Svetlana and Mike’s destination wedding took place at the picturesque Malibu Rocky Oaks tucked away in the Santa Monica Mountains of Malibu. These two and their 1 year old daugher, Elizabeth, are based in Pittsburg but have always love Malibu and thought it felt like home! This summer wedding had details of formal elegance and rustic beauty. Take this moment to prepare yourself for this wedding because you’re about to be pulled into Svetlana and Mike’s whirlwind of a night!
Immediately following the ceremony, the couple did the Hora dance with their family and friends right there on heli-pad with a view to die for! Svetlana and Mike consider themselves fooides and that detail showed during their reception. Guests were treated to a luxurious spread during the cocktail hour. They even had a team shucking oysters right there; Talk about fresh! Svetlana and Mike wanted their guests to remember this amazing night and gifted each one of them with a special bottle of wine from Malibu Rocky Oaks.
The entire night of Svetlana and Mike’s wedding I felt the love and romance these two share with each other. I still can’t get over how well each beautiful detail was executed! I wish these two nothing but a lifetime of love and happiness!
Malibu Rocky Oaks is one of my favorite venues to photograph! You can see here another timeless wedding I had the pleasure of photographing a few months ago. It’s such a stunnnig venue!
