Murrieta Wedding Sneak Peek: Alex +Jessica

You might remember this couple from their engagement session at anthropomorphic and sculpted land of Joshua National Park. Alex and Jessica’s wedding day took place at the “Gem of the Valley”- Murietta, California. It was magnificent land blessed with verdant open spaces dotted with towering oak trees and sycamores. It’s the perfect location to host an entire wedding day, from the preparations through the party. 

Their wedding was one that we had been looking forward to. Alex and Jessica are couple that’s exceptionally easy to love. They were gorgeous people who were genuinely kind, and unapologetically saccharine towards each other.

Our team photographed both bride and groom preparations on that day. It has a fabulous space where our couple can go and prepare ahead of their big day. One of the things we always love about wedding morning is seeing the dress of our bride has chosen and the style they went for. Jessica’s gorgeous bridal dress was something that fits her personality ad her style. She had a few butterflies at the start but the flurry of smiles, hugs and all got down to the job of getting ready to have an amazing day.  

It was swiftly followed by the wedding ceremony. It felt like the whole world was speechless as they looked at each other for the first time as husband and wife. The bride and groom exchanged their vows in front of all their friends and family.

After the nuptials, the couple mingled with their guest at the reception. The couple designed the day to look exactly like them. The day was so relaxed and full of genuine moments. We went for a wander to have some photos – relaxed and natural images. We love when couple has so much love between them that it shows naturally in every photograph. The weather was perfect for the afternoon drinks reception and everyone was in a fine mode, this lovely atmosphere carried through to the evening followed by a proper party. 

It was such a great experience to be part of this happy celebration. We really felt like one of the family. Alex and Jessica were so welcoming, so joyful and a real laugh around. Marriage isn’t a destination, it’s a journey, and we know their journey is going to be awesome.

Here are some of the images from that wonderful special day.

Rory + Mary Wedding Video Highlights

These days, ending up with someone you knew from high school is very rare. Not only time but also distance can be a real challenge in keeping the relationship and passion alive. However, Mary and Rory are a living testament that with perseverance and committing yourself whole-heartedly to the one person who ignites your soul, there can still be a true fairy tale story in this modern day.

Right at the beginning, Mary and Rory knew exactly what they wanted. While it does not appear that they cared that much about details (but their wedding reception is so elaborate though!), they are very specific that what they really wanted are photos that depicts how the official union of their souls was celebrated. As we captured great photos, we also captured those laughter and tears of joy in a form of video. 

This is by far our most challenging wedding for 2016. We only had ourselves (Russ and Thet) do both photo and video at the same time. Thank God we got a last-minute assistant (Karina) because otherwise, we are not sure how we are going to pull this off. Mary and Rory are the last of our non-official video clients who took the risk and believe that we can capture great video of their wedding day. Moving onwards though, our video services will only come with 2 videographers. Hehehe. 

This wedding highlight will make you smile and cry at the same. We hope you enjoy watching it.
