Saina and Shane | Hidden Oaks Wedding | Rancho Cucamonga

Saina and Shane’s wedding was held at the hidden gem of the Inland Empire – Hidden Oaks Retreat. I could seriously shoot all my future weddings there and be totally content!! If they ever hire an official photographer, sign me up! Everything about this day was amazing.. the staff, the location, the light, and of course, Saina and Shane.  I adore this couple.
And I could go on but I know Saina and Shane are just as excited to see the photos as I am to share.. so lets just get right to it! Please be patient.. this post is ladened with photos!

I love it when a bride and groom take advantage of a First Look, a moment shared between the two of them before the ceremony. Saina approached Shane (with her brother helping with the dress) and I LOVE Shane’s excitement when he realizes its time to see his bride for the first time.

Most grooms who partake in a First Look admit that they are more relaxed after… I’d say Shane is looking pretty happy here!

During the ceremony, while Saina and Shane were praying, the bridal party had a little surprise in store.. notice the guy in the background adjusting his mustache? He doesn’t normally have a mustache!
