We’ve been stoked for April 22 since the day we met up with Wade and Beatriz many months ago. Their love for each other is the real deal. And real deal love makes for the realest of celebrations.

Heart and soul went into the planning of this day and it showed. They searched high and low for the perfect venue and found it at the Mission San Luis Rey in sunny San Diego County. The grounds were beautiful, gardens and cacti and monuments seeped in rich history all around. The sun showed up to create the perfect day and shine down on the love that was to be commemorated there.

Wade arrived with the guys, and once he figured out how to tie that bow tie he was looking sharp and ready. Beatriz arrived with her girls shortly after and was stunning even before the dress. A tiny room served as the place for her finishing touches, and we will never forget her papa’s face when he saw his daughter as a bride for the first time. So much love and tears in one room already, and we were just getting started.

Hundreds of friends and family gathered into the breathtakingly gorgeous chapel. When Beatriz entered in and walked down the aisle with both parents by her side, everyone was in awe, especially the groom. It was a holy ceremony, filled with the beauty of worship and honoring God and the vows real love willingly makes. Wade and Beatriz are committed to each other and to what they believe. Their character is strong and stronger together. Couples like them become one and show the world how its done. What a blessing to witness such a union.

And to celebrate it! The reception was lovely and lively from the get-go. Cute cacti on each table, a section just for Mexican candy, Mexican food for appetizers and dinner, a happening bar and dance floor and a mariachi band to serenade us all. So many people who love Wade and Beatriz and whom they love back, all in one joy-filled, music-filled, love-filled place. The Wrights are on the right track to a full and fun life.

Thanks for letting us be a part of your exceptional love and day, Wade and B! Look out world for Mr. and Mrs. Wright.
