FROM THE BRIDE //  Our wedding day can be described in only one word: magical. I remember feeling stressed the entire week over the possibility of rain, but when I woke up that morning I felt surprisingly calm.  The day went by seamlessly with the sun shining! Getting ready with the girls before the wedding was so much fun. We listened to music and danced up a storm (especially my mother). I surprisingly was hungry and able to eat a lot! Once Sun & Sparrow arrived however, things started to feel very real. I am normally the one in control at all times (disclaimer: I was a bridezilla) and the day of I let the reigns go because Ellie was able to execute my itinerary flawlessly. She got everyone moving and shaking! Before the ceremony, Chris and I had our first look which was very beautiful and private. We continued taking pictures with our family and friends at the beautiful Calamigos Ranch Oak Room and I was absolutely blown away by the enchanting arch that Petals & Linens executed. I was speechless at our floral arrangements! We hired a jazz band for the ceremony and cocktail hour which all of our guests really enjoyed under the gorgeous chandeliers of the outdoors area. After walking down the aisle, the party flew by. Dancing was one of my favorite parts, especially when my new husband decided to do the running man on the floor! It was a beautiful party to celebrate the beginning of a lifelong relationship and I couldn’t be more thankful for our supportive families and of course our amazing vendors!
One special moment that sticks out the most to me is the first look with my Dad. It was the only time I felt really emotional. I saw his eyes get watery and it just broke me. Also, his father of the bride speech was very genuine and from the heart. It was very special for my family.
If I could give one piece of advice to couples currently in the planning stages is to have a first look. The day goes by so fast and it was nice to have the pictures all taken care of prior to the ceremony. Plus your hair and makeup is perfect still. Also, do not download three different weather apps and stare at them all day long leading up to the wedding. It is what it is!
What inspired you while planning your wedding & decor? Was there any special element that made your decor come together for you, personally?
I have always loved the movie The Secret Garden since I was a little girl. I was very inspired by that movie and wanted to recreate it with a bright colored floral arch that looked like it grew from the ground and the waterfall backdrop.

    Dreamy Garden Wedding at Los Willows Wedding Estate // Jeremy & Sarah Jane

    Dreamy Garden Wedding at Los Willows Wedding Estate // Jeremy & Sarah-Jane @ 2019 Sun & Sparrow // LA County Wedding Photographers

    Describe your how you felt on your wedding morning, all the anticipation and the love. What were you most looking forward to in the beginning of your day. 

    The morning of our wedding was filled with anxious anticipation, excitement, love and so much joy all at once. Jeremy, his brothers and cousin Adam went for a quick round of golf and felt a lot of excitement as he thought about this day was finally it! It’s the day we’ve planned and talked about for months on end. Sarah and her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready, drinking mimosas and coffee and just talking about how surreal it feels for this day to actually be here. Both of us were most looking forward to seeing each other and we both had butterflies just thinking about the moment when we finally did. 

     Did you have a ‘first look’ or a ‘walk down the aisle’ moment? How did you feel when you saw your significant other for the first time?
    When Jeremy saw Sarah going down the aisle, he felt an overwhelming amount of emotions that brought him to tears and he was just absolutely bursting with love . He felt like the luckiest man in the world to be marrying  such a beautiful person inside and out. In that moment, he knew that there will never be a decision in life that he’ll be more sure of than marrying this girl. As cliche as it sounds, it was and will be one of those few precious moments in life that he will never forget.
    It’s hard for Sarah to put in words how she felt walking down the aisle because everything about it felt so dreamlike that its difficult to describe the beauty of the sunlight peaking through the trees in the meadow and the smiling faces of all the friends and family surrounding them on that day. Once she was done taking it all in, she locked eyes with Jeremy up the altar who soon after wiped away tears from his eyes. . As she got closer, she felt her heart skip a beat and realize how grateful and blessed she is to have someone to love and adore forever.
    What was your favorite moment/story from your wedding day?
    Our favorite memory from our wedding day would probably be the ceremony where we got to share our love for each other in front of all our family and friends and the moments in between where we stood at the end of the altar, holding hands and knowing that soon after this we’ll have the rest of forever to live happily ever after. We also really cherish the moment when our photographer stepped away to just give us some time to be alone in the meadow after the ceremony and family photos were done. People always tell you to pause and look around to see and take a mental picture of small moments during your wedding day because it goes by so fast and that was one that we both will never forget because it gave us a chance to be alone even just for a few minutes to look at each other and soak it all in.
     How did your day most feel like a fairytale?
    Our day felt most like a fairytale because we were just surrounded with so much love by all of the most important people in our lives. It felt fantastical to know that this may be the only time we will ever have all these people in one place all together like this and they all came to celebrate our us and our love. It was such a happy day and it went as smoothly and perfectly as we could have possibly hoped for.
