Our Road To Mr & Mrs in our Beautiful Outdoor Venue Orcutt Ranch – California
November 4th, 2018 was one of the best days of our lives because Drew and I finally got to say I Do. And it was a dream come true. We had the most beautiful outdoor venue, Orcutt Ranch in Southern California and the love of friends and family. If you are new here you can read our engagement story here.
At last, I’m getting around to sharing our wedding photos. A lot of people have been asking and I’m finally delivering. It’s been hard to choose our favorites considering our photographer LizztinPhotos did such an incredible job capturing our perfect day. So I’m going to break up this wedding post in two. First, the Ceremony and next week all share all the details of the reception. I hope you guys enjoy. For a full list of our wedding vendors scroll all the way to the end.
Yaritza, Mi Amor, Mi Vida.
We have grown together and experienced the truth that no relationship is perfect… And that’s what makes up perfect. So I stand here before you and our family’s to give you my promise.
I promise to have the patience that love demands. To give you strength and be your rock. I promise to hold your hand every night even if we are upset at each other. I promise that I will walk with you hand in hand, wherever our journey leads us, living, learning, loving…. together forever. I love you.
Andrew J Estrada the first time I saw you I knew that there was something special about you because your smile brightened my entire day. Today 4 years later as I stand here ready to become your wife your smile still brightens my day.
I love you more than words can express and today on our wedding day I vow to continue to love you every single day until forever and beyond. I vow to always be your partner in crime, to always have your back and support you in whatever you decide to do. I vow to always stand by you as we grow in our marriage and I vow to stand back and allow you to grow as an individual. I promise to protect your dreams as if they were my own. I can’t believe that I’m the lucky girl who gets to call you my husband. I love you.

I went shopping at Bella Wedding Bridal in Los Angeles and I tried on about 6 dresses total. But the moment I slipped into this Bristol Sottero and Midgley dress I was in love. I even got teary-eyed a little bit and that’s when I knew this was the dress I was going to wear on my wedding day. I just loved the ivory over soft blush and the lace applique but most of all I loved how it hugged all my curves and it made me feel absolutely beautiful.
Full disclosure I won my wedding dress in an Instagram giveaway and it was the best thing ever! I remember getting the DM from WeddingWire saying I was the winner of their Maggie Sottero Wedding Dress contest and I honestly couldn’t believe it. I was so excited to be able to get the dress of my dreams and not worry about going over budget. So thank you WeddingWire.com and Maggie Sottero!
We didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony so we opted out of the First-Look and instead shared a First-Touch. It was such a sweet moment because it had been almost 24hours since I had last spoken or seen Drew. And after all the running around of getting ready I was feeling anxious and nervous so it was really nice to hold his hand, hear his voice and remember that today was our day and everything was going to be great. During our first touch moment, I handed him a handkerchief with a note,
“ Today I walk down the aisle, towards our future life together. Good days, bad days, fun days, lazy days, With my whole heart, I promise you forever. ”
Here Comes The Bride
Our beautiful flower girls handed out roses to our guest as they walked down the aisle.
My Godson carried our sacred vows inside this wooden Book of Vows.
We both cried throughout the entire ceremony.
I’ve dreamt of this moment my entire life. Walking down the aisle to the man of my dreams. I couldn’t believe it was finally happening, I was so nervous and emotional my entire body was shaking.
It was important for us to incorporate a Blanket Ceremony into our wedding to honor Drew’s Native American Heritage.
