Beautiful Oceanside Wedding Destination

Image

As a Southern California wedding photographer it’s always an adventure when you come across a place so serine, beautiful and relaxing and you didn’t even know it was there. That’s how it was for my wife and I when we passed South Orange County and entered the Oceanside Marina and found a gem of a hotel there, The Oceanside Marina Suites. Some of the amenities were easy parking, spacious rooms, a great view and lots of close restaurants within walking distance.

We were there to photograph the wedding of Karen & Eric, a very fun couple who was referred to us by a former bridal client of mine. The day started out in Karen’s room with hair, makeup and other preparations. I love these scene setter shots that help to tell the story of their wedding day.

Eric and Karen were both great to work with. They were both so casual and relaxed; it was hard not to be in such a soothing environment. The colors they picked were perfect ans complemented their day.

The wedding ceremony was held at the point of the hotel in a picturesque gazebo. With blue skies, a cool breeze and surrounded by your closest friends and family how could it not be the picture perfect day?

We used an open balcony to shoot a group photo of all the guests as a keepsake for the wedding couple. As we moved into the group portrait session there was a very smooth transition for family and friends to the reception.

The hotel had many great photo opportunities the first one I noticed was the beautiful staircase in the lobby. The wood railings went perfect with the warm Tuscan colors on the walls.

As we made our way to the beach for our sunset session the light was perfect. Eric and Karen were very flexible with my posing requests even when I asked them to sit on the sand.

As the sun set on this gorgeous scene I was so satisfied with the results of our day. We had helped another couple preserve the memories of their wedding day through our photography and artistic skill. It is so rewarding to help create images of fun and laughter on the happiest day of people’s lives.

    Wow! Gary, we are truly touched that you had such a great experience with us that you wrote the blog about it! We too had a wonderful experience with you and Linda, it was easy and comfortable to work with you both, since neither of us like having our picture taken. I can not express how much gratitude we have for you. You are true professionals in your field and have wonderful skill at creating exactly what I dreamed of for my wedding photography.
