La Valencia Wedding, Part One | Jeff and Elena

POSTED IN : Resort, Seaside, Weddings
FILED UNDER :

Jeff and Elena are connected in every way possible – with their hearts and souls and emotions.

It’s a love that goes beyond the surface, but way down deep to their core. Jeff and Elena truly see each other – the most raw and unedited versions of themselves.

And it’s their crazy-kind-of-connection that makes them absolutely crazy for each other. The kind of (good) crazy that will travel cross-country with each other just two months after meeting… the kind that is oh-so-obviously soulmate material.

(You have to read more of their story in their engagement session post!).

As Jeff prepared to see his gorgeous bride, he had welled-up eyes and shaky hands from joy and excitement – and a bit of disbelief that all this was *actually* happening. He felt like the LUCKIEST guy in the world to be marrying Elena.

Jeff and Elena chose to say their vows at Mary, Star of the Sea, the same beautiful sanctuary where they attend weekly. The walls of this church hold people they love dearly and reverent traditions that run deeply in their hearts – so it was the most perfect place possible for Jeff and Elena to joyfully say “I do.”

Just down the road at the lovely La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, the newlyweds celebrated into the night with their incredible family and friends, who had traveled in from all over the country to celebrate their wedding day. More of those moments coming soon…for now, we’re sharing the the first half of their perfect day!
