January 27, 2016
Enjoy this fun-filled Ritz Carlton Dana Point Wedding featuring Lauren & David.
Special thanks to Natalie from Swellegant Events for coordinating such a wonderful event!

Flawless Faces Beauty Lounge worked their magic by adding these reflective sparkle strands to Lauren’s hair – creating such a unique element to her look for the day. Her iridescent eyeshadow added a special touch to her makeup look bringing all the attention to her gorgeous eyes.
Lauren decided to play a small prank on David before she came out for her first look so she had her bridesmaid carry this Ariel balloon out to him as a practical joke. Needless to say, David was ecstatic to finally turn to see his beautiful bride soon after.
Wedding Couples Session
With the help of our coordinator Natalie from Swellegant Events and the helpful event coordinators at the Ritz Carlton Dana Point, we were able to shuttle our team, the Bride & Groom, and our wedding party down to Salt Creek Beach to grab a couple memorable portraits and group shots. The easy access to the beach is what makes Ritz Carlton Dana Point such an awesome place to photograph at on a wedding day; offering views and access to the ocean within just a few minutes.
Creating lasting images with our wedding party members is not only one of our favorite parts of a wedding day but also the most memorable. As they say, ’til death do them part!
Keith J. Laverty did a phenomenal job accomplishing simplistic ceremony decor, allowing the backdrop of the beautiful blue ocean to speak for itself. Lauren & David had guests grab these mini beach balls to throw following the ceremony which made for a fun celebration as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife for the very first time.
Prior to the ceremony, David, along with his family & friends, participated in an Indian tradition known as a Baraat. David’s half-Indian heritage inspired this idea, fusing both Lauren & David’s families together on this joyous occasion. This processional is filled with upbeat music and celebration as the Groom makes his way to the altar.
Keith J. Laverty turned the Ritz Carlton Dana Point’s ballroom into a magnificent party under-the-sea! The room was decorated with centerpieces filled with corals & seahorses and gorgeous royal blue aquatic lighting by Visions Entertainment. Keith even created adorable squid and octopus balloon structures to fit the theme!
We had to take advantage of the glorious moon that night as it was peaking through a slew of clouds. We used a fisheye lens in order to capture both the overarching terrace just outside the Ritz Carlton Dana Point ballroom and the beautiful moonlit sky.
