Miranda & David met online and Miranda knew right away that he was different and special. Even though they lived an hour away from each other, they made it work, seeing each other almost every weekend. Soon David introduced Miranda to his son and from there everything continued to work like clockwork! This couple is so sweet together and it’s wonderful that they found each other! So many of my couples meet online and I really love how many love stories have come out of this modern way of finding someone.
Both the wedding ceremony and reception took place at L’Auberge Del Mar. This is one of my favorite southern California seaside wedding venues. Everything is so organized and the attention to detail is impeccable. Not to mention the delicious food and the unique venue that overlooks the ocean. You really would think that these types of views would be more common in wedding venues but they are actually quite unique! Every single wedding I have shot at L’Auberge in Del Mar, California has been flawless and beautiful, the couple has absolutely nothing to worry about but having a great time with their friends and family on their wedding day!

My favorite moment:
My favorite moment was the sand ceremony where they incorporated David’s son. I think it is beautiful to make your own traditions! In this day and age of blended families, it is so wonderful to bring the kids into the ceremony so they understand how important and special they are at this moment of change and new beginnings!
