Jade and Nick’s Mountain Top Wedding Day

Jade and Nick are nature lovers, marathon runners, travelers, hikers, and most of all, best friends and so in love!  They were beyond excited to bring their family and friends to the top of Palomar Mountain for an adventurous wedding day.  The trek up the mountain was so fun for us, taking our Subaru off-roading is something we love to do.  The paved road turned into a dirt road and after a ton of twist and turns, we arrived to Harrison Serenity Ranch.  You could see right away why they fell in love with the venue, trees, birds and an amazing view of the valley below.  Family and friends arrived in shuttles and the anticipation for the ceremony was in the air.  Their siblings were their wedding party and their little dog, Cashew, of course was the ring bearer.  And there wasn’t a dry eye when Jade was escorted down the aisle by her mother and handed off to her soon to be husband.  Pastor Carlos officiated their mountain view ceremony followed with Jade and Nick’s personal vows and then the official pronouncement as husband and wife!  The celebration continued outdoors with a mix of bluegrass and classic music by the Richard Bernard Band.  Every wedding is such an adventure and it’s truly hard to put into words the love, the joy and the happiness these two share.  So, we will let the photos and their highlight movie do the talking! Thanks so much J & N, you two are amazing.

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.
