Stylized Wedding At La Bella Vida Estate

I recently photographed a stylized wedding with Estate Weddings and Events at La Bella Vida Estate and their venue exceeded all my expectations. It was my first encounter with Estate Weddings and I am excited to share my experience with my future brides.

I loved the layout and the variety of layers it provided for my clients, the vendors, and the guests. They had a spacious getting ready room that was beautifully decorated. It had such a homey ambience that it made you feel instantly relaxed. The most important thing that a vendor tries to provide for their client is a stress free day. The room also came with a small kitchen and a large bathroom.

When you step outside, you are greeted with a pool that overlooks the venue. Below is the ceremony site and further down the hill is the reception area. It has a great flow and guests are able to easily move station to station without feeling crowded or rushed. As a photographer, this is a great perk because you are able to grab your clients and isolate them from their guests in order to get fantastic intimate photographs.

Timelines are key to a wedding days so it's important to get rid of distractions so that the bride and grooms are able to receive the best portraits possible. As the guests shuffle to the reception site, you are able to take advantage of the different levels that the venue has to offer without running into problem areas such as those nicely interrupting for cell phone photos.

I also loved this venue because it was surrounded by trees which made the lighting magical. I was able to manipulate the light by dancing around the tall branches. If they are having a whimsical wedding, you can let the light peer in for the golden look. If they are having a formal setting you can hide the sun behind the trees to darken the mood and create a romantic vibe. La Bella Vida offers a variety of shooting locations that provides the client with a wide range of images. From their large grass area, white fences, tall trees, the pool, the views, and the house itself is a photographer's dream venue.

Not only is the venue great, but their staff creates an atmosphere of ease. They are quick to respond, helpful, and they are able to help your vision come to life. As a vendor, I am excited to highlight this venue to my brides and I can't wait to starting shooting at their estates in 2015.
