A Romantic Dream

To shoot a photographer's wedding is exciting, to shoot a photographer's wedding whose work you admire - nerve wracking! :) Needless to say, I was extremely honored to photograph Carrie & Mike's wedding. It was beautiful! Carrie was absolutely stunning and Mike was quite the looker himself!

Enveloped in the evening fog, Rancho Sol Del Pacifico in Malibu was the perfect setting... and to quote one guest, "it was like walking into a dream..." and it indeed was!

It was such a special day. Mike's niece, Sheila, sang during the ceremony and American Idol's Melinda Dolittle surprised the guests during reception & set the tone for the couple's very romantic first dance.

I've gotten to know their family and some friends... To be in the presence of such wonderful people is one of the many reasons I love my job. Hats off to Pauline, Charley and the rest of their team from Good Gracious! for a more than spectacular job!

Marianne you are an amazing photographer!! We were so lucky to have you at my daughters wedding and now at my brothers. Like I told you before, you are always there but never seen. The pictures of Michael and Carrie are breathtaking.

I want to tell you how beautiful the pictures are and I am so happy my son chose you to take his wedding photos. They really are very special. Thank you so much from both Zina and Sam, the proud parents.
