It’s no secret that I feel the most alive at the beach, right? And while I could gush on and on about the beauty of how the ocean kisses the shore. But today, I’m going to gush about Bre and Neil instead. This sweet couple’s beachy vision came through for their San Clemente, California tropical wedding at the Ole Hanson Beach Club. This wedding is the epitome of Orange County Tropical Wedding inspiration. I’m convinced that there’s simply no dreamier location than here.
I don’t even know where to begin to explain how much joy and celebration surrounded Bre and Neil on their wedding day. I truly don’t think a more hype bridal party exists. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of one minute that passed where there wasn’t one of Bre’s girlfriends hyping her up. There’s nothing better than an encouraging group of women – especially on your wedding day! And having a first look with your bridesmaids!? 10/10 recommend. I also highly recommend a first look with your dog!! (I am obsessed with Bre and Neil’s Corgi, Cooper.)
Once at the wedding venue, it was time for wedding party photos. Bre and Neil’s entire wedding party was cheering them on the entire time; the energy was unmatched. After we wrapped up the wedding party photos, it was time for the ceremony. The bride and groom had planned their ceremony to take place at sunset, overlooking the beautiful ocean. The perfect San Clemente California tropical wedding vibes!The golden rays of sunshine, salty breeze, and warm air were such a perfect way to encompass such a beautiful day. As if the ceremony wasn’t enough, the romantics were my favorite part of the day. I was able to sneak the newlyweds away for the most beautiful golden hour romantics. Capturing Bre and Neil in their element was so special; it wasn’t that long ago that we were on another beautiful San Clemente Southern California beach taking their engagement photos!
Bre and Neil,
Thank you for giving me the honor of capturing not one, but two sweet chapters of your love story. I know that your wedding day was long awaited; you couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. I’m so excited to watch your love continue to grow. May your marriage be full of laughter, encouragement, and joy. (And of course, lots of Cooper lovin’)
Bre and Neil’s Orange County, California tropical wedding was the epitome of a SoCal wedding – a dream. Best of living in SoCal?! The diversity of environment!
