{real wedding} bob + jill’s wedding details | marina del rey

Robert and Jill were such a fun and energetic couple to work with!  From the beginning I knew that their wedding would be a blast… with a groom from Boston (who went to Boston College & USC) and a bride from Indiana (who went to Notre Dame), how can you go wrong!  Their romance grew ironically out of a football rivalry (read about their adorable engagement story) and ended in a stunning Santa Monica / Marina Del Rey wedding.  We saw a sneak peek a couple of months ago… but here are more of the gorgeous images by Felicia Perry Photography.

Jill started her day off getting ready with her girls at the Marriott Marina Del Rey.  From the beautiful custom handkerchiefs to their dog in a tux to the personalized foam fingers (yes, they’re both avid sports fans), the day was filled will little details that shouted “bob & jill.”

After the traditional catholic ceremony at St. Monica’s Catholic Church in Santa Monica, the wedding party boarded a RED TROLLEY (!!!) and headed over to the Venice boardwalk and beach for some gorgeous portraits under the California sun!

I loved Jill’s mix of vibrant colors & wildflowers combined with a traditional and elegant black & white color scheme.  One of my favorite touches were the “social media” details.  Both Bob & Jill love Facebook and check-in everywhere they go, so to make it fun for the guests, the place cards were Facebook Status Updates on their “check-ins” and the table numbers were the Facebook check-in page!  They even pulled all of the guests Facebook photos from their profiles and added it to their place cards!  Love the creativity!

The evening was filled with lots of dancing, good friends & family (most who traveled across the US) and definitely a few cocktails….
