Jonathan Beach Club Wedding

Bride and groom kissing during sunset at Los Angeles Beach. Wedding photo taken by Cheers Babe Photo.

Kaitlin & Josef’s Santa Monica wedding was so stinkin’ precious!! Kaitlin’s vintage touches throughout tied every detail together beautifully. Not to mention how stunning she was in her colorfully embroidered wedding dress! Talk about a statement gown!

One of my favorite parts of the day was the incorporation of a very special car. Kaitlin’s dad collects and fixes up vintage cars and he worked hard on this gleaming Thunderbird for his baby girl’s wedding — specifically because it was her mother’s favorite. After losing her mom, this was a special way to feel her presence on wedding day. Her dad even added a special plaque on the dash commemorating the day.

The pair hosted a small, intimate ceremony at a church in Westwood, with a reception at the nearby Jonathan Club overlooking the beautiful sunset on the water. It was California perfection! Kaitlin & her bridesmaids even performed a short swing dance together at the reception – it was a blast!
