From We Heart Photography… Romance. That was the theme of this day from beginning to end. It all started with Elizabeth’s stunning dress hanging in the gorgeous library at L’Auberge Del Mar and ended with the happy couple exiting the reception through a tunnel of glowing lanterns. The day was perfectly lit, from the moment Elizabeth and Joe had their dreamy first look in an intimate garden to the couple’s first dance amidst shimmering candle light. Unique flower choices made this event extra special. Elizabeth chose perfect shades of purple, a beautiful choice for this beachy soiree. The couple also incorporated lanterns throughout the day — they lined the aisle at the ceremony, were placed on tables at the reception and were sent home with guests as favors.
The day was perfect in every way, but one moment made it even more special. It was in a quiet moment after Elizabeth and Joe’s first look. I always get emotional during this time, so I was composing myself. But, when their son came to join in the “first look” and saw his parents for the first time on their wedding day, I lost it. It was a perfect moment filled with hugs and kisses — beautiful.
