Turnip Rose Promenade Gardens Wedding Photography

Jessica and Craig held their wedding at the beautiful Turnip Rose Promenade Gardens in Costa Mesa, CA. Jessica and Craig had such a wonderful wedding day. The day began when they each arrived at the Turnip Rose to get ready. They ready in their private bridal suites, and once all dolled up they headed to their "first look". The "first look" was awesome because there is a mini vineyard nearby, and it was such a fantastic and romantic spot for them to see each other for the first time on their wedding day!  We absolutely love Craig's smile when he first saw Jessica! So sweet.

They held their ceremony in the lovely outdoor garden gazebo. We really enjoyed how engaged their family was during the ceremony. Such loving attention and expressions. And it didn't hurt that the ring bearer and flower girl were SUPER adorable!

We feel so incredibly honored to have been invited to share in this day and get to meet Jessica and Craig's friends and family.

There were many special moments throughout the day. A few of our favorites were when we got to take romantic bridal portraits with Jessica and Craig.  As a couple, they have this fantastic blend of sophisticated and glamorous while also sweet and romantic which we adore!

We also had the honor of creating their wedding video. We will share the video here once it's ready. Stay tuned.

Jessica & Craig: Thank you for inviting our team to document your wedding day. We know this is the most special day for you and your families, and we thank you for the privilege to be a part of this time with you. We hope this sneak peek helps you to re-live your wedding day and bring back many beautiful memories for generations to come.  -Robert & Jessica

Redondo Beach Library Wedding Photography | Jessica and Chris

Robert and I first met Jessica and her mother Susan at a Bridal Show in 2014. They were both so sweet, and we really enjoyed talking to them and getting to know them. Jessica and Chris live in Ohio, so we got to meet Chris via Skype a bit later. We instantly saw what a brilliant pair Jessica and Chris are! Jessica's super organized, detailed, and logistic so I loved that throughout the planning process. Chris is very calm, caring, and flexible so he  was such a pleasure to work with and together Chris and Jessica make a wonderful team. They are adorable around each other and that certainly made for beautiful moments throughout the wedding day. We loved capturing Jessica's happy tears during the first look and her smiles throughout the day. And I must say Chris has the best laugh! You can see how awesome it is in some of the photos below. On a side note- Chris and Jessica have the coolest parrot named "Mr. Pickles". Mr. Pickles didn't get to attend the wedding, but I think he sent one of his bird friends to make an appearance during the bridal portraits on the beach at sunset :)

Jessica & Chris, thank you for the privilege of documenting your wedding day. We had the best time with both of you and your friends and family and hope you enjoyed our company too! We hope these photos bring back so many wonderfully happy and beautiful moments form your wedding day that you can relive for years and years to come. <3 Jessica & Robert
