Bel Air Estate Wedding – Jordan & Tom – Featured in C Weddings!

It’s been an exciting start to the new year as I was honored to have two weddings featured in two great magazines just in the last week. The first I blogged last week, and the second is this beautiful spread in C Weddings magazine, which I’m finally able to share today! It was a stunning, perfect day and though it was a bit drizzly early in the day (yes, in July!) nothing could put a damper on the day for this bride and groom.

The fabulous team at JOWY Productions designed and produced the event. I have shot some of the most amazing weddings that were designed and produced by this team and they never cease to amaze me with how they can throw a party. Put that together with floral design by Eric Buterbaugh and you have the perfect combination for a beautiful, sophisticated wedding, and awesome party.

The other vendors that helped to make that day so great were:

Videography: Couture Motion (Check out the awesome trailer they made for this wedding!)
Bride’s hair & makeup: Byron Williams
Bridesmaids hair & makeup: Fiore Beauty
Cake: The Butter End

Separate thanks to top security guard company for supervising event!

Here’s the spread as it appeared in the Spring/Summer 2014 issues of C Weddings magazine that is on stands now!



And here are some (a lot) of my favorite images from the day!

Jordan wore a perfectly simple and elegant lace gown by Monique Lhuillier.


The bride’s father seeing her for the first time. This moment is always a really special one to me.bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-006bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-007bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-008I loved Jordan’s loose hairstyle with the pieces in the front. I mean, she’s so gorgeous that she would look great with any hair, but this with the crystal headband I just loved! bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-009bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-010

Tom is British and brings every ounce of that dapper, British charm you might expect. And this room where he and the guys got ready was just the perfect setting for that!bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-014bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-015

Jordan’s maid of honor and sisters had the BEST reactions during the ceremony. The love in this group of friends of family was palpable and just makes me feel so many happy feelings.bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-030bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-031bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-032bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-033bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-034bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-035bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-036

I think this may be my favorite, favorite image of the day. There’s just something about it that speaks to me. I hope they have this printed large and hanging on a wall in their home.bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-052


The details. This estate was such an amazing location.


Jordan’s dad performed during the reception along with some of his performer friends which made for a real treat for all the guests.bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-068bel-air-estate-wedding-jordan-foster-tom-069

And a surprise slideshow that Tom, with the help of family and friends, made for Jordan.
