Set outdoors on a ranch near the town of Visalia, California, Jonathan and Sarah stood amongst the vineyard and beautiful sycamore trees with their family and friends, to celebrate a moment never to be repeated again.
“Jonathan saw me in a photo about 6 months before we met. He asked our mutual friends about me but had no success in getting any of them to connect us. As the months passed his curiosity wouldn’t subside, so he reached out to me directly asking for a date. Much to his surprise, I accepted! At the time I was living in Orange County and he was in Kings Canyon, so he drove 6 hours to take me to coffee…and the rest is history. We spent the next year and a half driving back and forth, 6 hours each way, just to get a short weekend together. It didn’t take long until we knew we wanted to be together forever.” – Sarah (Watch their proposal)
So on a mid-autumn day with a large gathering of 300 friends and family, the final piece of the jigsaw was added. The day captured Jonathan and Sarah so perfectly in their own fun and crazy way – from blissful memories retold of the quiet, romantic moment of them meeting each other for the first time, to the tasty tacos that everyone had for dinner, their simplicity and love were shown in everything. And with an amazing venue like Seven Sycamores, it just goes to show you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy that special day!
If you want to believe that love and fun can go together, then look no further than the Blesses, a truly amazing couple. Oh did we forget to mention Jonathan’s beard! Man Love!
