Casa Del Mar, Santa Monica Wedding Photography | Maura & Nate

We recently had the honor of photographing another photographer’s wedding at one of our very favorite venues… the stunning Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica.

I remember meeting Maura and Nathan at their home in Marina Del Rey and instantly clicking with them in that we had many things in common.  The major common denominator being photography!  Maura has been photographing for a while and specializes in fashion, portraits and editorial work.  It’s quite flattering when she decided to book with us.

Everything about this wedding is beautiful and embraced in a cozy intimate kind of love.  The details were amazing, the flowers were spectacular, and the venue… so gorgeous!!   A HUGE thank you to Allyson Levine and the entire team at BoB Gail Special Events for making this day exceptional!!   Everything came together beautifully and flawlessly!

Maura is stunningly beautiful!! I love how her blue eyes “popped” with the natural beauty look.

Our groom, Nate is a handsome man as well.  No wonder their two kids, Frankie and Charley are so good looking!!  =)

In all my years of being a wedding photographer, I hardly see a ceremony that is set up in a circular layout.  I love it!!  This arrangement provides a warm embrace of closeness and love as friends and family witness Maura and Nate’s union.

And finally the beautiful Bride’s appearance!!

For the first time… Mr. and Mrs.  Jones!  Congratulations to the newly weds!



I absolutely love how Santa Monica Pier glows in the background!!

While we were taking the Bride and Groom portrait session, the wonderful staff at Casa Del Mar quickly transformed the Colonnade Ballroom (where the wedding ceremony was held) into a beautiful reception hall!!  The transformation was amazing!!  Once again, thank you Allyson Levine for all your hard work.
