best burbank castaway wedding photographer

Every girl wants her dream wedding to be a fairy tale … but this wedding was literally a fairy tale!  The Burbank Castaway was the perfect venue and backdrop for Valerie and Eric’s wedding.  I knew it was going to be an fantastical day because Valerie mentioned during her engagement session that the theme would be “once upon a time in an enchanted forest.”  She really went above and beyond at making that a reality!  The decor and floral arrangements were unreal for this story book wedding.  I was in heaven photographing all of the amazing details.  Check out this collage below of all the intricate mushroom centerpieces and whimsical touches!  Butterflies were a major part of the day and they even released a couple during their ceremony.  The flower girls wore tinker bell dresses and the ring bearer carried the rings down the aisle in a delicate birds nest.

Valerie was one of those DIY brides that thrived during the wedding planning process, and I can tell she truly enjoyed creating her dream fairly tale wedding.  I’m so impressed with her creativity and talent.  She not only applied her own wedding makeup for the day, but she also made her feather bouquet as well!  On top of being a planner extraordinaire — she is also an incredible singer.  She sang a sweet song to her new husband during the reception and everyone in the room was just enraptured.  There was nothing this bride couldn’t do, and I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to capture this day and all of the specials moments and details from her wedding.  Looking at these photos is like having a glimpse into a dreamy wonderland.

One butterfly did not want to leave after it was released during the ceremony.  It clung onto Valerie’s dress for awhile and finally took off after their first kiss.  I thought this was a sign and just so very special!

Here is part 2 of Tanya and David’s wedding photos!  Be sure to check out part 1 if you missed it.

The vow exchange ceremony and wedding reception took place the Crowne Plaza Resort and Hotel in Anaheim.  Can you believe they hosted over 350 guests?  And that Tanya planned this entire event by herself?!  I have to give her major props because she should definitely be a wedding planner in her next life!  :)  The asian banquet style reception was so fun and full of festivities.  They had a string quartet playing during the ceremony and cocktail hour and it was a classy and beautiful event over all.  So happy to have been a part of this memorable day!

This couple is so darling. They booked me for their wedding without ever meeting me in person but I knew that we would be a great fit because they were so kind and considerate even on the phone! Huan and Theresa brought a few stuffed polar bears to our engagement session and I thought the story behind them was so cute.  Theresa has had a dear set of polar bears since college and she always knew that she would give one of them to the person she would marry one day. And that person is Huan! I love that idea and thought it was so meaningful to include them as props for their photo session.

woodland hills country club golf course

I’m so excited to share this wedding!  Nina and Felix were recently married under a gorgeous gazebo at the beautiful Woodland Hills Country Club.  The golf course grounds are just breath-taking and perfect for formal bridal portraits.  Perhaps the best part of the day (for me) was the opportunity to photograph Nina and Felix’s sweet pup that was part of the wedding ceremony!  He is definitely their fur-baby so I made sure to capture lots of photos of his adorable face.  It’s pretty rare to find dog friendly wedding venues in Southern California, so I was beyond ecstatic when I learned he would be there.

Nina and Felix’s wedding was just the right size and included their nearest and dearest.  I love how enthusiastic Felix’s groomsmen were.  They had so much energy throughout the day!  Felix’s friend was the officiant and he insisted on doing a selfie with Felix right before Nina walked down the aisle!  I thought that was so funny.  The reception was wonderful and full of great speeches from many of their wedding guests.  I love it when they open up the toasts portion of the evening and invite anyone and everyone to say something special to the bride and groom.  The wedding is a day to receive love from your loved ones, and Nina and Felix’s friends definitely showered them with lots of kind words!

The staff at Woodland Hills Country Club were so accommodating and friendly.  They took care of all of the wedding guests and even us wedding vendors so it was a joy to work there.  Check out these photos from Nina and Felix’s special day.  :)

Can I just say how incredibly gorgeous these two are?  I had so much fun taking photos during their formal portrait time.  I love the two images above, and especially this timeless portrait of Nina below.  Isn’t she just flawless?!
