Ramona and James’ wedding in Santa Monica, CA was nothing short of spectacular! Shutters on the Beach and Casa Del Mar are two beautiful, but very different landmark hotels only about 50′ from one another. This wedding took place at both properties. The bride and groom got ready at the laid back “beachy” Shutters where the ceremony also took place, and the evening reception was in the more formal Casa del Mar ballroom. A beautiful combination! For the “Day After” shoot we drove up the coast to Leo Carrillo beach, with it’s rugged coastline. And, yes, the wave you see in the next to last photo was planned and 100% real (no Photoshop)! I still can’t believe how Ramona and James were able to hold it together and not even flinch… Here are some of our favorite images from this awesome wedding.
