Sara & Rowland, Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel



A romantic, enchanted fairytale! That is the best way to describe Sara and Rowland’s wedding day!Their love for one another was evident from the moment we met, and it continued to show through the entire planning process. Sara had always dreamed of a whimsical wedding–and that is exactly what this wedding turned out to be! Their ceremony at the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel overlooked the ocean with rose petals carefully placed in a design leading up to a lush floral arch.

The couple said ‘I do’ framed with lush greenery and crisp white florals by Flowers By Cina.The romance continued at the reception with hanging vines, twinkle lights, candlelit tables, a beautifully custom carpeted ballroom and touches of soft neutrals with pops of gold. Cold sparklers and low-lying fog made their choreographed first dance extra special.

This couple was in their element all night long! The night ended with an epic dance party complete with confetti poppers! It truly was a night to remember! Enjoy these photos by the talented, Hello Blue Photography! Cheers to the Guilford’s and we wish you all the best as husband and wife!
