Joe and Steve held their Calamigos Ranch wedding in Malibu in the late fall. Surrounded by over 100 family and friends, their LGBTQ wedding ceremony was filled with love and joy. With decor beautifully designed and styled by renowned LA wedding planner, Charley Izabella King, their event was one for the ages.

One of my favorite pictures of the day. When you’ve been together for 17 years and finally tie the knot, this is what it looks like.
Joe and Steve found some private time at sunset.
I couldn’t resist using this quaint barn-shaped shed for a backdrop. Calamigos Ranch is such an amazing property–there are so many hidden, private spots for pictures like this.
Guests were treated to artisanal appetizers and cocktails outside the Redwood Room.
The decor for Joe and Steve’s reception was out of this world!
Steve is also an accomplished dancer, and so he enlisted the help from his fellow performers to choreograph an amazing dance that surprised all the guests!
