John & Jamie | Outdoor Summer Wedding | Modesto Wedding Photo & Video

Sep 15, 2018

Fate, destiny, chance, God ordained, or whatever you want to call it, John and Jamie’s outdoor summer wedding would not have been possible if they didn’t meet at a bar in Las Vegas. The classic story of a man meets woman and exchange phone numbers to later keep in touch. Their acquaintance turned into a friendship, then into a relationship and now has turned into a marriage of a lifetime commitment to one another. 

Long Distance Commitment

While John and Jamie met at Las Vegas, it just so happens that they happen to live in the same state: California. Living in two different parts of the same state, a long distance commitment was required from the two individuals who were definitely interested and attracted (as witnessed by Jamie’s friends who were there from the beginning) to one another since that first day they met. Time flew by and John and Jamie knew they wanted to be married. 

Modesto Outdoor Summer Wedding

John and Jamie planned their outdoor summer wedding in 6 months! Assembly wonderful wedding vendors in and outside the Modesto area, the entire wedding was absolutely stunning that you would have thought it had taken a year at least to plan. Willow Floral Designswent to the LA flower market to bring stunning summer flowers to the very hot Central Valley and manage to look preserved the whole day! The flowers made the whole area put together with Standard Party Rentals‘ tableware, table, and chairs. During the cocktail hour, it was important to have a bar that was easy to set up at this private estate venue, Tap Truck of Central Valley was the absolute perfect choice in their cute turquoise restored truck from 1964 including bartending and all equipment to serve local breweries and wineries beer, wine or cider. 

The makeup on Jamie and her bridal party were flawless throughout the day thanks to Cynthia Vazquez‘s amazing makeup skills. Even after John fed (and tapped on Jamie’s nose) cake made by Cheesecake Kitchen and mini desserts by Nothing Bundt Cakes, did Jamie’s makeup still look fabulous for hours of fun funky tunes for dancing thanks to the DJing by Rob Pacheco of TnTProductions
