Casa Del Mar Wedding Photos, Santa Monica | 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. So read on for our beautiful day capturing Casa Del Mar wedding photos!

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!

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

Circular Wedding Ceremony

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.

Right outside of Casa del Mar is the Santa Monica Beach boardwalk, which is a perfect spot to get wedding photos.

Casa del Mar Wedding Reception

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.

This blog entry shows us doing Casa del Mar wedding photography in Santa Monica Beach. They had a beautiful circular wedding ceremony, where all the chairs pointed to the center of the room. This made for a very intimate and unique wedding ceremony. The Casa del Mar has to be one of our favorite wedding venues. It’s classic, it’s historic, it’s iconic, it’s the Casa del Mar!

For more examples of our wedding work, make sure to look around our blog. We have more weddings shot at Casa del Mar, along with many other Los Angeles weddings. If you are interested in booking us for your wedding day, make sure to look at our wedding photography prices (for Los Angeles) that we keep online, current, and transparent.
