Santa Monica Wedding: Aaron and Joy

Aaron and Joy tied the knot in May at The Victorian in Santa Monica.  Many of the guests traveled from all over the world to celebrate Aaron and Joy’s marriage, which made the day even more special.   The Victorian is such an amazing venue and had so many great spots throughout three levels… so while Joy was getting ready in the beautiful bridal lounge upstairs, Aaron was hanging out with his best man and groomsmen in the downstairs speak easy.  They waited to see each other for the first time at the ceremony and I just loved the emotions between Aaron and Joy.  After the emotional and touching ceremony, the evening was filled with beautiful toasts, excellent food, dancing, and much more.  Enjoy the photos! -Allison
