Magnificent Coastal Bluff Wedding at the Shore Cliff in Pismo, Ca

Justin was so excited to see his bride during the first look, that the anticipation was driving him crazy. Justin and Blaire have been good friends since they were children. It was special to see how loving the wedding party was towards each other because they are all good childhood friends.

     We started the day with Justin getting ready. He was so eager to see his gorgeous bride to be. Everyone was having a good time relaxing in rooms with amazing ocean views and sounds of waves crashing below. Blaire's room was located directly above Justin's room, so you can imagine what a fun night they had. 

     The first look was amazing. Blaire's beauty captivated Justin, and the tears of joy came. Walking down the aisle was no different. Justin is a great guy with a big heart and full of love for his bride. 

     The ceremony was perfect. Some seagulls were soaring above looking in on the action. The sky was blue and a misty breeze was in the air. They confirmed their love in front of God, family, and friends. Simply put it was a gorgeous ceremony.      

     The reception was so much fun for these two lovebirds. They really like to dance and have a good time. The food was adorned and delicious. The Dj kept the party alive all the way until the end. Lastly, the fished with a sparkler exit that was grand.

A delightful celebration at Rancho Yeguada Trujillo in New Cayuma

A delightful celebration at Rancho Yeguada Trujillo in New Cayuma


   Otilia looked lovely in her dark blue dress with gold accents. People looked proper wearing traditional Mexican attire. It felt like we were in a retro but new style Mexican theme party for Oti. The dancing was very fun and traditional. Even the little ones were dressed to impress and knew how to dance the Zapateado dance style. The colors were lively. The night could not have turned out better at the Rancho Yegunda Trujillo. 

     Otilia's grandmother was waiting for her as Oti was getting her hair and makeup done at the Pananche salon. The next stop was to capture all the lovely details at Oti's home. Right away they treated us like part of the family. They are very hospitable, and we thank you for that. 

     After the last minute details were taken care of. Oti and her party were ready to start the day. They were riding in a stretch white Dodge Charger with suicide doors and a red carpet entrance. This young lady had the time of her life. The church Immaculate Conception was adorable. The staff there is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed an intimate ceremony with humor and laughter.

     Rancho Yegunda Trujillo was the perfect place for Oti's birthday celebration because the rodeo was a perfect fit for a Mexican theme party. This ranch also holds a special place for the family, so it worked itself out perfectly. All the decorations were full of colors and full of life they were Mexican traditional in nature. The food was delicious and we received plenty. The clothes were a gorgeous blend of traditional, but with a new twist. It was all very beautiful. Otilia's dress was no exception it was grand. Her dress came in layers and as she danced more into the night the layers came off. It was such a cool and gorgeous dress. It even had pockets! Who does that?

     They did not get tired of dancing, and everyone was having fun. There were amazing live performances from two bands, and the DJ had all the right music. Oti's and her court of honor performed a beautiful dance piece. Oti even surprised us with a gorgeous upbeat dance accompanied by Baila Con Migo dancers. We could tell all the generations from young to elder love to dance. We had a blast.

Sophisticated outdoor Ceremony at The Junior League of Bakersfield

Sophisticated outdoor Ceremony at The Junior League of Bakersfield


Jennifer looked gorgeous on her wedding day, and she did it all natural. Barely any makeup. She was glowing with natural beauty in her stunning white gown. Her long brown hair just held voluminous curves despite the temperature. Her bride's maids complimented her very well in their champagne and light pink dresses.  

     We started the day with Alex getting ready with family and close friends. He was looking handsome in his Finos blue suit with a pink bow tie accent and dark brown shoes. His father could not be more proud of his son. His groomsmen were completely supportive and well-behaved gentlemen. They sported light grey suits with cream accents and dark brown shoes. The bride's maids were beautiful and very supportive.

     Everyone at the ceremony loves and supports Jennifer and Alex because they endured temperatures of up to 111 degrees. Despite the heat, family and friends enjoyed an intimate ceremony. My favorite part about weddings is to see the relationships between family and friends unfold before my very eyes. Jennifer's father was SO CUTE when he became emotional during the father & daughter dance.

     We were lucky to be at the Junior League of Bakersfield because a short burst of heavy rain fell over the guest and the DJ. After some adjustments, we moved the party indoors. DJ Noe G. had the whole party dancing the night away. There were some sudden winds, but nothing too major. There was a huge branch that fell and literally missed my car by a foot. Everyone one was okay and no one was hurt. The weather might have been unpredictable, but one thing is for sure we foresee their family supporting each other until the test of time. Their grandparents were so cute. We had a blast documenting this good looking couple.

Maravilla Garden is a little piece of paradise in Camarillo

Maravilla Garden is a little piece of paradise in Camarillo

The costal air was cool as the summer heat settled over the Maravilla Gardens in Camarillo CA. Meet Breanna and Bryan these two love birds have known each other for quite sometime. Bryan is a good friend of the family and it was only a matter of time before Bryan was drawn to Breanna's beauty.

     Captivating blue dresse's for the bridesmaids and a gray tux with blue accents for the Groom. Yellow accents on a white boquet was Breanna's accessory to compliment her enchanting white gown. This elegant & romantic love story all started with respect and a chivalrous question? Can I date your sister? Bryan is one of a dying breed because he loved Breanna so much he was willing to succumb to anything Breanna's family threw his way. It was not long before everyone approved of Bryan dating Breanna.

     I can attest apart from being attractive these two families were very loving and they care so much about all their closets members. The day started easy with prep at The Courtyard Marriott hotel. Breanna and her girls were relaxing having a good time getting ready. Little things here and there almost had Breanna in tears, but we assured her everything was going to be ok. There are so many moving parts to a wedding that its hard to execute everything perfectly. Breanna is a perfectionist and Maravilla gardens the venue she chose was the perfect location to get married. 

     Breanna shared an emotional first look with her father, and we can tell she is loved so much by all her family. Right after that she shared a first look with Bryan. Bryan was speechless to see how beautiful his bride to be looked in her white gown. Immediately after their intimate moment we began with some bridal portraits of him and her. The first look is a good option because you get 40% more pictures of just you and your honey. Ladies if you are worried about ruining the reaction? Don't be, the ceremony has a totally different feel than the first look. 

     Bryan was really feeling the moment when his bride to be was being escorted down the isle by her father. This moment is the most emotional for a groom. After they both shared their vows in front of their friends and family Breanna and Bryan opted for more pictures during cocktail hour. They really value their memories and made sure to capture every moment and family member they could. The venue was gorgeous beyond measure, and the food and music was exquisite. The most tangible memory we have are pictures and video, and those are the memories our children's children can cherish for a generations to come. Breanna and Bryan really valued their substancial memories so they made a point to take as many pictures with each other their family and friends. 

     They played the shoe game, and they danced with their relatives. These two are so loved, and their music choice was absolutely exquisite because their DJ Jerry Gutierrez with GTZ entertainment played everything for everyone he definitely aims to please and please is what he did. Everyone danced the night away to their favorite tunes. Breanna and Bryan shared a sparkler exit at the end and swiftly made their get away. We hugged and watched them ride off happily into the night as newly weds.
