Newport Beach, CA | Kelli + Michael | Intimate Beach Wedding

Let me just start by saying that I love the beach. Whenever I get the chance, I like to go listen to the waves and put my toes in the sand. When Kelli contacted me that she needed a photographer for only an hour on Saturday for her beach ceremony, I jumped at the chance to do so.  

All week the forecast called for rain, which anyone in Southern California knows that this winter we are welcoming El Nino. Well, the weather ended up being absolutely perfect, like the day was made just for them. The wind was light and the afternoon sun was perfectly diffused through the clouds.

After two years of dating these two decided on a fun, light hearted, and intimate beach ceremony in front of close family and their adorable pugs! This beachy pair chose to tie the knot at The Wedge, a popular spot in Newport known especially for the jetty and the high surf. It is such a great area to photograph at and I would totally recommend it to anyone looking for engagement locations or for a small beach ceremony!  

Congratulations Kelli + Michael, wishing you two the happiest ever after!
