Rebecca and Barrett’s Pala Mesa Resort Wedding

These two happened to cross paths just at the right time and the right place and after a surprise proposal on a trip to Mexico, they started planning their dream summer wedding day at the beautiful Pala Mesa Resort in the hills of Southern California.  And it was a perfect summer day, everyone was busy preparing for the ceremony, girls in their robes, boys and their cigars.  We had so much fun hanging out with their family and wedding party entourage, never a dull moment, lots of laughs and smiles.  And of course a few tears, especially when the father of the bride walked his daughter down the aisle to her future husband.  Just after the first kiss, their nephews couldn’t wait to ring the bell, sounding off their new marriage.  We can’t wait to share their photos and highlight video, we truly are so honored to be part of their day!

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.
