After being together for over a decade, Michael and Brooke no longer have to spend one more day apart. The tears and the emotions filled them both as they exchanged their wedding vows under the shaded trees of Jamestown’s Hurst Ranch. Prior to the ceremony and seeing one another, special letters were also exchanged and have been used in their teaser video. There are not enough words would fully describe their wedding day. So I wanted to share a teaser of their wedding day in anticipation for the final highlight film.
Adolfo and Claudia have been married for twenty-five years. Although they have been through a lot of trials and hard times in their lives, the testimonies from their friends, family, and daughters was what brought this day to be memorable and special for the Alan family. In front of God, family, and friends, Adolfo and Claudia wanted to renew their marriage vows to one another as a commitment to one another for many more years down the road.
On June 9, 2018, Michael and Leanndra became Mr. and Mrs. Garza. This wedding was filled with joy and laughter amongst their family and friends to celebrate two people who respected their personal integrity and values even before their relationship began. At the reception venue, Brookeside Country Club, the testimonies that were shared and told of the newly weds brought honor, admiration and respect from all who were a part of the day Michael and Leanndra have been waiting for for so long.
Will you remember the first time you saw each other or the first time you said hello? Zared and Jennifer did!! A little over two years was all it took for Zared to propose to Jennifer knowing that she was the woman that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. Saying their I dos before God and their friends and family at St. Stanislaus in Modesto, CA, they became Mr. and Mrs. Castillo. Everyone then went to Oakdale, CA, at the Reata to celebrate the joyous occasion!
Lorenzo and Jaya said their heart felt vows under the pillars of an outdoor gazebo at the Wedgewood Wedding venue in Brentwood, CA. Although the audio of the vows were not used during this short teaser film (Don’t worry- they will be sure in the final highlight film!), just by watching the clips as they see each other for the first time down the aisle- it probably already going to make you get all the feels.
There was nothing going to stop John & Jamie’s outdoor June wedding, not even one of Modesto’s hottest days of the year! Thankfully Bloms Ranch had a beautiful large tree on their property that provided enough shade for the guests during the ceremony.
Meeting one another at their church, Leanndra wanted to start learning how to play guitar, so Michael offered to teach her. After one of her “lessons,” Daniel, Michael’s brother, recalls during his best man speech that Michael said, “Woah, I’m sweating!” They started dating and had a beautiful testimony of their love and commitment to one another, their family, and especially God.
Together for over a decade, Ramon and Cindy finally tied the knot at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Modesto, CA. Because they have been together since high school, friends and family have waited a long, long time for Ramon and Cindy to become husband and wife. So let us say that the whole day was a very big celebration of dancing, singing, laughing, and shots!
When I met Stephanie, it was on a trip to the Dominican Republic for a conference with a nonprofit organization called A Jesus Mission. Stephanie and I sat in a van together discussing the wedding details having not known anything about her prior to that day. She was very sweet and easy to talk to. To be honest, I tried keeping up with the fast-paced conversation but eventually kept silent because I was not able to come up with a well thought out response in the quickness she was able to talk. Definitely a characteristic that stood out and apparently not just to me, but her now-husband as well.
There is nothing more beautiful than seeing the love between two people as genuine as Rico and Michelle’s. Looking back at the highlights of their day, each moment was filled with love, laughter, and fun with both their family and friends.
