Alex + Michael’s Wedding, Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel

Alex and Michael’s Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel wedding was an absolute dream. I am truly lucky to work with so many couples and families that make what I do even more enjoyable- but Alex and her mom Karen hold a super special place in my heart. Their families as a whole, it turns out, are just the BEST people and full of life. Which makes sense that one of our main goals for the day overall was to be sure the party was set up to be a total blast! Of course there were décor choices to be made- which we kept classic and clean per Alex’s taste; all white flowers throughout the ballroom, loads of twinkling candles and glass candelabras, neutral but elegant bridesmaids gowns. But the fun elements were in abundance- a cigar lounge in honor of the Father of the Bride, selfie sticks for all the moments to be captured, a killer band that kept the dance floor packed, and of course, an appearance by the In-N-Out truck (when in California, this is a must). What a joy it was to work with Kelly and Joe (of Kelly Hornberger Photography) who are dear friends of the bride and groom but also amazingly talented Texas-based photographers. So many gorgeous images from the day and below are my absolute favorites- enjoy:)

Can we just talk about Alex’s AMAZING Sassi Holford gown for a second?? I mean, it has pockets!! She fell in love with it the moment she put it on at Mon Amie Bridal salon. And the crown she wore so perfectly- her grandmother and mother both wore it on their wedding days. Sigh….
