[explore] beach date at the cove.

I can’t believe I’ve lived in Orange County for almost two years and haven’t been down to The Beachcomber or even down to this part of Crystal Cove! D and I had made plans to head up to the Getty Villa, but a little bit of car trouble (blessing in disguise?)  led us on this spontaneous adventure instead.
If you’ve never been, Crystal Cove is a great beach to go to because it’s a little more tucked away. We parked across PCH and headed down this sweet, little foot path down to the coast. We lunched at The Beachcomber, taking photos while we waited for our table. I’m such a planner, but this spontaneous day was a breath of fresh air. With the gorgeous weather being forecasted, we’re looking forward to many more days like this in the near future!

[zach + elise] our friends got married!


Our sweet friends (who just happen to be our next door neighbors) got married last weekend! Zach and Elise got married at Red Horse Barn, which was a gorgeous venue that I had somehow overlooked in my own wedding location search. And their photographer, Levi Christiansen was actually the second photographer at our own wedding. Zach worked with husband, and we met Elise at one of their work events. It’s been pretty fab having them right next door for impromptu double dates and game nights… with many more to come.

Best wishes, Zach & Elise!

We love you, guys.

We were so honored (and of course, ecstatic) to be a part of this beautiful wedding celebration. A confession: I cried… many happy tears. And wedding season is just beginning.
