Stephen + Taryn || Palos Verdes, CA ||

Hands down, this was one of our favorite couples this year! Taryn is a very gifted artist//painter and hails from South Africa. Stephen is from my hometown of Virginia Beach and is now a rescue diver for the US Coast Guard, stationed in LAX. The couple were married at the Palos Verdes Lighthouse on USCG property overlooking the cliffs of Southern California. One of the most memorable moments of the day was when steve's buddies from the Coast Guard did a surprise helicopter flyby, and then hovered over the couple while they posed for photos!

I loved everything about this wedding, from its location to originality. Each detail displayed in this film{bridesmaids dresses, gifts, boutonnieres/head pieces, invitations, and centerpieces} was hand made by this talented bride. Taryn actually wore the same floral head piece her grandmother wore some 40 years ago! I was very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing couple's wedding!
