If you are looking for a truly special venue in Orange County, you will want to check out Rancho Las Lomas in Silverado, California. This please is so unique, in its architecture and amenities, whimsical atmosphere and just the plain old fact they have tigers, zebras, and other exotic animals on site! Jenny and Derek’s wedding here was hands-down one of our favorites of the year. With over 400 guests it was a daunting task but every detail of this wedding was hand selected by the bride and executed to perfection. It was such a pleasure to photograph it and the couple. Our favorite part was how glamorous the reception turned out once everything was set up. WOW. Our second favorite part is that Jenny and Derek have become friends and we look forward to spending more time with them and getting to know this wonderful couple. Congratulations, we wish them a most beautiful future together.
When I got asked to second shoot with Closer to Love Photography at Rengstorff House in Mountainview, California I had no idea what I was getting myself into! I met these two lovable people who playfully called themselved TimTam and based their wedding off the popular chocolatey Australian dessert. Why is this fitting? Because Tam is from Australia and she moved all the way to Northern California to be with Tim after falling madly in love, hence TimTam. I really loved shooting at Rengstorff House, it is a great venue to have your ceremony and outdoor reception all in one place. Here are a few of the favorites I shot during the day.
