Del Mar Wedding By The Ocean – Shanie and James
Del Mar Wedding By The Ocean
This past weekend we photographed a dream wedding. Not only were the ocean views on this private estate breathtaking, but Shanie and James were wonderful. We met with Shanie and James a month before their wedding to walk the property and discuss the details of their wedding. The connection we had with them was instant. James shares a passion for photography and Shanie is the biggest sweetheart. This can be considered a semi-destination wedding for them because they currently live in Miami.
On the morning of the wedding, Shanie got ready at L'Auberge in Del Mar. James spent the morning practicing his epic jumps into the stunning infinity pool on the private estate. We'd have to say that both Shanie and James had very nice and relaxing morning on the day of their wedding. Since the morning was so nice and laid back, this gave both of us the opportunity to get creative with our getting ready portraits. Shanie had a very nice and elegant touch with her pearl details while James stepped it up with his bold wedding attire.
Their first look was beautiful to witness. After the first look, we got to photograph Shanie and James for a couple of hours. Having the flexibility in the timeline for portrait photos was fantastic. We got to really take advantage of the property and create iconic images for them. One of our favorite images is the silhouette photo of the two of them in the iconic maze.
Both their ceremony and reception took place outdoors with incredible ocean views. Shanie did a fantastic job with choosing all of the floral decor. She made both the ceremony and reception pop out with the vibrant florals balanced by the greenery. The sun began to set as people took their seats for dinner time. With the orange and pink color shinning over the water, it was a perfect ending to a perfect day!
