Spanish Hills Wedding : Juli + Steve

Juli + Steve Wedding

The Jewish wedding ceremony dates back thousands of years.  The modern day Jewish wedding still remains a beautiful ceremony, rich with tradition and deep religious meaning. I was honored to document these amazing rituals unfold as Juli and Steve became one.

Steve and Juli are true soulmates.  From the moment I met them I could see the love they share for each other.  Juli is a beautiful soul with a passion for life and an infectious smile.  Steve is the perfect balance for Juli’s energy.  His even-keeled composure is the yin to her yang.

They chose the beautiful Spanish Hills Country Club for their venue. Wedding photography is so much fun when the venue is as beautiful as this one. It was an amazing day and a great ceremony with wonderful people.

Steve was a natural in front of the camera.  I think he might have enjoyed taking his portraits more than Juli did.  I was lucky to have a groom so comfortable in front of the camera.

I love shooting first looks with the bride and groom.  It goes against the tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding, but you get such true emotion, just as Juli and Steve were displaying the moment they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.  Magic.

The bride was beautiful as she made her way down the steps to her waiting groom.

After the ceremony was finished, Juli and Steve stole a few brief minutes to have an intimate moment alone.  I was able to capture that beautiful moment as they were able to take it all in.

The reception details were beautiful. The cake was gorgeous and Spanish Hills did an amazing job with the decor. I can honestly say that Juli and Steve’s first dance was one of my favorites.

Juli was radiant on her special day, waiting for her new husband to sweep her away.

They were off to live their new life together… happily ever after.

Many thanks to the wonderful team who helped make this day possible…
