This year I have had the privilege to work with Beth Helmstetter, a fantastic wedding coordinator, on a few weddings and events this year. After planning events at a luxurious hotel in Hawaii she started her own company and has done some spectacular events.
A week or so ago I assisted Beth on a wedding at Rancho Sol Del Pacifico. It's a beautiful private estate atop the hills of Malibu with an amazing view of the surrounding mountains and the ocean off in the distance. This is an entirely outdoor location with a new ceremony site, a pool area usually used for cocktail hour and the main area for receptions is at the front of their house around a beautiful fountain.
The photographer for this wedding was Boutwell Studios, which does truly lovely work. Very vintage and chic in style. Very romantic.
