It was amazing to photograph Raquel and Jason’s Santa Ana wedding at The Hacienda. Southern California has so many beautiful wedding venues. Amongst them is The Hacienda in Orange County. This Santa Ana wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Raquel and Jason lucked out when they were able to get this venue. They originally had a different venue but were closed down during the beginning of the pandemic. This place is by far one of the beautiful Spanish venues in Southern California.
They didn’t have a first look but they had a first touch and it was so emotional and beautiful! First touches are moments between the couple before the ceremony. They are perfect for couples that don’t want a first look but still want an intimate moment together. During this moment, couples sometimes exchange gifts and that is what Raquel and Jason did.
One of the cool things about The Hacienda is that you can rent a Porsche for your photos. Raquel and Jason did and the photos couldn’t be any more romantic. Another of my favorite things about the Hacienda is that they recommend going around each table to take photos with your guests. This ensures you get a photo with everyone that went to your wedding.
