Shooting at Occasions is the best! Everything goes so smoothly … Dayna is the utmost professional, the picture of calm, and always has everything under control. The setting is unparalleled, overlooking the beautiful beach of Laguna. There are several hotels within a few blocks to choose from to get ready. Laurie and Thomas chose Pacific Edge. Laurie did her own hair and makeup and looked stunning!!! What a gorgeous girl. And we loved Thomas’ twinkling eyes. He’s one happy guy.
So … the story is, Thomas decided it was time to get serious about finding a wife. He wrote a detailed list with the qualities and characteristics he wanted to find in a woman. It was so specific that he listed “kindergarten teacher.” When he met Laurie, he was immediately smitten. No surprise there! As they talked, he went out on a limb and said “You’re a kindergarten teacher.” She was shocked, to say the least, and then told him he was only a little off … she actually teaches second grade.
They fell in love, and well, the rest is history. I’m so glad I got to share their special day.
By the way, what I’m doing with images these days is finding a signature ‘look’ for each wedding. You’ll see that all of the following have a similar ‘feeling’ about them.
See what I mean about Laurie?
Note the “I do” on the bottom of her shoes.
The wall color in the Pacific Edge guest rooms are the perfect turquoise to set the getting ready series of photos.
The perfect bridal portrait. I loved the pink flowers … don’t know what they are. I’ve never seen them before!
Here comes the bride!
Aren’t the flowers above the arch gorgeous?
Can you see the bubbles?
Always fun to see what the tide is doing!
Perhaps my favorite shot of the day. Or at least in the top few.
Love this spot, just north of Occasions.
