If you could recall, I photographed Josh and Theresa’s engagement session earlier this year.

Josh and Theresa got married at Sunset Hills in Apple Valley, CA. With lightning storms, 50 mile per hour winds, and a brushfire in the background, the day did not look well for this gorgeous couple. But after a few hours, right before their ceremony, the skies cleared up, the winds settled, and the Apple Valley Brushfire Response team quickly took care of the fire. Josh and Theresa’s wedding continued and very beautifully, I might say.

Tears fell during the ceremony, and the applause filled the room as the curtains revealed the beautiful weather during Josh and Theresa’s first kiss as husband and wife.

During the Reception, Josh had a special song to sing to Theresa and was joined by his groomsmen. Complete with a choreographed dance number, Josh made sure Theresa would never forget their special night.

Josh and Theresa’s wedding was a great reminder that even though not everything may fall into place early on in a wedding, it doesn’t mean things won’t work out beautifully, as they did that night.

A few days after their engagement session, MTV contacted me for a wedding to cover and for Josh and Theresa’s wedding, we were joined by MTV’s media crew to film the wedding for their Show “Quiero Mi Boda.” If you’d like to view a short clip of their wedding as featured on “Quiero Mi Boda,” please click this link: Josh and Theresa @ Quiero Mi Boda.

We photographed Travis and Stephanie’s engagement earlier this year in Fullerton. *If you haven’t viewed it yet, please click this link: Travis and Stephanie’s Engagement Session.

Not very far away was their wedding ceremony at the amazing Villa Del Sol. Known as the “pride and soul of the community,” Villa Del Sol was built in the 20’s to house stores and restaurant, almost a century later the venue is as beautiful as ever. It’s become one of the most popular wedding venues in Fullerton, California.

Stephanie started her day at home surrounded by her close family members, while Travis wrote his vows at Villa Del Sol with his groomsmen.

Their wedding started an hour before the sunset and finished with enough light for us to photograph one of the most beautiful romantic sessions ever. Travis went from pale and shaking to the smooth and suave gentleman Stephanie fell in love with.

The passing traffic exploded with a volley of honks and congratulatory shrieks as they drove by the newlyweds kissing in the middle of the streets.
