Well, this post is a little behind as we also traveled back East to Pennsylvania in June to shoot a wedding.  The last two weeks we have been playing some catch up, but are so excited to share with you photos from Martoinne and Rhea’s wedding that took place on June 5, 2011 at the Sportmen’s Lodge in Studio City, CA.  We had a wonderful couple and a fabulous venue, so the photo opportunities were great.  The Sportsmen’s Lodge has a beautiful garden ceremony location and this is where the two said their I-do’s.  When we met Marty and Rhea at our initial consult we instantly clicked with them and it made for a great capture on their day.  Rhea really liked the fact that we were a married photography couple and I think that shines through here.

The two met at church where two of Martoinne’s cousins introduced them.  After being a couple for 2 years, he proposed to Rhea at the Manhattan Beach Pier and she said Yes!!!!  These two are a young couple that knew they wanted to be together forever!  We could totally see this love as I teared up on a few occasions during their ceremony.  It all started with Marty singing to Rhea as she walked down the aisle, such a priceless moment.  He also sang part of his vows to her.  How Romantic?????

Cheers+Love, J+D
