Ritz Carlton Wedding Laguna Niguel

I try to not reveal too much when I do sneak peek blog posts because I want my clients to be surprised when they finally see all their images.  It was really difficult to choose just a few images of Chris and Meredith’s wedding for their sneak peek, so here’s bloggy #2 of their wedding :)  This gorgeous couple made it official last September at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel in a sunny seaside ceremony (try saying that 5 times fast!)  Meredith wore a dazzling (and heavy) Justin Alexander wedding gown.  You can probably tell I was a little obsessed by how many photos I took of the gown by itself…

This image is appearing in my next batch of postcard mailers.

I wanted to get “just a few more shots” before leaving for the ceremony at the Ritz Carlton, and boy am I glad I did!Huntington Beach family photographer

I just adore a wedding gown with buttons up the back.  It’s kind of old fashioned in a way, but totally romantic and bridal feeling :) Orange County wedding photographer

The coolest (and most comfortable) wedding day transportation EVER!  Thanks Big Woody Tours!  The top image was taken by me, the bottom by my 2nd photographer.  It’s great to have the same image taken from 2 different prospectives, with different lenses, in the same amount of time.Laguna Beach wedding venue

    Hi Robyn,
    The florist was Petals by Candy (I googled that name & I’m assuming this is her website: http://petalsbycandy.com/). She also did the flowers for Meredith’s sister’s wedding. I’ll ask Meredith about the dresses & let you know. Thank you for leaving a comment!

    Thank you all for the compliments!! Definitely BEST time of my life (hence the crazy fit-pumping photo…haha). However, I must admit, I had a phenomenal make-up artist and an even more phenomenal photographer. Kuddos to Carly, 100%:)
