Curtis and Aunjilique were married at a beautiful wedding in Napa, on an evening in late May. The sun cast its gorgeous light throughout their outdoor ceremony at the Golf Course at Kennedy Park. Surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards, this venue made the perfect setting for the couple’s big day.
Aunjilique and her bridesmaids prepared for the ceremony at the Vino Bello Resort. Her bridesmaids helped her slip into her fitted lace gown, carefully closing the buttons that ran down the back. Before the ceremony, Aunjilique passed up the traditional first look moment and instead shared a “first look” with her father. Our cameras caught the moment that Jorge, dressed in his Marines uniform, first saw his beautiful daughter on that special day. What a priceless, emotional moment!
There would be plenty more sweet moments as this wedding day went on. As the wedding processional began, the groom walked his mother, Debby, down the aisle, and they shared a hug before she took her seat. The bridesmaids wore long, blush gowns in different styles, and walked down the aisle solo. Four adorable little flower girls in cream-colored tutus momentarily stole the show as they tossed petals and made their way down the aisle. But then the bride started her walk towards her groom, accompanied by Jorge, causing friends and family to catch their breaths. The gorgeous bride was stunning as she made her way down the aisle, the circular, lacy train of her dress and her long veil flowing behind her.
Spring greenery made a perfect backdrop as Curtis and Aunjilique shared their vows with each other. They had specially prepared their own vows as a sign of their devotion to each other. As Curtis kissed his bride, the wind caught her veil, creating a beautiful, majestic moment.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds joined in some photos with their families and wedding party, and then headed to the golf course for some pictures of just the two of them. The chemistry between these high-school sweethearts was so obvious as they took pictures in front of a big oak tree. The sun started to set during these photos, adding a warm, romantic glow.
Traditions were a big part of the couple’s fun wedding ceremony. They shared a sweet first dance, and then Aunjilique and Jorge reunited for a father-daughter dance. Curtis’s playful side came out as he danced with his mother, Debby. After the dances, Aunjilique playfully tossed her bouquet to an awaiting crowd of ladies. The look on her face was a little more hesitant as Curtis found the garter for the garter toss!
These wedding guests knew how to celebrate as they took to the dance floor. Even the youngest guests danced the night away. This was such a joyful celebration for a beautiful couple!
