Recently I had the opportunity to assist Gary Coelho Photography on a wedding for one of their sweet couples, Joan and Jason at The Ranch at Laguna.

The Ranch at Laguna Beach is a gorgeous gem of a venue! It’s a hotel and spa that’s tucked in the canyon along PCH between Laguna Beach and Aliso Viejo. The roomy bungalows make for a  great place for the bridal party to get ready and for out of town wedding guests to stay as well.

It was a gorgeous wedding with beautiful scenery and romantic design elements. The Ranch at Laguna Beach has a beautiful ceremony site that overlooks the lush green hillside. The view was breathtaking! Joan’s bridesmaids wore light floral summer dresses and the groomsmen wore cobalt blue suits- a bright spring color combination. After the couple said their vows, the guests showered them with rose petals as they made their way back down the aisle. It was just like a fairytale!

The reception ambiance was so romantic! Long rustic wood reception tables were adorned with soft light pink and white florals created by and warm candlelight. A live band performed all the couple’s favorite songs throughout the night. I will say, there’s something magical about having your first dance to live music.

Scroll down to see some highlights of my favorite moments from the day:
