Mark & Yasmin- Laguna Beach/Cannon’s Dana Point Wedding Photography

Wedding days can be exhausting, both for the couple and for me!  Emotions run high and there’s a lot going on.  I often feel like I’ve been hit by a truck when I wake up the next day.  But Mark & Yasmin’s wedding was different.  When I left, I felt refreshed.  I don’t know if I’ve ever met a couple who are so gracious and kind, thinking about others before themselves, even on “their day”.

I love so much about this wedding.  I love this couple.  I love how they care for each other.  I love how much they love their family and friends and how they are so obviously loved in return.  I love the color palette, the flowers, the bridesmaid dresses and the amazing sweets table!  Beautiful and classy… just like them!

Yasmin’s family, who are from the Philippines, were staying at a beautiful beach house, so that’s where the girls got ready.

They couldn’t have their wedding this close to the beach and not get at least a few photos by the water.
