Rancho Valencia Wedding, Part One | Vali and Lauren

POSTED IN : Resort, Weddings
FILED UNDER :

For the classic-kind-of love that Vali and Lauren share, their wedding celebration was every bit as gorgeously classic as it was deeply meaningful.

Vali and Lauren said ‘I do’ in the church at University of San Diego, the university they both attended. It was within the halls of this campus where Vali and Lauren put in long hours of studying, chasing their dreams and ambitions and putting their brilliant brains to work – but it’s also where they fell deeply in love.

It’s where two hearts melded into one.

These two are the sweetest together – always cuddling, laughing, and caught in loving glances (check out all the snuggles at their Windansea Engagement!).

And on top of their adorable way together, the piece that made their wedding day so meaningful was the way that Vali and Lauren chose to point it all back and honor their families.

Vali and Lauren both have incredible parents – and it was not lost on them how great their influence has been on their lives.

Their lessons of hard work, determination, and courage — these foundations that both families were built on — they permeated the hearts of Vali and Lauren forever. It’s shaped how they’ll chase their dreams. It’s shaped how they’ll chase each other.

The newlyweds took a moment to toast to their parents, and those moments of acknowledgement hung with such deep emotion that filled up all of our hearts!

All of the unbelievably amazing details from their reception at Rancho Valencia are coming in Part Two, and today I’m sharing the oh-so-meaningful moments from the ceremony in the Founders Chapel at USD.

Enjoy this seriously sweet couple my friends! They are the kind of amazing people that Jeff and I simply adore!
