Tie the Knot in Pacific Palisades: St. Monica and Bel-Air Bay Club Love Stories

The Wedding Day

Michelangelo and Christina’s wedding was such a fantastic experience.  Their religious ceremony was at St Monica’s Church the architecture is outstanding. The reception was at Bel Air Bay Club. Working with Wish Wonder Dream was a joy, the entire team was amazing, I have such a passion for details and Wish Wonder Dream delivers. The day was flawless and everyone who traveled from Italy and the East Coast had a wonderful time, my clients wanted the Exit with flower petals it was beautiful! The night at Bel-Air was wonderful, the flog arrived and we were able to capture some incredible images with the now husband and wife.

The Wedding venue is Bel Air Bay Club

I love Bel-Air Bay Club 100% because you get the best of both worlds, The views of the Pacific Ocean, are 180º from end to end and I love that when I arrive to photograph a wedding, the ocean air is crisp and clean.

The Bel-Air Bay Club private mansion built in 1927 is all about providing the luxury and convenience every wedding deserves, with an onsite staff to offer assistance. Bel-Air Bay Club is part of the Emerald Distinguished Clubs of the World, meeting the standards set by Boardroom Magazine, and offering one of the most prestigious memberships.

As one of the most exclusive private clubs in Los Angeles, Bel-Air Bay Club lives up to client expectations. Following an extensive renovation of the Lower Bay in 2007, BABC has recently been refurbished and updated to exude modern haute living with a touch of vintage class.

St Monica’s Church Located in Santa Monica, California

Once you arrive at this magnificent location, the tone as you enter St, Monica’s is incredible. One of my favorite churches to photograph weddings in Southern California. The good thing about St Monica’s is that family portraits can be done right after the religious ceremony, the location is well and the grounds are stunning. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a church to get married. Well located within minutes of Bel-Air Bay Club, Loews, Huntley Hotel, and only 5-star hotels in St Monica.
