Steve & Michelle Stein
Tennis Estate, Dana Point
Cindy Burns (from the Funniest Housewives of Orange County) asked us to photograph the wedding of her son and daughter-in-law-to-be: Steve and Michelle Stein. The quaint setting was a private estate backed by mountains, glowing from the slowly-setting sun. The sunlight kissed Michelle’s red hair as I immortalized her nuptial preparations. The groom and his entourage reveled in the pre-ceremony excitement, looking quite dapper in their gray suits and humoring me with a few serious poses.
It was a warm autumn evening as the guests sat in quiet anticipation. Music began for the bride’s entrance and Michelle stepped elegantly along the path of orange and red petals, setting the tone for a sweet and touching ceremony.
Michelle’s son has a knack for design and had decorated the reception area with vivid colors, creating a festive setting. The couple’s first dance was so heart-warming, it seemed it need never stop. Afterward, guests congratulated the beaming couple before they drove off into the night and their new lives as Mr. and Mrs. Stein.
