Samantha got ready in the Biltmore’s bridal suite. Her hair stylists. Joseph Michael and Eddie Alvarez did such an amazing job on her beautiful sweeping curls. Her makeup artist Rachel Bellow really did an amazing job on all the girls. One of our favorite moments was Sam’s first look with her father Marty. The emotion that followed with the family was so much fun to capture.
We met Sam and (wait for it)….Michael Anthony at a bridal show back in 2018. Samantha was immediately attracted to our cinematic style of photography, and we knew that her story would be a good one when she described the vision for her wedding to us. Samantha’s bridesmaids all wore completely different gowns. both in style plus color and the result was a beautiful display of color between the girls. Samantha found her gown at the world famous Kleinfeld Bridal in Manhattan. She searched high and low for her stunning veil, which was lined with silver glitter that stuck to everyone it came in contact with, like pixie dust. The veil was a constant source of inspiration for our Signature Artist Michael Anthony (the photographer not her husband) as he documented this event.
The Crystal Ballroom Reception
The couple had their reception inside the beautiful crystal ballroom. This is one of the largest and most beautiful wedding ballrooms in Downtown Los Angeles. We loved the grand entrance, where the whole wedding party appeared at different balconies on the second floor.
But let’s talk about the decor for a second. We cannot say enough good things about Events Boutique, Rita did an incredible job coordinating the wedding and SB Florist beautifully decorated the reception room. And I don’t want to forget about DJ Tetris from Vox DJ’s who hosted a beautiful event with gorgeous lighting. The whole team really made our job easy.
Samantha and Mike were so amazing to work with. They did everything they could to make our job easy and to help us capture their beautiful event. We look forward to working with them in the future and wish them the best of luck and a happy honeymoon! Enjoy their photos!
