This beautiful couple were married on December 30th at The First Congregational Church of Riverside and held the reception at The Mission Inn. All the Christmas lights were lit up downtown and of course the Mission Inn was covered in lights.
Because it would be dark after the ceremony Allison and Patrick decided to see each other before to take advantage of the light and get great pictures. I personally like it when couples see each other before because it gives us more time to take photos and I love doing a “first look” where we set it up for a romantic private look and special time together before the hustle and bustle of the day.
This was awesome! They had a bag piper march them and their guests a short walk from the church down the street to the Mission Inn.
