Lake Arrowhead Resort Fairytale Wedding

Lake Arrowhead Resort¬†made the perfect setting for James and Anna’s woodsy fairytale wedding. Prior to the ceremony, we snuck away to a secluded spot in the forest with a stone ruin. This location was a magical place for the couple to share their first look. It was straight out of a storybook!

Brides who are planning a fairytale wedding in Southern California are sure to find inspiration from this enchanted wedding in the mountains!

I absolutely love capturing dramatic bridal party portraits. These girls looked so fierce in their wine colored bridesmaid dresses. The color tones worked so well for a Fall wedding in the mountains!

That reaction! The first look will always be one of my favorite parts of the wedding day. Excited groom reaction during first look in the forest Romantic twirling photo of bride and groom in the Southern California forest

It is so much fun when a couple is down for some adventure on their wedding day! These two were excited to sneak away to this secret spot in the forest. It was so worth it because they look straight out of a fairytale storybook. This stone ruin reminds me so much of an ancient castle.

A long sleeved lace wedding gown is such a classic and timeless look. Anna did a perfect job of pairing her romantic and elegant dress with the whimsy of a floral crown.
