Malibu Adamson House Wedding Photographers | Randi + Matt

We expected this to be an amazing day, but Randi & Matt exceeded those expectations.  From their engagement session, we knew their love was special, but there is just an extra level of thought that went into their entire day.  Combine that with the level of detail these two achieved and it was a magical day all around.

From pashminas for anyone whole might feel a chill in the cool Malibu spring evening to a quick stop at the Rosenthal Winery to celebrate one last time with all her bridesmaids before heading off to the venue, one could tell Randi has been planning this day.

Beginning at the Shore Hotel  in Santa Monica, all the girls gathered and prepped for the big day ahead.  With a sushi platter from Sugarfish, and hair and makeup by Vanessa Gapezzani and Melissa Abad respectively everything was starting off beautifully.

Once everyone was ready to head off to the venue, we all made a pit stop at the Rosenthal Winery on PCH.  Live music was playing, the sun was shining, and people were just relaxing and taking it all in.  This was the ideal spot to take a moment and recharge before arriving at the Adamson House.

When Matt was all set, we waited as Randi made her way to their rendezvous.  We set up a special moment where Matt could see his bride for the first time and officially get things started.  After some quick photos around the gorgeous grounds, we all prepared for the ceremony to begin.

The Adamson House has an amazing location for a sunset wedding ceremony.  On a beautiful lush green lawn, under a majestic old tree this site and the lighting was absolutely magical.  Made even better by a unique ceremony that featured personal vows and even a surprise song by Randi.

Once the knot was tied, it was time to party.  Everyone headed back the rear of the property overlooking the Malibu beach. With amazing food, great live music, and some of the best people, this was all the elements you need for a fantastic evening.

As we heard speeches about how these two families have come together so perfectly and how special a relationship Randi and Matt have, the evening slowly began to wind down.  We had an amazing day and an even better evening capturing these two, the love they share, and the marriage they are creating.
