Welcome to Part Two of Garrett and Jacquie’s oh-so-gorgeous wedding at Rancho Valencia! This one was dripping with so many #TYdreamie details that Jeff and I were truly giddy! It was a SoCal wedding with strong East Coast vibes (and lots of East Coast guests!), which is totally our favorite! I mean… seersucker and Sperry
When Garrett met Jacquie, he was enamored and persistent and very sure of one thing: he had never met anyone quite like her.

As the sun was setting, Omair and Christy simply held each other, closed their eyes, and listened to the sounds of the ocean waves. At last, they were married… and in that moment, nothing else mattered. Of all the sights from this couple’s beautiful wedding day, this was one of our favorites: two souls completely
