This past Sunday I had a blast capturing Brandi & Court’s wedding at The Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles. You may remember Brandi & Court from their amazing engagement session posted here on my blog a few months ago. Their wedding day was even more amazing! Keep reading for more details about their day and some of my favorite images.
The Vibiana, which opened in 1876, was the official cathedral of Los Angeles for over 100 years. In recent years it has been converted into a beautiful event space that hosts many weddings, special events, and Hollywood parties. You can read more about it’s history here.
I am so thankful for the talented Justin Gourley and Christian Bugay for coming out and giving me a hand at this outstanding wedding. The day wouldn’t of gone as smoothly and been nearly as much fun without their help.

After having a little too much fun the previous night the guys are taking it easy, before needing to get ready, by watching the hilarious “Talladega Nights”
Just before the ceremony

I love the way Brandi is looking at Court
Brandi looked stunning
Court managed to crack a smile after asking if he was all partied out from the previous night.

I just saw the pics from Iran….. such a shame I wasnt there to share this beautiful, lavish and elegant wedding with my very good friend Mahin and her handsome boys. Congradulations to all of you, especially to you courtney and your gorgeous wife. Thanks for these magnificent pictures, your photographer is a true artist…..I felt all the moments sitting in my kitchen 6000 miles away!
What beautiful photos. You captured everything so wonderfully that if I didn’t attend her wedding(although I did) I felt I did. What a wonderful way to enjoy the moment again. Your photography and Christian’s are top notch. I would recommend your company above all. Thanks for the memories. Barbara McWilliams
