Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Wedding : Jane and Jee

Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Wedding : Jane and Jee


Love wears a myriad of clothing, has a closet full of haute couture jackets made of laughter and shirts woven from the rarest adoration. It’s a closet full of the rarest vintage pieces and enough to make any girl swoon and simultaneously envy. Then there are pieces of Love that are simple, yet classically beautiful. Love that is quiet, private, yet complete with respect and loyalty. Jane and Jee wear such Love. They hold each other in the highest regard, and share a close admiration.

Jane and Jee married at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and pledged to remain by each other’s sides until forever. Close to 350 guests shared in their wedding celebration and the night was filled with performances, dances, and merriment. As the night progressed, Jane’s Vietnamese family collected envelopes at each table and proffered wise words of marital encouragement. On the other side of the ballroom, Jee and Jane toasted with his Korean family, and hugs were freely shared. Throughout the evening, Jane wore four wedding dresses and though she looked radiant in each of them, she looked her best when standing next to Jee. Both wearing the perfect shade of Love.

Jane and Jee, I hope you’re enjoying Paris and reveling in its grandeur! There’s no other perfect place for you to share your first weeks as husband and wife and I know it’ll be perfect. Thank you for the honor of being your wedding photographer and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both! Much Love and Appreciation…j*

Jane wore a pair of vibrant, red Prada heels on her wedding day to start things off right…

In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a Monique Lhuillier wedding dress…

The weather was perfect along the coast and it provided the nicest breezes along the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel property during wedding photos!

JD hung out with Jee and the guys and he had nothing but nice things to say about such a great group of guys…

Jane and Jee opted to see each other before the ceremony and it suited them perfectly! Their moment together was private, quiet, and serene…which is so them! 🙂 JD captured these two photos standing from afar in order to give them a little privacy…it turns out I loved his angle! 🙂

It’s a good thing my clients think I’m funny…

I adored the extra time we had for wedding photos and the day flowed extra smoothly because of it!

JD captured this photo…and I think it’s one of my favs from the day!

The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel had the most spectacular view of the coast during the wedding ceremony and here’s a photo of the recessional, one of my favorite parts of the day!

With many thanks to Kelley Gin of Picture Perfect Event, the entire day went off without a hitch and everything planned perfectly. Kelley and her crew worked tirelessly in designing the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel ballroom for 350 guests!
