We had a fabulous time with Ilana and Eric on their wedding day at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Palos Verdes.
The view of the ocean from the cliffs paired with the strong winds from the sea made for some very dramatic shots! We even
spotted a whale pod in the distance that made the day even more magical. Our favorite part of the day was taking Ilana and
Eric out for their romantics because the wind played so well with their sweet and playful chemistry.

Wishing you a happy and healthy Memorial Day weekend!

I have been looking forward to Jenn’s wedding for the longest time and I think it’s because we have been friends for more than a decade!
Jenn and Chris make the sweetest couple. They bring out the best in each other and it is so endearing.

Their wedding was located at the palatial Rancho Valencia Resort in North County San Diego, one of the most luxurious staycation spots
you can imagine. We loved capturing the glamorous details throughout the ceremony and reception and, of course, their lovely romantics
where we wandered the property discovering one oasis after another.

Rancho Valencia Resort is one of the best venues we’ve had the pleasure to work with and you’ll see why in the photos.
Holly Chavez, we love you. You are a fabulous and hugely talented wedding planner! We had a great time working with Kristin Brand
and Kristy Warner who did bridal hair and makeup. You brought out the bombshell beauty in Jenn! Heather, of Wisteria Grove Florals,
stunned us with pink and cream bouquets and the table arrangements that filled the reception room with a most beautiful fragrance.
The most perfect cake for this wedding was imagined and created by Cakes to Celebrate.

We were so impressed by how seamless the event unfolded so we are sending hugs and a major thank you to everyone involved.

Jenn & Chris, we wish you two the absolute best!

How did you two meet?

We actually met through my brother. Chris and my brother were in the Navy together and he came over to our house one night and we just
clicked. Chris asked my brother if he thought I would go out on a date with him and my brother said no. We started dating June 18, 2011
and Chris left for deployment at the end of July for 8 months.

Being apart and only being able to communicate via email was tough but allowed us to get to know each other on a level that most people
don’t get the opportunity to experience. We have been inseparable ever since.

Tell us about your proposal:

Chris proposed on my 30th birthday at Alexander’s on 30th in Northpark. He not only surprised me with the proposal but my sister
came down from LA and my parents drove down from the Bay Area to be there along with his best friend. It was absolutely amazing!

Why did you choose your venue?

I have been in the wedding industry for the last 10 years and wanted something totally different than all the other weddings I have done
over the years. We both immediately fell in love with the uniqueness of Rancho Valencia. The staff at Rancho Valencia was incredible
and the food was to die for.

What do you love about each other most?

We love that we truly are best friends and soul mates (as cheesy as that sounds).
We push each other to be better and are always there for each other. We have a bond that will stand the test of time and is unbreakable.

We had the complete pleasure photographing and filming Alyx and Mason their stunning wedding at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa
and we know you’ll enjoy taking a peek into their special day, complete with sweet quotes from Alyx and Mason throughout the post.
Their love for each other and their fabulous family and friends was so profound and beautiful to see. We LOVED capturing their custom
details, lovely romantics, and ceremony which was the perfect balance of personal and traditional and of course had an absolute blast
celebrating the newlyweds by dancing the night away in the Music Room!

The Mission Inn has always been one of our very favorite venues to work and their staff is so professional and efficient, it barely feels
like we’re actually working at all! We think this factor allows us to capture more natural photos and films and we are so thankful that
we got to work with such fabulous vendors such as Dollhouse Hair and Makeup, Alan Meade of 5 Star Mobile DJRiverside Mission
Florist, and ceremony officiated by Jim Granger.

We were so impressed by how seamless everything unfolded and we are sending hugs and a MAJOR Thank You to everyone involved.
Alyx and Mason, we wish you two the absolute best!
xoxoxo Cean and the Team at Cean One Studios, Inc.

How did you two meet?

In our first year at UCLA – we both lived on the same floor in the dorms. Mason is making me write that he always says he looked for
the prettiest girl in the room and the rest is history.
:)

Why did you choose your venue/location?

In our opinion, there is no better place to get married than the historic Mission Inn.

Tell us about your proposal? 

After asking for my dad’s blessing, Mason proposed on Christmas Eve in front of my entire family.

What is it about each other that you love most?

From Mason: The thing I love most about Alyx is that I always know that at the end of the day I’ve got someone in my corner
who will always be there for me, fight for me, make me laugh and fervently love me for the rest of my life.
From Alyx: Mason is my rock. He listens without judgment, he respects me and he showers me with unrelenting warmth and love.

Alyx and Mason’s wedding was made possible by the following vendors:
Venue: Mission Inn
Officiant: Jim Granger
Photography, Videography, Photobooth: Cean One Studios, Inc.
Makeup & Hair: Dollhouse Hair and Makeup
Floral Décor: Elizabeth of Riverside Mission Florist
DJ / Music: Alan Meade of 5 Star Mobile DJ
Cake: Baker’s Oven

We have fallen head over heels with this couple you’re about to see… We had the pleasure of photographing their lovely engagement session last week
in Mission Trails. Rachael and Peter make the sweetest couple and their love for each other is sooo apparent and tender. The story of how they met will
melt your heart. Rachael was the nanny for a family in Temecula and Peter happened to be the karate instructor for the same kids.

They met through the family one day and they were pretty smitten right off the bat. Peter wanted to get to know Rachael right away and asked her on a
date but she refused! Peter was determined and persistent and asked a few more times and eventually Rachael was completely charmed by his sweetness.
She agreed to go on a date… Best decision ever!

The rest is history and Rachael and Peter… We cannot wait to be there this June to photograph your wedding ceremony at St. Martha’s Catholic Church
in Murrieta and Wedgewood in Fallbrook for your reception. xoxoxo Cean and the Team at Cean One Studios, Inc.
