ASHLEIGH + JORDAN
Wedding Color Palette:
Sunset colors; blush, greenery and rustic orange palettes.
Tell us about your wedding venue and why you chose to get married there:
Our wedding venue was held at Los Willows Wedding Estate, where there was a romantic willow tree ceremony area where you could hear nothing but water trickling down the man made stream that flowed underneath the bridge you had to cross over. We were looking for a venue that made you feel like you were in a romantic wonderland- it was also a huge plus that the ceremony and reception site were in the same location. We had a lot of family and friends that traveled from far to us get married, so we didn’t want them to have to drive or Uber around.
What was your favorite wedding purchase?
Jordan says purchasing the hand painted jean jacket he got me, I would have to say the cufflinks I got for Jordan.
What was your best wedding day memory?
Jordan’s- seeing me at the top of the stairs just being walking down the aisle, it calmed his nerves down.
Ashleigh's- seeing Jordan rip his pants from dancing to the garter dance!
What was your something old, new, borrowed, blue?
Old, blue, borrowed: my late grandmother’s blue beaded rosary that was draped around my bouquet. Something new: my gorgeous wedding shoes that I really wanted and Jordan ended up gifting them to me as a surprise at my bridal shower!
Did you create any details yourself?
Yes! Guest gifts, dj playlists, cornhole game rules sign, donut board, picture board.
How did you incorporate your personalities into the wedding?
We both love food, games, music/dancing and crafted drinks! So we wanted to be sure everyone else indulged and had a great time!
What was your wedding song?
Florence and the Machine- Stand by Me. (Feel free to google and listen while you're looking through their photos)
Special shout out to all the amazing vendors who did an amazing job!!!

I'M JANELLE MARINA
Wife, Mama Shark, + Photographer.
Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
