From the moment of our first meeting, I knew I wanted this wedding. Casa Romantica is one of my favorite venues in all of Orange County, and so when Emily and Wey decided to book the studio to document their wedding, I was jumping up and down with excitement. Not only because I knew I’d be shooting at a beautiful venue, I’d also be photographing a gorgeous couple. Emily and Wey hadn’t been professionally photographed before their engagement session, and I’m proud to say, they’ve received offers to model from that day on. Well if you’re as pretty as these two, those offers would come eventually anyway :)

It was cloudy pretty much all day in Southern California on their wedding day, it even rained a little just minutes before the Ceremony began, so it wasn’t overly bright and one can admire the San Clemente pier just off the coast. The mood was complimented by the bridesmaids’ gray silk chiffon gowns, and the pink, plum, and green arrangements of orchids, tulips, calla lilies, eucalyptus and succulents. With all these prettiness, I can say this has become one of my favorite weddings this year and I am so happy to have been part of this elegant affair!
