I could tell you to brace yourself for the beautiful wedding we are about to show you…. but even if you did, I’m not sure that would be enough. Jonathan and Katie planned a stunning chic fall wedding at the Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook California. And if you know Katie and Jonathan, you know they put so much time and effort into planning the most amazing wedding day. For a year they went through each detail and truly picked elements that were uniquely them and their style. I loved following along on their wedding planning journey on Instagram and getting excited alongside them each step of the way. So when we arrived at the Pala Mesa Resort, I wasn’t surprised to see the most perfect chic fall wedding with all the right touches, because I knew if Katie and Jonathan were planning it, it was bound to be amazing.
While Katie and Jonathan planned a stunning wedding that was full of beautiful details, it was the emotions of their day that we were truly lucky to capture. Weddings are always emotional days, but the level of emotion and love during Katie and Jonathan’s day was so beyond the normal. Pure joy, tears of happiness, and squeals of glee were woven into each moment of their day. Like Jonathan’s pure joy and bliss when he turned during the first look and saw Katie for the first time that day. Or the soft tears that continually flowed down Katie’s face during the ceremony. To the tears of joy from Katie’s parents as they embraced and watched their only daughter, the little girl they raised into a woman marry the love of her life. To the moving speech given by Jonathan’s mom that was queal parts joy, laughter, and reverence. I could go on, but since I’m a photographer and not a writer, I’ll let the images do the rest of the talking!
Katie and Jonathan,
I know just how much thought you put into each detail of your wedding and believe us when we say, we are beyond honored you picked us to capture your day. It was so heartwarming to capture the love, tears, joy, and bliss from your day. We wish you nothing but a lifetime of happiness and cannot wait to see what is next for you both!
