I love Malibu so much! Whether it's date night with my love or I'm photographing a proposal or a wedding, I get so excited when it's in Malibu. The California coast has my entire heart and I love the versatility of it all. This beautiful Calamigos Ranch Wedding is a perfect example of a Malibu Wedding without the ocean, but instead the beautiful greenery it offers. Calamigos Ranch is a special wedding venue for that reason. It has many options for your ceremony and reception spaces. I second shot this beautiful day for Carmen Lopez.
CALAMIGOS RANCH WEDDING
In this particular Calamigos day, the wedding ceremony took place underneath the venue's iconic and beautiful oak tree. It's the one that has string lights dripping down. The Paivilions at North Point is the name of the space, this is also where the ferris wheel is located. The florals for the day lined the aisle. They were so colorful! The bride and groom (AND THE GROOMSMEN) had beautiful styles of henna on their hands. The bride's dress was gorgeous and flowy, it was just so fun to photograph. It was truly a perfect day.
After the sweet and emotional first look, we took the couple to the grape leaves (vineyard?) section of the venue for some bridal portraits. It was a unique and special way to photograph bridal portraits. They turned out beautiful. After the ceremony and cocktail hour, a baraat-like event happened. A traditional Indian event where both families come together and completely hype each other and the bride and groom happened and lead the way to the reception. It was freakin fantastic and so much fun!
The reception took place indoors and it was simply magical. Colorful floral designs filled the tables. The sweetheart table was decked out and so was the cake. It all was so lovely.
