I'm so excited to share this Heritage Museum of Orange County wedding with you all! When my couple, Gina & John, first contacted me about photographing their special day they were so excited about the venue they'd chosen. I have to admit, I can understand why!
This quaint little venue is truly a hidden gem in Orange County! The property features two historic homes, a beautiful tree-lined ceremony area with a gazebo, and an outdoor courtyard area that makes a great space for cocktail hour and receptions.
The bride, Gina, got ready with her bridesmaids inside the historic Kellogg house. Right inside the entrance of this adorable house is a beautiful parlor area that I immediately fell in love with! I love the way this pink couch just pops against the deep green wallpaper. It was a great spot for photos!
Since our bride and groom were raised in different parts of the country, they decided on a tropical, "East meets West" theme for their wedding. I LOVE the beautiful and unique floral arrangements that Gina and her bridesmaid's carried with them!
The couple had an extra personal touch for their ceremony when a musician friend of theirs performed a few songs as they made their way down the aisle. Later on at the reception the rest of his band joined him to entertain the guests throughout the evening!
This gazebo is so cute! Such a great spot for a wedding ceremony!
After the ceremony the guests made their way over to the fountain courtyard for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while I took photos with the couple and their families.
The reception tables were decorated with beautiful tropical centerpieces and candles. Orange napkins added a tropical pop of color against the white table linens.
Before they headed off to their reception, John and Gina spent some time with me so I could photograph their portraits in the miniature onsite orange grove and in front of the iconic Kellogg House.
