Redondo Beach Hotel Wedding | Heather and Jose

A Redondo Beach Hotel Wedding

Heather and Jose’s Redondo Beach Hotel wedding was about as perfect as you could imagine. A Saturday in Southern California started like no other – sunny and warm. As the wedding ceremony approached, the marine layer slowly crept in, creating the perfect California Coastal vibe. There was no doubt that the Redondo Beach Hotel was the perfect location for these two as they said their vows on the outdoor deck, over looking the Redondo Beach marina.

One of my favorite things about photographing at the Redondo Beach Hotel is how close it is to the beach and the marina. It makes it so easy to walk (or a short drive) over to The Strand to take wonderful wedding photos. Plus, I always love being in a public space with my brides and grooms because everyone absolutely loves to say congratulations! No matter how much you like or dislike attention, its always nice to hear “congratulations” on your wedding day. Because the marine layer was illuminating everything so perfectly, the bridal party photos turned out amazing. The sun even poked its head out for a few seconds to give the photos some warm backlight at the end.

The Lovely Bride and Groom

Let me tell you a little bit about the bride and groom. These two were meant for each other and I don’t mean that in the cliche way – I truly mean it. They travel the world together, work hard and share the aspiration of being adventurous and living life to the fullest. I loved seeing how they interacted with each other during their wedding day. They exchanged friendly gazes throughout the entire day, the laughed and they cried. The best part was their first dance – a choreographed number to Despacito. SAY WHAT. I only took my first salsa dance last week but I can tell you they freaking nailed it!

Overall Heather and Jose were just so happy to celebrate their wedding at The Redondo Beach Hotel with their closest friends and family. They planned it perfectly and I feel so honored to be their wedding photographer!

Thank you Heather and Jose. I already know you will enjoy being husband and wife as you travel the world and grace people’s lives with your kind and adventurous nature!
