Allison Callaway is a Top Ten Fearless Photographer of 2013. Congratulations!

All year long she has been killing it with her creativity, passion and drive to push herself. She continually inspires our whole team. We are all so proud of her accomplishment, which is really amazing. Why? The Fearless Photographer Contests truly celebrate gorgeous and inventive wedding photography. The competition is fierce. The contests are held every two months in which over 10,000 photos are submitted from all over the world, and only 250-300 are deemed worthy for an award. This means she has had images chosen from every round, sometimes several images. Most people are happy just to get one. Allison won 15 in 2013! This ties her for 4th place  overall with Erin Chrisman and Victor Lax! I came in right behind here, 4 off her count, with an Honorable Mention, tied for 9th place overall.

We are so happy to share the Rose McGowan wedding today! Rose’s wedding to Davey Detail took place at the famous Paramour Mansion, located high in the hills of the Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles. Designed by Rose and planned by our good friend Amber Gustafson and Nira deLuna of Amber Events, the wedding was filled with super stylish personal details and references to Davey’s hometown of New Orleans. The Paramour Mansion, a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, was once a nunnery and is now owned by Los Angeles restaurateur and designer Dana Hollister who has filled it with priceless antiques and oddities from her trips around the world. It is rumored to be haunted – a perfect place for the former Charmed actress’ wedding.

Some of our favorite details include the invitations designed by the groom himself, the wrought iron gates with flowers, custom terrariums, vintage tables and custom chairs (which Rose has custom upholstered), Rose’s wedding dresses (Monique Lhuillier – wedding and Grace Loves Lace for the party) , and the very special wedding cake which was a replica of Rose’s mother’s wedding cake. Special thanks to all of the amazing artists who contributed to Rose’s special day: Fantasy Frostings, Copper Willow Invitation Printing & Calligraphy, Holly Flora – florals, Found Rentals for the vintage furniture, Auntie Em’s Kitchen Catering, Town & Country Rentals, Stage Labs Lighting, California Feetwarmers – the New Orleans style jazz band, DJ Madison Stewart, and Amber, Nira, Misha and the entire Amber Events staff.

Finally, a special thank you to Rose and Davey – thanks for bringing us into the fold and including us in your day. You made us dance, you made us laugh and you made us cry! This was a celebration for the ages!

Keren and Sasan were married in a beautiful and Legendary Park Plaza Hotel wedding. Built in 1925 as an Elks Lodge, and later transformed into a luxury hotel, The Legendary Park Plaza Hotel has  been used in a variety of motion pictures, television series and commercials (most recently, Gangster Squad with Sean Penn.) There is so much history and significant architecture that has been designated by the City of Los Angeles as a Historic-Cultural Monument. What a place to get married!

Planned by Neda Davari from BASH Inc., the modern Persian ceremony took place in the Grand Ballroom. The reception was held in the capacious Terrace Room. Keren and Sasan dressed at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel which is where we photographed their getting ready, first look and bridal party shots.

Brandon and Amena’s gorgeous Vibiana wedding is featured in a spectacular spread in the current issue of Inside Weddings magazine. This issue is jam packed with wedding eye-candy and we couldn’t be more impressed with the featured weddings. We are honored to have this Vibiana wedding included. This is amazing timing as Brandon is a defensive tackle for the Seattle Seahawks who play this Saturday against the New Orleans Saints in the NFL Divisional Playoffs. How awesome would that be if his team made it to the Super Bowl!! Brandon and Amena, we will be watching on Saturday!

This issue of Inside Weddings is on newsstands now. Make sure to check it out! It’s gorgeous!
