Canyon Golf Club Wedding – Luis and Jill

When I first met Jill and Luis at their Laguna Beach engagement session, I instantly fell in love with these two!

Well, it actually wasn’t an “engagement” session because they  previously eloped and they wanted to have a ceremony and reception to celebrate their love and commitment to each other publicly before God, family and their friends.

Jill’s dear friend, LaResha, did a fantastic job coordinating this very special day.  I was so impressed with the way LaResha transformed the space she had for the wedding then quickly transitioned it to the reception so smoothly and after months of planning,  the Alva wedding was a total success!  Jill and Luis looked amazing and the love they have for each other is so evident and a blessing to see!

Here is a sneak peek of a some of my favorites!

Jill and Luis decided to do a first look, which means they see each other before the ceremony.  I LOVE first looks because it gives the bride and groom a private moment to be with each other before the rush of the day begins…it was a beautiful moment as their anticipation grew to see each other.
