What an incredible way to start 2010! I was fortunate to photograph a gorgeous wedding at the Historic Mission Inn in Riverside. Ashlee and Cody are the sweetest couple. I have known Ashlee and her family for over 14 years and I am honored that I got to be their wedding photographer. The Mission Inn is such an amazing wedding venue. The architecture and Spanish- Colonial Courtyard makes for truly breathtaking wedding photos. Here is a peak into this wonderful couple's wedding.
The Mission Inn has so many nooks and crannies to photograph in. I absolutely adore working at this wedding venue.
The bridesmaids were all so much fun to work with. I was so surprised to see one of my good friend's daughters as one of the bridesmaids. Brynn-(second from the left) you looked beautiful too and it was fun to spend time with you!
The handsome groom Cody. What a sweet guy! I hope my daughter finds someone as special as Cody. He is so sweet, polite, God-loving and kind. What a catch Ashlee!!!
A bit of history about the Mission Inn Chapel. The St. Francis of Assisi Chapel is embellished with priceless treasures from around the world. Precious Tiffany stained glass panels, which Mr. Miller acquired directly from Louis Comfort Tiffany, magnificently accent the grand walls of the chapel. The 18-karat-gold leafed Raya’s altar dates back to the mid-eighteenth century and was commissioned for a family home in Guanajuato, Mexico. Gleaming with gold and meticulously gilded, allow this altar to make your wedding glow.
Ashlee and Cody were so playful and fun in their wedding photographs. I love when couples are just free and have fun.
The beautiful florals were designed by the talented Heather from Cupid's Arrow Weddings. I love working with Heather because she makes my clients so happy!
Fredo, Ashlee's brother, gave his sister a goodbye hug during the honeymoon dance. They love each other so much. There was not a dry eye in the house.
Here is Brynn again, she caught the bouquet... Do you think she may be next? I have to admit her boyfriend Kevin is a sweetheart and they are a great couple.
