Amber and Paul’s Wedding in Newport Coast | Part I

“Pick this one!”

“Oh! And pick this one too!”

“Aw – we can’t leave this shot out, I love this one!”

What you see above is the VERY condensed version of Erin and I in the office today as we’re going through Amber and Paul’s wedding. Held at the breathtaking Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Coast, it was beyond gorgeous in every way. So in the interest of professional and marital bliss, we have opted to split our favorite images up into two blog posts. We are pretty sure you won’t mind as we’re betting you won’t be able to get enough of these two either! A huge thanks needs to go out right away to Kathy Nosek and her assistant Nita from A Divine-Occasion for orchestrating an amazing day; such a pleasure to work with them both. We hope you enjoy and don’t forget to click and vote for your favorite images!
