Alyssa and Johanza had the most magical wedding at Lake Oak Meadows in Temecula , California. The floral designs by Nancy Lobo Designs were immaculate, mixing different shades of pink and cream in a way that fit perfectly into their fairytale wedding. The floral designs dressed up the ceremony centerpiece and complemented the pink and blue bridesmaid dresses flawlessly. I can’t forget to mention that the bride looked absolutely stunning in her mermaid-style Essence of Australia gown and Valentino flats that were fit for royalty. She even finished her bridal look off with a sparkling crown fit for a queen, or bride in this case. The groom looked dashing as well in his Indochino tux with a brown velvet jacket. The bride and groom snuck away from their bridal party to have their first look before they officially tie the knot. The groom’s face when he saw his bride for the first time was priceless. Johanza and Alyssa were filled with so much emotion and joy.
Their wedding ceremony felt like something straight out of a story book; the bride made a grand entrance on a horse-drawn carriage accompanied by the soft tunes of the harp. This was truly a magical moment that I got the honor to capture for Alyssa and Johanza. Once the wedding ceremony was over, the reception began in a memorable way as well. The groom and his backup dancers (I mean groomsmen) surprised his bride with a dance to NSync's Bye Bye Bye song. The two love birds personalized their decor with a glowing “To the moon and back sign” which is a way of saying you have infinite love for someone. It was an absolutely perfect way to celebrate the bride and groom joining their love in marriage.
Everything was flawless from the boba station to the way the bride and groom looked at each other. Alyssa and Johanza had the most romantic grand exit from their wedding laughing through a fountain of sparklers. I wouldn't trade being a wedding photographer and capturing amazing moments like these for anything.
