Ceremony and Reception - Rancho Buena Vista Adobe
A moment alone
When it comes to venues, there are a gambit of places to get married. It has been over 15 years since I last shot at the Rancho Buena Vista Adobe. When I arrived I did not recognize it at all since I was only ever on the other side of the venue and never in the grass area. It was great to be back.
This venue is run and maintained by the City of Vista. You really have to want to take control of your wedding day to do it here as there is really no one else to do it for you. Upon my arrival, I saw the groom helping move tables around to get the reception ready. So I decided to go find the bride.
Leslie said she was shy of having photos taken of her. I think she did great.
A beautiful long train and wait till you see the veil!
The grounds exude a classic Mexican architecture. These adobe structures are well over 100 years old and surrounded by pepper trees.
The groom waits patiently for the ceremony to start. A bit of trouble with the sound system kept it from starting on time.
Dru certainly had a look in mind when he chose this stunning jacket. I have never seen anything like it. Bold choice, and you nailed it Dru!
Using an older child for your flower girls is a great choice. They don't have to be couched down the aisle and they don't forget what to do.
Hidden behind the door of the adobe house, the bride has arrived with her mom and dad.
There ceremony was about 45 - 50 minutes or so long. It only took that long because the officiant was having to translate back and forth from Spanish to English.
Congratulations to Leslie and Dru.
