An elegant wedding with a gorgeous view.
Ruth & Sean are High School Sweethearts who still look at each other with sweet, giddy love in their eyes. They were married on a bright, sunny day in July at Wedgewood at The Retreat Champions Club in Corona.
The bride started her day at The Mission Inn Hotel and Spa in Riverside. Even though I grew up in the Inland Empire, I had never been to The Mission Inn before. It is AMAZING! There are so many hidden spaces and beautiful architectural elements. I seriously could have photographed there all day.
Once Ruth’s hair and makeup were done, we headed over to The Retreat so she could put on her wedding dress and finally see Sean!
Floral Sensations is did such a lovely job on Ruth’s bouquet. The gardenias smelled heavenly!
While we were walking around The Retreat, Ruth mentioned a tunnel that she wanted to take pictures by. I had never taken pictures of a Bride and Groom in a tunnel before and even though we had to watch out for golf carts, it was totally worth it!
Every wedding venue should have a tunnel for pictures.
I loved the soft, romantic look of the ceremony space.
Seeing the ring bearer was so exciting for me! The last time I saw his mom I was photographing her maternity pictures.
Now he’s the most adorable little model on Instagram.
Ruth and Sean, it was so fun photographing your wedding and seeing the way your eyes light up when you look at each other. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your beautiful wedding day.
