Ooh La Love Gets Married {Caroline + Ari}

Last weekend my husband Ari and I celebrated our one-year anniversary, and I am so amazed at how quickly twelve months has flown by! This last year has been a whirlwind of travel, quality time spent with family and good friends, and professional milestones as we have grown Ooh La Love. With such a busy year, I haven’t found the time to frame any images from our wedding, or even share the full album with our family. Sorry guys! This is actually a bad habit of mine, and I think I have officially been banned in my friend group from ever using my camera, for fear that the photo will never be seen again. Luckily my sweet husband knows this about me, and as a gift had some of my favorite images framed, to honor the tradition of a paper gift for the first year of marriage. Both our photographer Jen Simon and videographer ElmanAdam did such a wonderful job of capturing the love and emotion of our wedding day, and I am so excited to finally share! Hope you Enjoy!

Caroline

   

Ari and I were so blessed to have family and friends fly in from all over the world for our big day. Guests came from near and far, traveling locally from Orange County (where I grew up), the east coast, all the way to Iceland (where he is from),  so we wanted to make sure that they really enjoyed themselves. We both felt that our wedding should not just be a celebration of our love for each other, but also the joining of our friends and family.

      

My family pitched in with all our DIY projects, working on everything from creating the escort card holders from oversized vintage frames, to hand stamping handkerchiefs for the ceremony, and much more.

When it came to the design I had about a million ideas, and Jesenia helped me so much in organizing my thoughts to focus in on a natural and romantic vibe, with lots of greenery, candlelight and pops of bordeaux.

To keep our guests happy and comfortable we paid extra attention to the small details, and live music kept everyone on the dance floor all night.

Engaged {Lina and Jason}

We are so looking forward to celebrating Lina and Jason’s Wedding this weekend at the beautiful Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach. This two lovebirds have lived in Washington for past years and have decided to have their wedding here, in their home state of California.

Happy Birthday Abuela!

For years my Mom has been asking my sisters and I to do a family photo shoot with my Grandma. This year we surprised her with a photo shoot at Placerita Canyon with the amazing and talented Lisa of L Marie Photography. I wanted the shoot to be very special for my Grandma so I made sure to incorporate things she loves like the color coral, pineapple juice and flowers. We are so grateful to have these beautiful pictures.  It was such a wonderful experience working with Lisa and Cyrus.  They were so patient and loving towards us, it made the shoot go so smoothly.  I also have to give a special thanks to my partner in crime, Caroline for helping style that day! And last but not least the hubbs for helping with all the heavy lifting.

As our family celebrates my Grandma’s 86th birthday today, I would like to share these pictures with you! I would encourage you to get some professional pictures done with your family, especially if your lucky enough to still have your grandparents around. It’s a priceless gift having these pictures!
