We are so happy with these MountainGate Country Cub wedding Photos. What a gorgeous, romantic location! We had never shot here before so when Staci +Jeff booked us for their wedding here, we were so excited!!!
The day started off at the coolest round hotel this side of the 405… The Hotel Angeleno. This round hotel you can not miss off the infamous 405 freeway, it has really cool views of LA freeway, but on a clear day you can see the ocean.
From there we went to the venue and started the day with a first look. We really feel that first looks are SO vital when you are working with ( either a short timeline, working against sunset, or want to relieve the stress and just get the photos done so you can party later). I know people may think, but the reaction won’t be as good, however, look at Staci’s teardrop, it was just as emotional and when she came down the aisle, Jeff was still taken aback!
After the first look we took some detail shots of the amazing Farmers Market from Jeff’s business. This was one of the most UNIQUE things we have seen at a wedding. Candy bars, dessert bars, pie bars, and cigar bars but never a Farmers Market! It was a huge hit and they provided tote bags for their guests to shop with!
The ceremony was overlooking the Los Angeles Mountains and was beautiful! The simple decor was all it needed! The ring bearer stole the show with his safe for the ring! After the ceremony we went to take some sunset photos since we had a few extra minutes thanks to the first look earlier… so we got golf carts and took off. As you can see below.. Staci jumped in to drive and Jeff was not sure if that was a good idea!!! HAHA After the photos we went back and kicked off the reception. The crowd was full of energy and danced the night away!
We really enjoyed the unique nature of this wedding and the amazing photos we were able to take! Hope you enjoy them too!
