Calamigos Ranch Wedding Video | Birchwood Room | Malibu, CA | Penelope + Josh
I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to head to Malibu, California to shoot this Calamigos Ranch Wedding. Penelope and Josh are two of the sweetest people you will meet and after watching this video you will understand what I am talking about. They contacted me late in the year and asked if I would be willing to make the trip out. When I heard a little about their wedding, and what they had planned, I knew I had to be a part of the day.
The day itself did not disappoint. The bride stayed on the premises in one of the suites, which had a large glass shower in the middle of the bedroom. The groom got ready up the hill with the other men. We were running a little behind, as weddings often do, but still were able to get a lot of shots of the couple together. They did their first look right outside the tunnel leading up to the Birchwood Room. The ceremony space was really great. The sun was setting in the background and provided great lighting, while the trees were large enough to shade the entire area keeping people cool. From here we headed up the stairs into the reception space, which connects the indoors with an outdoor deck with a huge tree growing in the middle. They had all the tables out on the deck with lights dangling from the trees. It was gorgeous. I must say their desserts table was the best looking I have ever seen! I should have grabbed more sweets on the way out…
I had a lot of fun following these two around and really like how the final film turned out!
