THE MISSION INN HOTEL AND SPA // RIVERSIDE, CA WEDDING
Misha and Julian's wedding was truly a destination wedding in our backyard. The Mission Inn in Riverside provided a jaw dropping visual landscape for this beautiful couple's special day. Few wedding venues have inspired such epic elegance and romance. Did we just step into another world? Europe perhaps? Everywhere we turned, it was the perfect backdrop to capture their love story, especially the amazing spiral rotunda staircase! There were so many moments that took our breath away. I remember a certain electricity in the air as the towering doors of St Francis of Assisi Chapel swung open. There's nothing more special than that sweet moment of anticipation just before a groom sees his bride walk toward him down the aisle. Misha radiated marital bliss all day, and looked stunning in both her ceremony and separate reception dress. The reception was a feast for the eyes with deep red florals, crystal chandeliers, and the soft light of what seemed like a thousand glimmering candles. Misha and Julian were so naturally and effortlessly in love in front of our lens and we couldn't have dreamed up a more picturesque day for this picture perfect couple!
