Rein + Alvin – Sheraton Mission Valley

Rein and Alvin had a super fun wedding at the Sheraton Mission Valley. Their getting ready time was so cute. She sent him a card and gift but he thought they had agreed not to do gifts. So he spent some time trying to have someone help him get flowers and a card for her. She wanted to watch his reaction to opening the gift but her girls wouldn’t let her “see” him before the wedding so she just listened to it. I loved how much she was smiling all day and her weaved wedding gown was so unique! We also enjoyed getting to see one of our past couples, Alvin’s brother and his wife! We shot their wedding about 6 years ago so it was neat to catch up with them.

The ceremony was at a pretty and modern looking Catholic church. She had her parents open the doors for her and then she met up with them halfway down the aisle. They had a sweet and meaningful ceremony and I loved the doors on the chapel! After the ceremony was over, they had photos with their families and with their wedding party and each other. Then they headed back to the Sheraton Mission Valley to enjoy cocktail hour and the reception with everyone.

The cocktail hour had so many beautifully created treats and we loved their travel themed reception. Each guest had a travel tag as a favor and name tag and their cakes had a plane flying across. They had so many adorable kids having the time of their lives at this event. At the reception there were some great speeches and everyone had a lovely time!

We hope you enjoy this wedding film!
