The beaches of California have always been special to these two lovers. When they decided it was the right time to become husband and wife, they brought their family and close friends back to those SoCal shores.
Not only did their wedding take place at the beautiful Sunset Beach, the bride, Amanda, put elements of the ocean shores in her decor throughout the day.
Amanda, her groom Jonathan, and their wedding party got dressed and ready at a nearby hotel in Long Beach. Their incredibly cute little boy was more than happy to pose for my camera.
Amanda and Jonathan decided to do a first look before heading to the ceremony location. I love watching the groom's reaction when he turns around and sees how amazing his bride looks.
The sun was beginning to set, so we quickly went to the ceremony location on Sunset Beach.
Their service was sweet and simple, and everyone was aglow with the rays of the fading light.
As the last rays of light peaked out over the horizon, seashells were thrown into the waves.
A simple blessing for the couple's future.
Since the light was going fast, we quickly took family and romantic portraits after.
We then headed to The Grand Long Beach for their reception dinner and dancing.
Congratulations Amanda and Jonathan! Never stop smiling at each other and making each other laugh!
