Romantic, intimate, fun, and unforgettable
Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
I always wanted to get married in a forest, like the wedding in the movie Twilight. That's why we chose to elope under the beautiful oak trees at Sycamore Canyon Park. We invited only our immediate families to witness our vow exchange because we wanted it to be very small and intimate. Then we met our closest friends and families for a celebration under the stars.
What was your favorite wedding purchase?
Our wedding rings
What was your best wedding day memory?
Exchanging our vows
What was your something old, new, borrowed, blue?
Something old was a piece of lace from my moms wedding dress that was wrapped around my bouquet, something new was our personalized wedding champagne glasses, something borrowed was my sisters bracelet, and something blue was my garter.
Did you create any details yourself?
No everything was created by my lovely friends and family.
How did you incorporate your personality into the wedding?
We are very easygoing people and just wanted to have fun in a relaxed environment to celebrate our love with just close friends and family.
What is your wedding song?
John legend "stay with you"

I'M JANELLE MARINA
Wife, Mama Shark, + Photographer.
Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
