The 1st LA NotWedding: Jenna + Jonathan { Downtown LA Lot 613 Wedding }

Earlier this year, I had the fantastic opportunity to photograph the 1st NotWedding in Downtown LA! For those who don’t know, The NotWedding is a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding. “Wedding Guests” are brides-to-be or friends who are there to watch a vow renewal, enjoy a tasty dinner and watch wedding vendors in action.  It’s a fun event and was so great to work with so many talented people!

More importantly, I connected with Jenna + Jonathan instantly. Along with their 3 adorable kids, they are warm, fun, kind sweet people so in love.

While I was photographing Jenna, this was what Jay was capturing. The vendors each had a table in the “Tunnel of Love”…and here are a few of them! The one with the gold-overload is mine…I had fun running around my office the night before grabbing all the glitter I could see. 😉
