Old Ranch Country Club Wedding Photography

Kerry was determined to do her wedding right! She and Mark selected Mark's home church Bethany Lutheran in Long Beach as well as the gorgeously renovated Old Ranch Country Club for their respective ceremony and reception venues, and researched and hired talented vendors such as Flower Allie florist, HD In Vision videography, Beauty and the Beach hair and makeup services for the gals, Station Identification DJ service, OC Limo transportation, Wedding Paper Divas for the stationary details, and Cinderella Cakes bakery for the cakes.  There were so many creative details with splashes of rich purple color I thought my shutter finger was going to fall off photographing it all!Couple with veilargyle socks
