Dove Canyon Wedding

Dove Canyon is a beautiful country club tucked in the hills of southern Orange County, and is the place where many couples get married. I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings there on more than a few occasions, and most recently for Russell and Lauries wedding. This young couple, surrounded by their family and closest friends had a beautiful ceremony and a fun reception.

Bella Collina Wedding – Bobby and Lindsey

A week or so before this past Saturday, I met up with Lindsey and Bobby at their wedding venue for a tour. Having an outdoor ceremony, Lindsey wanted to make sure we allowed enough time to get photos before sunset. Jokingly, someone brought up the “What if it rains” scenario. I said, “Don’t worry. I have been shooting weddings six plus years and have never been rained out,” knocking on a wooden wine barrel as I made that statement.

So Saturday when I looked outside and saw the deep shimmer produced only by excessive moisture, I thought, “It’s only mist, a really heavy mist.”

 Arriving for bridal party pictures in San Clemente, it was not misting, but the skies were a deep gray.  This just meant that the beautiful grounds around Bella Collina Towne and Golf Club looked even more amazing.

This was my first time working at this venue and I hope I get to shoot there again soon.  It’s definitely a great spot in Orange County to have your wedding.

 Bobby and Lindsey, thanks for letting us photograph your wedding day. We were so happy to be part of the magic and we wish you all the best.
