Josh & Vanessa | Wedding | Crossline Community Church, Ritz Carlton | Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel

June 30th, 2012 – One of the biggest perks of being a wedding photographer is that I have the opportunity to meet people from all backgrounds and ethnicity. I love listening on how the couple first met, what they thought of each other when they first saw each other, and how the proposal went down. With that being said, I feel so fortunate and honored to have met Josh and Vanessa. They are truly two of the nicest, most genuine people I have come across. Just being around them brings this sense of calmness and happiness, thus why so many family and friends came out to their wedding.

The wedding took place at the beautiful Crossline Community Church in Laguna Hills. The ceremony started off with everyone singing “Amazing Grace” and was followed by a very motivating sermon by the officiant. The reception was filled with heartwarming stories by the maid of honor and the best man. Then they were off to another reception at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Hills hosted by Vanessa’s mom and stepdad. Vanessa and Josh were treated to a banquet room over looking the beach on a nice Saturday afternoon. Vanessa’s mom had asked each guest to give an advice to the newlyweds. I was lucky enough to listen in and basically learned, “Happy Wife = Happy Life” . To show you how much people loved being around Josh and Vanessa, they weren’t done for the day. They had yet another reception to attend to later that evening. When you’re just that lovable, everybody wants to hang out with you and that was especially true on their wedding day.

Congratulations Josh and Vanessa! Hope you had a blast on your honeymoon in the Carribbeans!
