Steffanie and Ruben at Calafia Park

San Clemente, California

After having such a great time doing their engagement session, we couldn't wait to shoot their wedding at Calafia Park. Steffanie and Ruben are easy-going people so we knew it would a fun one. Although the rehearsal was rained out the day before, the skies cleared up and the sun came out for their wedding. It seems to always work out somehow.

Steffanie and her dad had a surprise dance for everyone so be sure to scroll down to the bottom to see it.











Steffanie's "Ruby" had given her the necklace as a present.


Calafia Park has an amazing backdrop with an ocean view.


I love to focus on the bride and groom's faces as they see each other for the first time.






The ring-bearer and flower girl were so adorable!






They are too cute around each other.




The reception site at the golf course.






This was the surprise father and bride dance. They started off dancing normally and then busted out a choreographed hip hop routine. I've seen the bride and groom do this, but this is a first for the bride and father! The dad pulled it off well I might add.


Another great idea was the colored hats that was passed out.


These women were going to slug it out for the bouquet.


The girls caught it at the same time but eventually one let go and gave it to the other.

I am getting married next march and I'm trying to get as much done as soon as possible, I've been searching for the perfect cake topper (Just like my grandparents') when I came across this page, I just wanted to say how beautiful your photography is! I actually teared up for one of the pictures of the bride with her father. (it said she got tears in her eyes wiping his away) I have a photographer already but if I didn't I would want you as our photographer!

PS I didn't notice the location at the top until I recognized Huntington Beach in one of the photos! I though that was kinda funny you were there, my fiancee is from HB!
