Jill and Haven

Jill and Haven are definitely the artiest couple I have shot to date and their wedding reflected their talented musical background. The day started off at the Biltmore Hotel where the guys and girls got ready in separate rooms. My first stop was to the girls room where hair, makeup and having too much fun was in full bloom. I arrived at about the same time as Isabel who was the videographer and who I had a great time working with. Make up was done beautifully by Kelly Henson and hair was styled by Wendy Torrez. I was definitely having too much fun photographing the girls but I had to make my way to the guys room to check them out. I arrived with the Dominoes delivery guy and started shooting them while they had their pre-game meal. They slowly got ready, goofing off the whole time, as it always seems guys tend to do. Then I ran back up to the girls room for the finishing touches and then we were off to the races. A quick reveal and then some more photography with Jill and Haven and then it was off to Cicada where the ceremony and reception were to take place. Cicada is a gorgeous restaurant in downtown Los Angeles. Its moody, elegant, it has a stage where the ceremony took place (perfect for performers like Jill and Haven), just really nice. It was all coordinated perfectly by Paola Spagnoletti who put together a fabulous event. The ceremony was beautiful, Jill and Haven looked like the rockstars they are. Everyone partied hard and had a great time until they closed the place down. It always seems like the weddings where I have the best time go by the quickest. I know Jill and Haven didn't want it to end but hopefully these pictures will bring back some smiles...
