Ever since Darian from the Location Connection told me about this wedding, I couldn’t get it out of my mind.  I had filmed a wedding at this amazing place (The Belle Palazzo Estate) several years ago, but only the ceremony.  I knew it was a rare find… I think the owners only lease it out for a few events a year and it has THE most amazing view of Laguna (not to mention fantastic architecture & grounds).

And then… I met Amanda & Jono.  Such a cool couple!  Amanda is originally from New Orleans and moved to Sydney, Australia for work – where she met Jono.  An Ultimate Runner (he ran like 100 something miles in one day — what?????) who is super nice and has a hilarious group of friends.  Together, they are the ultimate couple and decided to get married in the states.

The wedding was – in a nutshell – fantastic!  It featured a gospel choir for the ceremony and a “second line” right after (New Orleans tradition) as well as some Aussie influences.  The design was fantastic and the florals amazing (Tick Tock Florals did the fab job).  Amanda’s mom did most of the planning since she was across the pacific and everything came out beautifully. We also were lucky to work with Danielle from SkyeBlu for photography.  She rocked it as usual.

Enjoy their Same Day Edit! (oh and check out the clutch Amanda’s mom gave her! I want one!)
