Romantic Summer Wedding | Saddle Peak Lodge

Romantic Summer Wedding | Saddle Peak Lodge

 

 

A romantic summer wedding story with soft gold accents and a beautiful wedding cake that shimmered in the sunlight!  An overall soft feminine style that looked especially beautiful in contrast to the authentic rustic setting of Saddle Peak Lodge.

 

Ryan and Julia adore being in nature. When they saw the lodge they fell in love with the rustic charm and breathtaking mountain views. Their decision was made. Equally important to them was creating an event that was elegantly simple, they wanted to look back on their wedding day memories as fun and carefree. With Shannon from Affairs of The Heart to guide them, this is just how the day unfolded. So lovely.

Standing before a frame worthy view of the Santa Monica Mountains, the couple exchanged their wedding vows.

Orange County Courthouse Civil Wedding Ceremony

Courthouse weddings are intimate and fun and this one, oh so chic!  They are a truly magical way to say “I do.”

When we spoke with Jessica and Adam about their civil ceremony plans, they shared some of their favorite things with us. Jessica mentioned that Adam is a gourmet coffee connoisseur and that she loved a good cup of tea. So naturally we started the day and their photo story at the Gypsy Den, an eclectic neighborhood coffee shop with the best tea and coffee around! After enjoying the eye opening libations and a stroll in the courtyard, it was time to get married! We met again at the Old Orange County Courthouse where the couple was greeted by family. After a quick and fun swearing-in ceremony, everyone gathered upstairs for the ceremony which was short, sweet, and filled with laughs and love. With such a genuine and stylish couple, photographing this special day was so much fun! Her single hydrangea bloom, his yellow Mini Cooper, and the way they laughed together are just a few of our favorite things from this orange county courthouse civil wedding ceremony. What a truly perfect day! Congratulations Jessica & Adam!

If you’re thinking of having a civil marriage ceremony we highly suggest the landmark Old Orange County Courthouse. Restored to look much as it had at the turn of the last century this courthouse is the perfect place to hold a small ceremony.

And we just have to mention Garett, our waiter at the Gypsy Den. His charm and goodwill added immeasurably to our perfect day experience. Thank you, Garett! We’re sending everyone we know your way!
