A Lovely Bella Collina Wedding:
Courtney & Mike were married at the lovely Bella Collina in San Clemente, CA. The day began with a very unusual Southern California hail storm. Yikes! But by wedding time the hail had moved on and the sun was shining bright. Our team, which included Peyton and Kevin as well, had such an blast at their wedding!
Courtney & Mike are such a sweet and adorable couple. They are gorgeous people inside and out. I'm sure all the guests could see how incredibly in love they are and that they were on Cloud 9 celebrating with all of their friends and family.
We had the chance to work with the wonderful ladies at de Luxe Weddings and Events who did an amazing job coordinating and designing all of the details and working with us to squeeze in as many photos as we could! We also got to enjoy working with Luke Sensebe from Premiere Events Group who rocked the party!
Special thanks to Tanja Janjic from Bella Collina for giving us the grand tour and for making sure we were taken care of on wedding day.
Now onto the photos from Courtney & Mike's Special Day....
P.S. We also had our cinematographer Kevin along with us for Courtney & Mike's wedding day, so make sure to check out the Teaser from their day below.

The Sweet Custom Hanger. LOVE it!
And the shoes:
Courtney got ready with her bridesmaids and her mother Joann in the Ladies Locker Rooms at Bella Collina.
Then the ladies headed over to the organic garden for some bridal party photos at the trellis.
Meanwhile Rob was over with the guys for some getting ready photos and the groomsmen portraits.
Apparently the guys wanted to see if they would be able to catch Mike if he ran away.
But for those who know Mike- they know that if he were running anywhere on the wedding day, it would be toward Courtney <3.
Courtney walked down the aisle with her mother Joann.
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Michael Rice!
This jumping photo was a special request from Courtney & Mike. OK, just Mike. Awesome :)
Courtney had spotted a pitchfork while we were out photographing the bridesmaids. We just had to work it into a photo. LOL. So here's our take on "American Gothic".
Courtney & Mike let us sneak them out of their reception for a few minutes to capture this Night Portrait.
And they had some fantastic sparklers so we couldn't resist a little light painting! Check out that heart. Nice work guys.
Love, Laughter & Celebration! Congrats you two. It was an amazing night.
