Dessa + Justin | Galway Downs, Temecula, California | California Wedding Photographer

Justin and Dessa had hands down one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to. Galway Downs had the most lush greenery, blooming california flowers and the most incredible golden sunlight soaking every inch of the venue. Everything was so picturesque to an almost too easy degree. Dessa put her entire heart into every single accessory, location, and vibe of the day.

Dessa and Justin both chose well-lit, clean places to get ready and everybody was so happy and friendly. Their bridesmaids and groomsmen truly just wanted to celebrate them and love on them and that’s exactly what they did.

They had their little dog, Arya, involved in everything. They were even keeping a little secret that they announced at the wedding to all of their guests.

I pretended to take a group photo and then shouted, “Okay, 1, 2 , 3 everybody say ‘Dessa’s pregnant!'” And the crowd lost it. There were tears, and hugs and laughing all around.

Their day was filled with laughs and magic and love pouring from every corner. It was truly the most perfect wedding day.
