Garrett of Garrett Photography was kind enough to share some great photos from a recent wedding at IVY Hotel. Chassie and Steve have a great sense of adventure and style and it really comes through in the photos.

Garrett not only captured the vibe and attitude of this couple he maximized the atmosphere of the venue as well. IVY Hotel is a great spot for a couple who appreciates an urban vibe in the lap of luxury.  Whether you have 50 or 250, they have a spot for you. (and their banquet tables are ovals, a little something different we like!)

Chassie and Steve definitely proved that every wedding should be a reflection of the personality of the couple. It’s all about breaking the rules if necessary and making up your own! By the way, they walked down the aisle to Radiohead! Mendelssohn who?!?  If you haven’t had an opportunity to see Garrett’s work, check out his website and see more cool couples that reaped the benefit of Garrett’s amazing eye.

Kudos to Theorie 08.14.08

The Bridal Bar San Diego

We are so excited for our friends Amy & Maurice Wright of Theorie, whose work is featured on this month’s issue of Ceremony Magazine. If you haven’t checked out their work and their very cool new website you need to take a look. In addition to seeing their amazing photos, you’ll learn that Maurice loves metal music, zombie movies and vanilla bean frappuccinos. Amy once spent the summer in a tent in Uganda, loves quilting and can communicate with Orangutans.
And of course it will be obvious that there photography is truly “art that thinks.”

Make sure you check out the Tao of Lou. It’s truly special. Here’s a quick sample of a recent photo we love. Congratulations on the cover!
