Preston & Jess’s Wedding: San Clemente

Jan 13, 2017

When Jess & Preston’s first date turned into an all day hang out they knew something was different. In fact all of their first dates went like that. They didn’t want their time together to end because it felt so natural . On December 10th they made the commitment to spending the rest of their lives together.

The clouds hung low but the spirits were hight for this San Clemente wedding. The morning was slow, and there was no hiccup that ruffled Jess’s feathers. The zipper on one of her bridesmaids dresses broke? No biggie. We’ll just sow it up. The hair appointment went late? Don’t sweat it. We’ll just take the groomsmen group photos first. The Flower girls look adorable but they just need a little lip color.  

Jess was as calm and collected as brides come. Do you want to know how she managed this? She had her eye on the prize. Today was about marrying the man she loved and celebrating with the people she loved. As long as that happens this day will be a success. And it was. It was a beautiful and wonderful success!
