Laura and Ed’s Grand Gimeno, Old Towne Orange elegant wedding was such an incredible day to be a part of. Every little detail that went into their day was full of so much intention. From the delicate paper cranes to the grandeur of the wedding venue, I was constantly picking my jaw up off the ground.
Grand Gimeno, Orange County Wedding
Located in the heart of Old Towne Orange, Grand Gimeno was created by the talented Jay’s Catering. I’ve had the honor of shooting weddings at many of Jay’s Catering’s locations. Let me tell you: they have a knack for creating luxurious, timeless experiences. The space is elevated by Spanish architecture, grand French doors that lead into the foyer, lush landscaping, and the list goes on and on. But two of my favorite elements of the venue were the getting ready spaces. Not only does the bridal suite have vaulted ceilings and phenomenal natural light, so does the groom’s den! Truly a wedding photographer’s dream.
Laura and Ed had roughly 300 people gathered to celebrate their love and commitment to one another. There was so much joy floating throughout from the beginning of the day to the last call. This beautiful couple’s first look took place in their ceremony space in the courtyard; Ed’s reaction was everything. After the “I do’s” were said, the party really started. Laura and Ed were so intentional with how they interacted with each and every guest in attendance. They made sure to go to every single table to personally greet and thank their friends and family. It was beautiful to witness just how much love was emanating from each person as Laura and Ed worked their way around the reception space.
I could seriously gush for an unhealthy amount of time when it comes to Laura and Ed’s Grand Gimeno, Old Towne Orange elegant wedding. Like I said in the beginning, every detail was created with so much intention. While the space wasn’t created just for Laura and Ed, it might as well have been! Wow, I love this job of mine… and all the beautiful couples I have the honor of working with.
