Jacqueline and Jesse’s Engagement Session

Aug 26

engagement session

Jacqueline and Jesse’s engagement session at the Temecula Rose Garden was so much fun! Jacqueline “Peach” and Jesse met when Jessie was playing baseball professionally for the Springfield Cardinals and Peach was on Team Louie (she ran promotions in between innings). He would always have snacks waiting for her at the bullpen! They formed an incredible bond and decided to date and well the rest is history. Jessie proposed on the top of mt helix, that’s one of their favorite spots to go together because it has such killer sunset views.

Their favorite things to do together are cook, sing, fish, grocery shop, and shop at Ross!

Jacqueline and Jesse are one of the winners from our elopement giveaway that we had earlier this year and I can’t tell you how excited I am for their wedding in September.

Here are a few words from Peaches about her wedding and winning:

I was always the girl who dreaded planning a wedding. I’ve always dreamed of a simple, intimate, special day but who was going to explain that to my east coast mother who has waited her whole life to see me in a wedding dress…

One year passes by of being engaged and I have NOTHING planned. At this point I feel like a hopeless, horrible bride. Everyone is asking us what our plans are, and I’ll never forget the (multiple) moments of looking at each other hoping the other would answer.

@chelseamottola sent me a message on Instagram about an elopement package giveaway & I immediately entered!

Long story short – we did NOT win the elopement giveaway.

A couple of weeks go by and our pastor @jeremymcgarity was preaching on praying bold prayers; God doesn’t just want your small prayers, he wants your “impossible” ones too. I told jesse “I’m just going to start praying every single morning for the impossible; a wedding”. I am not kidding you guys, that very next morning @heatherandersonphotography and @weddingsbykatlin messaged me to tell me they wanted to grant Jesse and I a small elopement package, too….


I called jesse immediately with tears in my eyes. A sign of hope went a long way for this bride! And it truly confirmed everything for us.

Are you dreaming about having an elopement and don’t know where to start? Contact me today, I would love to tell you about our elopement packages!
