Neille & Alfred first met just outside of James' Beach restaurant. He said something snarky and the rest, as they say, is history...

From strolling along the Venice boardwalk, a magician, a fortune teller and their first chance meeting in comic form, Neille and Alfred's details truly made this intimate, DIY, 1920's carnival themed wedding unique to them and fun for everyone. Neille and Alfred are the type of people you feel instantly comfortable with. It was a joy to witness the love.

Special thanks to Laura Guerrie of Rebel Belle Weddings for getting me together with these two amazing people and making sure the day ran smoothly. She is epic.

Congrats to Neille and Alfred!

We started out with the a First Look just in front of the restaurant.

Then, we headed to the boardwalk.

Took photos with the natives.

This is the exact spot where they met. Just to the right of the restaurant.

A mother/daughter moment before the ceremony.

Neille's mom made the lovely floral centerpieces.

 Alfred's dad had one of the sweetest toasts ever. He shared photos of Alfred when he was a kid. He was and is so proud of his son.

Now on to the dance party!

Even the staff at James' Beach started partying!

 Thank you Neille and Alfred. I had a rad time. xo, Rachel
