It’s hard to know where to start with Liz and Jean. These two have become amazing friends to both Jayse and I through several fun photo-shoots and mini-adventures together over the past few years. You may remember them from their L.A. County Fair & Griffith Park engagement session that was featured on SMP earlier this year.
As you can probably tell from the photos, Liz and Jean are one of those couples you always feel happy just being around. I think part of it is that it’s easy to tell just how much they love each other, and how much they appreciate having good friends around.
And that’s how this wedding felt – a bunch of good friends and family gathering in sunny California for a stunning destination wedding on the romantic grounds of Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. The talented coordination trio, Scheme Events, was there to make sure every detail was in place and the entire day went flawless!
The morning started at The W Hotel in Hollywood, getting ready surrounded by close friends and loved ones.
I adored all the detail and love put into Liz and Jean’s wedding. The gorgeous floral was artfully created by the amazing team at Layers of Lovely, and custom letterpress invites were designed and made by Paper & Home.
For their first look, I brought Jean to a quiet private place between a long pathway of towering cypress trees. I think five years of loving Liz, and waiting for this day must have flooded Jean when he turned around to see his bride for the first time that day. His expression said it all.
The ceremony took place on the garden lawn, with a historic fountain and archway of soft peach and pink rose strands as the centerpiece.
The happy newlyweds – Mr. and Mrs. Sanchez! <3The desert table was to die for (and incredibly delicious too!) Designed by Liz with the main cake by Peridot Sweets and smaller cakes and deserts by Sweet & Saucy Shop.For their first dance as husband and wife Liz and Jean were serenaded by Frank Sinatra who sung “The Way You Look Tonight”.
A couple days after the wedding we met back up for an after-session and more photos in beautiful San Juan Capistrano:
L+J: Jayse and I love you guys!!! Congrats on finally tying the knot and becoming Mr & Mrs! You two are so perfect for each other. :-)
