Marisa & Tyler at The Victorian

They say you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep. If that is true, then Marisa and Tyler’s family and friends speak volumes about them. The fact that Marisa’s sister-in-law to-be spent months designing and sewing every stitch of her gorgeous wedding gown is impressive enough, but add to that, Tyler’s childhood friend decorating a wedding cake elaborately festooned with charming details like a sugar replica of Annie their beloved Shitzou and a sweet little tree stump topper carved with their names, and you have a couple that clearly instills deep loyalty and devotion in those who know them.
This shouldn’t have been a surprise to me however. When Larry and I first met Marisa and Tyler for their engagement session a few months ago, they were so open and genuine that we felt as if we had been friends forever. I know this sentiment is one which is bandied about a lot on blogs like ours, but I truly do mean it. These two radiate so much warmth and love, not just to each other but to anyone lucky enough to come in contact with them.
Their lovely wedding took place at the The Victorian in Santa Monica. The folks at Holly Flora (which by the way, is quickly becoming my favorite floral studio of all time) really out-did themselves. The tables were strewn with geodes, moss, antlers and minerals. The crocheted table cloths provided the perfect nubby texture underneath. Marisa’s bouquet was an explosion of beautiful color and fragrance. I could have spent the entire day just photographing the flowers. By the way, did you notice Marisa’s very cute and comfy Tom’s shoes? She said she was inspired by a recent blog post of ours encouraging brides to choose comfortable footwear for their wedding day. How typical of her to wear shoes that are not only adorable but serve a good cause too.
Marisa and Tyler,  we wish you all the best in your new life together. We know you will continue to broaden your circle of friends and fans. You can count us in as your newest members.
