real wedding: rachel & ryan 5/25/13

One of the sweetest couples I have ever worked with, Rachel and Ryan’s wedding was a beautiful celebration of their love!

I was hired to assist Rachel with the ceremony portion of her wedding, taking place at the Noguchi Gardens in Costa Mesa. She was referred to me by a friend of mine, my favorite kind of booking! Personal referrals mean so much to me, they truly drive my business!

I had never been to Noguchi Gardens before, so I was excited to work in a new space. Such a unique site, this outdoor location has both a natural, desert feeling, along with some beautiful water elements and landscaped areas which are great for photos! This was the perfect backdrop for Rachel and Ryan to tie the knot! They incorporated many natural, organic elements into the wedding which fit in perfectly to this ceremony venue!

Since Ryan’s last name is Honeybourne, the couple did an adorable honey ceremony in lieu of a sand ceremony or unity candle. So personal! The ceremony was very sweet and there wasn’t a dry eye in the front row! Such a great beginning to this couples forever!

After the ceremony, the couple headed to Andrei’s Restaurant, where they enjoyed a yummy dinner with their closest friends and family and danced the night away!
