Old Ranch Country Club Wedding

Did you ever notice how something you’ve been hoping and praying for seems to finally happen when you least expect it?  Maybe it’s scoring an interview for your dream job, long after you’ve given up on pursuing it.  Maybe you had a certain vision for what your life would look like, and circumstances beyond your control have taken you down a different path.  If, a few years ago, you told Lisa that she would be married to her soul mate, and be the mother to a beautiful little girl, she probably wouldn’t have believed you.  I think you’ll agree that she looks pretty darn content with the way things turned out!  Lisa + Shands shared an intimate wedding ceremony with about 40 of their friends and family at Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach.  Shands was very distraught *sarcasm* when he didn’t see his wedding images featured on my blog yet, so I’ll make this an extra juicy entry, just for you Shands!  Haha!  Please enjoy a little peek into this very special couple’s wedding day :)

The bridal dressing room at Old Ranch Country Club is awesome – lots of space, light, and mirrors.weddings Old Ranch Country Club

I just love the green and orange wedding theme.  Maybe I’m a little biased though, since those were my wedding colors also :)green wedding flowers

Lisa hired the very talented Beauty and the Beach for hair and makeup.  What a romantic updo!green wedding flowers

Great lighting is always the first thing I look for when photographing portraits.  This dressing room had lots of lovely natural light coming in through a big window.green weddings

The “first look.”  Shands sees Lisa for the first time as his bride.  I get tears in my eyes when I look at this image…Old Ranch Country Club wedding photos
