Set at the stunning Mission San Juan Capistrano where it feels like you've just been transported to Rome this gorgeous engagement shoot by CAROL LY PHOTOGRAPHY is as stylish as it is romantic. Chicago native Michael and Californian Vivian decided to have their engagement session in Vivian's hometown of Orange County. They wanted a mixture of old rustic charm like an Italian getaway, and native, desert landscape that is quintessentially Southern Californian and the Mission had everything from the ruined beauty of the old stone and brick structure, to the windy paths of green succulents and cactus. Vivian's beautiful white lace dress by FOR LOVE AND LEMONS paired with nude heels was perfect for the venue!
