Alyssa and Ray got married on a gorgeous January day in the little Victorian Village of Heritage Park. How lucky are we in San Diego to be able to have a wedding completely outdoors in the month of January?
Alyssa wore a beautiful all-lace dress.

The way they look at each other… Such love!
The order of events was a little different than most, with their cocktail hour starting before the ceremony. After they did their First Look, they wanted to be with their family and friends through the entire process. As guests were enjoying themselves, the bridal party and families took pictures very close by as the guests watched. When pictures finished, Alyssa and Ray joined their guests until they were ready to say their vows. It was the most adorable thing – Alyssa came to me with that shy-girl demeanor and smile and said, “I want to get married! Let’s do it!”
They wanted their guests to see them from all sides as they exchanged their vows, so they got married surrounded by their friends and family.
Because we were in the middle of an open Park, we had to bring in the rented equipment and tables and chairs, but otherwise, Alyssa and Ray brought in some great details all done on their own!

And the dessert display! Friends of Alyssa and Ray created all of this yumminess! There wasn’t much time to get pictures, as they were devoured very quickly after being revealed!
Alyssa and Ray just aren’t the dancing crowd, and that was ok, as no one missed it much! Alyssa and Ray did their First Dance as a silhouette, they provided games for their guests to play, and they played more interactive games on the dance floor.
Although it did get pretty chilly and damp by the end of the evening, they couldn’t have asked for a better day!
