The Villa San Juan Capistrano Wedding

The Villa San Juan Capistrano Wedding

I love Koy & Michael’s gorgeous wedding that I shot with Brett Hickman Photographers at The Villa San Juan Capistrano. So much rustic charm at this venue! It had me swooning for sure! During the 1930s, itinerant workers lived in the house while harvesting walnuts, citrus, and other crops. It has since been extensively renovated but still has a lot of the original construction of the building including the floorboards, wallboard and porch. Walking around the property is quite magical if you enjoy that kind of history which in my opinion is what makes it such a gorgeous wedding venue.

Lexa & Eric: Oak Grove Church

Lexa & Eric said their vows earlier this month at the cutest little white country church that Lexa found in Rickreall, Oregon. Oak Grove Church was established in 1882 and is surrounded by vineyards, hayfields and orchards for miles. The church and gorgeous backdrop made for the perfect place to have a wedding!

These two met while traveling together on a ministry team in college Lexa & Eric became friends and soon that friendship turned into a more serious relationship. Eric proposed to Lexa this last December at Canon Beach and she said YES!

Oregon is where I grew up I was over the moon to be able to go back home to photograph Lexa & Eric’s wedding surrounded by the green trees and beautiful countryside that I will always love. I am so so happy for you two! It was an honor to be part of and document your day and I wish you both the very best as you serve the Lord together in ministry! -Megan

Heidi & Robert: Wedding at The Vintage Rose

The Vintage Rose Wedding

Heidi and Robert got marred at a cute little vintage venue in Orange, CA called The Vintage Rose and we also took pictures at a park not too far from their venue. I went to the same college as Robert and we attended the same church for a while so I’ve known him for several years now.  When he announced his engagement to Heidi I was so happy and excited for the two of them! See their engagement session here. Heidi and Robert met in college and soon began dating. They both can be quiet but you can see the unspoken love they have for one another when you are around them. They just love being with each other.

Congrats Hiedi & Robert! Your love for one another and your families was such an evident aspect throughout your wedding day.  It was truly an honor to be part of and document such a beautiful day. May God bless your marriage and future together beyond what you could ever dream up…Megan

Angelica & Everto: St. Regis Monarch Beach Wedding

I had an amazing time second shooting this wedding with the amazing Trinity Wheeler last year at the St. Regis Monarch Beach. With moving and the busy schedule of life I’m finally getting around to blogging it. Angelica and Everto were such a sweet and beautiful couple. Everto was super sweet on Angelica and his vows expressing what Angelica meant to him were so beautiful. After the ceremony Angelica surprised her new hubby with a Corvette to take pictures with before they headed off to their reception. It was a truly lovely day for these two!
