What a treat it was to shoot Daniella and Manny's wedding at The Hacienda in Santa Ana, California. I shot here many years ago, and it was so fun to be back for Daniella and Manny’s big day. They are truly two of the sweetest souls and I'm so happy I got to be present on their special day.
There are so many beautiful sights at The Hacienda, between the warm ambiance and lush greenery and florals, but Daniella stood out beyond anything. Her mermaid-style dress had gorgeous blush undertones, with an amazing tulle skirt. The dress also featured delicate floral lace and beautiful beading on the bodice. The back featured a button closure, all in all, the dress was stunning and suited her perfectly!
During their first look, Manny was overcome with how beautiful his bride looked. In the photos, you can see even him admiring Daniella's wedding gown! Daniella and Manny’s love is so sweet, and when you see them together, you can’t help but smile.
I feel like we have to talk about the colors at this wedding, because wow! Daniella’s bridesmaids and Maid of Honor wore deep red dresses, and the groomsmen sported navy suits with crisp white shirts, and a tie. The color palette of this wedding complemented the venue perfectly.

The Hacienda is a seriously beautiful wedding venue. It’s incredibly warm and inviting, and has the most stunning lighting, especially at the golden hour. The outside feels like you’re in The Secret Garden, as it’s filled with countless bushes, trees, and flowers. At night, it’s lit up with lights and it feels ultra romantic.
The inside is truly difficult to put into words due to its beauty. Golden light shines through the many windows, and just like the outside, it’s filled with plants and greenery. The couple’s table had a floral display filled with white roses and candles. Literally everything about this venue is breathtaking.
When it comes to The Hacienda, it’s all about all the little details. There are fountains with running water and benches, while the inside portion boasts stone floors, gigantic potted plants, rustic tables, wooden beams.
Then came the dancing, everyone has so much fun at Daniella and Manny’s reception. Especially after this wedding, I can't wait to shoot more weddings at this venue!
The Hacienda is a dreamy, romantic venue but also warm and inviting to all who enter. So if you are looking for a wedding venue, I would definitely say this one is worth considering!
