This intimate outdoor wedding was so serene. Caitlin and Will got married at The 1909 wedding venue in Topanga. The wedding venue was set in a beautiful wooded area. It was so secluded; almost felt like a destination wedding!

Caitlin and Will got ready together at the venue. After that, we walked the grounds to take posed and candid couple photographs before the ceremony. The day was bright and sunny, and trees surrounded the venue. The sun streamed through the trees, which made for such a pretty backdrop!

A close friend officiated Caitlin and Will’s wedding ceremony. Caitlin and Will each chose one person for their wedding party. I love when wedding parties and officiants are members of the bride and groom’s close circle. It makes the wedding that much more intimate and special.

My favorite part of the day was photographing the wedding reception. All of the guests came together to dance and celebrate the marriage. Even Caitlin’s grandma danced the night away! It was fun to watch Caitlin and Will celebrate their special day with the people closest to them.

Are you getting married soon? I’d love to chat with you! Shoot me a message at and we will plan your special day together. I would love to work with you.
