Gorgeous wedding in California-- photographed by Michael Andrews Photography!
This is what the bride had to say about her wedding: "We had an absolutely incredible wedding at Malibou Lake Mountain Club! Our guests are still raving about it more than two years later... they loved the food, the decor and the romantic, rustic setting. Think: old Hollywood glamor in a romantic lakeside lodge. Twinkle lights in the trees, over-sized chandeliers and the gorgeous Malibu Canyon chaparral reflected in the lake.
Having Michael shoot our wedding was the best--and I mean THE BEST--experience. Of the many vendors that helped make our day so special, he was the only one who took time to get to know us and our families. Most important, Michael really "got" our vision and artfully captured some incredible moments.
A few of my faves: A quiet moment with just the two of us after the excitement of the ceremony, the happy tears (oh, there were many!) of my sister when she toasted our marriage, and the looks of pride on our parents' faces.
He managed to photograph all of the tiny details that have since slipped from memory, such as the hand-stamped decorations, the "I Do" message on the bottom of my shoes, and the birch wood poles supporting our chuppah.
On a personal note, Michael was an incredible source of calm and support during a hectic time. He's great to work with and I'd highly recommend him to any Malibu bride and groom!
I know you are enjoying the weddings from around the world as much as I am. What I have found is they all have beautiful things to share and good ideas no matter where they are from. I also love how the photographers are so willing to share with us and will do what it takes to get me the pictures and story- even if they don't speak english. They are some of the world best photographers and I can see why! This wedding is from Santiago de Chile! This is what Andres sent me...
The wedding of Maurice and Maurine was last year, in September, was one of the oldest vineyards of Santiago called Santa Rita, their wines are excellent and very traditional. The story tell that the owner of the vineyard, built a church for each of his daughters, and this church is in the vineyard, was built early in the century and is a wonderful place. The wedding was amazing, with Paulo Russo one of the best person in Chile in charge of the banquet and all the decoration, everything turned out amazing and the couple were very very happy.
