The Atheneum is such a neat venue, very historic and grand, yet there is an intimacy to it that draws you in. Aviva and Adam’s ceremony capitalized on that intimacy by having all the guests seated around the raised hupa. I loved the idea of having their loved ones surround them as support, it was truly beautiful. The light during the ceremony was simply phenomenal, just at that golden hour creating beautiful images full of life and color. Aviva and Adam have a pretty unique story. They met in a bar in New Orleans, and just happened to both live back in CA! With that, their friendship started, which grew to love. A proposal at Pt. Vicente Lighthouse, and a few months later, their wedding, complete with Mardi Gras beads! They had a fantastic live band which made for a fun time of dancing the night away.
