The “First look” or Reveal is without a doubt one of the most touching parts of the bride and grooms wedding day experience. If your photographer or coordinator is trying to talk you in to doing this before your wedding, listen to them! As evidenced by Lisa and John’s images here, beautifully captured by Bryan Miller Photography, the emotion is real, and it is heartfelt.  The benefits of the reveal are many, it is private, it is emotional, it allows the couple to be in the moment, and often it saves precious time at the reception allowing the couple to join in on the fun and shorten their post ceremony photography. 

 John and Lisa’s wedding and following reception was fun, it was poignant and moving, and it was full of excellent details.  Lisa left nothing out of her day, including a very lovely Cigar bar for her new groom and groomsman.

They also included their dogs as ring bearers which is one reason why The Temecula Creek Inn is so wonderful (they are dog friendly!) among many reasons such as this new and creative Family style dinner program. Yum! They had inspired signage, gorgeous flowers by Sweet Sentiments, and an adorable bridal party, and of course a father daughter dance that would make even the most seasoned coordinator cry.

Finally to top everything off the Cakes (there were 10 luscious and amazing cakes) were just too good to be true all made by Sweet Lady Jane Bakery  (there are locations all over OC and LA). There was lemon, double decadent chocolate, carrot cake, hummingbird cake and just too many to describe and nobody could eat just one slice.  

Lisa and John will always be a great remembrance of why I do what I do. So much love!
