Amazing union at the Bakersfield Country Club

   Pink and red rose petals fell from the sky as Jori and Rene shared their first kiss as husband and wife. Ok, it was someone on the second floor, but that sounds really nice. It was epic.

We met Jori's mom Denise through her job at Weatherbys years ago. I loved her mom then. When she wrote me years later about her daughters wedding I was more than excited. I already knew Jori would be a ML Bride just by her mom's personality. At no surprise, they were just alike  beautiful, smart, and gorgeous. 

Jori has a very bubbly personality. She is tons of fun. We grew very close during the planning of her wedding. When it came to their engagement session we were already best of friends. Their engagement session was perfect. When I met Rene he was quiet at first, but warmed up pretty quick. He is HILARIOUS. I just adored his personality too. I knew these two were going to be fun. 

Jori & Rene have two beautiful daughters together. The love between these four is strong. I love how they spent a lot of their evening dancing with their girls. If you didn't know my husband and I have 4 daughters, so I am a sucker for lil girls. I probably cried a few times but don't tell anyone. 

The whole reception and ceremony were covered with gorgeous flowers from White Oak Florists. Rene and his groomsmen were enjoying each others company. The girls were also having fun getting ready. Their daughters looked adorable in their robes. The ceremony was short but sweet. Jori looked outstanding in her wedding gown. After Family pictures, we hopped on a golf cart and captured some amazing photos of Jori and Rene. During the cocktail hour, it was the cutest thing Jori's Grandpa played the accordion. It was a precious sight to see. Their love just shines through their faces straight from their hearts. We enjoyed our time dancing with them before we said our goodbyes.

We are honored to have attended your special day, and we especially loved witnessing all the generational love. Your grandparents are so sweet. It was an amazing union between two loving families. Enjoy this new chapter in your lives and enjoy your awesome honeymoon. We love you guys and your families!
