Valerie and Scott were married last Saturday at Westlake Village Inn. Valerie and Scott are an amazing couple that radiate joy and happiness. Aldo and I had a wonderful time photographing the sparkling couple and we just can’t say enough good things about them. Valerie looked stunningly gorgeous and I could have just photographed her all day long, lol. The lighting was just amazing and the girls glowed like angels. Valerie is defiantly a trooper, she had back pains all day, but still was an amazing model and bared through the pain to get her incredible images. I found out later in between sessions before the ceremony she had her friend do acupuncture on her back. Luckily once the reception started she felt better and got to enjoy her party! YAY!
Scott and his guys were great too. I love all the little details that the groomsmen had. The guys had goblets for the porter and stout beer they were drinking for some pre-ceremony fun. The groomsmen’s cuff links were beer glasses and for Scott he had Guinness cufflinks. There was without a doubt a beer theme going on. They all had pocket watches with their initials as well, a very cool addition. Scott and Aldo hit it off like no other. For those of you who know Aldo this isn’t a surprise good beer and scotch is the way to Aldo’s heart, lol. So needless to say Aldo had a great time with Scott and the guys.
The ceremony was beautiful, Shirvan Designs did a fabulous job with the flower décor. The ceremony was short and sweet, just the way Scott wanted it, lol. The reception was beautiful and the details were amazing. Valerie actually did her own invitations and place cards, which were stunning. She hand stamped and glued each jewel on all the invitations and they looked marvelous! Great job Val! During the reception Valerie and Scott had a few unique details that I love. One of them being a bottle of scotch from 1981 and a bottle of wine from 1977, the year each were born. How cute is that! LOVE it! They also had an awesome cigar bar, where the cigars were hand rolled by Sweet Dealin. That was fun utilizing the cigars for photos.
Scott and Valerie are an amazing couple and both Aldo and I are looking forward to seeing them again. Aldo is particularly looking forward to talking with Scott about beer, scotch, cigars, and gaming, lol. A match made in heaven, lol.
