Real Wedding Wednesday

Melissa Jackson & Don Bouchard
Rancho Bernardo Inn

A lovely celebration with a theme based off vintage jewelry that was given to the bride by her mother.  The couple also made sure everything reflected family and they incorporated their guests of honor in the ceremony and reception. 

The Ceremony was held in a circle under a Trellis so that Melissa and Don could be completely surrounded by those they loved. During the cocktail hour the guests were entertained by Angelique the Human Music Box, her performance WOWED everyone.

For the reception, The Granada Ballroom at Rancho BernardoInn was transformed into a jazz club and the band kept the guests dancing all night.
