CHRISTINE + GAGE // HOTEL SEVEN4ONE // LAGUNA BEACH
Christine and Gage had a stunning end of summer wedding at Hotel Seven4One in Laguna Beach! Christine wore an ethereal gown that danced in the wind while walking hand and hand on the beach with Gage who wore an immaculately tailored Navy Blue suit.
The couple did their did their first look before the ceremony on the beach.. the photos that I captured were tender and beautiful.. Gage just looked at Christine in such awe when he first laid eyes on his beautiful bride.
I loved photographing this couple as they kissed and hugged and held onto one another without any prompting from me; they didn’t need to be told what to do in front of a camera–they were 100% themselves and it was so easy to capture their love!!
Christine is originally from Minnesota and Gage from California. The couple met while Christine was living in LA getting her masters! They currently live and work in Minneapolis and knew that the only place they wanted to get married was in California! When they found Hotel Seven4One they knew it was going to be the perfect venue for their destination wedding and out of town guests!!
Christine and Gage were drawn to this boutique hotel because it is truly gorgeous from every angle and conveniently situated just steps away from one of the most enchanting beaches in Southern California. What makes this venue truly magical is the juxtaposition of a modern venue with organic beauty. The architecture of Hotel Seven4one is clean with strong accents; natural wood covered walls, sprawling greenery and rustic hardware.
The whole day was blissful and fun–effortlessly chic and lighthearted. Guests ate their dinner out of passed martini glasses and desert happened to be donuts instead of cake. (Yes, I said donuts and I might add they they were the most delicious donuts I have ever tasted!!) The couple alongside their guests laughed and danced the night away.
This was a wedding I won’t soon forget!
