Jess and Tyler’s wedding day at The French Estate in Orange County was a celebration filled with love, laughter, and even a touch of rain. The cloudy skies and slight chance of rain added a unique charm to their special day, making it even more memorable. As Jess prepared for the day ahead with her bridesmaids in the estate, Tyler and his groomsmen relaxed and shared beers in a separate room in the garage. The sun peeked through the clouds, providing a perfect moment to capture individual shots of Jess in her stunning gown, beautifully complemented by her intricate tattoos.

The two shared heartfelt, handwritten vows that brought both laughter and tears to their guests. With their first kiss as husband and wife, the rain eased to a light sprinkle, and guests cheered in celebration.
As the clouds cleared and the sun returned, family and friends gathered for photos and enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Jess and Tyler then snuck away for some romantic sunset shots in front of The French Estate.
