This morning I am happy to share with you all a sweet little shoot that we created with Becca Rillo Photography! It has been featured on several blogs over the past year (including Trendy Bride, Paper Moon Weddings, The Frosted Petticoat, and Urban Style). At the first meeting I have with each of our couples, I always ask them what they like to do together. I can’t tell you how many times the couple says, “we love to go to brunch.” From reflecting on this single phenomenon, the idea emerged to put together a wedding for a couple that just loves the morning, getting up to exercise, and all that the sun rising and the most important meal of the day have to offer!
For this wedding, the guests were invited to partake in a short hike up to the fabulous Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, where the couple would tie the knot with gorgeous views of downtown Los Angeles in the distance. Upon arrival, the guests were provided with shots of espresso to help them wake up and get ready for the sunrise ceremony, along with sunglasses and blankets to get them comfortable and ready to watch the show!
After the ceremony, festivities commenced with one of my most loved set-ups of the entire year – a cereal bar with everyone’s childhood faves to bring out their kid at heart! We also created a brunch spread with super cute signs from both Prim & Pixie and Painted Joy, styled to perfection by the dream combo of Becca, Judy (from Enchanted Gardens) and yours truly.
One of my personal favorite details of this shoot was the waffle cake Becca created for the couple. Every time I look at these photos, I am overcome with the pressing desire to bust out the old waffle maker and indulge! There are so many fun and beautiful things you can do at a morning wedding, and today I hope you consider getting up early and making a day out of your celebration!
