Ryan & Lauren’s Wedding Photos at the Rancho Bernardo Inn

It was an awesome Rancho Bernardo Inn wedding, and I was really thankful to be a part of it. Ryan and Lauren tied the knot on a beautiful afternoon in San Diego.

The day started with some getting ready shots. I started with the groom and his friends. The atmosphere was great, as they watched football and drank beer and champagne. After that, I met with Lauren and her friends, that were on a room nearby.

The ceremony happened at the beautiful Santiago Courtyard. It’s my favorite ceremony site due to the Italian Fountain in the backdrop. Everything went smoothly, and Ryan and Lauren walked out as a married couple.

It was time for a few portraits of the bride and groom. Since Rancho Bernardo Inn is a large place, it was easy to find some good spots. I started by taking the couple to the Aragon Lawn. It’s a very picturesque garden, with white roses and rustic benches. The couple was ready to get away for a little bit, and relax taking some photos.

After a short appearance at the cocktail hour, the couple was ready for the grand entrance at their Rancho Bernardo Inn wedding. Their families and guests welcomed them with joy.

First dances were in order, and Ryan and Lauren took the dance floor. It was followed by an emotional father – daughter dance, where Lauren’s dad was very touched.

After dinner, everyone was ready to party. Ryan and Lauren’s guests danced all night long. The dance floor wasn’t empty once. I was able to mingle around the guests, and take some great party pictures.

It was a Rancho Bernardo Inn wedding that I will remember for a long time. Congratulations to Ryan and Lauren, and thanks for allowing me to be a part of their wedding.
