Brandi & Ken’s Wedding at Pelican Hill Resort

Brandi & Ken are such a fun couple. The guys got ready in the private villa just a  short golf cart ride away from the bridal lounge where the bride and bridesmaids were getting ready.  The ladies had a relaxing morning with lots of time for their hair and makeup to be done to perfection.  No better way to celebrate than a champagne toast with your besties.

I knew the wedding ceremony would be like no other when the Quartet played Guns and Roses’ Sweet child of mine as the bride walked down the aisle.  The ceremony was held on the oval lawn with ocean views. The Italian rotunda was completely decorated with white drapes and a chandelier. The site was stunning.

Brandi stole the show as she walked down the aisle in her Christian Louboutins  and custom designed bridal gown by Ryan and Walter. Of course Ken was looking sharp in his tux and his groomsmen cleaned up well looking dapper.

As soon as the bride and groom kissed over 100 white doves were released.  What a great finally to the ceremony. After the vows were exchanged I took the newlyweds for a quick portrait session around the resort. The wedding guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with more great views.

The time had come for the couple to make their grand entrance into the Mar Vista room. The ballroom was decorated with white drapes and piping, a custom dance floor with their initials on it, a stage for La Allstars the band to perform on, and beautifully decorated tables with white linen and white chairs.  The white carpet that was brought in to cover the ballroom tied the whole room together beautifully.  When you have an amazing wedding cake the best way to display it is on hanging platter.

What would a wedding party be without a photobooth and a cigar bar with rollers.  The guests seemed to really enjoy celebrating Brandi and Ken’s luxury wedding.

Thanks for choosing Christopher Todd Studios
