Pelican Hill Wedding : Rodhelen + David


They share a quiet kind of love. The type of love that others can see and feel, but is never put on display like a relic in a museum. Rodhelen and David complete each others’ sentences and quietly laugh at inside jokes…and occasionally use pet names in public. Their friends and family laud their devotion, care, and attention to others, all things that manage to find their way back to each other.

Last Monday, on a glorious Labor Day, Rodhelen and David promised their lives to each other. The wedding overlooked a stunning day in Newport Beach and the sun kissed the couple as they floated down the aisle. It was a perfect day for two people who deserved nothing else.

Rodhelen and David, thank you for being so sweet, kind, and thoughtful. It was a joy to document your wedding day and I know your lives are destined for only great(er) things…and merely because you deserve every last bit of it. Enjoy your time in Italy…and, Rodhelen, please buy a pair of heels we’d both swoon over! Much Love and Appreciation… j*

The day started at the bridal suite at Pelican Hill Resort…and nothing’s better than beginning with a pair of Christian Dior heels and Oscar De La Renta wedding dress…

Many thanks to Nisie of Enchanted Florist for the stunning bouquet…

Rodhelen and David opted to see each other before the ceremony and I couldn’t have been happier for this amazing moment between the two of them…

Because they saw each other before the wedding, we had plenty of time to plan for pictures and roam every inch of Pelican Hill Resort

It was an absolutely stunning night for a wedding and the views from Pelican Hill was the cherry on the wedding cake!
