I have to give a huge thank you to Jillian Rose for associate shooting this wedding for two of my friends Dev and Christie! They decided to have a mini “destination wedding” by renting a gorgeous private residence in the Pacific Palisades for the weekend and having their family stay there. The property is on 3 acres and has hidden gardens and trails, a picturesque lake and treehouse, and the most amazing trees right off of Sunset Blvd. You would NEVER know this property even exists from the road. It’s like you have been transported to the East Coast in a hidden paradise.
Dev and Christie had some awesome DIY elements to their wedding. My favorite being the origami bouquets and centerpieces for the tables…painstakingly made by hand for months by Dev’s family. They were stunning and I got to keep one that is now housed permanently in my living room:) Also, the catered Indian feast by their favorite local Indian restaurant was a huge hit and the photo booth where each guest got a cute origami potted plant to take home that held their photo strip for them. Super cute!
I also have to thank Jason Stagliano for being the unofficial “day-of” coordinator and helping out Jillian so much (and providing the classical guitarist during dinner!) What an amazing gift. Thank you for all of your help.
Christie and Dev, I wish you a long happy life together and I hope there will be many more happy memories with friends and family to come!
