What a venue and even a better couple. Ka'Mesha had been following us on Instagram for sometime before finally booking us for her wedding. These two are really surrounded by great friends and family.
When we arrived things were still getting set up. We were there an hour early so we got starting flying the drone and I got on to taking some photos early, just in case. What a beautiful topper to their backdrop.
It was all coming along nicely.
Not a bad look for your wedding day. Certainly a fantastic new out the main windows of the Malibu West Beach Club.
Ka'Mesha was finally ready for us. Right on time for when were were supposed to start. We wasted no time getting her dress hung up and getting the behind the scenes with the ladies. Looked like organized chaos to us, but they were moving along.
So I continued on waiting for everyone to get dressed and hair and make up completed. Check out those shoes. I have seen some bling in my time, but never presented in such a pretty bow like this... and the ring!
So at this point we are really having to rush and get the bride dressed. Guests have shown up early and we needed more time to get the final touches done and we were all looking for Eric who was on his way.
There he was with their coordinator trying to figure out how to tie a bowtie. Yep, the infamous bowtie. Why do I say it like that? Well, in the 20 years I have been doing this, that is the one thing I have not learned to do and it is not easy. Sure watch a youtube video. They did. Watch it again. They did. We asked guests. Nope. I asked bartenders. Nope. I even asked members of the club who were coming in from skiing. Well let's just say they didn't even know what a bowtie was so....
Finally, we got the two together for their first look. Now every wedding has a problem. Never seen one that doesn't. Sometimes it rains and on others it rains problems. We were already supposed to be starting the ceremony as this image was captured and still the guests waiting outside patiently.
Bam! There it was. The moment we rushed towards for nearly an hour was almost done.
And there you go, the kiss sealed it. Now hurry and get back hidden so we can let the guests in fast and get started.
Here are the details for the day!
