Intimate Destination Wedding

New Jersey natives Agnes and Mike chose to have their dream nuptials in Southern California. The result was a lovely, intimate event, with the bridal party consisting of Mike’s two daughters and Agnes’s sister and best friend. This wedding turned out to be the perfect celebration of their unique love story.


The chosen destination for getting ready and taking first look photographs was the Beverly Hills Hotel. The experience in this historical landmark was magical. The bride and groom requested that everyone attending the destination wedding dress in white, including the Jane Alexandra event planning staff and myself. Combining this whimsical aesthetic with the old Hollywood glamour backdrop of the Beverly Hills Hotel was breathtaking. It was a gorgeous first part of their big day.


Agnes and Mike decided to hold their ceremony and reception at Nobu Malibu, a Japanese restaurant with beautiful views. The ceremony was a concise, sweet tribute to the love Agnes and Mike have for each other. It was oustanding and beautifully said in just a few meaningful words. Everyone in the room could truly feel how rich their love is. The reception venue was perfect for this intimate party. Everyone chatted and laughed with each other over delicious (and beautifully made) Japanese food.

The Jane Alexandra event planning staff did a wonderful job securing each piece of this beautiful event. Agnes and Mike are from New Jersey, they put a lot of trust in Jane and her team to create an unforgettable day. Southern California treated the bride and groom well on this perfect day. Agnes and Mike were such a joy to work with and their happiness shines through in all of the memories I had the pleasure of capturing.
