Paige + Anthony | Malibu Lakeside Wedding

These two, man. THESE TWO. Anthony and Paige.

We finally had a chance to meet these out-of-towners about a month out from their wedding date, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that Paige straight up ran into our arms to give us the warmest of hugs. What was to be about an hour get-to-know-ya date over coffee turned into a 2.5 hour heart to heart about all things life. We professed our best-friend-love of each other somewhere in between laughing about our most embarrassing life moments and crying about how much we loved our dads. 

Together, these lovebirds invest in the lives around them with a genuine care (the world needs more of these peeps). Anthony and Paige have the uncanny ability to make everyone feel like you're their best friend. It was actually a running joke between the guests on the wedding day... "No, I'm Paige's best friend... no sorry, actually, Anthony is my bestie... oh, that's cute but they're both my best friend... nice try."

Paige said it best in describing what made their wedding day so extra special...

"Honestly the lion's share has been done by my family and by friends of the family. My aunt is our wedding planner, our family friend is doing the decorating, my pastor is doing the ceremony, my hairstylist is a friend from church, my make up artist is the same one who did my make up for prom and graduation, and a dear friend from college found the photographers of our dreams. This is definitely a family affair- and it means so so so much more to me that every single detail of the day was placed and picked lovingly by someone who deeply knows us -- not just from a dreamy Pinterest board."

It comes at absolutely no surprise that a village of family and friends came together to plan, design, and execute Anthony and Paige's dream wedding at Malibou Lake Mountain Club. The love was in the details, in every in between moment, every hand hold, every hug, and every over-the-top-party-your-socks-off dance move!
