Angie & Julian // Mission Basilica SJC | Harborside Balboa

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of helping my friend Hector to photograph Angie & Julian’s wedding. It was a lovely wedding, and I couldn’t believe this was my first time visiting Mission Basilica in San Juan Capistrano. I’ve been to the mission a million times but this was my first time at the church and I think my jaw is still on the floor. It’s an extremely beautiful church and I couldn’t picture a lovelier place for Angie & Julian’s wedding ceremony. After the ceremony we walked over to the Mission to do some formal pictures of Angie & Julian. It was fun walking through the historic mission and just watch how  Angie & Julian interacted with each other with much glee & joy. The reception was held at the Harborside Balboa Pavilion with the gorgeous Newport Bay as our backdrop. It made for gorgeous scenic views of the bay and boats. During  the reception we headed outside with Angie & Julian to get some last minute portraits of them before the sun completely set. I had so much fun, I’m thankful to Angie & Julian for  letting me be a part of their wedding day.  You guys are amazing!!!
