When Sabine first sent me a message that her and her fiance were planning a wedding surrounded by historic Victorian mansions I couldn’t wait.
The Heritage Square Museum is a collection of historic homes saved from downtown and around Los Angeles. A museum was created to preserve the houses and are used regularly for filming locations. This is easily one of the most unique Wedding venues in Los Angeles and I was so happy to capture these two on their big day.
Sabine + Ben are quite the pair. Two adventurous and truly fun people who bring out the best in each other. We first met for their sunrise engagement photo session at Venice Beach + Canals.
Their Wedding was a particularly beautiful day. Sabine’s style was elegant with all the right touches of glam. Her bridesmaids added pops of shimmer + sparkle next to her in a mix of blush, deep reds + golds. The girls helped her get ready before she did an emotional first look with her dad. We headed over to St. Nicholas.
The couple had a traditional Greek orthodox ceremony. These moments were all so beautiful to capture, even though I had to stay a little far away from the stage. I found a tiny passageway with a big mural of priests that made for a quiet moment with the bride and groom and one of my favorite portraits of the day.
The big outdoor reception followed at the Historic Heritage Square Museum just off of the 110 freeway. We did a round of bridal portraits at the different historical homes. We couldn’t enter the buildings but could roam freely around the porches. All the groomsmen picked Sabine up which made for a cute moment.
They had an In and Out Truck for dinner before speeches. The dance floor was right in front of the famous red caboose, strung with market lights. It all felt a lot like magic.
It was a delight to capture this day, here are a few of my favorites.
