I had the honor and privilege to be a part of Roni and Zach’s special day on March 24th at Five Crowns in Newport Beach, California. The venue (Five Crowns) was so quaint and had a lovely traditional English cottage feel to it. I think this would be a great spot for brides who really love tradition and are also looking for a rustic English setting for their wedding.
Every room has a grand fireplace and tons of wooden accents on the walls and decor. It literally feels like you are stepping into the 1800’s. Roni and Zach’s ceremony took place in the lovely outdoor garden in the back of the venue. It had an arbor with flowers and a very private feeling to the spot. If any other wedding or event takes place on your day, this area is pretty secluded so you wouldn’t have to worry about unwanted guests coming to check out your party
The location of Five Crowns itself lends itself well to any out of town guests you may have as hotels are a mere 3 miles away. The main street area is also nearby with tons of shopping and restaurants. The coordinator whom I worked with was extremely well organized and ready to assist whenever we needed.
But that’s enough about how great this location is…Roni & Zach’s wedding went down without a hitch! The weather was perfect, the food was divine, and their love just emanated so strongly throughout their day. Toni was such a calm bride! It always makes me smile when I have a calm bride because it does make my day go so much smoother. She was up for anything we wanted to do with the images. I think she really was just happy to be getting married to the man of her dreams, anything else was just the icing on the already amazing cake she would be eating!
Zach’s expression when he first set his eyes on Roni was something I will never forget. It was as if he was amazed and relieved all at the same time. His Best Man definitely gave light to this during his speech when he mentioned how they were all thrilled he had found Roni. Sometimes love doesn’t come as quickly as we want it to, but when it finally arrives, it’s better than we could have ever hoped for.
Once the ceremony was over, the guests were greeted with a wonderful 3 course meal and some delicious cake….oh my that cake was so sweet! I really enjoyed taking pictures of it, too! Well enough of my rambling, check out the pictures!
