From Romance and Revelry Weddings and Events: “Our Art Deco and Old Hollywood inspired styled shoot came out of my vision for the perfect wedding day. There are so many engagement sessions photographed at Griffith Observatory but weddings typically aren't allowed. Griffith Observatory would be the perfect setting for an actual wedding. It has amazing views of Los Angeles, beautiful Art Deco architecture and an intrinsic feeling of Old Hollywood glamour. The couple involved in our shoot, Sarah and Tadashi, are a real-life couple and I believe it shines through magnificently in the photographs. You can see their playfulness and love simply oozing out of the shots. Our dress, by designer Deborah Lindquist, is an eco-friendly design made of a hemp and silk blend. The headpiece is a vintage sari cathedral veil and art deco inspired beaded headpiece which flows beautifully with the champagne mermaid gown. Griffith Observatory opened to the public May 14th, 1933, and has been an iconic Hollywood landmark ever since. It was most famously used in several major scenes in the 1955 James Dean film Rebel Without a Cause. The morning we captured this styled shoot was absolutely magical, not a single person who witnessed the shoot would disagree. On such a perfect morning with such a lovely couple we truly felt the presence of Hollywood stars of the past.” Betsy Newman Photography captured these beautiful images!
