We love a good first look, especially when capturing a genuine reaction like this. Aleeza’s excited expression and Jesus’ smile are our favorite parts.

The outdoor ceremony scene is like a breath of fresh air, from the blooms lining the aisle to the tree arch. Casa Real Events’ courtyard is the perfect backdrop.

A nice contrast to the light and airy theme, the welcome sign introduces black as an accent color.

The outdoor setting is complete as the couple exchange rings and cement their vows with a kiss. The bubbles create a dreamy atmosphere and make the moment even more memorable. 

Loved the ceremony? If so, you’ll be head over heels for the reception space, too. We don’t know where to look between the floral chandelier, custom monogram, and sweetheart table. It feels as if we stepped into a fairytale!
