Jessica and Robert were recently married at the romantic Yamashira Restaurant in Hollywood. If you’ve never been — it’s a must do! The restaurant is a mini-replica of a Japanese palace and holds a stunning collection of Japanese art and historical artifacts. The views of the Hollywood Hills are amazing during the day and even better at night.
This wedding was one of the smallest I’ve ever been to. The ceremony took place in the Garden Courtyard and the reception was held in the Koi Room. There were 14 people in attendance (including the bride and groom!) and it was an intimate and wonderful affair. Small weddings are amongst my most favorite to photograph, and this one is at the top of my books. The beautiful bride and handsome groom were relaxed, there was plenty of time to mingle with each guest individually, and the speeches were so encouraging and heartfelt. Almost everyone present had a chance to say a few meaningful words to the new couple. Even though the dinner reception was laid back and fairly casual, Jessica and Robert still took the chance to do an impromptu first dance and formal cake cutting. I loved everything about their wedding, and hope you enjoy these photos from their special day!
Can I just say how much I love her shoes and accessories?! Jessica chose to invest in her jewelry and shoes in lieu of an expensive dress, and I thought that was such a great idea! She had pearl earrings, necklace and a bracelet from Tiffany’s and gorgeous silver Jimmy Choo Kafta heels that she can wear again and again after the wedding day. Such a smart gal.
