Where the Surf really does meet the Turf
One of the more exciting parts about being an Orange County wedding photographer is the people that you get to meet and the locations you get to visit in this great county that I get to shoot photos at. This is just what I experienced with Jennifer and Eric for their recent wedding shoot.
Jennifer and Eric got married at the Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach, CA. Who would have ever thought that there would be horse country in Surf City U.S.A.? But there it was, kind of like Surf and Turf. The venue offers a really nice rustic country feel. This was the perfect backdrop for Jennifer as she is a country girl at heart, who loves country music and riding horses. Eric is quieter, yet smiles big and brings joy when he enters into a room.
The ceremony itself was beautiful and Jennifer included her daughter, Hayley, as a big part of the day as the three of them poured unity sand together during the ceremony. Smiles abound this September day.
From the viewpoint of Jennifer and Eric….

A: We are going to Sandals Antigua. We chose to go there because We wanted an all-inclusive place that was romantic and beautiful. Throw in that we both love tropical weather and there you have it.
