A Garden Wedding by the Sea | Trinidad, California

This past weekend I had the privilege to go back to the Lost Whale Inn in Trinidad, California to photograph Joe and Marissa’s wedding. I absolutely love shooting here as it has gorgeous landscape and a beautiful view.

Marissa and Joe met while working at Costco where a friendship developed into a beautiful relationship. With around eighty of their friends and family members they said I do! Their details were timeless and her dress was to die for. I loved her long train with delicate lace details.  Her bouquet was stunning and perfect for her. If you want an intimate and well planned wedding I highly recommend the Lost Whale Inn.

Join me on this photographic journey of Joe and Marissa’s day. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you love your blog post you two! Also, check out all of the amazing vendors who helped make this day possible at the bottom of the page!

I started my day off in the bridal suite with Marissa’s details. I love to start my wedding day off like this and also ensure I have plenty of time to do so to style the pieces together so they compliment each other well and flow with the rest of the day.

I then headed over to the groom’s suite and photographed some of his details and him getting ready!

It’s back to Marissa’s suite as she gets into her gown and puts on all the last touches with the help of family.

Marissa is one of those brides who is just effortlessly stunning!

It’s time to say I do!

Before I show you all the magical bride and groom portraits, check out all of these details!

Let’s get romantic…

Some fun!

We ended the night with some silhouettes in the sunset.
