Harry Potter Wedding // Joey + Casaundra

“I am not worried, Harry,” said Dumbledore, his voice a little stronger despite the freezing water. “I am with you.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I feel like I need to go watch all of the Harry Potter books after this wedding, because seriously, how can you not fall in love with all of this detail?! From the getting ready process to the end of the evening send off with hand made wands, you can't go wrong.

The greatest love of all// Aaron + Megan

When planning a wedding during the Winter/spring months, rain is a factor that brides should always take into consideration. Aaron and Megan picked the perfect location for this time of year. In the beautiful area of Calimesa, a unique country club was readily available for the two of them to exchange their vows. Origionally the plan was to have an outdoor wedding and indoor ceremony. However the weather did not allow for this, so the ceremony took place inside.


This bride was given 6 months to live 3 years ago

"Jonathan never flinched or questioned his feelings for me even through the tough times. Very early in our relationship my health plummeted yet again. New tumors grew rapidly and there were so many questions left unanswered. Jonathan stood by my side with his head held high confident we could fight this. That day he put on the face of a fearless warrior ready to battle anything that would come our way. I knew then not only was he fighting with me but he was ready to fight for me." -Alicia

The Wedding Beneath The Great Oak

The ceremony was held beneath "The Grand Oak". It has been estimated to be between 900-1300 years old. This would make it the second oldest Coastal Oak in the world. This tree symbolizes the strength and longevity of Ruthanna and Davids beautiful marriage.
