April and Jorge met at work and almost immediately fell in love with each other. They share a passion for travel and spending time with family and friendships and are the light of the party anywhere they go. As many couples who planned their wedding not expecting a pandemic, April and Jorge, fought for their love and decided to get married despite everything standing in their way. Working with Southern California wedding planners H & L LOVELY CREATIONS, It was a beautiful and intimate wedding with a French Garden vibe, at one of the most romantic places in Sierra Madre, California, THE LAVENDER MARKETPLACE. Full of European touches and beautiful gardens it was the perfect canvas for their magical day. Surrounded by all who love and cherish them, April and Jorge said YES to each other and united their lives with a special ceremony.

The pastel colours, dusty blues, and soft pinks were the perfect palette for the day, lavish florals decorated the tables and every area of the venue. Her dress from SAINT CLARK BRIDAL SUITE was full of lace with a soft tulle that gave the perfect volume to her gown and of course the always romantic "off the shoulder" style completed her look. April and Jorge enjoyed every second of their day and these images by LOVELY LIGHT IMAGERY are a vivid testimony of their love.
