Here are my 51 Best La Valencia Wedding Photographs of Kelsey and Kevin. I don't think we could of got a bad photo of this fun and very, "in love" couple!
The photos started with my 2nd Shooter, Kristin (not an assistant but a 2nd first shooter) splitting up. Kristin with the girls to get all the details, candids, and getting into the dress shots. I like to use a women 2nd shooter because I feel it's more natural for the women getting ready and gives a good balance to the day's creativity.
And me with the guys. To make sure the guys and girls did not see each other, I decided to shoot the guys pre ceremony formals in the front of the hotel and even crossed the street to get some bonus shots.
The La Valencia Hotel is spectacular La Jolla wedding venue.
Up above the La Jolla Cove cliffs along the scenic Pacific Ocean, La Valencia is one of the most romantic settings for California weddings, celebrations and social events. One of SoCal's most beautiful coastlines, this is an iconic destination with its classic glamour and coastal charm from the palm lined garden to the ballroom and terrace.
The ceremony took place on the garden terrace and with the mastery planning and design from Amy,of First Comes Love Wedding Planning and Concepts Event Design. And can't forget the amazing flowers of Flora Glamor. The ceremony was full and love and joy and after we kept all family members there and did the group family formals.
And now for my favorite part of a wedding photography, we headed down to Ellen Browning Scripps Park walking distance, right below the hotel. Here we did some shots on the grass and down by the water.
We headed back to the hotel and had a couple extra minutes to spare so we did some shots in the hotel.
For the reception it was held at the Veranda Ballroom and wow what a party it was! Thanks to Pacific Entertainment for keeping the party going strong!
Kelsey and Kevin, thank you so much for letting us be part of your wedding day and I know these meaningful photos will be cherished for years to come!
