Beth & Ben

We were thrilled to partner with Bash Please and Max Wanger to capture this unbelievable Malibu mountaintop wedding. Beth and Ben were so genuine and such a joy to work with. We’ll leave it at that and let the moments and visuals speak for themselves.

High up on a breathtaking Malibu hilltop is where you’ll find this affair. And as unbelievable as those views are, even more unbelievable is the beauty of this gilded wedding day. With details by Bash, Please that give bohemian a glamorous infusion and florals by Brown Paper Design that cover everything in a blanket of bold color, there’s not a single image by Max Wanger or Caravan you won’t want to pin.

Both born and raised in the south- her, Alabama; him- Georgia, Beth Murray and Ben Bricken met their freshman year attending the University of Georgia. They remained close friends throughout their four years of college. Upon graduation, Beth moved up the east coast, working on Capitol Hill and then moving on to New York City as a producer for NBC’s TODAY Show. An avid surfer, Ben went (much farther) west- working for Discovery Land Company’s Kuki’o development in Hawaii. He continued to pursue real estate- and chasing surf- ending up in Santa Monica at Douglas Emmett real estate firm. The two kept up through the years and reconnected in Los Angeles, while Beth was on a business trip for TODAY. “We went out for a drink to catch up on life since college and it was like a light switch turned on,” recalls Murray. “We ended up talking on the beach in front of his house until morning and the rest is history.” “We both just knew.” The two got engaged a few short months later- Ben proposed in Rosemary Beach, Florida while they were spending a weekend in the South with his family.

Words can’t describe how much we enjoyed capturing Hun & Austin’s day. They truly are two of the most caring and compassionate people. We loved getting to capture the traditional Chinese elements and their classic wedding.

“Our bride and groom came to us with one important goal in mind for their wedding: to create an unforgettable weekend with family and friends that was a showcase of their heritage and personalities. With a lively ranch outing following the rehearsal on Friday, their guests were shown just how playful and vivacious the bride and groom are while practicing riflery, shooting arrows, riding horses, and ziplining. 

Their wedding day started early Saturday morning with traditional Chinese elements, including Bridal Games and a formal Tea Ceremony. They wanted their wedding ceremony and reception to feel like an elegant 1920s-era garden party with shades of burgundy, forest green, ivory, and blush pink throughout. With their beautiful estate in Atherton and soaring redwood trees as a natural background to the ceremony, simple wooden benches adorned with sprigs of greenery lined the grass. A piano was brought outside for a friend to play one of their favorite songs during the ceremony, and the bride and groom selected Staraflur by Sigur Ros for a string quartet to play as their processional. After the ceremony, guests surrounded the pool to enjoy specialty cocktails and upbeat jazz tunes by The Mattson 2 while lounging on vintage lounge furniture. On their way to dinner, guests pulled their escort cards from ribbons dangling amidst greenery and votives from a gazebo on the lawn. The custom-built reception tent was draped in hundreds of yards of raw muslin with edison bulbs hanging above each table, and long taper candles tucked into brass holders lined the head table. Nestled into the napkin at each place setting was a Mast Brother’s chocolate bar with custom watercolor art featuring the bride and groom’s names and a leaf motif that was used throughout the wedding, from invitations to table numbers. The night ended with delicious cakes from Miette, handmade caramels by the bride’s friend and bridesmaid, and hours of dancing to tunes by The Leftover Cuties.

The following day, their guests spent a lazy day relaxing by the pool, feasting on roasted pig, sweet and savory crepes, and specialty cocktails. The details of the weekend were planned and designed from start to finish for their guests to feel the bride and groom’s love and appreciation.”

Amelia & Michael

We were absolutely thrilled to capture Amelia & Michael’s day. From beginning to end it was a refined, elegant and unforgettable experience.

Amelia & Michael’s wedding was featured in Style Me Pretty & Elements of Style. Style Me Pretty had this to say about the day:

“A modern southern belles approach to a summer solstice garden party. It was important to us to compliment and enhance the natural outdoor setting. We wanted to draw inspiration from the different gardens of the Elm Bank space using lush, feminine elements with a mix of modern and living materials. We wanted the wedding to feel romantic with each garden full of summer blooms and greenery, personal with hand written vows and toasts by the people closest to us, and like a reflection of us as a couple with signature cocktails and a customized wedding ceremony.

A few of my favorite visual details included the green moss A & M that hung on the entrance gate to Elm Bank, handkerchiefs with our monogram for each guest during the ceremony, and on either side of the aisle we had various garden flowers “sprouting” from the ground. It was also very important to transform the Sperry Tent into a garden type space, complete with delicate ferns wrapped in the chandeliers to a living wall that became the backdrop for the band. Another special touch was an assortment of family heirloom sterling silver vessels, complete with monograms of my family from generations passed, which held delicate garden inspired flower arrangements. The flowers lined the crisp white hemstitched linen table clothes. A perfect nod to a bygone Southern romantic era.”

Brooke & Ryan

Becoming friends with our clients has to be one of our favorite parts of what we do. Brooke and Ryan’s love and commitment to one another was incredible to capture. Their wedding was intimate and showcased their personalities perfectly.

Charlie & Tony

Before Charlie and Tony even knew we did weddings, they saw a concert documentary we produced air on HBO and reached out to us to see if we would want to be a part of their day. After we got to know them we knew it would be a perfect fit. We loved getting to spend time capturing moments with their friends and family at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in NC.

Aditi & Calvin

We are thrilled to share with you Aditi and Calvin’s wedding today. This intimate outdoor wedding in the city mixed Indian, Mediterranean, and American traditions to perfection.

Christine & Dave

“What happens when you bring Gatsby grandeur to the mountains of North Carolina? An unforgettable wedding!” – Style Me Pretty

We’re excited to share this beautiful film from Christine & Dave’s wedding that was recently featured on Style Me Pretty!

Christine, Dave, and the wedding party stayed at Rockwood Lodge for the wedding weekend. The mountain view was the perfect place for their first look and wedding party photos before driving down the mountain to The Farm at Old Edwards.

Thank you, Style Me Pretty, for featuring their wedding!

Maggie & Jake

When our friends Maggie and Jake told us they were getting married on their hometown farm we were immediately hooked. We loved getting to work with Rylee Hitchner and capture their day.

Planning a wedding at your home could fill even the most organized couple full of stress and anxiety. That’s why we love the sentiment behind Maggie and Jake’s wedding celebration, set at the bride’s family farm: behind every decision was the ultimate goal to ensure that their guests were able to look around themselves, and appreciate the simple, overwhelming beauty of creation. And though the details weren’t of high importance to them, everything from the bride’s amazing custom dress to the simple tablescapes and organic florals were all, in a word, beautiful.

Reflections from the bride on her wedding day:

“The first question everyone always asked after they found out Jake and I became engaged was whether or not we were going to have the wedding on my family’s farm (which inevitably operates as an actual wedding venue). I always said yes, it was never really a question to me. However, growing up I never imagined myself getting married in my own backyard & to be honest I don’t even think I really gave much thought to my own wedding until we started working in the wedding industry.

When it finally came time to sit down and sift through all of the wedding day details I didn’t want to simply make decisions because it would follow the traditional pattern of a wedding or make something “look” beautiful. I wanted everything to have more meaning and depth to it than that; I wanted the wedding to “feel” beautiful because of the intention behind the details. I remember sitting down with Abany one day and explaining that when I envisioned the wedding, I wanted our guests to see creation in its simplest form. I am a firm believer that less is more in so many aspects and I wanted our guests be able to look around and appreciate the true and simple beauty that comes as a gift to us everyday, unfiltered and untouched.

I wanted the guests to see the natural beauty that I bear witness to everyday on the farm; the varying colors of green in an open field, the vast tree line above, the way the light trickles through the pathways, the sweetness of gathered loved ones. I wanted guests to see the wonderful and beautiful gift of creation.”

Natasha & Michael

Our first time traveling to Kansas City was a blast. Thankful for Natasha and Michael for trusting us with their most important day.
