Intimate Malibu Oceanview Wedding


, , , , ,

Malibu Wedding_Y&S_Vivian Lin Photo_277Yuki and Steve eloped back in 2016, but wanted to renew their vows and share the joy with their closest friends and family.  They renewed their vows overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  Yuki’s father flew all the way from Japan, and carried a photo of Yuki’s mother with him as he gave a moving toast.  Yuki and Steve even broke a barrel of sake to celebrate their marriage, and served shots to each and every guest.  We were starting to lose light when I asked Steve if there were any other group photos he wanted, when he spontaneously asked if we could get a photo with everyone.  Everyone?!  Ok, everyone!




A Fun Bicycle-Themed Wedding

Zinnia and York fell in love as she was training to become a cyclist and York took it upon himself to help her reach her goal.  It is such a pivotal memory along the road to their wedding that they made it the theme of their big day.  From illustrated bicycles on their cookies, to a cute glittery bicycle cake topper, to having Peddler’s Creamery serve ice cream to their guests, their love of an active life together really shone through.  Check out their joyous day!  I especially love when the bridesmaids challenged the guys to shaving each others’ legs.  As far as Chinese door games go, that was a really creative one!

Super special thanks to all the vendors who made Zinnia and York’s day awesome!
