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!
I love this sweet mother and daughter moment!
Jill wore a beautiful David Tutera dress…and she was simply stunning in it!
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.
They did their first dance to Ed Sheridan’s song “Photograph”
…then Luis did a father daughter dance to Butterfly Kisses…it was sooo sweet!
Jill and her brother danced to “That’s What Friends Are For”.
…then came the mother son dance. Luis danced with his mother, Patty.
…then with his mother in law to the Temptations, “My Girl”.
Jill ended with a mother son dance to “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” by Elvis Presley…it was simply beautiful.
Time for a few toasts to Mr. and Mrs. Alva!
Both Jill and Luis shared their appreciation for this special day.
