Omni La Costa Gatsby Wedding | Mike & Kristi

Omni La Costa Gatsby Wedding

Inspired by the Great Gatsby theme, Kristi and Mike chose the Omni La Costa for their wedding venue.

Luxury Wedding…..Black and Gold Details …. Outdoor Ceremony…..Ballroom Reception

The couple chose the hotel’s Orchid Terrace for the site of their wedding ceremony.  During the golden hour the bride and her father walked down the aisle in the presence of 150 of their close friends and family.  The couple exchanged vows in a glittering, over the top ceremony decor set off by the beautiful resort scenery.  The 1920s-themed reception featured multiple chandeliers, sequins and golds, sparkly crystals, rich black feathers, shiny black candelabras, and orchids, orchids, orchids!  Kristi knew exactly what she was looking for and with the help of her coordinator Gina and Blush Botanicals, the space was transformed for an extravagant celebration.  From the gourmet food station offerings, to the over the top entertainment setup, opulent decor and top shelf bar – no expense was spared to truly bring the Great Gatsby Wedding Theme to life for their guests.

Mission San Juan Capistrano | Casino San Clemente | Ryan + MaryAnn’s Wedding

Mission San Juan Capistrano | Casino San Clemente Wedding

It’s always a pleasure to capture a wedding in one of our favorite cities – beautiful San Clemente.  Below are a few photographs from Ryan and MaryAnn’s Casino San Clemente wedding.  The couple had a vision to be surrounded by the history and stunning architecture of Mission San Juan Capistrano for their first look and couple portraits.  The bells adorning the mission were a perfect backdrop for the moment Ryan and MaryAnn saw each other for the first time.  We enjoyed seeing so many familiar faces among the guests and bridal party as we captured a wedding for one of the groomsmen last year and are looking forward to covering one of the bridesmaid’s wedding next month.  Click here to see more San Clemente Weddings.

Temecula CA Engagement Session Photography | Marshawn & Jemika

Temecula CA Engagement Session Photography

As Jemika and Marshawn plan the details of their dream wedding, the next step was to capture their love and lifestyle during this special stage in their lives.  What attracted the fashion forward to our portfolio was the fresh, lively, up to date quality of the styling and post production of our imagery.

The engaged couple envisioned a shoot where they could be themselves surrounded by the things they love.  The outfits they chose complimented one another and reflected their typical ‘out on a date’ look.

Not wanting the fun to end Jemika and Marshawn treated us at our favorite spot for drinks, so glad we got to experience the way Marshawn drinks his Whiskey – it has to be just right we get it.

Twin Oaks Estate San Marcos CA | Nash & Breeana’s Wedding

Twin Oaks Estate San Marcos CA | Nash & Breeana’s Wedding

Bree and Nash, (who have the coolest set of first and last names ever) are the classic, cheesy tale of high school sweethearts who have just about been attached at the hip for the last 11 years.  Nash is quite the strong and silent type who works as a paramedic, whereas Bree is the more outgoing and slightly stranger character who writes for a living.  The couple love the vintage/old Hollywood style and wanted to incorporate that impression into their wedding at Twin Oaks Garden Estate, as well as a specific “Storybook” theme, especially because the bride is also a self-proclaimed nerd who enjoys a good read

Serendipity Gardens Wedding – Briar & BreeAnna – Oak Glen, CA

Serendipity Gardens Wedding – Oak Glen

BreeAnna’s smile light’s up the whole place, it’s contagious.  And what do I remember from the men?  Lot’s of tears, beers and beards ha ha!  Upon arrival we were informed by the Father of the Bride that we wouldn’t be capturing any crying, due to the fact that there would be none of that.  Was this a challenge!?  Like if I tell them not to capture it, maybe they’ll be super sure to catch those sentimental reactions.  Yeah so that happened and it was awesome to see how this loving family is so connected with each other, truly inspirational.

We had been anticipating the day after hearing so much buzz about this gorgeous wedding venue Serendipity Gardens in San Bernardino, CA.  There are so many picturesque opportunities at this rustic venue, from the spacious barn to the pond, twinkle lights and gorgeously landscaped surroundings.

Thanks to one of the cutest couples ever for having us, love you guys!

Grand Del Mar Wedding – Chris & Taryn

Grand Del Mar Wedding – Chris & Taryn

Congratulations to our new neighbors Chris and Taryn, who just moved from Los Angeles to just a few minutes away from us.  A move and planning a wedding must have been a breeze for this couple, whenever we spoke prior to the wedding the couple was relaxed and excited for the big day!  When Taryn told us during the initial consult that her daddy was a wedding planner and was scheming to make his baby girl’s wedding what he’d always dreamed about, we were eagerly anticipating how it would all come together.  Chris and Taryn’s wedding was truly dream like at the decadent Grand Del Mar Hotel in Del Mar, CA.  It seems that every time we turned around Taryn and Chris had fresh happy tears, it’s and inspiration to see two people so in love.  Deshun and I half-way joke about renewing our vows every weekend, hearing couples affirm their heart felt vows strengthens ours.  Love you guys!
