Recently we shot this intimate wedding of Brian and Mandy at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach. We were so excited to share their day with them at this gorgeous location! Our bride, Mandy, is from England. From the moment I spoke with her on the phone, I was drawn to her English accent and the excitement in her voice. Shortly after, we met Brian and Mandy and instantly clicked with them. As they sat across from us in our first meeting, Mandy told us all about how she came to America and settled in a place in Laguna Niguel. She used to visit the Montage Park and beach area just to walk around or sit and thought what a great place this would be to get married. Later she met Brian and that dream wedding on the lawn at the Montage had become a reality.
Many of you may know that the Montage Resort sits on the property in Laguna Beach that used be a luxury mobile home park. My family visited there for many summers as I grew up and it was always a special spot for us. When we were approached to do this wedding for Brian and Mandy it made me realize that life really does come full circle. You find yourself in a place at one moment in time and somehow you make your way back there without even trying. As a child, I played on that beach and now I have gone back as a grown woman with the man I love and a profession that we are truly passionate about. Both Mandy and I had come full circle, life is amazing and here we have some fabulous moments of this wonderful couple on their special day. Congratulations to Brian and Mandy, we thank you for sharing this gorgeous day with us. All the best to you both! J+D
The two shared their vows on the lawn just outside the Studio Restaurant and had a fabulous dinner reception to follow there as well.

After the I-do’s we went down to the beach before the sun set where we took a few casual shots of the wedding party. The two then took a little romantic time to just walk and be a couple, we enjoyed their moments immensely.
A beautiful view for a beautiful love!
