Serendipity Wedding by Valentina Glidden Photography
Monday, September 17, 2012
I just adore this Oak Glen, California wedding by Valentina Glidden Photography. The wedding took place at a gorgeous outdoor venue in the hills called Serendipity. And the dress? To die for! Thank you Valentina for sharing this wedding with us!
From the bride: Our wedding day was by far the best moment of our lives. It was a hot evening in late July. It was incredible to get to share such a great event with over 150 of our closest friends and family. We were married by Pastor Bruce French of our home church in Glendora, Cornerstone Bible Church. The colors we chose were pale yellow and bright orange. The style of the wedding was all outdoor shabby-chic meets rustic. Krista loved being taken around the grounds in a horse drawn carriage, and I (Derek) enjoyed my nieces and nephews in their darling dresses and suits as flower girls and ring bearers. We both enjoyed Brock Jacobsen, the funniest guy we know, give his best man speech and sneak a couple of jokes in there as well. Krista's older brother Steven, a groomsmen, proposed to his then girlfriend, the maid of honor, after it was arranged for her to catch the bouquet. We also really enjoyed the orange and yellow candy bar as well as the sparkler exit. It truly was a beautiful fairytale on the day in which we became one at such a magnificent location.
