If you ever met Pamela you’d know why this film is a favorite of hers. This girls wit was off the charts as was her humor, a realist and cynic and I could not have been any more happy just being around them. To say Pamela and Mike are free birds would be an understatement, it’s them against the world in their journey kicking ass and having fun, the greatest part about it is that they want to bring a long everyone else on this adventure of drink, party and celebration of life, not just on their wedding day but every day. If awesome had a character, it would look like them. The theme for Pamela and Mikes MDR MARRIOTT WEDDING was trashy meets classy….and we rocked that shit.
The entire wedding from prep – reception was held at the MDR MARRIOTT. Because of this we were able to have plenty time for getting crazy and doing fun stuff. For example with Pamela’s prep we cracked bottles that soaked me, had a giant bottle of Jameson suddenly become near empty and finally were able to get some incredible bridal shots. We didn’t have all the time in the world BUT doing my job just felt like I was fucking around with my best friends, and when that happens, two minutes feels like forever.
For this MDR MARRIOTT WEDDING the ceremony was on the roof. It was a breathtaking view…even if we Angelinos despise the smog the views from up high stir an appreciation for the city. To further the epicness ( hows that for a made up word ) instead of exchanging rings they locked up a nice bottle of Jameson Black Barrel in an oak box to open on their anniversary….or whenever they get thirsty haha. Oh the reception was rooftop too, it was incredible. The entire team of vendors really pulled out all the stops and rocked.
Then we had the reception. I could leave it at that but I won’t. Guests danced their asses off with Pamela and Mike! There was caution tape, drinks spilling, random break dancing from those that shouldn’t and just all around fun. It’s been a very long time since I experienced a reception like theirs and every night I pray that I can again soon.
Enough of me talking though, you’re not here to listen to me. Check out some the bad ass images we created for an equally bad ass couple at their MDR MARRIOTT WEDDING.
