Real Wedding: Museum of Art Wedding in Long Beach, CA Danielle & Brendan
Danielle and Brendan dreamed of having a laid back backyard-vibe wedding. While their venue was far from being a backyard, the Long Beach Museum of Art had a large lawn and an ocean view patio perfect for their intimate celebration. Their family traveled from all over but mostly from New York as they're California transplants. Brendan proposed to Danielle in their apartment in what Danielle describes as the perfect proposal- it was so them. They wanted their wedding to have a cool-vibe and with VoxDJ as their MC and groove masters, they sure did have the coolest wedding. Danielle and Brendan said I Do with the pacific ocean as their backdrop. They then headed over to the massive patio to enjoy cocktails and the most delicious appetizers from the on-site restaurant. While their guests enjoyed cocktails their reception tables were being set and food prepared to be delivered fresh and hot. After shedding some tears during toasts, they all headed to the dance floor for the first dance and then the real party got started. They partied till the very end and off they went to their after-party because two hours just wasn't enough, especially for these New Yorkers. This very special day was captured by Moo of Olli Studios, a New Yorker himself who travels as he's sought after for his unique photojournalistic style of photography.
Danielle and Brendan were clear in the direction they wanted their day to be documented. That's why they hired Olli Studios because Moo captures realistic moments. They didn't want their photos to be overly staged or posed other than to capture one formal picture of each of their special guests. They wanted their moments to be raw and organic and that's what they got here. They had fun on their day not worrying about looking top notch (although they did, naturally, end up looking that way) but wanted to present in the moment on the best day ever.
