks off!
