I wanted to give a HUGE thanks to Jillian Rose for Associate shooting this gorgeous, heartfelt same-sex destination wedding for Amy and Angela who live in Texas. Amy and Angela decided to get married in the one-and-only glass chapel, Wayfarers Chapel perched high on the cliffs of Rancho Palos Verdes, California overlooking Catalina Island. They had an intimate ceremony for just friends and immediate family and then went to the Terranea cove for some stunning portraits overlooking the water before heading out to their luncheon reception.
The entire theme to their wedding was “LOVE” and was written all over their programs, save the dates, place cards and even their guest sign in board. They had love quotes written on their decor and some of my favorite touches were their parents and family member’s portraits turned into brooches and fastened to the bouquet. It was such a sweet little detail. Another thing that I loved was their Ampersand wooden sign they held up during their cove portraits. What I have learned over the years is that not only does that sign mean “and”, but in writing the symbol of the ampersand means “Partners” when you link two names together and that is EXACTLY what Amy and Angela are and have been for a long time. It’s just now legally “official”:) It is one of the reasons I LOVE living in California! I am so honored you two chose my beautiful state and Beautiful Day Photography to be a part of such an important day in your lives! Congratulations to you both!
