Nothing beats the golden Southern California sunshine for a winter wedding. Clay & Addie travelled from afar to say "I do" in Malibu at the breathtaking Pepperdine University campus. It was not only a STUNNING wedding, but the people made it even more beautiful! The celebration of their marriage was filled with so much joy, the warmest of smiles, and the most contagious of laughter. Knowing how meaningful the chapel is to this couple made documenting its beauty so wonderful, and truly awesome. I love what the bride, Addie, had to say about choosing the Stauffer Chapel at Pepperdine for their wedding ceremony:
I have a serious crush on the sparkly bridesmaids dresses and I love how Addie incorporated the gold sequins into her own bouquet. Keep an eye out for her stunner of an engagement ring...her groom, being an engineer, designed it himself! That would make any gal swoon and feel like a princess! Above all the pretty details, I would say my favorite "wedding accessory" of them all is the smile that Addie wore all. day. long. She was adorably giddy, from watching her transformation from girl to bride, to dancing the night away with her besties. This wedding day has a special place in my heart for sure. Thank you both so much for giving me the honor of documenting your wedding day!
Congratulations, newlyweds! I am so thrilled to share some of my favorite photographs with you all!
