Ingrid & Timothy

In April of 2013, Ingrid & Timothy started their lives together over an unforgettable wedding weekend in Santa Monica, California. Both Ingrid and Tim were raised Catholic so the ceremony was fittingly held at the picturesque SAINT MONICA’S CATHOLIC CHURCH. Ingrid made her way down the aisle in a gorgeous Elie Saab dress.

Serving as the community’s pastor for over twenty years, Monsignor Torgerson joyously and commandingly presided over the mass. For the music, the bride and groom worked with wedding cantor Phoebe Crenshaw, a gifted vocalist, who freshened up the traditional music with her incredible talent. Directly after the mass, all of the wedding guests gathered on the steps of the church for a huge group shot. Even the bride and groom’s beloved dog Henry was able to make it for the picture!

Following the ceremony, the bridal party boarded a trolley and headed to Venice Beach and the Santa Monica waterfront for idyllic Southern Californian picture opportunities. Meanwhile, the guests headed over to the reception at the elegant HOTEL CASA DEL MAR. A beachfront cocktail hour with tray-passed hors d’oeuvres preceded the sit-down catered meal. With guests choosing from three area hotels and shuttle service provided to each, dancing and drinking stretched until midnight thanks to the fantastic Los Angeles-based DJ, THE FLASHDANCE.

Earlier in the week, the bride and groom took measures to establish a fun and cheerful tone to the festivities. Since the groom hails from the east coast, a small, laid back gathering was hosted on Thursday evening at the Philadelphia-themed bar The Shack to welcome early arrivals, who were treated to cheesesteaks and pitchers of beer. A larger, festive rehearsal dinner followed Friday night at Border Grill for the bridal party, family, and all out-of-towners. Servers passed mojitos and margaritas as the attendees entered, allowing a good number of guests to meet and mingle before the wedding day.

Overall, Ingrid and Tim strove to create a wedding that both they and their guests would never forget. Their only regret is that they can’t do it all over again.
