This was a Sacred Mountain Julian Wedding. It was held in Sacred Mountain Julian! What. a. beautiful. mouthful. And an even more beautiful venue! I associate shot this for my friend Melissa Rey, who could not be present! I photographed the couple’s proposal so I knew them fairly well, this wedding was perfection.
Sacred Mountain Julian Wedding
Think cozy cabin mountain vibes. This venue is the dream for that!! The ceremony location is marked with a circular wooden arch that can be decorated with florals. A bit further up from the reception is where this empty space is located. It was beautiful. During the ceremony, there were many tears and full hearts as we watched Jake and Jasmine give each other the promise of being life partners.
After the ceremony, we took golden hour photos right behind the arch where you can see the Julian mountains! Then, we made our way to the reception location. The reception area is split into two different levels. For this wedding, the dinner and sweetheart table were in the top level. Sacred Mountain has wooden tables and makes it easy to either have a buffet (like this wedding did) or a sit-down dinner. The DJ and dance floor were in the bottom-most level.
The grand entrance went straight into their first dance, and the song Beyond by Leon Bridges played. I’ll never forget it because it gave me chills. The speeches were so emotional and made everyone laugh, cry, and smile all at the same time. At the end of the night, the bride and groom, and all their loved ones, got on the dance floor and had a glow stick dance party! It was so much fun and so freakin’ beautiful.
I hope you enjoy this beautiful Sacred Mountain Julian Wedding day as much as I did photographing it!
