Last Saturday the wonderful Alisa and Justin were married at the Heritage House Inn in beautiful Little River, CA. Bija and I drove up the night before and stayed at the super adorable Sandpiper Inn so we could be with the bride and groom bright and early on their big day.
We started things out with Alisa as brides take a little longer to get ready than grooms. That’s a little known wedding factoid. Alisa was an amazing bride who paid the utmost attention to detail. It was such fun photographing the little details from her Kate Spade shoes and clutch (in which she carried pictures of her grandparents) to her stunning Jenny Lee Couture dress to the amazing jewelry she picked out for her big day. Then add on that she designed the invitations herself, and basically she’s wonder woman. Alisa also brought in some great pros for hair and makeup – Julie Evarkiou of Acabello Salon in San Francisco, and make up artist Arabella Blaza. With these ladies on the job Alisa looked even more jaw-droppingly beautiful than usual.
Bija headed on over to hang out with our groom Justin and photograph him getting ready a little later in the morning. Luckily Justin’s mom and dad were there to help him out.
And then it was ceremony time! Alisa and Justin were married by James Sibbet in a beautiful cliff-side, ocean front ceremony. It was absolutely breath taking! After the vows, rings and kisses were exchanged the happy couple was showered with rose petals as they walked back down the aisle as husband and wife.
The reception was held inside the inn and included a beautiful 5 course dinner. Alisa and Justin shared their wedding with 24 of their closest family and friends. It was lovely that everyone got to spend time with the bride and groom, and they truly celebrated with their loved ones. After dinner, Alisa and Justin cut their stunning cake (again, designed by Alisa) from Perfect Endings Bakery in Napa.
After their guests went back to their hotel rooms, we took Alisa and Justin out for a sunset photo shoot. The clouds refused to part, but we took some beautiful pictures of this amazing couple.
Thank you to Alisa and Justin for letting us be a part of your wedding. We love you guys!! Please check out more images from their wedding day by viewing the sideshow below. I seriously could have made a three hour sideshow if I’d had the music for it! It was killing me to keep this to the length of one song! Take a peek for yourself by clicking the image below.
