what a beautiful day this was! valen and mark were married at the rancho bernardo inn, and it was gorgeous! the ceremony was held at the rancho bernardo inn as well, and the events all took place in the santiago courtyard and santiago ballroom. valen chose a color palette with pinks, golds, creams, and pops of brighter colors like deep pink and yellow. she wanted a very classy feminine look, with tons of candles and romantic lighting. valen looked absolutely beautiful in her gown, and i just love the pictures from focus photography! what a great job! dennis bergstrom played both the guitar during the ceremony and cocktail hour, and then he switched gears into dj mode for the reception. the flowers were brilliantly designed by lavonne from adorations, and i think that she truly captured the vision valen had. great job, everyone, and congrats to mark and valen!
