Valerie and Josh are finally married! Despite planning their wedding during COVID-19, these two planned a super fun and safe day for family and guests. Read on to learn more about this Orchard Ridge Country Club wedding and see some (a lot) of our favorite photos!
The wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful St Vincent De Paul Catholic Church. This is where Valerie and her bridesmaids got ready for the big day! Valerie’s bridesmaids helped her get into her dress and helped her get ready for walking down the aisle! Josh and his groomsmen arrived to the church a little before the ceremony and hung out in a different part of the church! Valerie and Josh wanted to wait until the ceremony to see each other, so there was no first look! Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony.
Guests found their seats, then the wedding party walked down the aisle one by one. Josh patiently waited for his bride! Valerie and her dad walked down the aisle towards Josh. Valerie’s dad joined her and Josh’s hands and gave her away. After a real and sweet message of love and unity from Father Jay, Valerie and Josh exchanged vows, rings, and a kiss! The two were officially married!
After the ceremony, we took a family portraits inside the church and then a few outside of the church as well. We headed to the beautiful Lakeside Rose Gardens for more photos after. It was so beautiful and sunny on their wedding day – We could not have asked for more beautiful weather! After spending some time at the gardens, Valerie and Josh wanted to take a moment to see Valerie’s mom’s grave. She passed away a few years ago. They took time to say hi to her and pray. It was bitter sweet and meant the world to them to do this on their wedding day.
The reception was held at the awesome Orchard Ridge Country Club. While dinner and toasts were on the inside, the reception itself was outside under a tent on the patio! After toasts, dinner, and cake cutting, everyone headed outside for music, dancing, and fun! Around sunset, we took Valerie and Josh out on to the golf course for some dreamy golden hour photos! Those are probably some of our favorites from the day.
We loved capturing this sweet Orchard Ridge Country Club wedding. To Valerie and Josh, we wish you guys good health and happiness on this new path of marriage! We love you guys!
