Mountaintop Vineyard Wedding
Ashley and Laurence were married at the top of the Malibu mountains at Chateau Le Dome on Saddlerock Ranch.
The morning of the wedding Ashley got ready surrounded by her bridesmaids and family at the Dome while Laurence and his guys hung at one of suites at the Four Seasons in Westlake Village. Ashley and Laurence chose to see each other before their ceremony in a private romantic first look. We always feel so lucky to be able to capture this moment when the bride and groom see each other for the first time on the day they’ve been planning for so long.
The Dome is a dream location to have a ceremony, located out on the very peak of the hill. But one of the most amazing parts is the entire wedding day starts and finishes all on the same mountaintop. The sun setting over the mountains is completely breathtaking.
We took Ashley and Laurence out into the vineyards for their sunset portrait session. And while this always seems to be our favorite part because we get to spend the most relaxed and honest moments of the day with the bride and groom, Laurence proved us wrong when he pulled out a guitar and sang a surprise song to Ashley in front of everyone during the reception. That, for sure, was our favorite.
Congrats, Ashley and Laurence! You two are insanely easy to photograph.
