{ Kay + Brenn | Mission Inn Wedding }

Monday, August 30th, 2010

So many factors go into building the perfect wedding, though I believe that it really all boils down to one thing – the people. Of course, at the very center the bride and groom, but also the loved ones with their toasts, the laughter across tables, the dozens of happy bodies filling up the dance floor… this is what breathes the life into the day and makes it perfect.

Although a picture-perfect venue, serving as the backdrop for all your memories with all those wonderful people, cannot hurt either, and a picture-perfect venue is precisely what the Mission Inn is. Part historic landmark, part hotel, part crazy crazy maze, it is an amalgamation of architectural styles, unique buildings, and ultimate portrait backdrops. Kay & Brenn’s reception was held in the stunning Spanish Art Gallery and after dark, we got to take a few more night portraits around the grounds. Even then, after hours and hours of talking/dancing/laughing/mingling/getting-married, they were as sweet and enthusiastic and in love as ever. It was a beautiful day!

You all know of my weakness for bougainvillea…

{ Linda + Chris | Orange County Wedding }

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

From our very first meeting, Linda described a beautiful clearcut vision for her wedding. She wanted to maintain certain traditions while incorporating a fresh style – bright pops of pink & tangerine, a chic birdcage veil, dapper grey suits for the guys (with matching grey chucks – my fave of the chuck colors!), an awesome live band (and MC/DJ who also happened to be THE most amazing Michael-Buble-ish vocalist.)

With no detail left unturned, Linda & Chris could really kick back and enjoy the day, which flowed beautifully, especially with Shana of East West Event Productions on hand to coordinate. We’re so excited we could be there to document their perfect summer wedding!

The lush florals were all designed by the super sweet Cindy of Floral Elements. I’m so in love with that vibrant pink shade of peony in Linda’s bouquet…

How cute are the flowergirls in their sherbet-colored outfits?

After the ceremony we headed to UCI for portraits. I always love shooting against natural & green backdrops and adored this grove of trees!
