Maria and Michael were married about two weeks ago at my new favorite local place to shoot, The Adamson House in Malibu. I really really hope that it is okay and hasn't been damaged in the fires, because it's just a great house with gorgeous light all around the grounds.

Maria and Michael are not your typical couple. They aren't ones to do something without making sure to put their stamp and style on it, and their wedding was definitely a reflection of that. From the Greek touches they added to pay tribute to Maria's heritage to the wandering magician entertaining groups of people at the cocktail hour, the wedding was all that they hoped it would be: whimsical, romantic, relaxed, and dreamlike. The whole day was so beautiful it almost had a surreal quality to it.

Check out the photos!

See why Adamson is so great? Tons of beautiful DETAILS:

I've been playing with textures more and more lately and loving it! I think I'm getting the hang of what to do and what not to do to enhance images, no detract from them, and still keep my style:

Maria and Michael spent time before the wedding together and with their friends & family. Maria wore the most beautiful red Vera Wang gown for this part of the day:

Maria had these teal feathers which I LOVED! Brides, if you're sick of flowers try feathers--they are awesome!

This detail reminded me of Greece with the crisp blue and white. If anyone out there is getting married in Greece or Europe, please call me because I want to go back!

This was the light right before the ceremony. If I had my way, we would have shot portraits during it and skipped the wedding ceremony :)

But the show must go on. Maria, walking down the aisle:
