Swanson Wedding {Part One} | Garden Cottage at the Green
Wedgewood San Clemente, CA

Weddings

After meeting Shannon for the first time, we knew we were up for a grand ‘ole time at their wedding. She actually forewarned us about their upcoming Jack Daniels theme, but assured us it would be done in a classy way. Honestly, we just can’t say enough good things about these two. They’ve made working with them such a joy & a pleasure – so a big THANK YOU in advance!

We shot all the prep content at this lush but quaint venue adorned with all kinds of details. From its garden mazes to its perfectly manicured lawns and robust succulents throughout the property, this is a true gem. It was the perfect setting for the Billy & Shannon, who are a fun,  laid-back couple that like to kick back and enjoy life.  They decided to get ready at The Cottage before the ceremony at the Wedgewood San Clemente because of its beauty and uniqueness. They also didn’t hold back their casual, upbeat natures and celebrated throughout the day by enjoying their favorite spirit, Jack Daniels. And don’t you just love those socks the guys are wearing?!

In between the pomp circumstance, Billy and Shannon showed a more serious side when we took photos of them holding hands and embracing one another on the grounds. On this particular day, the light was perfect and helped produce some wonderful portraits of Billy and Shannon that they will be able to fondly look back in the years to come. We love the lush gardens as a backdrop against the bride’s gown and the groom’s white attire.

Our next stop was the Wedgwood San Clemente for the ceremony and later the reception where the just-married couple and their guests kicked up their heels in grand style. Be sure to stay tuned for more Swanson Wedding goodness!
