Venue Spotlight: Arroyo Trabuco

This Saturday I have the privilege of coordinating Andrea + Tom's wedding at Arroyo Trabuco. It's conveniently located in South Orange County in Mission Viejo, at the end of Avery Parkway.

It's serene and peaceful, surrounded by natural beauty. I love venues that have both indoor & outdoor space. There's a beautiful garden for your ceremony, a patio for cocktail hour and a ballroom for dinner and dancing. It's so nice for guests to have a good flow to the evening, only steps away from their next destination.

Great photo ops all around

O'Neills Bar & Grill

Lovely Bride's room

Great the beamed ceiling.

{real wedding} Kari + Eric

June 25th couldn't have been a more perfect day for a wedding at Franciscan Gardens! Every detail was thought of...touches of citrus in the centerpieces, the Italian pizzelle cookies & biscotti made by the Bride's grandmother, the chalkboard accents throughout, the wedding photos of grandparents & parents. Beauty was everywhere & love was in the air!

I love that my job allows me to meet wonderful the very sweet & very talented Kara Layne. She captured their day beautifully!

Gotta love the yellow shoes...

So much emotion was felt throughout the day...

Miss Kari was stunning in her gown!

Ah, love!

The pair really loves life...
you have to smile just being around them.

Everyone loves a candy buffet!

Lovely details...

I love an exit with sparklers! Congrats you two! So glad I could share in your special day.
