Teri & Paul- Laguna Beach Engagement Photos-Surf and Sand Resort

When Teri first contacted me about she and Paul’s wedding, she described them as two fun and energetic 50 year olds. She wasn’t kidding! These two are such a fun and loving couple who are in love like a couple of teenagers! For their first date, they met for drinks at the Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna. Then when Paul proposed, he took her back to the same spot, overlooking the beach, where their kids held up signs that said, “Mom, will you marry our dad?” How sweet is that?

So it seemed only fitting that the Surf & Sand would be the backdrop for Teri & Paul’s engagement photos.

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.
