Brittany and Tyler’s Los Willows Wedding Day

A chance meeting while Brittany was visiting her cousin for her birthday and Tyler was out on the town with his best friend (best man), these two crossed paths and a spark was lit. After a year of dating long distance, Brittany relocated to be with Tyler and as she put it, “begin our lives together”. And then at the end of a fun day exploring Ponte Winery in Temecula Tyler got down on one knee and asked Brittany to marry him… she said that apparently she never said yes but it was implied.

Both arrived to the lush Los Willows Estate with their best friends and family, each party getting ready in the bride and groom suites.  You could feel the anticipation as they chose to wait until the ceremony to see each other and once they were finally side by side the energy was electric.  They shared that they really compliment each other, Tyler bringing out Brittany’s adventurous side and adds excitement to her life while Brittany has taught Tyler to focus on goals and that he can be whatever he wants to be.  Once they were officially married it was time to celebrate. And a surprise first dance with dry ice for the groom kicked off the reception.

LeeAnna and Jake's Wedding Day

Ah, LeeAnna and Jake... where do we start with this fabulous down to earth fun-loving couple and their dream wedding day...

(and it seems serendipitous to us that their wedding is the first we have posted since the pandemic began in 2020.)

 

Words at this point don't necessarily have to be spoken anymore to share the emotions and patience that 2020 required from the world.

We very much recall all the conversations with couples as the news hit about shutdowns and specifically remember talking to LeeAnna and Jake 60 days out from their original June 2020 wedding date and all of us coming to terms with the fact that another year of waiting seemed inevitable. LeeAnna and Jake focused their energies together on enduring this journey with the hopes that one day their dream would come to fruition... in the words of the bride, there were a lot of lows with very little highs during the shifts and pivots of COVID-19.

Patience prevailed...

To witness them celebrating with their family and friends was like watching a dream come true.

What we would have taken for granted pre-pandemic magnified the fact that their wedding day was here.

This journey we have all been through is a personal one and left us feeling amiss and made it hard to share any "highs" we may have experienced through a global pandemic.

Jake and LeeAnna's wedding day meant as much to us as it meant to them!

A true symbol that love is the strongest bond and if you can hold on tight and never let go of your dreams, there is a rainbow on the other side.

Congrats Mr and Mrs Thompson, you are one of a kind and we will always remember the laughter, joy and DANCING that you never for a moment took for granted.
