“can’t help falling in love”
Caroline & Stephen were happily married on July 26, 2008 at the lovely Historic Cottage at San Clemente State Beach. The cottage is truly a hidden gem tucked away in San Clemente State Park with gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean and just a short walk to the sand. Caroline & Stephen’s wedding was colorful & intimate, much like their unique love and wonderful personalities.
I had the opportunity of working again with the fabulous Amanda and her crew of In The Now Weddings and Events, who ensured that every colorful detail was carefully in place and every event ran smoothly.
Caroline & Stephen – Your wedding was sooo vibrant and beautiful. Thank you for being so easy to work with and making my job that more enjoyable. I know there will be many more colorful moments ahead for the new Mr. & Mrs. Madrid! =) xoxo, Kim Le
Lets start off by checking out a piece of the gorgeous setup. Look at these colors!!!
Ok I think this has got to be the cutest cake I ever seen in my life. It was sooo cute!!! And they had this cool Dia de Los Muertos figurines next to it:
On the other side of the cake was more representative figurines of Caroline & Stephen, personally equipped with their cat and dog =). I decided to use these cute cake decorators for my ring shot:

What a great setting!

I love it when couples honor their moms during the ceremony.
Sealed with a kiss!!!

And now we have a few moments to ourselves for some couple pics down near the beach and railroad tracks. It was nice to get away and just have them enjoy each other, even if it was a lil’ hike back uphill! =)
We found such great spots!
I love Caroline’s model-esque face in this picture. So fierce! =)
