• WELCOME!

La Venta Inn Wedding | Trisha & Joe

Fair warning – – – this is a big blog post! Why you might ask? Because in the interest of marital bliss here in the Wade household, we just couldn’t decide on which ones to get rid of and not share with you here on the blog. And after looking through these, you’ll see exactly why!

Not even three days after shooting their engagement session in beautiful Palos Verdes, Trisha and Joe became man and wife along the beautiful coast of California. Being from Kansas City, these two chose La Venta Inn as the place where their dream destination wedding would take place. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, it was truly an emotional and joy-filled day!

Erin and I felt so honored to be a part of such an incredible celebration with Trisha and Joe. Their love was contagious, and we left that evening loving what we do even more. Thanks to Kelly and her team over at La Venta, the day could not have been any more perfect. The details were gorgeous, and they truly went above and beyond to ensure that they treasured everyone who made the trip out to CA to celebrate with them.

Trisha and Joe, your warmth, kindness, and generosity made us feel like dear friends right from the start. We’ve said it once and we’ll always say it, you both are so special to us. We hope you enjoy some of our favorite moments from your incredible day.
