Alexa and Tyler’s Dreamy Franciscan Gardens Wedding

Alexa + Tyler

“​​Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. It was everything we wanted it to be and more. I was nervous for the entire year leading up to our wedding, then on our actual day, I felt this incredible peace and enjoyed every minute of it. It was a flurry of emotions you can’t describe with words. We were surrounded by love and had the best party!”

Located nearby California’s “Jewel of the Missions,” the Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano was the perfect venue for Alexa and Tyler’s intimate wedding ceremony. The Spanish-style wooden gates and the lush gardens on the property created a picturesque haven for the newlyweds and their guests. The infinity arch framed by the property’s green hedges served as a meaningful symbol of the couple’s promise of happily ever after.

When asked about why she fell for Tyler, Alexa shares: “Tyler is the calm to my storm. He is kind, reserved, and gentle-natured, while I’m outgoing, loud, and passionate. We balance each other perfectly. We have the same sense of humor and we constantly support, love, and encourage one another to be the best we can be.”

Alexa looked absolutely stunning in a sweetheart-cut gown with a lace bodice and tulip sleeves by Luv Bridal, and her entourage wore stunning red gowns. Alexa’s hair and makeup were courtesy of Mariah Held and Kayla Bannon of Guru Salon. Meanwhile, Tyler looked striking in a navy blue suit, a simple white rose boutonniere, and an oxblood tie to add a pop of color to the look, which his groomsmen also wore.

As night fell on Alexa and Tyler’s wedding reception, the bistro lights that dotted the property came on, adding to the festivities. Guests were treated to fresh tunes by DJ Dean Henderson of Royal Entertainment, while they enjoyed food and beverage from 24 Carrot. White, red, and pink roses added a classic touch to the wedding, courtesy of Cristina’s Flowers. The whole wedding was successfully planned and executed by wedding planner Stephanie Anderson of Exquisite Events Specialists. The entire wedding was captured by Sweet Paper Media.
