Jill & Bryan- Fullerton Arboretum Wedding

You know when you plan an outdoor wedding, there’s always that fear: What if it rains???? Even in Southern California it does happen. And it did happen on Jill & Bryan’s wedding day. The Fullerton Arboretum is a gorgeous setting for a garden wedding. Jill and Bryan were to be married under the Wisteria Arbor and the reception would be in the covered pavilion. While we waited to see if the rain was going to let up, we did their first look. One of the most emotional first looks I’ve ever seen. Bryan’s reaction was priceless!

As we waited to see if the rain was going to die down, we took some portraits on the covered wrap-around porch of the historic home on the property.

Once they saw that the rain was only getting heavier, the decision was made to move the ceremony to the reception pavilion. Everyone rolled with the punches.

What a wonderful moment right before Jill walked down the aisle.

When Jill was handed off to her handsome soon to be husband, I heard her whisper, “This is perfect. It’s perfect.”
