Katie and Jon didn’t book me until about four months before their wedding day in August, but it turned out to be one of my absolute favorites of 2014.
These two, OH MAN. So much sweetness and excesses of joy to go around. And Katie has immaculate taste; she designed this Tuscan-inspired wedding day herself, and Carly Rae Weddings helped execute the day flawlessly.
Katie and Jon selected Palihouse in Santa Monica for getting ready and seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day; this boutique hotel was a perfectly chic choice for bride and groom portraits before heading to Katie’s parents’ home for the ceremony. The bride’s dress was a custom Claire Pettibone gown, and she wore a family heirloom emerald cuff bracelet; her earrings and necklace were also inherited from her two grandmothers.
Part two at Katie’s parents’ house is coming soon!
