Samantha and Cory’s Terranea Resort wedding was absolutely spectacular!
Terranea is known as the hidden gem in Los Angeles. This 102 acre Ocean Resort brought all of Samantha’s & Cory’s luxurious, fairy-tale weddings dreams to life!
As you view their wedding images, you’ll notice we took time to include MANY first looks. It was wonderful!
Samantha began with gifts to her sweet bridesmaids, which was followed by fun shenanigans with these gorgeous ladies and her darling flower girl. Next, with the help of her Mom and Maid of Honor, Samantha stepped into her dress, added all of those special touches; shoes, veil, jewelry and then surprised her Bride Tribe with a Bridesmaid Reveal!
Moments later, Samantha’s Father entered for his very own “First Look” and gift (an embroidered handkerchief) from his daughter. And just when you think you couldn’t have any other tears forming from all of these heartfelt moments…another first look!
This time, it was with Samantha’s Grandfather! A blessing was given by her Grandfather and the adoration between the two was so touching.
Our last “surprise” before the ceremony was a gift to the Bride from the Groom, delivered by his mom. It was like Christmas, we all watched in anticipation as Samantha read the card from Cory aloud. She opened the gift and with such sincere excitement she said, “my purse!” A closer look reveled an exquisite Louis Vuitton complete with rolls of cash and a starbucks card of course! And with that, we all agreed, this is how all purses should be gifted – with shopping money and coffee included! Way to go Cory!
Ceremony on the Ocean Lawn
The Ocean Lawn was the picture perfect view for guests and the Bride and Groom alike. Sharing their vows, rings and I Do’s with the Pacific Ocean and it’s stunning sunset horizon was nothing short of breathtaking.
The celebration continued as Mr. and Mrs. Hodge stepped into the sophisticated ballroom and yet again, amazed us all with their first dance moves!
