• Classic Wedding In Laguna Beach: Ritsuko & Sean

    Classic Laguna Beach Wedding | Leila Brewster Photography & The Special Day on ohlovelyday.com

    When this pretty Laguna Beach wedding landed in my inbox I just knew I had to share it. Having attended a Laguna Beach wedding at very fancy hotel once myself (Paul McCartney and his then-wife Heather Mills watched from their balcony and even sent champagne to the couple during their reception) I know how breathtaking this setting really was. Planned perfectly by The Special Day and captured by Leila Brewster, it’s one of those classic weddings every little girl dreams of.

    The wedding had touches of Ritsuko’s Japanese history – she handmade origami cranes that were at each place setting and brought in a translator to translate the ceremony.

    Ritsuko is from Japan and Sean learned to speak Japanese to seamlessly fit into her life.  They wanted a destination wedding and chose to have an intimate reception at the Ritz in Laguna Beach. All of their guests traveled in from the East Coast and her family from Japan. Southern California was their compromise – have their guests meet in the middle! A great start to a marriage, don’t you think? Be sure to check out the gallery for even more lovely images from Leila Brewster! I especially love the black and whites. And how fabulous is that reception dress!?

    And be sure to check out the video from Jakfoto Films too!
