La Ventura Event Center in San Clemente, CA.
This shoot was part one of a content day I put together. When it came to putting together a day of shoots I knew I wanted to kick the day off with an epic spring inspired wedding styled shoot... So I began by creating a Pinterest board and looking for wedding venues in Southern California. When I came across La Ventura Event Center I knew that this was where I wanted to have it! I mean look at their potted garden walls?! The Spanish architecture and tiles was just what I was looking for! I reached out to a few vendors that I previously worked with and asked if they were available and open to collaborating, and thankfully everyone was so stoked about the vision I had in mind!

One of the first vendors I reached out to was Merced with Dote Events, she had done the signage at my previous styled shoot at LUCE On Kettner, and I knew I wanted to collaborate again! She said she was in, then also mentioned that she does event planning, so we hopped on a Zoom call and I shared my vision with her and we got to putting our heads together to create some magic! The next person I knew I NEEDED was Leah Mai... the most amazing florist ever! I seriously adore Leah so much, she's so amazing not just as a person but at bringing a vision to life. I recommend her to all of my brides! I just can't speak highly enough of her. I sent her my inspiration, we got to chatting and she was in! I was so excited because I knew that whatever she created would just bring the whole day together! After I had those two incredible vendors on board the rest fell into place! This day was a dream come true, the turnout was fantastic and I met so many amazing photographers that I got to create alongside. It was perfection!

If you're looking for a stunning venue in Southern California look no further than La Ventura Event Center! There's so much detail put into this venue and it's incredible. When I walked in and started checking out the space I was blown away by how beautiful it is. they have both an indoor and outdoor space which is so nice!
