Wedding Preparation

Spencer and Kristin’s romantic wedding took place overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point, CA. The rooms inside the Laguna Cliffs Marriott were the perfect place for the bride and groom to get ready. They were surrounded by their closest friends and family, which made the afternoon full of love and laughter. We opened the windows in Kristin’s room to let in the soft, warm  light and crisp ocean breeze. The air was humming with excitement as Kristin and her bridesmaids anticipated the rest of the day.

Wedding Party

We made our way from the Laguna Cliffs Marriott down near the water to take photos of Spenser and his goofy groomsmen. The rocks and crystal blue water made for a unforgettable background.

Such a gorgeous group of girls! We love how the soft pinks and whites in their bouquets complement their flowing, pink dresses.

Wedding Ceremony

The wedding ceremony took place on the lawn of the Laguna Cliffs Marriott. The venue is perched on a cliff just above the sparkling sea, and you can hear the gentle hum of the waves washing on the shore. It was the perfect place for Spencer and Kristen to say their “I do’s.”

Wedding Couples Session

After the ceremony, we made our way to a garden area near the Laguna Cliffs Marriott for a wedding couples session. It was the perfect spot for the newlyweds to share a few special moments together before the reception.
