I love a wedding in Laguna Beach. It’s like a little slice of paradise not too far away. And The St. Regis, well, that’s just so much pretty all on one little plot of land. Lisa & Henrik knew it would be the perfect background for their incredible wedding and I’m so happy they brought me on board to document it all!
Lisa & Henrik were married on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean just as the sun was setting. The wind cooperated with us and it was so incredibly gorgeous. For the reception, guests were seated at two long tables covered with greenery, florals and candles. A fire burned behind it all and lights twinkled about their heads.
Henrik is from Sweden, and they brought in some Swedish traditions that I loved so very much! The seating arrangements were very traditional, in that the couple chose where each guest would be sitting. So, husbands and wives & dates were on opposite sides of the gorgeously long tables, inspiring conversation between people who don’t necessarily know each other. There were fourteen speeches peppered in throughout dinner. Fourteen! People from different stages of Lisa & Henriks lives got up to speak a bit about them. It was so interesting to hear bits about each of them from so many different people.
It truly was a day joining two people, their families and their traditions in one of the most beautiful settings California has to offer.
Lisa & Henrik – So many congratulations! I am so thrilled for the two of you and so happy to have documented such an incredible day. It was so lovely and I hope these images can contain all the love and laughter of that day. Mazel Tov!
