Sophie & Nicolas - Part II - West Hollywood Wedding photographer
So here is the part II ! The BIG day !
For this occasion, Sophie and Nicolas rented a vineyard domain. You can take a look here ! The domain has a huge land, and as it was a sunny day of summer, we stayed mostly outside.
The schedule of the day was :
1/ Preparation of bride and groom - make up, hair, get dressed...
2/ Outside secular wedding ceremony with the whole families, friends, this ceremony has nothing official (the official things are staying on the city hall only, in France) but it's a great opportunity to have a personnalised ceremony, to be outside, to have more people present and have the decoration the couple wants to have (It's not really possible to decorate the city hall as you want in France - and in USA as well I believe ! I actually got a pretty ugly "arch" with fake dirty purple flowers for my own wedding haha! Still make me smile though).
3/ Outside reception with drink and light food.
4/ During this time, the other photographer and me took wedding pictures of Sophie & Nicolas in the field of the domain. The light was amazing this day, we were so lucky.
5/ Dinner time ! Sophie prepared a delicious candy bar as well as a dessert buffet. I couldn't believe my eyes . Sorry no pictures of it, I was only a friend and not a photographer anymore for the evening dinner ;)
6/ Dance & Party !
I left the day after, Sophie & Nicolas's families and friends enjoyed the sunday with a home made delicious brunch. For my part, I headed to the train station to catch my "TGV" & go back home in Paris.
I prefer not to overfill this post with pictures, even if it was still VERY hard to choose what pictures I would put here. So, I will make a Part III for the wedding couple pics !
