cari + chris | wedding | hotel bel-air | los angeles

cari and chris‘ wedding day was ever so special. cari commissioned los angeles designer, vivian chan, to create and customized her beautiful wedding dress. cari and chris celebrated their wedding at the gorgeous hotel bel-air. they also opted to have an unplugged wedding and it was one of the best wedding ceremony’s that i have had the honor to capture as all their family and friends were engaged and present for the vows and ceremony. cari and chris have close ties to hawaii as cari is from hawaii and they had a lovely hawaiian band, kua’ana, serenade guests before the ceremony and during the reception. wedding guests got to sip on champagne before & after the ceremony and delicious hors d’oeuvres were passed around during cocktail hour. the reception was super fun with their friends, dj icy ice & dj gno on the turntables for dancing. here are some of my favorites from cari & chris’ special day!
