Laura + Adam's Wedding by Lauren Dinh

Laura and Adam’s wedding was a relaxing day by the beach with close family and friends. Their day started off at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa suiting up to look their best! We then headed out to their gorgeous wedding venue at Salt Creek Beach, tucked away on the coast of the Pacific Ocean in Dana Point, California. Salt Creek Beach is actually part of the OC Beach State Park and can be accessed on foot after parking at the top of the hill or in their case a golf cart shuttle! This location features a ceremony held on the sand with staircase leading directly up to a grass park for a sweet reception. Their entire wedding was practically DIY with everyone coming together to create something magical. Even without alcohol, it was the liveliest wedding event I’ve seen in a long time. Everyone danced the night away celebrating these two to one of the most nostalgic playlists I’ve heard in a while!

The DeGuzman's by Lauren Dinh

We were set to photograph at the Anaheim Packing house, a hip and modern indoor location that houses multiple food vendors! The day started off with all sorts of stress! Not only was it the season’s first rain fall but we didn’t have a permit to photograph inside the venue! Neither the less, the DeGuzmans pushed forward and I’m so glad we did! The security guard surprisingly let us find shelter inside the building so we snuck some photographs discreetly! Of course at some point, he caught on and kicked us out but we still managed to come for what we wanted! I just love when my clients are a little rebellious and just go for it because you never know what you might get! To be honest, I was pretty scared the whole time but boy was it worth it!
