I found out during Christine’s father’s toast that his adorable couple has been together since 8th grade! Mr. Reedy read a letter that Ryan wrote to her when they were in middle school, professing his love . Ahhhhhhh.
Christine and Ryan got married at beautiful Three Arch Bay in Laguna Beach. The wedding and reception were on the clubhouse lawn, but we had an opportunity to dash down to the sand with the bridal party. Christine had told me she wasn’t a ‘fussy’ bride. But what she WAS was a spectacular one. A simple dress that suited her perfectly, accented by a beautiful cameo brooch that belonged to her grandmother. And when the weather started cooling, she donned a vintage sweater, also belonging to her grandmother.
Christine got ready at the home of a family friend. These shelves in the bedroom lent themselves perfectly to a shoe/bouquet still life. And let’s talk about how cute those shoes are!
And here’s the vintage brooch that Christine put on her gown’s sash. The shell was carried by the ring bearer at the ceremony.
Our beautiful bride.
With bridesmaids before going to the ceremony location.
Of course, the perfect mode of transportation was a golf cart.
Cute beachy details. I’m a big fan of tables other than rounds. Everything looked great.
They look married to me!!!
Christine told me this is one of her favorites shots o’ the day.
A different approach to color. I brought out the blue.
I do love monogrammed cakes. Iva Lee’s did the catering, and the food was delish. Can’t pass up a lemon square.
Good job Ryan! The man in the background with the video camera is the esteemed IMAX filmmaker, environmentalist, and fellow Lagunan Greg MacGillivray. How cool to have a wedding video created by him!
