St. Regis Resort & Spa
One Monarch Beach Resort
Dana Point, CA 92629
I’ll take this commute to work any day of the week. There are two ways to get to the St Regis – the 73 highway through rolling southern California hills and/or the Pacific Coast Highway (google it, haha). Either way you are in for a peaceful, sense filled trek. From their website, “The St. Regis Monarch Beach was imaginatively conceived to envelop the senses, answer every desire and stir the soul. With its oceanfront allure, Tuscan style and timeless attentiveness, The St. Regis is California’s only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond awarded resort.”
Summer has been so elusive this year, hasn’t it? In the middle of August the sun is hiding and then peaks out only for a few hours. Orange County still rocks the best year-round weather in the US, but we’ve definitely had cooler days this summer.
The wedding of Alyssa and Todd was a beautiful day – Dana Point, St. Regis, white roses, Rosa Clara gown, live music, cigars, and Mr. Sunshine peeking out at all the perfect times. The event was coordinated by Sharon Gall at Once Upon A Time Weddings and went off without a hitch . . .
Two very significant shots from the ceremony – coming in with Dad, walking out with husband . . .
