Ojai Wedding Photographer – Intimate Ceremony at Meditation Mount

Everything about Adam and Evangeline’s wedding was meaningful, sweet, and adorable. They got married on their 7th anniversary, which was the same thing my husband and I did, so I knew from early on we would have some cool stuff in common. The couple got ready at Emerald Iguana Inn before doing the first look. The ceremony took place at Mediation Mount overlooking the gorgeous hills and valleys of Ojai. The intimate ceremony had 25 guests and was so personal that Evangeline’s mom actually officiated it. After the ceremony, we wandered through the retreat’s gardens and took portraits as the sun was setting. Such a beautiful day!
