The Ebell Club in Long Beach is definitely a great choice for a wedding. With all it's fine details, quirky, creative and elegant. With a variety of rooms to utilize (his/her prep, dining, relaxing, main, dance floor).

We had shot Emily & Justin's engagement earlier in the year, and knew we were in a for a fun-filled treat. This was a cute, sweet and loving couple, happily nervous to proclaim their love in front of their family and friends.

The ladies popped some bubbly ("you'll take your eye out!"), cracked some jokes, had some laughs and shared a few timely stories.

Her gorgeous dress on full display, it was a sight to behold.

Meanwhile, dapper and sharp, Justin got done up to the nines, with his boys by his side. The parlor giving a refined feel, filled with wood grains and leather.

Also cracking jokes and saying a couple stories from their friendships together (NSFW!)

The Ebell has stunning tile floors, timeless arches and a top to bottom aesthetic that is one of our favorites. Perfect for a long walk to a first look.

After tucking Emily away in her suite, the guests anxiously awaiting the bridal party procession. Justin also waited with baited breath. No matter how many times you see your partner, there's always something about seeing them walking down the aisle that just does a little something to you.

It was a great ceremony, with an exuberant officiant overseeing it all. He really got the crowd into it and you could feel the love and support emanating from everyone.

After a little 'couples session' in one of the many super-cool side rooms, it was time for reception. The ballroom, with it's huge vaulted ceilings and globe chandeliers, is impressive, rustic and inviting all at the same time.

Thank yous filled with genuine appreciate, speeches filled with personal insight and humorous quips. It was a joyous time.

Then... party! With it's memorable tiled floors and surrounding 360 balcony area, the dance floor makes you feel like you're rocking out in a boutique castle courtyard.
