And when Josh got down on one knee at the National Mall
Welcome to Part Two of Minh and Cathy’s oh-so-elegant wedding reception at the Park Hyatt Aviara!

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 I firmly believe in slowing our couples down. You see, a wedding day can feel like a blur of emotions if you don’t take the time to intentionally breathe it in, take notice of the little things… and savor the moment. So after Troy and Tara said “I do” overlooking the lake (see

Oh my goodness, we ADORE everything about this day! If you’ve seen even a glimpse of Will and Meghan’s wedding at Rancho Valencia, you know one thing for sure: It’s oh-so-unbelievably-beautiful. (And if you haven’t yet – quickly go back and see Part One for yourself!) From the fresh blush florals to the romantic table
