Congratulations to Kerri and Mark, two lovebirds who tied the knot this weekend! As beautiful as the wedding was, I know the marriage is going to be even more spectacular. Can’t wait to share more photos from their wedding, but here’s a little sneak peek. So honored I was there to document their day!

alyssa + seth | beautiful backyard wedding in denver | los angeles wedding photographer

On the first day of June this year, Alyssa and Seth became husband and wife, and I’m so honored that I was there to document every moment of it! Now, Alyssa happens to be a talented wedding photographer herself, so I was truly honored when she asked me to come out to Denver to photograph their day. It was an incredibly sweet backyard wedding full of traditions and joy, dancing and laughing, and friends and family happily celebrating the special love between two people so perfectly suited for each other.

 

Alyssa bought her vintage 1940′s gown at a consignment store, and she didn’t even have to get it tailored. Such a lovely and lucky find!

Zivi has the most attentive and doting aunt in Alyssa!

Everyone pitched in to get the backyard ready for Alyssa and Seth’s ceremony and reception.

Alyssa and Seth received their guests separately before the ceremony, during the Kabalat Panim and Tisch.

Jack and Noa, as newlyweds of just two weeks, brought heaps of joy and cheer to the festivities! (And Alyssa was THEIR wedding photographer!)

Seth and Alyssa with Seth’s eight brothers and sisters!

After their reception, we went to downtown Denver to take some more couple portraits around sunset.

Towards the end of their sunset couple portraits, I handed one of my cameras off to Alyssa. Since she is a wedding photographer herself, I thought she would enjoy capturing some portraits of her husband!

singapore

Back in April I was lucky enough to visit Singapore with my boyfriend Daniel. We planned our visit around Passover so we could be with his family for the holiday and so that I could finally meet his parents, Sarah and Lavi! I was going to post these photos sooner, but I wanted to surprise Daniel’s parents with a photo-book of our visit, which I finally gave to them this past weekend when they visited us in L.A. for July 4th weekend. After we spent a few days in Singapore we went to Bali, and some of those pictures were recently featured on Popover, so be sure to take a peek at those too! Also, if you or anyone you know will be visiting Singapore any time soon, I’ve written up a list of travel recommendations at the bottom of this post. Happy travels!

 

Like father, like son! Daniel picked up guitar after growing up seeing his father play. They play Flamenco music, so I’ve come to love Spanish guitar these past few months. Impromptu private concerts are one of my favorite things.

Daniel’s parents live in a lovely area of Singapore called Emerald Hill. The homes are converted Chinese shophouses, and all the rich and varied architectural details make it a beautiful place for a morning stroll, camera in hand.

It’s like I have a sixth sense for hipster cafes wherever I go…

Even though we were only in Singapore for a few days, we managed to fit in quite a lot, including visiting Chinatown and this ornate Buddhist temple before having lunch at one of the famous hawker centers.

The tea masters at Tea Chapter take the art of tea very seriously. It was such a pleasure to learn so much about tea leaves and proper brewing techniques.

On another afternoon we visited the Singapore Botanical Garden, which is simply incredible.

Singapore Travel Recommendations

Emerald Hill: charming neighborhood of converted Chinese shophouses, right next to…

Orchard Road: where you will go for ALL of your shopping needs. Really, all. And when you’re tired of carrying shopping bags, take a break at…

TWG: For tea and macarons in all different kinds of unique flavors.

Chinatown: Who can resist wandering through a bustling Chinatown, with all sorts of cheap and fun tchotchkes for sale?

Buddha Tooth Temple: Want to wander through a haze of incense and see Buddha’s tooth? This is the place for that.

Singapore Art Museum: Include a bit of art on a visit to Singapore by stopping by this lovely museum with rotating exhibitions (where Daniel’s mom volunteers as a docent!)

Singapore Botanic Garden: Beautifully tropical and lush, this is one of the most outstanding botanic gardens I’ve ever been to.

Anthesis: Great coffee on Robertson Quay.

Tea Chapter: Said to be the best traditional Chinese tea shop in Singapore.

Maxwell Road Hawker Center: With over 100 food stalls, this is a must for a taste of the local food. Also, coming from LA, it was pretty thrilling to get fresh-pressed juice for $2 instead of $12.

Marina Bay Sands: Glitzy and showy, yes, super pricey drinks, affirmative, but entirely worth it for the stunning views.

larchmont mini-guide | coffee + sunday farmer’s market with kristina

This past Sunday I spent the afternoon with Kristina, one of my dearest friends. We needed to achieve precisely three things: catch up, take photos together, and get caffeinated. We decided to meet up in Larchmont Village. Larchmont is one of my favorite streets in LA, in large part because of gluten-free donuts. Just combine sidewalk cafes, cute boutiques, the requisite hipster coffee spot, a YogaWorks outpost, and a great farmer’s market, and you have everything I require in a Sunday. Scroll to the bottom for all the spots I think you should check out if you go!

We are both obsessed with Paris and all things French, so it wasn’t even a question of whether we should go in or not when we both spotted this shop…

Kristina is always so put together and chic. Even her simple weekend outfits put me to shame! But what makes her truly beautiful is that she is the kind of friend I can share my lofty dreams, secret fears, and rambling thoughts with. She is positively luminous!

Cafe Gratitude: One of my favorite places for a deliciously healthy vegan meal.

Babycakes: Gluten-free donuts?!?!?!!? Be still my heart.

Larchmont Farmer’s Market: Every Sunday, 10 am-2 pm. Browse for seasonal, organic fruits and veggies that taste ten million times better than their grocery store counterparts. You can also pick up flowers, fancy Himalayan pink salt, fresh pastries, and Health-Ade Kombucha (Kristina introduced me to the world of kombucha, and I’m already hooked. Which is the most LA confession imaginable, I know, but hey…probiotics are supposed to be really good for you!)

Chevalier’s Books: A well-curated selection of reads at this indie bookstore, perfect for a browse on a weekend afternoon.

Diptyque: Are these French candles overpriced? Yes. Are they the best smelling things on earth? Unfortunately, yes.

Pressed Juicery: In case you didn’t get your fruit and veggie fix at the Farmer’s Market, juice.

Go Get ‘Em Tiger: For all your hipster espresso needs.

Lette Macarons: 4 macarons equals one normal cookie, so probably get a dozen at least.
