What can we say about this gorgeous Biltmore hotel wedding? Only that we’re so glad we whisked ourselves away to sunny Los Angeles to do it! We’ve had so much fun with these two; snapping their vintage-style engagement photos at Union Station in Los Angeles, and following them all the way to their stunning ceremony at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, and an elegant reception at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.

And you’re in for a total treat, because this wedding was beyond fabulous. The bride’s Vera Wang dress is absolutely to die for, as is her impeccable styling, and we were lucky enough to steal away Stephanie and John for a lot of intimate portraits, which allowed them to relax and take in the excitement of the day.

Jimmy Choo shoes and a Vera Wang dress! It’s a match made in designer heaven!

While Stephanie gets pampered, John plugs in to pass the time. I wonder what his “wedding day” playlist is? elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-19 You couldn’t paint a more classic bride and groom portrait! elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-6 We couldn’t resist some dreamy portraits before the dress was even fully buttoned – Stephanie was so sweet and calm on her wedding day! elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-7 Be sure to get ready with your girls – you might need them on button and zipper duty! elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-8 Our favorite shots are the “first look” photos! There’s nothing sweeter than when the groom sees his future bride for the first time.elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-9 elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-10 Aren’t Stephanie and John completely adorable? We can’t keep from smiling! elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-11 Tender moments like these are our favorite part of the day. elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-12 Be sure to take some time to step away from your guests, your family, and even your wedding party to take some portraits alone before your “i do’s”; it gives you a few moments to connect as a couple on this whirlwind of a day. elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-13 elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-14 There were so many fabulous places to take photos at the Biltmore! These gilded gates were a fun find. elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-15 elegant-formal-ballroom-wedding-16 The bridal party!
