Any time we get to team up with Chara Swodeck of Open Box Designs to photograph a wedding, magic happens. Chara and her team are just great at putting together elegant and creative ideas for their wedding clients. Combine that with the talents of floral designer Cristina Barragan of Posh Peony in Rancho Cucamonga, and you're in for something special.
Dedra and Will decided on the beautiful Casa Romantica weddding venue in San Clemente, California. Located on the hill that overlooks the beach, Casa Romantica has a gorgeous ocean view. The old Spanish style architecture offers some great spots for photography. One of my favorite places at the venue is the front entrance door, which is in the shape of a keyhole.
This Summer wedding featured a new Orleans Theme, as you will see from the handmade umbrella and second line parade exit. Such a great place and way to celebrate! Congrats Dedra and Will!
Such a fun moment of our Bride Dedra and her flower girl jumping on the bed before the wedding.

Gotta love the pink bridesmaid shoes
Gold plates and forks, along with pink flowers were a great touch on the table settings
The golden hour sunset light gave this shot of their beautiful rings a little pop
Props to Chara on getting these unique Bride and Groom umbrellas. Seconds after the shot the rain starting coming down
New Orleans second line grand exit, legit!
