I recently had the privilege of working alongside some of Orange County’s best wedding vendors for a wedding inspiration shoot at the La Ventura Event Center in San Clemente. This hidden gem is a gorgeous spot for hosting a wedding or event. It’s located just a few blocks from the beach (which is fantastic for those golden sunset photos!) and has some super cute photo spots onsite as well.

Aimee Takumi of Confetti Skies expertly coordinated and designed our shoot along with the help of the ultra-talented Naomi of Beautiful Savage Flowers. Together they created a cocktail and reception style that featured regal shades of purple, lavender and red florals, luxe velvet linens along with cozy furniture and decor to frame the venue’s fireplace.

This shoot was a dream to photograph and what’s even more exciting was seeing it published on one of my favorite wedding planning blogs – The Every Last Detail. You can check out our featured shoot here!

In addition, The Every Last Detail has started a new series that I think will be so helpful to couples as they are planning their special day. The new series is entitled  “What Does That Wedding Cost?” and gives a break down of different wedding styles, what to expect for the costs involved and alternative options depending upon your guest list, budget, etc. Click here to check out our feature on the What Does That Wedding Cost series!
