Laguna Niguel Ritz Carlton Wedding | Erika & Ronnel

  This glamorous Laguna Niguel Ritz Carlton Wedding of a gorgeous bride Erika and handsome Ronnel was so cool to photograph. Their wedding was like a dream in a picture-perfect location with a Pacific Ocean backdrop. But before I share the wedding details, here is the story of their love.

Laguna Niguel Ritz Carlton Wedding

  Erika and Ronnel’s love story began at the South Coast Plaza. While shopping for new clothing together with his friend, Ronnel spotted Erika’s at her boutique, where she was working as sales representatives. Ronnel couldn’t take his is off her, so Erika felt uncomfortable and hesitant to assist him. However, that did not last long, and she did help Ronnel with finding the right size of clothing. After that, he asked Erika to go out with him for a coffee. However, Erika is a tuff cookie, she politely declined Ronnel’s invitation and instead she gave him her business card, hoping to build a business type of relationship. Luckily, Ronnel is very persistent, and he does now what he wants. So, he kept coming back to Erika’s shop until one day she said “yes” and they went out on a date. Since then, they became more than just friends.

  As the time passed by, their love grew stronger and in 2017 on Valentine’s day, a big surprise was coming. Erika asked if Ronnel has any special plans on this day, but he said that he doesn’t. However, Ronnel ended getting tickets to the Lakers game at the Staples Center. As they got inside the stadium, Erika noticed that Ronnel looked a bit tense and he was quiet. She got a suspicion that something is coming. The seats Ronnel got were the best, located on the floor level in the middle of the court. When half of the game passed, Ronnel gave his phone to Erika with a note written on the screen. As soon as Erika finished reading it, she looked up and saw Roneel on his knee asking for her to be his wife.

  Erika had a big dream for her wedding, so Ronnel let her plan it in a way she always wanted. Since they wanted to get married by the end of the year, Erika decided to get help, because to plan a wedding is overwhelming. Luckily, she found incredibly talented wedding planner Jenny Cheng from Rocken Events. She used her charm and magic to make Erika’s dream wedding to come through without any stress.

  Laguna Niguel Ritz Carlton Wedding of Erika and Ronnel was amazing and perfect. The reception was sophisticated and stunning, decorated with white roses and hanging floral arrangements on the sealing. The overall look was modern with delicate ambiance. The bride and groom were savoring every moment with their guests, and they both said “I do” when the sun landed beyond the horizon of the Pacific Ocean.
