Portofino Hotel Wedding Photography Redondo Beach | Cynthia & Milton

I love Cynthia and Milton’s wedding colors:  a subtle peachy-orange with a pop of purple accents. All of the details that Cynthia & Milton had so carefully planned had fallen into place perfectly. And with the help of their awesome coordinator, Colleen (of Fairy Godmother), their fairy tale wedding came true at the Portofino Hotel & Marina.  It was already a perfect and beautiful wedding, but to top it off,  Milton added more romance to the atmosphere when he surprised Cynthia by serenading “Angel” to her!!  Everyone was in awe couldn’t be more happier for the newly weds!!  Check out their awesome short video to share their joy and at the same time check out Milton’s talent singing skills.  =D So read on to see that and our Portofino Hotel wedding photography!

Wedding Preparation at the Portofino Hotel

Cynthia and Milton had their wedding preparation at the same hotel as their wedding, the Portofino Hotel.

Milton had his personal barber come and give his boys a shave and a haircut.

Cynthia and Cynthia decided to keep it traditional and not do a first look.  We had some time before the ceremony and I was happy to squeeze in some photos of them alone at the gorgeous Portofino Hotel

Portofino Hotel Wedding Ceremony

The wedding ceremony was held right outside the hotel and next to the marina. The sky was overcast, but that didn’t cast any gloom on our happy couple. One thing to note is that overcast and cloudy may seem gloomy, but is awesome for soft light on a wedding day.

For more of our recent work, you can check out our Instagram. For example, here is a Milky Way wedding photo we got at a wedding a little more south of Redondo Beach in Palos Verdes. BTW it’s really hard to get any stars with the light pollution of Los Angeles in the background:
