Mission Inn Wedding Photographer/ Destination Wedding Photographer/Ashley and Alberto from Spain!

I am so happy to be blogging this gorgeous wedding from the Historic Mission Inn. I am truly blessed to share in such amazing people's lives. Today, as a dear friend of mine fights for her life, I am reminded how fragile life is and moments such as this beautiful wedding need to be celebrated and honored. I am so happy to be given such a talent to document the snapshots that make up life.

The details:
Location:Historic Mission Inn
3649 Mission Inn Avenue
Riverside, Ca 92502

Ashley and Alberto wanted to celebrate their wedding reception at a beautiful destination. They were married in Spain with all of their family and friends from Spain so they chose the Mission Inn to have their wedding reception with their California family and friends and many friends from all over the country, Canada and Spain were able to be a part of the celebration!

It was a windy day in Riverside, but we just went with the flow and chose the perfect locations at the Mission Inn to escape the wind. These wedding photos of Ashley and Alberto are truly break taking and I am so proud to have been a part of this very special wedding celebration!

Ashley and Alberto met in Spain while Ashley was studying abroad. Their love story is so romantic and after many years, this charming couple's dream destination wedding came true.

The beautiful bride Ashley.

The handsome Groom Alberto.

Such a beautiful couple, inside and out.

The Mission Inn is a magical place to take pictures. So many elements of architecture. It truly is a treat to photograph at this location.

This next series of photographs just show off the magical beauty of the Mission Inn.

This is one of my favorite photos from the wedding.

Can you believe the moon was out and shining in these photographs during the day! What an amazing day!

Friends from Spain and Cali!

This Black and White photo is one of my favorite pictures of the day that my awesome husband Mark captured. So photojournalistic and fun!

My vogue shot of the evening. My absolute favorite photo from this spectacular Mission Inn Wedding.

Thank you Ashley and Alberto for having me share in your wedding celebration. I wish you a world of happiness and lifetime of love. xo
