Melrose Engagement Session – Hollywood
We were very excited to photograph Alice and Rich’s Melrose engagement session in Los Angeles. They love Melrose so they wanted to start their engagement session at their favorite restaurant, Spartina. The couple got special permission from the owner to have their Melrose engagement session early, before they opened. The restaurant was so accommodating and even poured them a glass of wine! Next, we headed over to their apartment at The Highland for some engagement photos around their building and rooftop (unbelievable views of Hollywood!) Afterwards, we went to their next favorite place- Target! Come to find out, they love Target. They love it so much, that they wanted a few photos there!
We can’t wait to celebrate with them during their wedding at the Surf and Sand Resort!
Spartina Italian Restaurant on Melrose
Spartina was created by Stephen Kalt, who has been an executive chef for well know restaurants like Corsa Cucina (Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas) Caulfield’s (Beverly Hills) and Fornelletto (Borgata Hotel, Atlantic City). He originally opened Spartina in NYC back in 1993. In 2015, Kalt jumped back into the restaurant owner/chef position and reopened Spartina on Melrose Ave. The restaurant can seat up to 100 and the dining room is open to the kitchen. The patio sits at the front of the building on Melrose.
