Dana and Ron had a their wedding ceremony at the Basilica Chapel at Mission San Juan Capistrano. Following the ceremony we headed into the Mission Grounds for some family photography and some romantic portraits.

I have been in the wedding industry for 20+ years and I┬áhave to admit this was a first for me, a murder mystery wedding reception. It was a blast. All of the couples kids were involved in the drama of the mystery. Like their center pieces say “till Death do we part”. I’ve got to admit it was kind of a fun wedding reception and actually the first murder mystery I have ever been too.

What a great location to choose to have their reception, The Vintage in historical downtown San Juan Capistrano, the setting was perfect for murder mystery… as the crime was solved and they were taking the murderer away another murder occurred, so the reception was to be continued!!

Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of my favorite places to shoot any type of portraits from weddings, to engagement photos to family portraits. There is a perfect view around every corner of the Mission. One of my favorite spots in the mission is The Sacred Gardens.
