I have been looking forward to Jenn’s wedding for the longest time and I think it’s because we have been friends for more than a decade!
Jenn and Chris make the sweetest couple. They bring out the best in each other and it is so endearing.
Their wedding was located at the palatial Rancho Valencia Resort in North County San Diego, one of the most luxurious staycation spots
you can imagine. We loved capturing the glamorous details throughout the ceremony and reception and, of course, their lovely romantics
where we wandered the property discovering one oasis after another.
Rancho Valencia Resort is one of the best venues we’ve had the pleasure to work with and you’ll see why in the photos.
Holly Chavez, we love you. You are a fabulous and hugely talented wedding planner! We had a great time working with Kristin Brand
and Kristy Warner who did bridal hair and makeup. You brought out the bombshell beauty in Jenn! Heather, of Wisteria Grove Florals,
stunned us with pink and cream bouquets and the table arrangements that filled the reception room with a most beautiful fragrance.
The most perfect cake for this wedding was imagined and created by Cakes to Celebrate.
We were so impressed by how seamless the event unfolded so we are sending hugs and a major thank you to everyone involved.
Jenn & Chris, we wish you two the absolute best!

How did you two meet?
We actually met through my brother. Chris and my brother were in the Navy together and he came over to our house one night and we just
clicked. Chris asked my brother if he thought I would go out on a date with him and my brother said no. We started dating June 18, 2011
and Chris left for deployment at the end of July for 8 months.
Being apart and only being able to communicate via email was tough but allowed us to get to know each other on a level that most people
don’t get the opportunity to experience. We have been inseparable ever since.
Tell us about your proposal:
Chris proposed on my 30th birthday at Alexander’s on 30th in Northpark. He not only surprised me with the proposal but my sister
came down from LA and my parents drove down from the Bay Area to be there along with his best friend. It was absolutely amazing!
Why did you choose your venue?
I have been in the wedding industry for the last 10 years and wanted something totally different than all the other weddings I have done
over the years. We both immediately fell in love with the uniqueness of Rancho Valencia. The staff at Rancho Valencia was incredible
and the food was to die for.
What do you love about each other most?
We love that we truly are best friends and soul mates (as cheesy as that sounds).
We push each other to be better and are always there for each other. We have a bond that will stand the test of time and is unbreakable.
