If you haven’t noticed by now, this wedding was one of my favorites and I have just covered my website in their images! Not only does JJ have a love for fashion that exuded in hers and Steven’s wedding style, but she and Steven have the sweetest connection. Just scroll down to see the love these two share and how it comes right through in every photo.

JJ and Steven were married at Gershon Bachus Vintners in Temecula, CA. They met while working together and their first non-official date was at the Huntington Beach Pier where they watched the sunset. After they had dated long enough to know they wanted to share the rest of their lives together, Steven took JJ out to the gorgeous ocean views at Sunset Cliffs of San Diego and popped the question. Of course, with all of these sweet beach memories, we had to return for their engagement session. You can see a tiny glimpse of that on the invitation above, but if you want to view the whole blog post, just click here!

Something I loved about hanging out with JJ and the girls on her wedding day was her playful and bubbly spirit. Just look at how she shines in this bridal portrait below!

While I was hanging out with all of the ladies, my second shooter Mike went to capture the guys’ time together. Steven looked so sharp with his bow tie!

This was actually JJ + Steven’s second wedding celebration since they initially went to China to get married and then had a second wedding for all of their friends and family in the states. Since they did everything the traditional way back in China, these two really wanted their celebration here in California to be all about the fun. They were excited to host a big party for their friends and have a great time surrounded by the people they loved. It was fun to see that all come to life and be able to capture it for them!

After the ceremony, we took their portraits in JJ’s gorgeous and classic wedding gown. The sunlight gleamed behind them beautifully and they laughed and celebrated their vows all over again. Then, JJ switched into her second outfit of the night! Yes, she had two wedding dresses, and they were both incredible in different ways! I adored the two-piece, down-to-earth dress she wore for the party. It was perfect for the vibe they were going for and showed just as much personality as JJ!

Steven had the greatest shoes, might I add. Since photographing all the little details up close, I’ve come to appreciate things such as great shoes, especially in the men! His swag was the perfect compliment to JJ’s style.

After all of the portraits, we entered the reception and they danced the night away, cake included, of course!

A big thanks to these two sweet things for inviting me out to capture this exciting day and great party for their friends and family in California. I already miss them so much! It’s such a bitter-sweet moment when I pack up my camera for the night. Maybe they’ll find their way back to the blog for their one-year anniversary photos! We shall see!
