rose & rod – 9.6.08

good morning everyone! i am thrilled to share these dreamy photos with you from a wedding i planned & coordinated last month at the breathtaking adamson house in malibu. rose and i connected in july and we planned the entire shindig in 7 weeks! the vision was for a casual yet elegant affair by the sea. the priorities: great food, a sense of ease and fun, and a killer view. everything fell into place beautifully on the big day and it was a joy to see the culmination of our plans in such a short span of time. i have planned a number of complete weddings in under 2 months. it just goes to prove that where there’s a will, there really is a way. πŸ˜‰

many thanks to rose & rod for inspiring me with their beautiful and tender relationship. i have a lot of lovey, affectionate couples, but rose & rod take the cake. πŸ˜‰ watching them interact made me grateful for what i have in my own life. it moved me. their love was palpable and evident to everyone around them. i think each guest was deeply impacted by witnessing their powerful bond. i bet you (reader) can even feel a bit of that love just looking at these photos. seriously…how blessed am i to do this for a living??

all photos are courtesy of the talented duo marlin & marlene munoz.Β  they are a dream to work with: easy going, passionate about their work, and able to produce stunning images like these…

perfect lighting at surfriders beach. rose’s romantic bouquet of red roses & a collar of magnolia leaves was crafted by kristin of the treasured petal.

rose walked up the aisle sans escort. but, she did make 5 “stops” along the aisle to collect 5 pieces of a bouquet from her best friends. this is why the bouquet looks a little disheveled here. πŸ˜‰ super-kris made two bouquets for this purpose: one 5 piece bouquet for the symbolic walk up the aisle, and one for photos.

the couple wore those grins all day long. i melt looking at their faces here!


i love this glimpse of the underside of the magnolia leaves. beautiful.

these two have this great vintage feel that i love.

pure joy.

his & hers accessories. πŸ˜‰

hope you’re all having a great week! i still have 3 weddings left in my 5 weddings in 5 weeks series; YEAHHH! there is a lot left in store this year and i can’t wait to share it with you.Β  for this weekend, you can say a little prayer that rain doesn’t dampen some awesome plans in progress.Β  i’m looking forward to a successful event either way!Β  πŸ˜‰

xoxo, angel
