Advice from the couple:
Remember that ultimately the day is about you both. Try not to let everyone else’s opinion get to you. Also, the day goes by so fast, so don’t sweat the small stuff or anything that may go wrong.
The truth is, your guests likely will not notice if there is something that went wrong. Enjoy your day to the fullest!
First Dance Song
First Look: “All of Me” by John Legend
Our photographer, Char, had a great idea to sneak off and do a first dance solo where it was just us and the photographer. It was so special and I am glad we did it. All of Me by John Legend.

Any vendor(s) you'd like to rave about?
The venue, Casa V, was the perfect location for our wedding. Natalie Vojvoda, her family and staff were great and made our day so special. Everything was beautiful and so dreamy. Our wedding day went beyond our expectations. Casa V took care of everything from planning, decor, to the food and day of coordinating.
Also, our photographer, Char Perez and her husband Tony were just amazing to work with. They are so talented and captured our day perfectly. They made our guests feel special and comfortable as well. They were amazing and we absolutely loved them!
How would you describe the ceremony? Was there anything specific that made it unique to you as a couple?
The bride’s cousin (Lupita) designed a beautiful ceremony and she got ordained just for us! Everything was intimate and we got married in the evening surrounded by candle light. We had a special tribute space for our loved ones who had passed as we wanted to include them, it was beautiful.
What was the best part of your day – from each spouse’s perspective, please?
Bride: Exchanging Vows
Groom: Having our family being a part of our day
What would you have done differently if you had the chance?
Not have worried so much about what could go wrong or what everyone’s opinion would be other than ours.
