Catherine + Tim // Bella Collina San Clemente Wedding

January 18, 2019

The sun, slowly melted beyond the San Clemente coastal hills. The warm air began to cool. The tall cypress trees perfectly aligned the golf course driveway, safely hugging Catherine and Tim, as they shared a quiet moment as newly weds.

Catherine and Tim’s beautiful Bella Collina wedding in the sunny coastal city of San Clemente, California, was picture perfect! From the time I spoke with Catherine during our initial consultation, to photographing Catherine and Tim’s engagement session, to their love-filled wedding day, I could feel how much the two cared for one another.

It was a perfect Southern California day. When I first arrived, Catherine and her bridemaids — dressed in their beautiful dusty blue dresses, were all sitting together in the bridal suite, calm as can be. Catherine was glowing from head to toe and one of the calmest brides I’ve seen! After photographing her beautiful details, Catherine got dressed in her stunning and elegant Casablanca wedding gown. The rest of the day was surrounded by loving and welcoming family and friends.

Catherine and Tim’s wedding day was pure perfection. From the romantic and charming first look, to the gorgeous ceremony, to their fun, loving, and easy going reception, their special day is one that I’ll always remember.

Catherine and Tim, thank you so much for having me by your side on one of the best days of your lives. I will always cherish how welcoming your families were and the love I felt between the two of you. I wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness!
