Good afternoon from Orange County at Esquire Photography HQ everyone! It’s TRex Tuesday and I’m one Newport Beach Wedding Photographer with Duran Rex who are totally excited to share Stacie & Mike’s Mission Viejo wedding I photographed at the Mission Viejo Country Club with you!
With all the exciting photo shoots, weddings and events going on with Esquire Photography around the world (like my next International Photography Workshop in London, England) it’s definitely an awesome 2012 so far. And! It’s only May!
I first had the honour of meeting Stacie & Mike back in 2008 at Dana & Rod’s Long Beach Wedding at the Sky Room in Downtown Long Beach. I could tell from the minute I met them nearly four years ago they were an awesome couple, so when they reached out to me to photograph their wedding, there was only one word that escaped my lips and that was a resounding; YES!
One of my favourite stories from Stacie & Mike’s wedding is her wedding dress. Stacie bought her wedding dress at David’s Bridal nearly ten years ago when her & Mike first started dating. She just knew he was the one & to accessorize her wedding dress perfectly, Stacie also wore her Grandmother’s pearl necklace, her sister’s pearl earrings and a friend of hers made a beautiful garter with blue beads on it too.
Stacie & Mike’s outdoor garden wedding was held towards sunset at the Mission Viejo Country Club. From the floral arrangements provided by; Bloomers Flowers in La Jolla, to the Bundt Cake & Bundt Cake minis (Rod & I were having fun reenacting the scene from “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” before the cake toss saying “Bundt” – hehehe!), to the entrance song; “Power of Love” by Huey Lewis & the News (they first met at a Huey Lewis concert) & DJ Christopher Mathews blowing the roof off with the best spinning AND mixing I’ve heard in a long Long LONG time at a reception – their wedding day was an absolute blast.
I would like to say thank you to Ms. Lorraine Grassmann, the Assistant General Manager & Membership Director at the Mission Viejo Country Club too. She led an army of professionals – making sure Stacie & Mike’s Mission Viejo wedding was absolutely perfect for me to photograph. If you’re looking for an exquisite property with the best service in the industry – totally contact Lorraine as soon as possible because their dates tend to book up fast!

PS, Check out this awesome quote I shared on Twitter keeping the “Butterfly Effect” moving forward – spreading positivity. It’s a totally new one & I really think it is so very true. “Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.” — Lou Holtz.
UBER PS EXTREME!!! If you thought the first few days of “MAY MADNESS” have been pretty cool, then you definitely want to keep up with me every day in May. There’s a GRAND FINALE coming up at the end of the month & trust me, You’ll LOVE IT!
