Nora and Allen's Fallbrook Estate Wedding

March 15th, 2024

The magic of love was in the air on the day Nora and Allen decided to tie the knot at the enchanting Fallbrook Estate by Wedgewood Weddings, situated in picturesque Fallbrook, California. This wedding was a testament to the fact that even when things don't go according to plan, they can still end up being perfect.


What started as a day with perfect weather, took a sudden turn when unexpected rain started pouring down. The day, which was supposed to be bathed in the warm California sunshine, was instead drenched in a downpour. The staff at the Fallbrook Estate, however, were quick to act, coming up with a backup plan and moving the entire ceremony indoors. This unexpected twist did not dampen the spirits of the couple, nor their guests. In fact, the sudden change in plans added a sense of adventure and excitement to the day.


The storm lasted for almost two hours, with gusty winds and even occasional flashes of lightning in the distance. But, just as quickly as it had started, the rain ceased, and the sun started to peek through the clouds. This gave us an opportunity to capture some stunning portraits of the newly married couple against a backdrop of the beautiful sunset. The golden hues of the setting sun against the dark storm clouds created a dramatic and stunning setting for Nora and Allen’s portraits.


The day ended on a high note, with the couple and their guests dancing and celebrating the night away indoors. The memories of that day are vividly captured in the images that I was privileged to take. Despite the unexpected rain, or perhaps because of it, Nora and Allen’s wedding was a day of joy, love, and adventure. This wedding story goes to show that even when things don't go as planned, they can still turn out to be beautiful, and sometimes, even better than you could have ever imagined. As a photographer, it was an honor to be a part of their special day and to capture these unforgettable moments for them to cherish for a lifetime.
