Elegant Dana Point Wedding | Ben and Laura

An emotional wedding on the cliffs of Dana Point with just the right amount of wonder. Design by Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings.

The ocean breeze that reached across the cliffs of Dana Point reminded us all to look out over the immense blue expanse that lay before us. This place is special to Laura and her family, and you could see it in her eyes whenever she looked out over the water. In her heart, Laura shared this day with her mother who has passed away, and her memory lived strong with every wonderful moment. In her arms, Laura shared the day with the love of her life – a strong man with character, integrity, and passion. And Ben held her closer and closer with every passing moment.

Ben and Laura live in Houston, but they traveled to Dana Point with their friends and family to say, “I do” next to the big blue ocean. Southern California is special to them, so we made sure to incorporate it in any way that we could, including doing their First Look out on a gorgeous jetty so they could be surrounded by the beauty!!

We have Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings to thank for this breathtaking wedding at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point. Jennifer Cole put her heart and soul into the stunning floral design and the talented ladies of Vanity Belle made Laura look gorgeous.
