How many little girls have grown up dreaming that just like a Disney princess they would find their prince charming and live happily ever after? Well, as we grow up we learn that indeed, life is no fairy tale. But it is possible to find true love, and little girls do grow up to be princesses and find their prince charming. The tale of Miguel and Leah is one such story…
Once upon a time, in a land not so very far away, while visiting a friend (who just happened to be Leah’s uncle) the last thing Miguel expected to find was the love of his life. But just like all great stories, the unexpected often happens, and an ordinary day becomes extraordinary!
As every little girl knows, the BEST part of the fairy tale is when the prince and his princess are wed, and they begin their happily ever after.
Starting at the Padre hotel, the couple dressed and prepared for the ceremony. They still weren’t allowed to see each other, Leah wanted it to be a surprise! Miguel added his new watch to his handsome suit and bow tie while the time ticked away for what seemed like an eternity! Leah’s mother helped her dress in her gorgeous lace bridal gown from Alfred Angelo complete with an elegant trailing veil and of course, a glittering tiara!
This couple, barely even friends at first, were now becoming husband and wife in front of the alter at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church. After the ceremony, family gathered around this new couple for photos while Allison Claire Photography was busy making sure no moment was missed.
Now it was time for the ballroom scene – the new Mr. and Mrs. shared their first dance as husband and wife at the Rio Bravo Country Club in Bakersfield. DJ Noe Garcia provided the soundtrack for this enchanted evening while the Bride and Groom cut into their cake made by Sweet Surrender, after enjoying a delicious meal by Bord A Petite Catering. The evening ended with dancing, smiles, and laughter as any good fairy tale should.
Leah grew up with visions of princesses dancing around a shimmering ballroom each with their prince. No longer a little girl, Leah still loves Disney princesses and just like Belle, the beauty has found her beast. Her “beast” Miguel, won her respect and just as a good prince should, he will always love and take care of his princess.
And they lived happily ever after…
