Wedding photos at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel:

I have to admit that Jewish wedding celebrations are one of my favorite to capture, and Aliza and Adam’s exuberant wedding day was no different. This event was overflowing with love and happiness, not only from the bride and groom, but also their families and friends. There were so many special candid moments and a lot of vibrant energy throughout the day, and I hope that is translated through the photos of this wedding at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel.

Experience as a wedding photographer has shown me that within the first 10 seconds of arriving to shoot a wedding, you know a lot about the atmosphere of the day that lies ahead. When I arrived at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel with my second photographer Charlene and assistant Natalie, I knew immediately that we were in for an incredible day.

While Charlene was with Adam as he was getting ready, I was with Aliza and her AMAZING family, who had all congregated to help her prepare for this special day. There were plenty of touching candid moments to capture, as well as an emotional first look session with her dad.

Pre-ceremony portraits at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel:

The bride and groom had planned a first look session between them before the wedding ceremony itself, but wanted Aliza’s immediate family to be there and share in the moment. In addition to capturing the expressions of Aliza and Adam as they saw each other for the first time that day, I also incorporated their parents’ warm reactions as they watched their children enter into this new chapter of life.

We then had time for a couple portrait session within the leafy green courtyard where the ceremony was to be held. I felt like the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel wedding photos we captured here really had a classic look to them, with an added comical touch as the young ring bearer covered his eyes during a kiss!

Ceremony photos at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel:

Then the Jewish celebrations really started, with Aliza and the women heading off to one room for their Bedeken ceremony and the men to another for the traditional Tish. During the Bedeken, I captured candid shots as each of the bride’s female friends and family came to congratulate her and her mother, while Charlene was with the boys during what was more of a male bonding session.

Surrounded by his male entourage, Adam then came to meet his bride and I captured candid shots as he covered Aliza’s face with the veil. The men stood together with their arms around their shoulders, singing for the women who held bouquets of flowers as they received them into the room.

Then we all got ready for the main Jewish ceremony, starting off with Adam putting on a white robe (with the help of his brother) that symbolized a cleansing of the body. It was a beautiful moment as Aliza’s parents waited to escort her down the aisle to the altar where Adam and his parents were waiting, before circling him multiple times beneath the Chuppa. I captured close-up shots as the couple completed a number of Jewish Orthodox rites and rituals, before officially becoming “husband and wife”.

Reception photos at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel:

The wedding reception was held in the lavish ballroom of Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel, with a live band and plenty of dancing long into the night. The ladies and guys were separated for the first part of the evening, each dancing together in what is a Jewish tradition, before the speeches and toasts united them again, followed by a Sheva Brachot recitation.

From the bride and groom being lifted up on chairs above the wedding party, to some wild getting down on the dance floor, I tried to capture the high energy that overflowed in these Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel wedding photos.
