Jessica & Jonathan’s romantic Disney wedding in at Serenity on the Rocks will have you smiling ear to ear!
Serenity on the Rocks
Their wedding was the first official wedding at Serenity on the Rocks in Glenshire, CA (as a new wedding venue available for bookings) and I feel so lucky to have been a part of that!
Serenity on the Rocks was the perfect mountain setting for Jessica and Jonathan’s end-of-summer Disney themed wedding day. This wedding site has it all – waterfalls, paths weaving throughout the property, a beautifully landscaped ceremony area and amazing views of the surrounding Sierra Mountains.
Romantic Disney Wedding
I absolutely adored the meticulously executed Disney details! When you walked into the reception area, it felt romantic – red roses and green garlands…gold mercury glass. But when you looked closer, you realize the very detailed, yet subtle, touches of Disney magic.
I was so blown away by the table naming & decor. And the signature drinks? Seriously…just SERIOUSLY.
Can You Feel the Love Tonight?
I love chatting wedding decor & details, but what makes every wedding special are the connections that the couple shares with the people who arrive to celebrate their special day. From the very moment I began capturing moments alongside my second photographer, I felt the love – bigtime!
This couple truly cares about their people. And it really shows. It was amazing to capture special moments between Jessica and Jonathan, and also with their friends and family.
Capturing Once-in-a-lifetime Moments
During dinner time, the sun was setting FAST and lighting up Mt. Rose in a LITERAL shade of Rose. We set up one light off-camera, brought J & J in and BOOM – I got the shot. Several, actually – but I got THE ONE. And that always makes my day as a wedding photographer.
The reception toasts were hilarious and heartwarming. One of the toasts especially had a TON of entertainment value as the MOH and the bride’s sisters serenaded the entire reception with Disney songs with the lyrics changed to tell J & J’s love story. It was amazing. AMAZING.
Oh, and did I mention the bounce house for the kids? SO FUN. Their day was filled with fun touches like that – that made it special for everyone.
I could honestly talk on and on about this incredible wedding, but I should really let the pictures do most of the talking – so enjoy just a few from J & J’s day…it was incredibly hard to narrow down my favorites for a blog post!
CONGRATS, Jessica & Jonathan, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for including me in your unforgettable wedding day!
