Family-Friendly Wedding at Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kathryn and Rob on a family friendly destination wedding. Living in Chicago, the couple wanted to bring their 5 children to Southern California for an intimate wedding ceremony in front of close family and friends. Their request was to make the event child-friendly and “non-weddingy”. The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel was the perfect venue for a combination family vacation and wedding ceremony. We were blessed with a gorgeous autumn day that showcased the sweeping ocean views.a032-detailsc105-ceremonyThe flowers, by Isari Flower Studio, were colorful and bright and featured elements true to our California themed wedding with sea shells, coral and sea stars. a040-detailsa042-detailsThe couple’s children were adorable and served as flower girls and ring bearers. The girls carried candy pomanders made from Dum-Dum lollipops, while the boys wore pinwheel boutonnieres with their own candy centers.a020-details  c018-ceremony  b029-pre-weddingd065-portraits Venue: Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel / Flowers: Isari Flower Studio / Officiant: Dale Gottschalk / Entertainment/DJ: San Diego DJ & Video / Photography: Ian Grant Photography / Wedding Coordination: Stephanie Rose Events
