This Malibu wedding was one of my most memorable for a few reasons. I was referred to the outgoing Jen and James through my mentor, Percy, who was a guest at their wedding and Percy’s partner Ross was the officiant! Truly a family affair.
Jen and James were lucky enough to be one of the first weddings at the Saddlerock Ranch house—from the outside, it looks like a cabin but on the inside, you are surprised by the all-white interior with a surf lodge feel. This is probably one of my favorite venues to date.
Did I mention that James, the DIY king, hand made all of the escort cards (branded leather luggage tags) AND hand made suspenders for all of his groomsmen?!
However, in the middle of the HOT wedding (LA was going through a heat wave), I started noticing something like dirt on the tablecloths. Turns out, a huge wildfire had started a few hours prior from the Santa Ana winds and the ash started falling during the cocktail hour!!!
Like I said, very memorable. And yet one of my favorite weddings.
