This wedding was literally one of our most favorite weddings of the year! The couple and their families? Oh my god—so sweet, kind and thoughtful! We especially loved that the bride surprised the groom under the chuppah with a virtuoso violin performance of the Love Theme from Cinema Paradiso. Apparently, he had asked her if she knew how to play it on their first date, so naturally, she learned it for their wedding ceremony. Not a dry eye in the house. And the venue? The Sherman Library and Gardens – omg, in 16 years, we’ve never seen it before and we were instantly obsessed. It’s such a stunning hidden event venue in the middle of Orange County. Sherman Library and Gardens wedding photography could not be easier. And as a result, every photograph of the bride and groom more gorgeous than the last.
Even if you aren’t getting married at the Sherman Library and Gardens we suggest grabbing a good book and a coffee and heading over to sit beneath the gorgeous trees and enjoy the gardens on any lazy Southern California Sunday. A true hidden gem.
And let us not forget to tell you about the party. Off the hook! Since the groom’s family was from Peru, the dance floor was packed all night. South Americans truly know how to party. The horah was legit and the Peruvians were on fire. Such a perfect day.
