Geode Inspired Wedding at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel

Geode Inspired Wedding at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel


Fred + Leanne had a vision for a wedding day that from beginning to end was filled with meaningful elements. A geode inspired wedding at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel might sound merely sound like a fun idea to you but it meant everything to them. The Bride and the Groom looked back to their childhood to find the inspiration they were looking for.

Leanne’s grew up attending her father’s company Christmas parties every year. And guess where they were held? In the very same room at the Ritz Carlton where they had their reception. That room was filled with so many memories from the past, and some of the very same people that watched her grow up at those parties filled the very same seats at her wedding.

The Groom’s dad was jewelry so he grew up among lovely jewels, rocks, and geodes. Along with gems being a part of Fred’s childhood norm, he would even go with his father every year to a jewel convention to help his dad handpick the gems. So it was only fitting that Fred and Leanne would road trip out together to the very same convention to pick out the gems for their own wedding.

And of course, we can’t forget the view. Their ceremony site was overlooking the stunning coastline and even this was meaningful to the couple. Leanne and Fred aren’t exactly what you would call beach people but this doesn’t make them love the ocean any less. They often frequent parks that overlook the water.

There are so many more meaningful and thoughtful elements from sunglasses for their guests, to Fred’s suite lined with images of their time together, they thought of everything!

It is so hard for me to explain to you how truly sweet this couple is. They are two of the most kindhearted people I’ve ever met and it was such a joy to come along this journey with them. Congrats Leanne + Fred!!!
