Jennifer and Scott at the beautiful St. Regis, Monarch Beach

Weddings are about love, life, family and tradition, but sometimes, a gorgeous gown steals the show. That was certainly the case on this day. Jennifer chose an amazing tulle gown by Lazaro in a soft peach, from Mon Amie Bridal Salon. What I loved most was the incredible detailing of the flowers of the waistband. We had as much fun photographing it as Jennifer had wearing it!  Perfectly complimenting her regal gown were her gold Badgley Mischkas, complete with a lucky sixpence, she looked stunning.  Before the ceremony we enjoyed photographing Jen’s side and Scott’s side, their families were great to work with and the best man was especially a lot of fun. He and Joe were kidding around the entire day! Their ceremony took place at the St. Regis Botanical Gardens. We love working here, it’s such a beautiful, intimate setting, tucked just a short distance away from the main hotel. Kevin Covey and his team enhanced the natural beauty of the setting with sparkling crystals hanging from the gazebo. There were many, many elements to this day and Kevin Covey kept everything flowing seamlessly. The guests were given seeds as a wedding favor and a pretty faux bird cage was set up for gift cards. After the ceremony, Joe took the bride and groom around the property for photos while I photographed the reception decor at Club 19. Kevin carried the crystal motif to the dining area with pretty chandeliers that gave the room an extra twinkle. The beautiful florals by Tessa of Lovely Day Floral Studio were done in soft shades of white and green and were offset by gold chiavari chairs and elegant bronze table linens by Fusion Linens. Once the reception got underway, everyone was happy to sit down to a delicious dinner and enjoy dancing through the night with Peter of Vive Entertainment at the helm. Here are some of our favorites from Jennifer and Scott’s special day.

Interesting fact:  the name tulle, comes from Tulle, a city in the southern central region of France. Tulle was well known as a center of lace and silk production in the 18th century, and early tulle netting probably originated in this French city. Tulle netting certainly appeared earlier in Parisian ballet costume than in most other nations, suggesting that tulle netting may have been more readily available there than elsewhere.  I found this on Prepare to Wed.

This majestic cake is from Christopher Garren’s Cakes at the new SOCO design center.  

This has got to be one of my all time favorite toast photos. The expressions are priceless!!

Jennifer was a pro ballerina before becoming a cardiac nurse. She certainly hasn’t lost her grace. What a beautiful dip!

It’s moments like these that remind my why we love doing what we do. Capturing the emotion of a father daughter dance is so precious. A truly unforgettable moment.

We wish Jennifer and Scott many, many years of happiness.
