I’ve always loved this hotel, and even more so since their remodel a few years back. Contrary to the name of the property, it sits atop a hill overlooking Dana Point with magnificent harbor and ocean vistas. And, let’s talk about this couple! They recently relocated from CT, where he worked at Yale School of Medicine in research, to Northern CA where he accepted a position with Stanford.
I first met Wai Sie and Richard when they traveled West to book their venue and talk to other vendors, and was thrilled when I was chosen as their Orange County photographer. They are absolutely charming in every way and the joy they shared with their guests was delightful. It was a destination for all, as Wai Sie’s family and bridal attendants are mostly from England. Of course, our late Summer coastal weather was divine.
