rancho las lomas wedding photographer / leyna + paul

What an amazing spring time wedding at Rancho Las Lomas, planned by The Yes Story. This has to be my favorite venue. Every inch of this place is breathtaking with pops of color. Leyna + Paul might look familiar to you from their San Juan Capistrano Mission engagement. I seriously can't get enough of these two. They met in college at Cal State Long Beach and were inseparable ever since. They continue to laugh and constantly make fun of each other. They even coincidentally got each other the same thing as a wedding gift, a Burberry watch crazy. Blogging this session was such a treat for me to relive this special day. Leyna and Paul are in Europe on their honeymoon, congrats to the most beautiful couple inside and out. Words from the from the bride:

The best part about our wedding day was seeing all of our family and friends have an amazing time at the wedding. We definitely felt the love in the air! The venue we chose, Rancho Las Lomas, is a completely different venue than what our family and friends are used to. There's so much space for our guests to explore and a lot of amazing photo opportunity areas. Our venue's caterer, 24 Carrots was also super amazing! Everyone raved about the food, especially those sliders!!! We are also so grateful for all of our vendors, especially our coordinators and photographers! I don't know what I would've done if I didn't have Tammy and her assistants around. They truly made our wedding day so much less stressful so that we were able to take in and enjoy our wedding day. Carissa and her team definitely took beautiful photos and even captured moments and details that I missed on the wedding day. I'd say our wedding was pretty much perfect and even better than what I expected!

My advice for future brides is to really soak in what's going on during the wedding day. It might be hard to have some down time since there's so much going on, but really look at the venue, decorations, and all those who are there to support you because you are loved! It's a wonderful feeling! Also, don't stress over minor details... you honestly won't even notice them since you have other things to do. Enjoy your special day!
