Rustic Wedding | Calamigos Ranch in Malibu

Did you watch Mitch & Cam’s wedding on Modern Family? I was excited to see one of my favorite wedding venues on the show – the beautifully rustic Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.

I loved photographing Bailey and Aleksey’s wedding at Calamigos last summer. They held their ceremony outside amid the tall oaks and redwoods. The parasols were a beautiful added touch.

Bailey had beautiful vintage touches with her classic pearls and lace garter.

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the bride before she put on her dress.

One last check in the mirror before seeing her groom for the first time.

Aleksey fixes his tie as he waits for his bride. I loved the outdoor chandeliers in the walkway.

The father of the bride walked Bailey over the bridge and down the aisle.

How beautiful is this arbor? The flowers were all done by Malibu Event Planning and Design.

I have no idea what was so funny, but his expression was priceless.
