I had the pleasure of driving down to SoCal to photograph Therese and Jeffrey's wedding at the Franciscan Gardens this past June and it was such a dream. The two reached out back in 2020 for their engagement photos and later that year, came back to discuss their wedding in SoCal. They originally planned for a June 2021 wedding, but like many couples, they had to make the difficult decision to wait another year. While the two had to wait another year to tie the knot in front of their family and friends, it was definitely worth the wait.

Therese had a very specific vision, which she sought out Candice from Milk Events to make her dreams real. She saw lush, beautiful, pink florals with hints of blue and Azalea from Wild and Behold Florals brought that vision to life. Everything was so beautiful at the Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano, but no one would ever know we were actually in the middle of a busy downtown area. The tall greenery surrounded the guests, taking them away from the bustling streets right next door.

Special thanks to the amazing vendors!
