When you think of a fairytale wedding in Orange County, what often comes to mind is the breathtaking beaches, the radiant sunsets, and the love that floats as naturally as the ocean breeze. Maria and Eric’s wedding at Laguna Hills Civic Center was the epitome of an Orange County dream, painted with love, joy, and a whole lot of romance. This wedding had it all, and as TNK Photo, we felt privileged to capture these unforgettable moments. In today’s post, we walk you through the magical world that was Maria and Eric’s wedding day.
Before the festivities could officially begin, Maria and Eric chose to take some time with their nearest and dearest to capture those priceless family photos. The smiles were abundant, as were the sentimental moments. This was not just a celebration of two people in love, but also of two families uniting. Framed against the lush backdrop of the Civic Center gardens, every shot was a picture-perfect moment that will be cherished for generations to come.
Ah, the first look! Is there anything more heartwarming than witnessing a groom’s expression as he sees his bride for the first time? Eric’s eyes lit up in a way that could only be described as love meeting destiny. Maria, radiant in her flowing gown, couldn’t contain her excitement either. The first look is a moment that kicks off the lifelong journey together, and for Maria and Eric, it was as if time stood still.
Outdoor Wedding Ceremony
The ceremony itself was set outdoors, where the natural beauty of Orange County could fully partake in the couple’s joy. The Civic Center’s immaculate gardens offered a serene setting for the vows. Under a floral arch, Maria and Eric said “I do,” while the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a golden glow over them—providing the perfect natural filter anyone could ask for.
Couple’s Session on the Beach
What’s an Orange County wedding without a little sand between your toes? Following the ceremony, we headed to the beach for an intimate couple’s session. The playful glances, the carefree laughter, and the waves that seemed to cheer along with their happiness; everything came together to create magical memories captured through our lenses.
The party was far from over! It was time for group photos with the friends who have been there through thick and thin. We chose a spot at the Civic Center that allowed the evening lights to create a vibrant backdrop. This lively group knew how to strike a pose and made our job incredibly easy and fun. The photos encapsulated the communal joy and love that surrounded Maria and Eric on their special day.
Congratulations Maria and Eric!
