After the beautiful Tea Ceremony at the Buddhist Temple, Rosalynn and Bill headed back to the Marriott hotel in Newport Beach, California for their bridal portraits. Since they reserved additional time, we were able to drive to Newport Beach for some epic shots with the ocean in the background. This is where Rosalynn showed what a bad*ss she is - she climbed the cliff in her wedding gown - IN HEELS!!
After the beach wedding photos, we made our way to The Newport Beach Harbor for a fabulous reception aboard a yacht. While cruising around the harbor for a few hours, everyone was blown away by the Irish rock band, Craic in the Stone. We were instant fans and loved their version of "Zombie." Craic in the Stone is definitely good "craic", as the Irish say. We wanted them to play longer but the bass player also happened to be the groom and he wanted to actually socialize at his reception - the nerve!
A big thank you to Ashly Covington of Covington Imagery who shot the wedding with me. I'm looking forward to shooting more weddings together in the future as The A Team Imagery. And thank you so much to Rosalynn and Bill for choosing Alissa Esposito Photography to tell their wedding story. We truly enjoyed being part of your special day.
