Nick and Ken met during their college years. They met during a creative arts class that started a huge trend in their relationship- a passion for handcrafted things. In fact, they made some of the details for their wedding. They created rocket shaped table cards, Nick brewed his own special blend of beer for his wedding and Ken created a new cocktail for the ladies. I believe they made some special candy as well, but don’t quote me on that…

Rancho del Diablo Dormido was built by its owners several years ago and is named after a large natural monolithic structure that looks like a sleeping devil. As they say, “when the devil sleeps, the good in all is awakened…” A beautiful home during the week, this venue is a perfect choice for a smaller, more intimate guest list.

There was something very different shooting at this venue. It might’ve been the right combination of temperature, lighting, and location… But everybody was connected emotionally. As the sun set and thermometer loosened up, so did their close friends and family. The laughs and tears poured on.

When the dance floor opened up, there wasn’t a filled seat in Rancho De Diablo Dormido. The music reverberated off the surrounding hills and the darkness enhanced the mood. Normally nobody gets down on a Sunday wedding, but tonight was the exception. Even their grandparents were rockin their socks off!

Probably one of the most gorgeous weddings I’ve ever photographed filled with Beautiful colors and a wonderful, loving family. Congratulations to Josh and Lisa.

We started the day out at the epic Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes. Their hotel room had a bangin’ view of the coast. Lisa and her bridesmaids were getting ready for what was to be one of the most memorable days of her life.

When we arrived at  La Venta Inn My jaw dropped at the view and at how gorgeous the location was. The place was beautifully decorated with the roses.

The live band played into the reception. Setting a great mood and getting the guests going.
