As I was prepping this blog post, I was getting so excited for SPRING! I’m ready for the green to come back and for all of the lovely weddings on my calendar this year. Tori and Jose’s wedding at Shangri La Event Center was beautiful and heartfelt. This venue is stunning in late April and May with all of the green trees and this lovely little orchard. Sadly they have since cut down this gorgeous willow tree that I was obsessed with, but the orchard is still there thankfully. The bride put a lot of work into the DIY elements of the day and it really allowed the emotional elements of this wedding to shine through. The day began with the bride getting ready at the venue and we coordinate a first look at one of the bridges on the pond. Jose’s reaction was so sweet. I think my favorite moment from the day was Tori walking down the aisle. She was just so happy and stunning. The look on her face (you’ll see in the photos below) was priceless.
