San Juan Capistrano Wedding, Part One | Jeff and Kristina

POSTED IN : Weddings
FILED UNDER :

Jeff and Kristina live in a world of beautiful people. Their picture-perfect (and shall we say, fairytale?) love story starts way back in high school when both of them worked at Disneyland. That’s right, folks.

When the rest of us normal folks first peer into Jeff and Kristina’s dreamy universe, they’re like the most interesting couple on earth. Not only did they spend their summers dancing through the streets of the happiest place on earth, but she went to Harvard and he became a firefighter. I bet you anything they can make 20 minute brownies in 15 minutes.

But when you really squish your nose against the glass window of their world, what you see beneath the beautiful, charming, and utterly heart-melting smiles is a tireless boy recklessly pursuing a wickedly smart girl. And their wedding day meant more than just a pretty celebration with friends. It was a testament to his pursuit and the strength of their hearts. With the long distances and the growing up and the life changes over the years of their relationship, Jeff did whatever it took to hold on to Kristina’s incredible heart and bring them to this day when they could hold on to each other forever.

San Juan Capistrano has always been one of our favorite places for weddings and Jeff and Kristina’s uber-dreamy and airy wedding at The Villa San Juan Capistrano lived up to every delightful expectation. Michelle at The Villa was a dream to work with all day as well as the boys at Paperback Weddings who rocked the video.

The details will totally melt your heart tomorrow and the First Look today is tear-worthy for sure (tissues totally necessary), but the day started at the the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point where we met the girls getting ready.
