New Year’s Eve Vibiana Wedding | Kellee and Mike

Welcome to New Years Eve Vibiana wedding of Kellee and Mike in Downtown of Los Angeles! It was one of a kind black-tie a party with an awesome couple and their wonderful guests. When you love each other, like Kellee and Mike, you must throw something big to celebrate your wedding properly. So definitely Vibiana wedding was their biggest party of the year!

When we met on Skype for the first time, we got instantly connected. Kellee and Mike are a fun and loving and generous couple. They both are football fans; love to spend their time with their family and friends. Kellee is a true sweetheart and loving lady. She has a thing for sharks. Guess what her favorite Halloween costume is? Mike is very smart and kind man with a big hard and loves to chill. On occasions, Kellee and Mike travel to foreign countries to experience our beautiful world and enjoy their lovely evenings with a glass of vine. For their honeymoon, they chose the tropical country of Thailand.

Vibiana is a stunning work of Italian Baroque architecture. Nestled in the historic core of Downtown Los Angeles Vibiana is a venue for weddings and performing arts. Built in 1876 it was the City’s first Archdiocese Catholic cathedral. Down the road, after Northridge earthquake in 1994 the structure, it was damaged and decommissioned. Eventually, architects and engineers renovated this magnificent piece of art. Today it is one of the best places for parties in Downtown LA.

Photographing Vibiana wedding of Kelle and Mike was a great, fun and challenging experience. Even though it was raining and dark through the whole day, it did not stop my associate photographer Brian and me being creative. Jumping out of the comfort zone and utilizing off camera lighting we managed to capture the glamor and beauty of Kellee and Mike’s “black tie” Vibiana wedding. But most importantly we had a blast surrounded by awesome people.

Absolutely stunning Kellee in gorgeous Galia Lahav gown.
