If you aren't the type of person that believes in two people being perfect for each other, then you haven't met Kelsea and Jacob. It was such an honor getting to meet these two and take their engagement photos in San Juan Capistrano last year. They celebrated their 9 year anniversary at that shoot with some red roses and a glass of champagne watching the sunset. Doesn't get much better than that. With how fun and in love they were, I knew their wedding was going to be special.
The ceremony was at a beautiful Catholic Church in Dana Point, St. Edward. We started with a first look on the trail behind the church overlooking the ocean and harbor in Dana Point. It's always such a touching an intimate moment to get to spend that time with your significant other and just enjoy that moment alone. The ceremony was a beautiful union of two people becoming one in their love. Kelsea and Jacob walked out of the church to a surprise of a classic car waiting to cart them off to Casa Romanitca in San Clemente. I've been to Casa Romantica before for Hurley parties, but have never been there for a wedding. I was blown away at the beauty in the details that Kelsea and Jacob put together for their special day. The sunset was spectacular and went perfectly in to a night of dancing. They left in a tunnel of bubbles from their friends with Krispy Kreme donut party favors waiting for them upon exit. Can't think of a better end to an incredible night. So grateful to have such beautiful couples who are so truly in love.
