Before their wedding at KLEA Banquet Hall, we started the day with Leticia and her bridesmaids at her house in Bakersfield. They were super chill and relaxed as they were finishing up hair and makeup. Everyone was on time the day was running smooth. Having a coordinator makes a huge difference. Gio & Leticia’s daughter is the sweetest. As soon as I arrived she complimented me. She was helpful and respectful for the whole day. Gio’s sisters were excited to see their only brother get married. Gio & his sisters have a very close-knit bond.
Leticia & Gio chose Monji Gardens to take their bridal portraits. I LOVE this venue. They opted out of a first look, so we had to work closely with Irma, their coordinator to make sure they didn’t see each other during their bridal party pictures.
The ceremony & reception took place at KLEA. When we arrived, the venue was already starting to fill with family and friends.
Their ceremony was fun, short, and sweet. Danny Hill did a fantastic job at officiating their wedding. After toasts and parent dancing, they shared their first dance as husband and wife as the sun was starting to set behind them. The glow was amazing. Kevin Rush was the MC of the night as they kicked off to some cumbia music. Gio and Leticia, it was a pleasure to witness the love between you two. May God bless your family and your marriage.
