Rancho Valencia Wedding, Part Two | David and Lisa
We’ve arrived at Part Two of David and Lisa’s enchanting Rancho Valencia wedding, and boy-oh-boy do we have a TREAT for you, my friends! I have been so giddy to share this one with you!
(And if you haven’t already seen Part One, stop what you’re doing and go there now – you officially have permission.)
David and Lisa dreamed up a magical evening on Rancho Valencia’s sunrise terrace, and it was everything! This thoughtful couple ensured that every guest felt incredibly cared for, and even had a hand-written note waiting for every single guest, thanking them for all the ways they’d blessed their lives. It was such a meaningful gesture!
And oh my heavens, this reception space was WOW-worthy. (And unlike anything that’s been done at Rancho Valencia before!)
The illustrious Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings designed every last detail with skill and endless care, and curated the perfect collection of carpet, furniture, and lighting rentals that created the most romantic, enchanting world for the evening. Annette Gomez designed florals that had our jaws on the floor, Paula Mayer had every hair and eyelash in place, and the unstoppable duo Jenny and Scott of Quixotic Weddings captured the magical evening on film.
(Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see all of the other talented vendors!)
Top it all off with travel-themed details (they both love to travel AND each have their pilot’s license!), a romantic first dance, and an epic choreographed mashup, and you have yourself the best night EVAH!
Alright friends, pour yourself a mug of something delicious and settle in to enjoy this wedding! It’s a super special one!
David and Lisa: Jeff and I just couldn’t love you two more. Our hearts explode with gratitude and joy when we think back on your wedding day, and I don’t think that’s going to end any time soon! It was such a special day! Thank you for trusting us, and thank you for being endlessly kind and generous. We love you both to the moon and back!
