Feb 22, 2017 | By: Will You Marry Me Photography
Lisa and Angel’s wedding was an absolutely breathtaking wedding at Bella Terrace Estates, a horse ranch, in Jamul, CA. The estate overlooked mountains and rolling hills everywhere the eye could see. When I arrived at the property I knew it was going to be a fun day filled will fun ideas, and horses.
Bella Terrace Estates converted the garage to a room for Lisa to get hair and make-up done. The guys got ready in a guesthouse on the lower half of the property. Lisa was surrounded with so much love from her girls and her mother and in-law’s to be and While they were with her she was given a gift from Angel; a watch with a letter to her. I’m pretty sure her heart was exploding with gratitude at this point, because mine sure was and I was just overwhelmed with the love that was felt in that room. Then it was time to get her dressed and ready to walk down the aisle. While Lisa’s mom and bridesmaids all made sure to help her get ready in those final moments, the groomsmen hung out playing a little Billiards before the ceremony began. Rob had a fun time capturing the groomsmen in a relaxed state.
The ceremony overlooked the mountains and rolling hills. I remember Angel’s face when Lisa walked down the aisle. First it was a look for excitement waiting for her to turn to come down the aisle. Then I saw his breath being taken away and tears of happiness as he saw his beautiful bride walking towards him. After the ceremony we took family photos in front of a beautiful wood door. Then we took the wedding party photos in an area where horses train. They entire bridal party was fun to work with as they laughed and played during the photo session. Then men all wore hero T-shirts under their tuxes and did a hero pose for us.
Then it was time for the bride and groom portraits! When I was working with Lisa and Angel, we had the opportunity to capture a beautiful photo of them kissing in the horse barn before the sun completely set, and capture photos of them with a stunning horse on the property. The photographs are beautiful as the couple and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
As the sun was saying goodbye, the entered there reception located outside under the beautiful September sky. They had a dance floor filled with people having fun, an elegant three-tier wedding cake; and for the guest - the hangover kits with Advil, band-aids and mints for the adults, and hot chocolate in tubes with and without marshmallows for the kids. It was truly a perfect day! Lisa and Angel are completely made for one another.
Lisa and Angel, your wedding day was perfect! I am so beyond happy that I got to be there to witness the beginning of your next big adventure. Thank you a million times over for being so incredible. I hope this new adventure together gets better each and every day. Your joy is contagious and I absolutely loved being surrounded by it on your wedding day. Cheers to many more decades of love and happiness!
