It is hard to decide where to even begin in describing this Ojai Valley Inn and Spa wedding day. Literally every single things was just perfect. The couple, is so in love (high school sweethearts), so much fun, and oh yah, absolutely stunning. When you take two awesome people on their wedding day, and combine it with arguably the most beautiful venue in California (maybe the world?) and also mix in the fact that no detail was spared, you are guaranteed to have an amazing day.
Justine and Ben had been waiting a long time for this day to come, as evidenced in each of their heartfelt and thoughtful vows, and it was so amazing to watch these two tie the knot. Their day took place at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, around the breathtaking property. The girls started in the bridal suite with hair and makeup, and lots of laughter. The were in their room to get their tuxes on and then toast with some top notch scotch. Then it was time for the first look. Ben went off to the herb garden to wait for his bride to tap him on the shoulder so he could see her for the first time. We love first looks as they are always so beautiful and intimate, and this one was no exception.
From there friends and family met briefly in the artist cottage for the Ketubah signing, and then it was time for the ceremony. Just before sunset, everyone gathered in the grove overlooking the golf course two watch these two awesome people get married. The ceremony ran right up into the sunset, which was unreal. Bright orange sunlight and clouds swept over the sky, which was just in time for some shots of the lovely couple.
Then we transitioned to cocktail hour, and eventually the reception. Now, we’ve seen a lot of receptions, but this one was unreal. The amount of time and detail that went into decorating this already beautiful ballroom was amazing. These two had truly thought of everything. Guests were entertained by live music, a Persian tea bar, and lots of dancing (including a special dance for Ben). We were so honored to be able to capture this wonderful Ojai Valley Inn and Spa wedding, and wish these two the very best!
