Brant and Esther are MARRIED!!!

Brant and Esther met online back in 2014 (how cool is this – Esther grew up in the Netherlands!) and after a while of chatting, they became best friends. It wasn’t long before they realized they were perfect for each other and dove into a long distance relationship across the world!

Brant proposed to Esther at the top of the St. Vitus Cathedral while traveling in Prague (how romantic is that?!) and after months of wedding planning and a handful of complications, they decided to say their vows at sunset on the beach in Santa Monica, CA – officiated and surrounded by friends! It was such a beautiful evening and the happiness exuded from the bride and groom! Following the intimate ceremony in the sand, we headed to P.F. Changs and continued celebrating the newlyweds with dinner, drinks and dessert!

Brant and Esther – I am so beyond excited for you guys and cannot thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your special day!! I cannot wait to see what comes next for you both in this next chapter of life together!!

Intimate Yacht Wedding | Hornblower Cruises | Newport Beach, CA Wedding Photographer | Lianna & Kevin

Working with these two and their families was a dream!

Lianna and Kevin are high school sweethearts. They met in the 9th grade when they were introduced through mutual friends during gym class and ever since then, they have come to know each other and grow in love! Then, in October 2014, Kevin planned the most beautiful proposal! While on vacation in Hawaii, he took Lianna hiking and proposed on the beautiful DiamondHead Trail in O’ahu! How incredibly sweet is that?!

Their intimate Newport Beach wedding day was SO full of happiness! The day began with the lovebirds and their families getting ready at the gorgeous Balboa Bay Resort. Lianna and Kevin shared a romantic first look right by the marina and we then traveled to Inspiration Point for a few ocean view photos.

Their nautical themed ceremony and reception was aboard the Hornblower yacht in Newport Beach. I loved every little detail incorporated into Lianna and Kevin’s day – from the custom made sail boat candle holders, seashells adorning the tables, beautiful floral pieces (by the very talented Merci Bouquet) and the AMAZINGLY delicious (and gorgeous!) cake (by Pacific Patisserie).

It was such an honor working with and getting to know these two and their families. Congratulations to Lianna and Kevin!
