From Alexandra Wallace

Will and Sam tied the knot at the historical Carondelet House in Los Angeles. (Hint: You might recognize it from the beginning of Maroon 5's 'Sugar' music video) Sam made it clear to me from the get-go - no 'shoes on a couch' photos! She wanted moments captured between her and Will, but to skip the usual 'wedding standards'. So, we listened! 

We started off with a quiet first look in the courtyard, where the couple quietly read letters they had written to each other. The ceremony was cozy, intimate, and had readings from family members and friends. And, we managed to slip away for a few rooftop laughs and photos. Oh, and the Los Angeles Fire Department was called when a fire alarm accidentally went off - whoops! So they hung out for a little bit of the party.
