From the photographer:

When you plan a wedding date in November, you run the chance that it’s going to rain… and yes, even in sunny California!
This couple could care less though; they were going to get married and that’s all that was important. They had the best attitude which made it an extremely cool wedding for us to shoot as wedding photographers.  Even though some last minute plans had to be made to have a lot of the wedding take place inside the beautiful venue “The Villa in San Juan Capistrano” everyone pulled together to make it happen.

Luckily for Erika and Justin, they didn’t have to wait until tomorrow for the sun to come out.  Not rain,nor sleet,nor hail, nor snow could have kept this party from getting started!

As if I couldn’t love this wedding anymore, this wedding wasn’t just filled with ear to ear smiles and good times.  Erika, Justin and their friends and fam were dancing in the streets and around the DIY.     I mean can I get a “WOOT WOOT!!!” for the photo and rope wrapped wine bottles? Take a look at the rustic touches that compliment the vintage Villa backdrop from handmade signs and banner to the sweet “sweetest day favors.”  I’m getting that “my mouth is starting to hurt from smiling feeling,” how about you?
