“We met at a boat party that neither of us really wanted to go to. We got dragged by our respective friends to this party. My girlfriend said at the time, ‘You never know, you may meet the man of your dreams.’ As it turns out I did, although on the initial meeting neither of us realized this at the time. I think the most important thing about our relationship is that we have always both given our all to each other, taken risks, have deep love and respect for each other’s past and see the potential of our future together. Graeme truly is the most amazing person I have had the honor to know. We are always laughing together and affectionate to the point our friends can’t stand it but have also gotten used to it. We have had some amazing experiences around the world together. We have been very blessed in that respect and will always share that. Was it love at first sight? No it wasn’t. We believe what we have is built on stronger foundations than that.”
Lisa and Graemes’ beautiful relationship can’t be summarized in words. These two are truly a remarkable couple, and we are so incredibly blessed to have been able to document a unique and timeless Love such as theirs. Their Wedding Day at the Verandas Beach House in Manhattan Beach, CA was filled with close family and friends that traveled from afar, mostly from England and Australia. To turn their Wedding Day into an event that each guest could remember, Lisa and Graeme opted to do away with tradition and have a lounge-y reception instead of a sit-down dinner. This relaxed atmosphere truly allowed every guest to mingle and celebrate the entire night away. Their reception also turned into a ROAST more than TOASTS, allowing so much laughter, joy, and even a little bit of blushing to be easily documented! Oh, and how can we forget the incredible English and Australian accents we heard all throughout the day?! We loved it!
And if that wasn’t enough to sum up a PERFECT Southern California Wedding, we were able to slip away and capture some beautifully intimate moments with just Lisa and Graeme at the beach. Below are a few of our favorites moments that we were honored to capture during Lisa and Graeme’s beautiful Wedding Day!
