Jacquie + Sean’s beautiful Wedgewood Menifee Lakes wedding in May was a fun, gorgeous event featuring two fun, gorgeous people who were surrounded by their family and family who couldn’t wait to celebrate the marriage of this sweet couple!
Wedgewood Menifee Lakes is one Wedgewood property in which I love to photograph weddings. It offers the best in an all-inclusive wedding experience for couples getting married in the Inland Empire. Jemaya and her team are some of the hardest-working people I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from helping couples with their original vision, to hustling on their wedding day to get all the details like floral arrangements, linens, and my favorite, the donut wall! just right. From a photographic perspective, the venue has so much to offer: beautiful landscaping and lots of greenery, the lake, the view of the mountains, and so much lovely outdoor space to get bride and groom and bridal party portraits! It was a pleasure to be part of the team to capture what made Jacquie + Sean’s wedding day special.
As Jacquie started getting ready for the day in the bridal suite at Menifee Lakes, I was able to take out some of her details around the venue and get a few detail shots of her bouquet, her invitation suite, and her shoes, not to mention my favorite detail, the gorgeous ring box!
Jacquie started the day with her bridesmaids at the Menifee Lakes bridal suite. She spent almost the entire time there enjoying her friends and family. She has the best laugh! :)
Teal is one of my favorite colors, and I just loved these teal bridesmaids dresses! Not to mention they looked FAB-U-LOUS any time the wind blew!
Sean and his groomsmen also managed to look pretty studly just prior to the ceremony – I love Sean’s suspenders!
The wedding ceremony was held outside in the courtyard at Wedgewood Menifee Lakes. I just loved the way Jacquie and Sean looked at each other the entire ceremony!Sean’s could not have been happier to finally see his bride!
Sean Jr. assisted his parents in a sand-pouring tradition during the ceremony. Always some of my very favorite images – the bride and groom walking down the aisle, as husband and wife! :)
After the bridal party pictures, we had some time with just Jacquie and Sean. These two are ridiculously photogenic! We took a few photos in the gorgeous ceremony space. The greenery and trees make for a beautiful backdrop of the newlyweds!
The fountain is always a favorite for bride and groom portraits – I just love the way these two look at each other!After the portraits, we went right into the reception. Sean and Jacquie had their first dance right away – and Sean Jr. didn’t want to be left out! He was dancing with them at least half the song :)It had been almost an entirely overcast day, but we were lucky in that we started to get some beautiful sunset light later in the evening! I brought Jacquie and Sean out on to the Menifee Lakes golf course one more time to take advantage of the gorgeous light!Lots of great moments in the reception, including some fun toasts and mother/daughter and mother/son dances!
Congratulations, Sean + Jacquie!
