THE RUBY STREET WEDDING | LOS ANGELES, CA

ken and prin were married at the ruby street in highland park, los angeles.

The Ruby Street’s historical charm and unique design elements were on full display at this January wedding in LA coordinated and planned by Chloe + Mint.

The couple opted to include elements of travel in their decor, such as a world map seating chart of locations that Ken and Prin have visited together to guide guests to their rustic and simple tables. The ceremony took place in front of the iconic stained glass window and greenery hung from the exposed wooden beams. The couple wanted to have a laid back family style dinner and games outside during cocktail hour. Their untraditional donut cake from Donut Friend added to the whimsy and fun of the day.

Enjoy this Los Angeles wedding at The Ruby Street!

WILDFLOWER VINTAGE WEDDING| REPTACULAR ANIMALS RANCH | SYLMAR, CA

Cheryl and Jared 's Reptacular Ranch wedding in the hills behind Sylmar, CA was truly a boho vintage dream.

This hidden gem of a venue inspired the entire feel of the wedding; the rustic surroundings and exotic animals melded perfectly with the colorful Wildflower Vintage theme. From taking photos with Vinny the Zebra (who was in a bit of a "wild" mood), to the local ranch cat deciding that the back of the wedding cake was going to be his dinner, animals truly ruled this wedding. The wedding was a labor of love for the bride and groom and their close friends and family, who helped with everything from collecting and making the boho vintage decor, to assembling the perfectly undone wildflower bouquets and flower crowns. One of the most impressive details was Cheryl's wedding dress from 1877 that was brought into the 21st century by the amazing Johnny Sakalis (whose wedding I was lucky enough to shoot). Cheryl's flower crown, lace up boots and gold velvet belt completed her romantic yet whimsical wedding style. I was so sad to hear that the ranch owners, who live on the property, had their house destroyed during the Creek Fire. They have since been fundraising to rebuild and it is business as usual with weddings on the ranch.

MILDRED E. MATHIAS BOTANICAL GARDEN AT UCLA | LOS ANGELES, CA

Farnoush and Sam chose the botanical gardens at UCLA for their wedding photography session. This was my first time shooting at the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden and I highly recommend it for wedding and engagement photography sessions in Los Angeles. The gardens are lush and green with such a great variety of locations. One minute I felt like we were shooting in the spring bloom and the next minute we were crunching through the fall leaves. Farnoush's baby rose crown and high low gown gave a real boho feel to this Los Angeles session. Congrats to Farnoush and Sam!
