WOW! When it came to choosing photos for this blog post… I couldn’t stop! Morgan + Adrian are the type of couple that you look at and think #relationshipgoals! What struck me the most and made me smile, was in the middle of taking their romantic photos, Morgan said to Adrian “I love having fun with you” and insert collective Awwwwwws for Josh and I!
The day started off at a gorgeous rented estate in Malibu where Morgan and her girls were getting ready. Everyone was calm, cool, and collected and that is always a sign of how smooth a day is going to go! We took some getting ready shots there, but Morgan put her dress on at Calamigos Ranch. After that we started their Bridesmaid Photos while Josh took the Groomsman Photos and then Morgan and Adrian opted to do a “No look first look” Where they were able to talk to each other and hold hands but not actually see each other. This is a unique twist on the first look. Since we had time in the timeline, this worked perfectly!
After that we all headed to the ceremony. Morgan has many people in her life who love her, so her Dad started the walk down the aisle, but they were joined by her Stepfather halfway! It was very emotional for everyone to see this couple join their hearts and lives on this day. The Ceremony site at the Pavilion is unique as it is separated by a stairway and a bed of Ivy. This makes for beautiful photographs. 🙂
Once the Ceremony was over, we took family photos and then some Bridal party photos. The Ferris Wheel backdrop allowed for the large group of friends that were here to support Morgan + Adrian! Once we were done with that, we spent some quality time with the happy couple for their romantic photos. Using the courtyard, the Ferris Wheel, The Carousel and roads around the property! Let me tell you, we LOVE shooting at Calamigos, having shot in other areas, but The Pavilion hands down is now our favorite part of the property! So many different and unique areas! I couldn’t contain my excitement with all my options!
The Reception was time to enjoy their first dance, amazing cake and donuts, and mingle and dance with their family and friends. The night was amazing and full of such love and laughter. It truly left an impact on Josh and I!
We hope you enjoy these Calamigos Ranch Pavilion Wedding Photos as much as we do!
The Wedding Day couldn’t come to fruition without all the wedding professional involved with this special day!
