Joy + Max's Wedding- Hollywood, CA

Joy and Max picked two stunning locations to celebrate their wedding. Their ceremony was at the Greystone Estates  and their reception was at the Andaz hotel. Beautiful grounds and beautiful views....but my favorite part was listening to the toasts. I met Joy and Max the day of their wedding (like a lot of my couples) and I love getting to know them more through the words of family and friends.

One of the best moments was finding out Joy's family is from Maui! I had no idea I was flying from home on Hawaii to shoot an LA wedding with Aloha spirit. Made me happy.

Such a generous, kind couple with an amazing sense of humor. Everyone was laughing and crying through the whole ceremony and I loved how welcoming Max was with me while I was photographing them getting ready. He had a million things on his mind and still made it a point to ask me questions and help me feel welcome. It was really sweet.

Yet again another couple I wish lived next door. Feeling so grateful for all of these amazing people I get to meet and connect with.
