Jeff + AbbyHartley Botanica

Jeff and Abby met in Washington D.C. while attending law school but they did not start to date until they moved back to Southern California. I believe it took Jeff many failed attempts to get Abby to go out with him until one day she finally said yes. I have known Abby since college and anybody who knows her, will say that she is  as good as it gets: kind, smart, creative and beautiful. It was not until I traveled with them to D.C. for their engagement session that I learned Jeff is quite the catch himself.

It has been an honor to document these two love birds from their proposal to their wedding day. Their stunning Tuscan garden inspired wedding held at the most romantic private estate, Hartley Botanica was a dream to photograph. I felt so fortunate to be able to work with an outstanding group of vendors (you can find the list at the end of this post). Of course I could not have done this without my all time favorite second photographer Nelly.

Thank you Grey Likes Wedding for the feature today. To learn more of Jeff and Abby’s story please head over here.
