Chris and Kandace don’t take a second of their love story for granted.
It all began during the height of the pandemic, when their dates and dinners were outdoors and distanced. But the circumstances forced them to focus on the important things, and they had an instant connection.
Beyond their shared love of travel and skiing and staying active outdoors, all of their most important values lined up… it was the kind of “you get me” feeling that catapulted their spark into a flame.
After many hardships in life prior to their relationship, it’s so obvious that a deep gratitude overflows out from both Chris and Kandace when they’re together. After patiently waiting for the right person, every minute they have together feels endlessly precious.
And their families couldn’t have agreed more – they instantly fell in love with Chris and Kandace as a couple, and couldn’t WAIT to celebrate them.
Chris and Kandace dreamed of celebrating their love with the ocean waves within earshot, so they couldn’t have had a more classic, elegant, beautiful venue than Montage Laguna Beach. The view of the water at dinner… the portraits near the water… it was a dream come true.
Their oceanfront wedding reception was perfectly designed for them, and their vendor team made it all so seamless! Emily Smiley was their incredible wedding planner and designer, everything was caught on film by ScenEmotion Films, and Jordan Music Entertainment was the energetic and talented band that kept the whole guest list dancing!
The elegant dinner reception, the golden hour portraits, the hearts-of-gold couple… this wedding was soul-inspiring and heart-melting all in one! I know you’re going to love Chris & Kandace!
Chris and Kandace: You two deserve this love. Plain and simple. There were so many moments at your wedding day that made Jeff and I cry tears of joy for you two – thank you for inviting us to capture your special celebration. Sending you bunches of love!
