A Santa Monica Beach Wedding | Jonathan Club {Erin & Bobby}

Posted by on Nov 25, 2010 in . Weddings . | No Comments

Erin & Bobby were very happily married on the beach at their Santa Monica athletic club, The Jonathan Club. Woohooo! A huge congrats to them.

Everything about this wedding was gorgeous. Erin’s dress was the most fun & unique of 2010 for me to photograph. Her dress is a nice reflection on who she is on the inside and out. Erin is genuine, sweet and FUN…. and, so is Bobby. When they look at each other, I really can see that glimmer of adoring love in their eyes (I know, I am sounding soppy and cheesy, but it’s true and why hold back!). It’s truly admirable!  My favorite part of the day was stealing them away right after the ceremony for the sweet light on the beach. They both are marathon runners, and so it was their wish to run carefree, hand-in-hand, on the beach on their wedding day. It was perfect!

The party was a blast.  They didn’t do conventional dinner tables with assigned seating. Instead they arranged the reception in a swanky, beach cocktail-lounge style with tall bar style tables & white couches and love seats on the beach surrounded by romantic candles. It was cool and everyone seemed to really enjoy it.  And, their amazing DJ’s always kept the dance floor bumping.

I could continue writing more and more about what an amazing wedding this was to shoot, but I’ll spare this white space & start adding my favorite photos from their wedding. Beware: there are 90 below! Wowsers.

Also, a special thanks to my assistant & 2nd shooter, Kara Snider, and to all of the fabulous vendors (listed below) who helped make Erin & Bobby’s wedding a dream come true for them!
