I’m so excited to tell you about Marlene + Michael’s elegant Glen Ivy Golf Club wedding! I was introduced to this awesome couple by the also-awesome Annette of Events by Annette. As soon as I met them, I just loved them! They are so much fun and the best word to describe Marlene would definitely be “bubbly!” They were engaged in January and getting married in May because they figured, “Why wait?” I love that :) Marlene + Michael had such a gorgeous vision for their day I could hardly wait to see all the details revealed!

Marlene + Michael’s ceremony was at The Mission Inn in Riverside, so they started their day there getting ready!
Love this sweet moment between Marlene and her mom :)
Marlene + Michael planned on a first look…but first…there was a trick first look! This is Marlene’s brother and it was so funny seeing Michael’s reaction!
Okay, onto the FIRST real look! One of my favorite images of the day – Marlene with her girls as they helped her to the first look spot!
How fabulous are they? Love!
The Mission Inn has one of the darkest ceremony locations I’ve ever photographed a wedding in! Thank goodness for cameras with amazing ISO capabilities :) I think it gives the images a timeless look :)
After the ceremony we headed to Glen Ivy Golf Club and got some images on the course! Gimme all that backlight! :)
The Glen Ivy ballroom was so gorgeous! Just so many amazing details! Marlene + Michael had a fantastic team to bring their vision to life! The centerpieces in particular were works of art!
Marlene + Michael brought in a FOG MACHINE for their first dance! Um, I’m gonna need all my future couples to do this :) It made for a super dreamy first dance!
At the end of the evening we went out for a few nighttime shots. I’m ending with this image because I think it’s SO their personalities! Congratulations Marlene + Michael!
