Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Wedding | Cannons Restaurant Wedding
Katie and Mike are officially Mr. and Mrs. after a beautiful (and really really fun) wedding yesterday at Heritage Park in Dana Point. The incredibly sweet and talented Melody Walker was hired to coordinate the event. As always, she pulled it off flawlessly and kept Katie stress-free so she could enjoy her wedding. We were fortunate enough to be able to take pre ceremony photos at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, then after the ceremony we headed down to the beach for a mini photo sess of the bridal party. Guests enjoyed a beautiful view of Dana Point Harbor and perfect weather at Cannons Restaurant, where the reception took place. We were also entertained with several toasts by the couple’s loved ones. Until yesterday I had never seen a wedding toast involving two Cabbage Patch dolls…I think the bride’s brother referred to them as “nunchucks of death” or something hillarious like that. Congrats Katie and Mike! You make a beautiful couple and I am so honored that I was able to document your wedding day!
She looks just a wee bit happy, huh? :-D
The modern day bridal party photo- Blackberries in hand!
After the nunchuck Cabbage Patch doll demonstration…Luckily, no one was hurt.
Good lighting is always the first thing I look for when choosing a spot for photos. Look how beautiful their skin is in this sweet light inside a hallway at the Ritz Carlton!
Katie has always wanted Mike to sing for her (he used to sing back in the day). That wish became a reality when Mike serenaded his new wife in a surprise performance. Not a dry eye in the house (including mine)!
