New Orleans Wedding Royal Sonesta



ChristineBentleyPhotography_2573

My first few conversations about this wedding began last April. I was contacted by Terry Cambise and was told her client was interested in hiring me to photograph her wedding in New Orleans! Oh YES PLEASE! Of course I would be honored, and from the moment we booked I was very excited!! Fast forward a few months, and finally I was talking to my bride. You see how that happens? IF I shoot your wedding, you become a #ChristineBentleyBride, or groom….and I kind of take you on as my own! Ha ha, after all, I am telling the most important day of your life right? Well….so finally my crazy super busy executive for a bride, had to fly to Los Angeles to get her custom Michael Costello gown fitted, so, Southern Style, we HAD to do a formal bridal portrait for her escort table display….and a boudoir session, to which I would love to show you even ONE photo, but I wouldn’t dare….until maybe one day Malena gives me the green light! Anyways, we spent a lot of time together and like all my brides, I believe that we developed a trust. My client’s best interest are always my priority, especially when I can call them friends. In the end, I want them to always have the best photos possible….and I want them too also enjoy their day, after all it is pretty magical! So I enjoyed showing up in New Orleans with a warm heart, very much looking forward to shooting this wedding. There were a lot of moving parts and many things going on, from the humidity, to the heat, fireworks and lots of bling! I certainly could not have photographed this amazing wedding if it wasn’t without the help of the phenomenal team that accompanied me! Thank you Bob Davis and Diego Martirena for flying from Chicago, and of course Kristine Andrews for coming from the OC with me. We certainly had a blast, and I would do it all over again in a heart beat! Malena and Mathew, your wedding was amazing and I wish you both nothing but happiness! XXOO

Montage Laguna Beach Wedding



Christine Bentley Photography.

So Much…..LOVE! I mean fun, or wait, I do mean LOVE! Isn’t it the most incredible thing in the world to find your best friend, and fall so deeply in love that you marry each other? That is how I see these two! Not only are they incredibly beautiful and so much fun, but they truly love having fun together. I totally loved seeing them glance at each other, smile and even laugh at each other…..and ummm…speaking of laughing Alexa has to have one of the greatest laughs ever! I know what you were thinking, you were probably thinking I was going to say her eyes, and her hair, or her smile…or how about that incredible hair( I know I said it twice)! Well….then I’d have to agree she is one of the great ones, a bride that I loved to photograph…and yes we also had fun! They had an incredible beach wedding with amazing floral designs by Bloom Box….that arch! WOW! and her shoes! Hello! The view at the Montage is very hard to beat….but again, how fun was that Tribute to Louisiana’s Second Line and New Orleans! How FUN!…and can I just tell you that I LOVED their first dance! They totally nailed it and it was a pleasure to watch and photograph! I wish these two nothing but the BEST! I certainly hope that their wedding day was everything that they dreamed it would, as they were for sure the clients I thought they would be! Congratulations you guys! XXOO Thank you Melissa and Elsa for being so wonderful and creating a flawless event! XXOO

Jen and Jason, you really can’t find a more all American couples than this! This gorgeous couples got married last weekend at the St. Regis Monarch Beach’s CLUB 19.

Balboa Bay Club Wedding Mallory and Austin



ChristineBentleyPhotography_1938

If my poor little son didn’t require stitches over this holiday weekend, this blog post wouldn’t be so late! Late for me at least! Mallory and Austin went all out to celebrate their very amazing nautical themed wedding at the Balboa Bay Club! Thanks to an amazing team of professionals, this wedding was amazing! It had the most incredible details!

For Mallory, today was a celebration that brought back memories as a child, as her great grandmother’s birthday was on the 4th, and she even lived on Balboa Island where she would vacation with her family. So, what a great way to ring in the 4th, than with a wedding! She tugged at my heart with a warming memorial for her father who was watching her from the heavens above as she said I do to the man of her dreams. Even more tear jerking was her devotion from her two brothers who gave her away. The day was so wonderful. So full of emotion, and with a giant bridal party, it was totally fun! Thank you again to Kristine Andrews for being a great and wonderful second, and Alex Tsirtsis for being a spectacular assistant! Please enjoy the lovely photos of Mallory and Austin! XXOO
