christina marries zack

Another sweet wedding filled with love and beautiful emotions when Christina and Zack said their vows. See complete credits at the end of the post.IMG_0107There’s no secret that most photographers, me included, LOVE taking detail shots. Those special items that make your wedding unique to YOU. Rings, vows, your gown, bouquets, and any family mementos that you might have with you on your big day. We never know what props we’ll pull in from the hotel room. In this case, the Surf & Sand here in Laguna Beach, had some terrific beach themed decor that, combined with Christina’s sparkly belt, were the perfect accompaniment for this image.

The suite at the hotel was gorgeous, and had plenty of room for the bride and the ‘maids and mom to get ready. And Ginger too 🙂
