Marriott Hotel, Costa Mesa Wedding Photography | Nicole & Brian

I (Gavin) am a big nerd at heart, so it always gets me excited when a couple knows a programming language that I’m doing a coding project in (in this case it was Lua).  Both Nicole and Brian are both techies, but more importantly they are a really cute couple together (couples that code together, stay together?).  You can see it in the photos, in their smiles, and in the love of their wedding day.

They chose the Costa Mesa Mariott (near the Segerstrom Center of the Arts on Avenue of the Arts) for their wedding ceremony and reception, with getting ready in the hotel.  It’s really nice having everything in one spot sometimes, since it makes the day more relaxed and easy-going.  It was also a small wedding (around 70 people), so you can also see the intimacy and interaction in a smaller group.

While the ceremony in the courtyard of the Costa Mesa Mariott was happening, there was an artist that was painting the ballroom inside the Mariott Hotel.  This would eventually become a painting of their first dance, with the couple being the last to be painted.


Here is the ballroom at the Mariott Hotel (Costa Mesa).  It’s the smaller one, since this was an intimate wedding.

During the reception, we pulled our couple outside for some quick photos in near the pond right outside the Mariott Hotel.  We did low-light photography to pull out colors from all of the artificial lighting in the surrounding plaza.
