Pelican Hill Resort – Mar Vista Ballroom – Newport Beach Wedding – Cassie & Ben

Cassie and Ben were married this past weekend in Newport Beach. The ceremony took place at the Our Lady Queen of Angels church. The wedding was followed by an outdoor cocktail hour at the Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Coast on the Event lawn. The perfect weather and beautiful Pacific Ocean panoramic views from the event lawn made for an exceptional evening. Dinner and dancing followed in the Mar Vista Ballroom. The 5 star service and impeccable attention to detail at the Pelican Hill resort made this a platinum wedding.casie_ben-01

I love his expressions, he looks as if he is completely in love. The image of them under the rotunda is my favorite.
