Melanie and Randy’s wedding was so much fun, I can’t believe how quickly they put it all together!

Wedding at The Pierpont Inn Ventura

Melanie and Randy got married in May at the lovely Pierpont Inn, which is a nice hotel in Ventura. They had their ceremony in the back garden, which overlooked the ocean. They chose Pierpont Inn, because it has so many options and they just fell in love with it. It was an all white wedding, which looked so unique. I love shooting weddings at The Pierpont Inn, because the surroundings are relaxed and the grounds are so gorgeous. There are so many areas for photos, you can have such different looks and the beach right across the street.

Getting ready

Melanie got ready in one of the cottages with her mom, and the atmosphere was perfect. The bride and groom then met for their first look and some couples portraits before going to the ceremony. Randy got ready in his own cottage.

The ceremony

The wedding itself was intimate setting on the venue grounds, with ivy vines framing their ceremony. During the ceremony they read their own vows. It was such a personal service. Looking around at all their closest friends and family all wearing white or beige was so unique!

After the ceremony

The reception was at the same venue and they had their group photos and some more of the two of them taken before their grand entrance. They decorated the venue with all white flowers with candles and hints of gold, because Melanie loved the clean and simple look of an all white wedding. I’ve never seen this style done before and absolutely loved how it all came out. The first dance was immediately following their grand entrance, and it was a romantic slow dance. Melanie and her father had their father daughter dance right afterwards, and it was such an emotional moment. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

The nicest part of the day was being able to capture them together as husband and wife. I always love that part of the day, seeing the little moments no one else gets to see.

The couple

Melanie wore this gorgeous gown with an incredibly long and intricate train, and Randy wore a stylish tan suit and they both looked so incredible. Melanie’s dress was from Wang’s Bridal and Randy’s suit was from Jos A Banks.

Melanie and Randy met online and have been together for about 4 years. They got in touch with me barely a month before their wedding date! They said they wanted a photographer that could capture them and their personalities, and I thought it was awesome that they knew what they wanted, and loved my style.

Melanie and Randy’s wedding had such a fun atmosphere and was everything I love about weddings. I loved photographing their wedding at the Pierpont Inn Ventura! Here’s their awesome wedding day!
