L’Auberge Del Mar Wedding, Part One | Jelani and Joana

POSTED IN : Weddings
FILED UNDER :

Jelani and Joana are perfect for each other because they get each other. They’re not the kind of people that wear their personalities on the surface, so it takes a little digging to figure out who they truly are. At first, Joana is a fun-loving party girl without a care in the world, but after some time with her you realize that she’s a dedicated mother, a selfless friend, and a fierce woman with enough confidence to take on anything that comes her way. Jelani seems like a quiet observer with a brain that’s constantly thinking when you first meet him, like he’s sizing up the world below his 6’11” frame at all times. But as soon as his giant smile breaks through and his eyes light up to pair with his sudden deep belly laughs, he melts your heart into a pile of butter.

Jelani and Joana’s chic wedding at L’Auberge Del Mar was the perfect combo of glam and heart. They chose every detail carefully and made sure that every decision reflected their fabulous taste and warm personalities. In fact, my favorite part of the day was Jelani’s meticulously crafted look – complete with Purcell’s for the day and a pair of Louis Vuitton’s for night. I know the shoe shots are normally reserved for the bride, but move over ladies because we’ve got one stylish groom today!
