Renee&Todd

Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate, Malibu, California

I can’t stop staring at that first photo.

Renee and Todd live in Chicago, so their Malibu wedding was a destination wedding for them. They had known they wanted to get married in Malibu, and seeing photos online of Rocky Oaks Estate sealed the deal.  “Malibu Rocky Oaks was the most beautiful venue we had ever seen,” Renee said.

To take full advantage of this gorgeous property and the amazing sunset, Aaron had Renee kick off her Christian Louboutins and climb to the top of one of the pinnacles with Todd. “Climbing the mountain during dinner was a great bonding experience for us,” Renee said. “We loved it.” And from what I can tell from researching photos of this property, Renee and Todd are the first bride and groom to be photographed in that spot. I love our brave, adventurous couples!

I have been excited for Renee’s wedding since Ben and I met her at Alyssa and Anthony’s Vegas wedding several years ago. And in fact Renee was the one who told Alyssa about us in the first place, from showing her another friend’s photos that we shot – Amanda and Tom’s Chicago wedding. Renee is a bright, beautiful, fun girl, and Todd is lucky to have snatched her up. But then again, she feels the same about him.

“A good friend of mine met her hubby on Match.com and literally forced me to take over her profile,” Renee said. “After meeting several frogs, I finally met my prince.”
