Wendy and Orion's Wedding at The Mission Inn

I absolutely love being at the Mission Inn!  Wendy and Orion couldn't have picked a more picturesque setting for their wedding and reception.  The Mission Inn offers so much as a wedding venue: gorgeous architectural backdrops, inspiring views from the rooftop, and an old world ambiance inside the hotel.

I met up with Wendy at Manhattans of Riverside (hair and makeup salon) while she was still getting ready and she looked amazing!

I had planned Wendy and Orion's rendezvous at the Mission Inn's famous rotunda so we can do an intimate photo session with them.  The advantage of this was that we were able to get some truly romantic images of them during their first meeting prior to the ceremony.  During this time they also get the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed moment together before the day's schedule began. 

Second Shooter: Neil Rosales - thank you, you always rock!

Gorgeous place, scenery, couple, and of course gorgeous images.

The one of them dancing looks like they have a halo over their head from that lighting. Soooo cool!
