Glamorous White and Gold Hollywood Wedding | Tami + Phil


You may say that Tami and Phil should have met years prior to when they did but this is the perfect example of meeting the right person at the right time. Tami and Phil not only had many friends in common (unknown to them at the time), went to rival schools in Arizona and both grew up nearby one another but did not actually come into contact until they met on the dating app, Hinge.  On their first date, Tami had gotten out of the car and slipped on the uneven ground. She didn’t get hurt though because Phil was there to catch her. This was the first of many moments that Tami knew she had found a keeper.

Then came Thanksgiving weekend, 2015. Tami had spent her childhood at sleep away camp in Malibu and had been reminiscing to Phil about her time there and how much she had wanted to show him where she spent one of her favorite childhood memories. They went to Malibu Seafood and Phil suggested they go to the top of the hill where her camp was. At this camp is a chapel with spectacular ocean views. When they got there, Tami leaned in to kiss him and he dropped to one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him.

They went to visit her twin sister, Lauren who is also her business partner for celebratory drinks. Did I mention Tami and Lauren have an incredible event planning and interior design business? Tami didn’t know this but Lauren had been at her house to pack her bags as Phil had planned an amazing romantic weekend at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa.  When they met Lauren, the surprise was out and Tami and Phil departed to Ojai where they would spend the weekend sipping champagne and celebrating their engagement.

As an event coordinator herself and as a bride, Tami and her sister took on planning her wedding. She wanted her vision to come to life not only as a bride, but as a wedding planner. Needless to say, this wedding was her baby. Her company, Side By Side Design, brought her vision to life and may I add, wow! What an impressive site it was. Take a look for yourself at their glamorous Hollywood wedding!

Thank you for allowing me to capture your special day Tami and Phil!
