Crystal + Rome
When I look back at these wedding images, it brings a huge smile to my face, just reliving all the wonderful moments that were shared throughout each part of this day. Let me back up by saying Crystal and Roman are freaking RAD! They have the best style (which I knew from the second I met them and continued to obsess over during their engagement session), they have the sweetest families, and such great friends; the perfect recipe for an epic wedding day! They started dating 14+ years ago, so being able to watch them make this decade and half love story official was so special. Since they had a church ceremony, they didn’t have a first look, which only made that 14 year wait that much sweeter when she walked down the aisle. The way these two look at one another makes you feel as though you’ve just read some epic love story! Speaking of, check out their wedding favors towards the end of this post; personalized stamps of the two of them inside a Love Poems Book, which is so apropos given Roman’s a librarian! So cool, right?!
The LA Athletic Club is one of my favorite venues-I love all the detail that’s gone into each space and we had a great time shooting all around that day. I could honestly photograph these two for HOURS (don’t worry though, I stuck to the timeline, but damn they’re just so stunning)! I just couldn’t get enough of Crystal’s off the shoulder custom made gown and Rome’s killer white tux! I mean COME ON! They are just winning at life!
Thank you guys! Being there to celebrate with you was such a treat and I’m so excited for what the future will bring you two perfectly in love humans! Lots of love xoxo
And a BIG thanks to all the unbelievably talented vendors!!
