This past weekend was very surreal in LA. The expected “carmageddon” ended up being a non-event leaving nearly all the roads in LA free of traffic and allowing Joe & Paula’s wedding to go off without a hitch. The day started off with an intimate late morning ceremony and lunch at Lawry’s The Prime Rib in Beverly Hills. Keep reading below for more details about the day and some of my favorite images.
A few important details

After a 5 hour break it was time for the second part of Joe & Paula’s wedding day. We met about 1.5 hours before they were scheduled to make their entrance into their reception at The Standard in Downtown LA.
Just before we headed out to Union Station for a wedding day photo shoot with Joe & Paula a future bride and her girls had to congratulate Paula.
Paula wanted to have her ceremony at Union Station but it didn’t work out. I am glad Union Station is mostly photo-friendly so we could still get some amazing shots of her and Joe there. We started outside and used the sun before it went behind the buildings.
After sweet talking the head of security for the area we were able to get into a space Union Station reserves for special events. Here are some of my favorites along with some portraits of Joe & Paula.
