ayrel hotel manhattan beach wedding photographer / annabel + jon

Annabel and Jon make my heart and soul happy. I grew up with Jon in high school and I was thrilled when he reached out to me to shoot his wedding. Annabel and Jon are always smiling, laughing and so genuinely happy and in love. It was a high school reunion at their wedding and we all had the best time. I couldn’t be happier for them.

Words from the bride

We had so much fun at our wedding!  It was important for us that our guests had fun.  We wanted our wedding to be one big party so we prioritized that above everything else while planning.  We made sure there was plenty of food and drinks for our guests to enjoy.  It was amazing seeing our vision come to life.  There were definitely stressful moments leading up to the wedding and unexpected curveballs even during the wedding but it was all worth it in the end.  We are so thankful to our awesome vendors for making everything perfect!  My favorite part of the wedding was having my mom walk me down the aisle.  It was such a special moment.  By then end of the night I was already telling Jon, “Let’s plan another wedding!”
