Sarah Yates

Sara and Bo are proof that no matter what comes your way on your wedding day… all that matters is that you get to marry the love of your life. This sweet couple had to change their entire plan of saying “I do” in Lake Tahoe due to the wildfires. But despite doing a complete 180º, their Coastal Newport Beach, California Wedding was absolutely perfect. 

Living in California, it’s safe to say that many of us are used to readjusting plans due to wildfires. But I don’t think many of us expect it to impact our big day. Sara and Bo didn’t hold any animosity when their plans changed. This sweet couple tied the knot at the Lido House in October of 2021. Their coastal wedding was everything anyone could picture when thinking of a beach wedding; the venue was such a dream. The love surrounding this couple was so evident as all of their friends and family traveled in from the East Coast. After Sara and Bo’s intentional, romantic ceremony, we headed to the beach for their romantics. I don’t think I even need to explain how stunning the late afternoon romantics were… see for yourself below 😉 

There is something so magical about witnessing two people so deeply in love with each other come together with their families and friends to celebrate. I will never put it past me that I truly have the best job; I have the honor of capturing the sweetest, most gracious couples. Sara and Bo’s Coastal Newport Beach, California Wedding will forever hold such a special place in my heart.
