Wedding photos at The LINE Los Angeles:

Cori and Austin were saying “I do” on Valentines Day, 2020 during a wedding at The LINE Los Angeles, with a beautiful day to mark the occasion. From the getting ready to the wedding reception, everything was happening in the one place, which made things logistically easy from my perspective and created a really relaxed atmosphere. 

I’d first met the couple last year during their engagement session at Union Station and Vista Hermosa Park in Downtown Los Angeles. Their cute dogs, Maceo and Chloe, had made a cameo appearance during the e-session and were also going to be attending the wedding!

Getting ready photos at The LINE Los Angeles:

My assistant and I arrived in the early afternoon to document the bride and groom as they prepared in separate suites. I photographed Cori as her mom helped to secure her earrings and captured a tender embrace with her soon-to-be mother-in-law before grabbing some shots showing off the back of her gorgeous dress. Meanwhile, Austin was getting ready in a separate suite where I captured a candid as he fixed his watch before a sophisticated portrait in the downstairs courtyard.

Pre-ceremony portraits at The LINE Los Angeles:

It was in the same courtyard that Cori and Austin were holding their first look session, with the bride walking up towards her emotional groom. I captured their reactions as the groom tried to hold back tears before a tender embrace between them in this loved-up moment. It was at this point that Maceo and Chloe made their appearance, with it obvious how much these four-legged little ones meant to the couple.

Ceremony photos at The LINE Los Angeles:

Austin was escorted down the aisle by both his mom and his mother-in-law, with Cori following close behind on the arm of her dad. The proceedings were being officiated by Austin’s brother while being watched on by the couple’s closest family and friends.

I captured the reactions of both sets of parents as they listened to their children exchange vows, as well as a funny moment when the officiant accidentally dropped one of the wedding bands! But everything else went smoothly as the couple were pronounced “husband and wife” and made their celebratory recessional walk down the aisle.

Post-ceremony portraits at The LINE Los Angeles:

While the guests headed off to cocktail hour, we used the opportunity for some portraits of the newlyweds in and around The LINE Los Angeles. Aside from utilizing the leafy gardens and their courtyard wedding ceremony site, I also grabbed some shots of them backed by the ornate Oasis Church, which stands adjacent to the hotel.

Reception photos at The LINE Los Angeles:

Cori and Austin kicked off their ballroom wedding proceedings with their first dance, which was followed by the cake-cutting ceremony and the mother-son dance. Cori and her dad switched things up with a lively, choreographed father-daughter dance before everyone let loose to celebrate. Throughout the night, the couple and their wedding guests took advantage of the photo booth, as well as getting a conga line going across the dance floor.

I managed to sneak out with Cori and Austin for a few nighttime portraits in front of The LINE Los Angeles. Aside from a shot of them kissing while being illuminated by an off-camera flash and a photo pointing at their wedding day hashtag, I also grabbed a portrait of them embracing on busy Wilshire Boulevard.

Wedding photos at The LINE Los Angeles:

Cori and Austin’s intimate wedding at The LINE Los Angeles was a really easy-going affair and I have to mention just how well they treated me and my assistant. Not only did Cori make sure we were well fed but she also created a goodie bag filled with snacks, just in case we got hungry!

With the current health scare, Cori and Austin are unfortunately not heading off on their honeymoon until (hopefully) later in the year. But I wish them, Maceo and Chloe all the happiness in their family life together and with whatever the future holds.
