Stephanie + Justin – Rancho Bernardo Inn

Stephanie and Justin got married at Rancho Bernardo Inn on a beautiful fall day. They each got ready at Rancho Bernardo Inn and didn’t see each other until their ceremony. I always love seeing the groom’s face as his bride is walking down the aisle! After their church ceremony, Justin’s military friends did a sword ceremony on their way out.

After the ceremony everyone went back to Rancho Bernardo Inn for the reception. Stephanie and Justin had such beautiful light for their photo time and the guests had a great time. Their reception was beautiful with gorgeous flowers and an amazing dessert spread. They had live music during the cocktail hour and a photobooth during the reception. Their siblings gave very nice speeches and all in all it was just such a fun night. There was tons of dancing and love and fun. These two are just so great together and we’re so happy for them. We hope you enjoy this beautiful wedding! Also see below for a touching email I received from Stephanie’s mom.

From the Mother of the Bride: I knew the day we met you that you and Jared were the right team  to capture Stephanie and Justin’s wedding ! The manner in which you described your work demonstrated your passion for what you do and more importantly, the way that you described your life with Jared and how you got into this business with him gave us an insight that you would treat this wedding like your own.

IT COULD NOT HAVE GONE MORE PERFECTLY and for all you and Jared did to create this beautiful movie, we are deeply grateful!!! A thousand thank yous for a wonderful job and their film will be a treasured keepsake documenting a cherished day in their lives. It still brings tears to our eyes as your work doesn’t just document the activities of the day, it captures the feelings of the day and as a result, every time we watch the way you juxtaposed the images and dialogue , it evokes such warm feelings that we feel as though we are reliving the experience. We just love what you did and we also appreciate how well everything is organized so that we can watch and enjoy specific parts of the day.

After one month of marital bliss, Justin was deployed to the other side of the world ,so he has not yet seen the film. I don’t think Stephanie has stopped watching it as it means so much to her right now since he has been gone. Your creation continues to give her such joy and is connecting her with Justin more than you will ever know.

Thank you so much for all you and Jared did on their wedding day and more importantly for what you did in your editing process. This is a truly priceless gift and we are all so appreciative. You and Jared pour your hearts into your creations and that is why your company is guaranteed to be successful.
