Hotel Bel Air_VivianLinPHOTO

Weddings reflect the personalities of the couple getting married, and Marcus and Sally’s big day resonated with charm, intimacy, and class.  We loved capturing the sheer joy Marcus and Sally exuded whenever they were near each other, his eyes crinkling with glee and her eyes open and expressive with love.

When a hotelier and an executive chef get married, you know you’re in for a day where every detail lives up to the highest of standards.  Marcus and Sally chose the enchanting  Hotel Bel Air for their first look.  Not only do the grounds remind me of a secret garden, but it’s all the more endearing since this is where they first met.  They treated their guests to a stunning ocean view ceremony.  Afterwards, dear friends and family enjoyed a lounge style reception and were offered a sumptuous feast that included hand made German sausages by the acclaimed Chef Bernhard Mairinger (in honor of Marcus’s native homeland), an avant-garde cake made by Sally’s award winning mentor, Donald Wressell, just to name a few of the culinary delights.

Congratulations to Sally and Marcus!  Your love is inspiring!
