This couple is simply beautiful inside and out. Full of so much joy and beauty, we were blessed to capture their love story and wedding day. We’re excited to share with you the Seven Degrees Laguna Beach wedding of Renee and Welton:
the love story
I (Renee) was looking for a job at a pharmacy to get experience before applying to pharmacy school and applied to a local CVS that was hiring. I found out years later that they had hired Welton first, but another department tried to steal him so they hired me afterwards.
He called CVS back when he hadn’t heard from them in awhile and cleared up the miscommunication.
Since they offered both of us the position, they ended up hiring both of us when they were only looking for one additional team member.
Here we are 10 years later (from when we first met), getting married, makes me believe in fate!
He proposed to me a week after Valentine’s Day (2/22), because he did not want to be “cliche.”
I came back from work to find our apartment dark – with rose petals and tea light candles everywhere.
He had a glass of wine ready and asked me to watch a video slideshow he had made.
At the very end of the slideshow, Jason Derulo’s “Marry Me” came on, and he got down on one knee… said something sentimental which for the life of me I cannot remember… and then asked me to marry him!
the wedding day
The adorable “I Do” embellishments on her something blue bridal heels from Guess
That magical moment when it’s time to put on your wedding dress
With a little high-five from her ADORABLE baby dog, Ramen
Even Ramen was in awe of how beautiful a bride Renee was
Her first look with her parents: Classic. Priceless.
Gifts are a beautiful way to celebrate right before the couple’s very first look on their wedding day. Welton surprised Renee with something quite fabulous.
This stunning Chanel purse – perfect little wedding memento to bring to their honeymoon in Paris.
Love that moment when the bride and groom see each other for the first time.
Then, it was time to play around with their awesome bridal party!
The beautiful ladies
The awesome groomsmen
It was time to say, “I Do” at the gorgeous Seven Degrees in Laguna Beach.
Even their adorable Ramen walked down the aisle for the processional
So many gorgeous spots to capture this beautiful couple at Seven Degrees
Renee, seriously, you were such a gorgeous bride!
They gifted their guests with amazing caricatures hand drawn by an animator from the AWESOME Big Hero 6!
What a fabulous wedding favor!
Then, the evening celebration began! Seven Degrees has one of the most gorgeously modern and chic wedding reception locations in the area.
So many beautiful details
The DELICIOUS Creamistry ice cream had their own table set up as a special dessert for the guests.
An unforgettable grand entrance and first dance
Seriously enjoyed one of the most entertaining DJ games from a wedding reception ever. The blindfolded groom had to guess from the 5 people that kissed him – who was his bride?
The surprise kissers included his grandmother
and father-in-law (priceless)
Renee’s reaction was awesome
After so many tears of joy and laughter, it was an unforgettably beautiful night.
Renee and Welton, since first meeting you, we knew your wedding was one we couldn’t wait to celebrate – and we were right. You had us crying with joy and laughing throughout the whole day. It was an unforgettable wedding for a truly beautiful couple. May God’s grace and peace bless your marriage and life together my dears. Congratulations to the gorgeous couple!
With all our love,
