Renee and Jimmy’s July wedding at the charming Garden Cottage Bed and Breakfast and Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center located in San Clemente was full of merriment for both the couple and those that surround them. The secluded, French-styled cottage was the perfect place to capture our couple and the wedding party in their classic style.
Jimmy and his friends were in a celebratory and carefree mood, clinking glasses together and getting ready for the emotional day ahead. We captured some great portraits of Jimmy in the property’s lush gardens, waiting with anticipation to see his bride for the first time. Meanwhile, Renee’s mother helped prep the beautiful bride, touching up her makeup and zipping her into her gorgeous dress. Renee’s intricate, vintage jewelry and sparkling engagement ring complimented her ensemble perfectly.
Their ceremony was filled with such genuine emotion that it was hard not to get choked up. It did, however, melt our hearts to see the couples’ son, Major, make his way down the aisle with the ring. Major was just a little over one year old at the time of the wedding, and he is Renee and Jimmy’s pride and joy. There are some great candid images of Major and Grandma sharing in the emotion of the day; their smiles just lit up the day!
With her brother walking her down the aisle, our bride couldn’t have looked happier, even when struggling through her tears of joy. Those are the kind of perfect, candid moments that made their wedding so heartfelt and unique. We absolutely love being storytellers on days like this.
