Love is in the (late spring/early summer) air! Although Connie and Dexter’s Portofino Hotel and Marina wedding is not my first of the season, it does feel like the first wedding of the warm months! And, I’ll be the first to say – we felt so lucky to get such a beautiful day before the real heat of SoCal arrives. There was a bit of wind – but that didn’t dampen our spirits at all! The sun was shining, a stunning backdrop was on display, and every single face had a smile on it (picture evidence below).

From the elegant architecture of the Portofino Hotel & Marina to the bright colors and floral touches in the bridesmaid dresses, cake, and the signage – this wedding was one of those that just had ‘happiness’ written all over it. And don’t even get me started on those bouquets! Swoon! Speaking of happiness, it makes my heart happy to know that Connie and Dexter had a killer team of vendors behind them to ensure they didn’t need to lift a finger the entire day. Well, except for their ring finger ;).
I knew from the moment I met Connie and Dexter for their engagement shoot at Malaga Cove Plaza that their wedding was going to be one to remember. And the most touching part is that their family and friends traveled from near and VERY far just to be a part of the celebration! It’s evident that this amazing couple is so adored by everyone they know.
From the first look to the touching vows, champagne toasts to their first dance – Connie and Dexter continued to put their genuine love and affection for each other on display! It was so special to watch.
Lovely couple, lovely vendors, lovely family, lovely day! Cheers to you two as you start this new life chapter!
