TPC Valencia is The Spot for Thaesha & Sam’s Romantic Wedding

Thaesha’s tattoo says “The Beauty in Everything”, and this saying truly encapsulated Thaesha and Sam’s entire wedding day. From Thaesha’s beautiful smile and priceless expressions, to the fabulous setting and stunning flowers from Charmaine, to the way Sam’s face lit up when his bride was in view, romance and beauty were the words of the day.

The romance and love shared by this sweet couple are evident in every photograph. Their wedding was the ultimate expression of beauty and love.

It was our pleasure to have worked with them and helped refer so many of the Santa Clarita Valley’s premier vendors to help make their day so special.

We know these two and their families will share a beautiful future.

Ventura’s Pierpont Inn Overlooks Beach for Perfect Setting

Beach weddings are always special, but Tina & Mike’s wedding was extra special. There was no traditional bridal party: Tina’s son, Jacob, and her niece and nephew were the only attendants. Tina & Mike thought of every way to include Jacob in the ceremony and reception events. He even got to play DJ at the reception.

Tina’s planning and attention to detail was amazing. She thought of everything. The reverend who married them had married her sister and brother-in-law some years before, so there was a great rapport and family feeling about the ceremony.

The Vineyards in Simi Valley: Pretty Inside and Out

The Vineyards in Simi Valley was a picturesque location for Katherine & Weston’s elegant wedding. The striking hot pink accents and Charmaine’s stunning flowers combined with the dramatic backdrop to create some pretty memorable images.

Katherine & Weston are a romantic, fun-loving couple. It was such a special moment when Katherine read her groom’s touching words as she was getting ready to see him for the first time that day.

What a fun, beautiful day for this special couple.

Rave Review: Casey & Mauricio

Another rave review for R & R, this one from Casey:

We had Dave & Jody do our wedding photos and engagement photos. WOW!!!!

Our pictures have come out so amazing. We have so many people that have commented on how beautiful the pictures have come out for both the engagement photos and for the wedding photos. 

Dave and Jody have been doing photography for years and the quality definitely shows. I know Photoshop can do a lot to make a photo look good, but their skill with their tools cannot be manipulated with a computer application. Also, when it comes time for the composition of the photo book, Jody is a master. She will run it down as to how she does what she does, if you want her to, or you just let her do it. Either way, you will see the phenomenal results that come about from what they do. 

They care, not just about how the pictures will come out, but also about your satisfaction as a customer. A quality that didn’t seem to matter to some of the vendors I met with. One in particular made me feel like he was too good to do my wedding. You won’t get that with Dave and Jody.

We had a great time with them also. They are such a cute couple. 

Like I said about the other Vendors we had, they care about you and your happiness, not just about getting paid. It comes through in the quality of the photos and the genuine smiles they will get from your family.

Vintage Backyard Wedding Lights Up The Night With Megan & Mark’s Blowout Party- RX For Fun!

What are the odds that two people could meet online, and not find out until their first date that they are both nurses working at the SAME hospital?!  Pretty slim, I would think.  But Megan and Mark did it, and when it came time for their wedding it was a prescription for fun…and lots of it!  There was so many custom touches that really showed off their unique personalities- from the custom cuff links that were Megan’s special gift to her groom, to the pharmacy inspired seating cards and table names- complete with the head table named-what else- Viagra!  Their adorable daughter played a prominent role…the three of them got married!  Her expressions are just priceless. 

Happily Ever After

Happily Ever After

The combination of the warm night air, cute, personalized touches and their warm, friendly upbeat personalities, made for some great shots!  Thank you Megan & Mark for being so much fun and so willing to try ham it up for the camera, and really be yourselves!

Let the games begin!

Let the games begin!
