Engagement Session at the fabulous Mission Inn, Riverside
A while back, my clients and I visited one of my favorite venue to shoot their engagement session. Which venue was it, you ask?
It’s the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, located at about 60 miles from downtown Los Angeles, in the heart of downtown Riverside. This is a truly special place in Southern California, because former US President Nixon had his wedding held at this very same hotel; President Reagan had his honeymoon here; and eight other former presidents were stopped by this place, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft,Herbert Hoover, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Gerald Ford, and George W. Bush.
Having a wedding or taking engagement photos there at the Mission Inn is like having a journey in time. The Mission Inn was built all the way back in 1902, and constructed in a wide variety of architectural styles. Mainly influenced by the Spanish Colonial and Renaissance styles.
Therefore, when you are looking to take engagement photo or pre wedding photo, or even having your wedding there at the Mission Inn Hotel. You may want to prepare your wardrobe more tailored to vintage style, or very modern. As booth style dresses would make it look timeless in this venue.
Without further ado, here are the pictures taken in an engagement session from Mission Inn.
