An Intimate Wedding at Terranea
On a perfect fall afternoon in one of the most beautiful oceanfront locations in Southern California, Cheryl and Ken exchanged vows in an intimate wedding at Terranea. The couple found me through Google and I was thrilled to be not only their photographer, but also their witness.
They met on Match.com in early 2013 and soon realized that they had a mutual friend who had tried to introduce them to each other years earlier. It seems as though they were destined to be together.
They live in Chicago but after having visited Palos Verdes on previous trips to Los Angeles they decided that a wedding at Terranea would be perfect. And, as you see, it was.
About the location
Terranea is a wonderful location not only for wedding ceremonies, but also for pre or post wedding photography and every other type of portraiture. With the ocean on one side and the PV hills on the other, there are literally hundreds of places to take amazing photos.
Anytime of year you will find something blooming in the “sage scrub” habitat and whether the hills are a brown, rich green, or dotted with bright yellow mustard flowers, this is an enchanting place to be. On many occasions I have seen pods of dolphins swimming by and twice I’ve seen whale spouts from the cliffs.
While this was an intimate wedding at Terranea, the resort has facilities for small, medium, and very large weddings and receptions. If you’re intrigued, take a look at their site.
If you or anyone you know is planning an event on the property, or wants to use it as a backdrop for a family portrait, please give me a call. Since it’s less than 5 miles from my office, I can be there in a flash.
