Joy & Frankie | The Love Production | Warner Grand Theatre, Los Angeles, CA Wedding

Almost two years ago I was the photographer for Joy’s sister, and my friends, Rosa and her hubby Karl’s sweet wedding on the Chesapeake Bay. It was so much fun working with Joy on that wonderful day and I was beyond honored (frankly, blown away) when Joy asked if I would be her wedding photographer for her upcoming Los Angeles wedding. We started to talk about the details more than a year ago, so it was so exciting when the time finally came to travel. Ben and I have had the opportunity to visit San Diego, CA before, but this was our first trip to LA. Planning a mini-vacation after the wedding was exciting but I made sure Ben knew that if he was coming with me, he would also be my assistant for the wedding– and honestly? He was of course, wonderful. I was so thankful to have him by my side! And Rosa and Karl, the friends whose wedding I did two years ago- of course they were there, which made the experience that much more fun. Wait until I tell you I also got to work with one of my favorite local Maryland DJ’s for this wedding too! When I talked with my friend Ryan from Mixing Maryland about coming out to LA for this wedding too, I was so thrilled that it actually worked out! Needless to say, it was a great week. :)

Joy and Frankie’s wedding theme and title was aptly named, The Love Production. Their entire wedding took place in and around a working theatre in Los Angeles, The Warner Grand. Joy and Frankie both love old Hollywood glam and their vintage style and timeless details were perfectly woven throughout their entire wedding. Joy’s dress hung beautifully against the backdrop of the theatre’s art deco design.Los Angeles California Wedding San Pedro CA LA Wedding Photographer Warner Grand Theatre Wedding Old Hollywood Glam Wedding Averill Park San Pedro South Bay Cali Wedding Vintage Art Deco Theatre Wedding LA_0004Los Angeles California Wedding San Pedro CA LA Wedding Photographer Warner Grand Theatre Wedding Old Hollywood Glam Wedding Averill Park San Pedro South Bay Cali Wedding Vintage Art Deco Theatre Wedding LA_0001Frankie had Joy’s engagement ring made partially from an heirloom diamond and ruby from two of his family members. I love when already sentimental pieces have such added value!

We didn’t realize until half way into the bridal party portraits that this alley was someone’s “back yard”!

Every detail was well thought-out for this Old Hollywood theatre production. Motion picture icons were the centerpiece of each table and the escort cards were ticket stubs for the show. Los Angeles California Wedding San Pedro CA LA Wedding Photographer Warner Grand Theatre Wedding Old Hollywood Glam Wedding Averill Park San Pedro South Bay Cali Wedding Vintage Art Deco Theatre Wedding LA_0035Los Angeles California Wedding San Pedro CA LA Wedding Photographer Warner Grand Theatre Wedding Old Hollywood Glam Wedding Averill Park San Pedro South Bay Cali Wedding Vintage Art Deco Theatre Wedding LA_0037Los Angeles California Wedding San Pedro CA LA Wedding Photographer Warner Grand Theatre Wedding Old Hollywood Glam Wedding Averill Park San Pedro South Bay Cali Wedding Vintage Art Deco Theatre Wedding LA_0036
