There’s nothing we love more than a romantic e-sesh set on the gorgeous shores of Laguna Beach, and this beauty from Lane Dittoe hits the mark in more ways than one. From the soft, natural lighting, to the madly-in-love couple…and can we talk about that red dress? Get comfy, and see it all for yourself.

From Lane Dittoe … This romantic laguna beach engagement was on a beautiful California summer day. It’s the first time I met the couple and instantly clicked with them. The lighting was amazing and since I shoot with film the lighting and the beautiful red dress that Sarah wore were absolutely breathtaking.
I love California, that’s a given. The sun, the sand, the ocean — it’s all swoon worthy in my book. So when it comes to booking a West Coast wedding destination? I’d look no further than Laguna Beach’s Surf & Sand Resort. Featuring stunning accommodations, gorgeous views and unique event spaces, Surf & Sand Resort is the perfect spot for a dreamy beachfront wedding.
From the creative and exceptional cuisine at the venue’s on-site restaurant, Splashes to the endless local Laguna Beach activities right out the front door, your guests will be thanking you for saying “I do” in such a fabulous locale. Surf & Sand Resort has gorgeous spaces for every wedding weekend event — from rehearsal dinner to farewell brunch. Oh, I can’t forget to mention the venue’s award-winning pool and luxe 15fiftyfive Lounge that offers up incredible sunset views! My dears, this spot’s got it all.
I don’t know about you all, but my bags are already packed! OH! There’s more — if you book your big day at Surf & Sand Resort by March 31, 2015, you’ll receive an extra night stay for the bride and groom!Offer good for wedding reception of 50 or more guests and/or minimum $6000 spent in catering food and beverage. For new bookings only. Simply mention this post when booking your wedding date. Happy planning! xo
From the beautiful Bride…Daniel and I met a little over seven years ago, two weeks in to our first year of college at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. We met at a mutual friend’s barbecue and we have been inseparable ever since.
Daniel asked me to marry him this past May. We went to the Loews Coronado Bay Resort to celebrate me finishing my second year of law school. We spent the day relaxing by the pool and Daniel had made us reservations at Mistral, the hotel restaurant. He suggested we sit outside and have a glass of wine before dinner, so we went downstairs and sat down overlooking the beautiful water view.
I started to notice something was off when Daniel hands were noticeably shaking, and he took down his glass of wine in one sip! All of the sudden he is on his knee and he asked me to marry him. It was the best moment of our lives and it was perfection.
We will be getting married next september at the La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, California. We are so excited to start our lives together and these engagement photos taken by Krista at One Love Photography were a perfect start to planning our wedding. Krista was a dream to work with and we are so excited to work with her again on our wedding day.
Every time I imagine a picturesque California wedding, the setting is the focal point (behind the bride + groom, of course!); and that is exactly the case at the unforgettable Ranch at Laguna Beach. The idyllic location, with its legendary nature setting, sets the stage for jaw dropping, gorgeous weddings and events.
The Ranch at Laguna Beach offers couples a choice of on-site venues, from the open-air Scout Camp to the lush Putting Green, and the property boasts romantic bridges, incredible views and stunning gardens — hello, photo ops! Perfect as a destination locale, The Ranch puts your guests close to sun, sand, sea and all the rest of the Village’s amazing offerings. With a focus on warm + personalized events, food and beverage menus are custom tailored for each wedding and their Personal Concierge is there to ensure every detail goes off without a hitch!
And get this, the venue even has a Destination Wedding Planning Service which helps couples plan every single element of your wedding weekend — from a barbecue rehearsal dinner to a wedding day golf tournament.
