There are so many beautiful settings and hidden gem locations in California for weddings, and I love discovering them with each and every new bride we work with – especially our local Southern California brides! While a venue often helps guide a bride’s dress decision, there are certainly no rules. And I love seeing our brides photographed against such a diverse array of backdrops. Case in point: this gorgeous collection of images from stunning bride Marcela, in her Lauren Elaine “Aurelia” gown, at Crestmore Manor in Southern California. Mixing timeless elegance (venue!) with modern romance (gown!), and a mix of both indoor and outdoor settings -make for one gorgeous affair! Captured by photographer Joey Reger.
