When searching for a venue that embodied both the inspiration for a classic modern elopement but with a timeless modern twist, the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano and its beautiful grandiose architecture created the perfect backdrop for our elopement. As we designed the shoot, we focused on curating a design and color palette that was both classic and chic. Zeyda of The Little Fleur Co. created the floral elements for the shoot. During the floral design process, it was important to create arrangements that fit seamlessly with the natural elements of the venue.

The inspiration for this shoot was to create an opportunity to design a modern yet romantic elopement to provide inspiration for couples who had to postpone their larger celebrations but were still inspired to get married on their originally planned wedding date; much like the real married couple, Nuri and Matt, featured here.

Given that the shoot featured a real married couple, we were able to create a beautiful authentic feel to the photographs which was what we were striving to achieve. The photographer Pauline Conway shared this about the experience, “What made this shoot extra special is that our couple had just eloped a few weeks prior so we really wanted to focus on their newly marital bliss and the love they share with one another”. 

When asked, “What is the most honest thing you can say about love?”, Nuri responded with, “Love is a true blessing that not everyone finds. We are so lucky to have found each other and I thank God for providing that in my life”. 

During a year when weddings have been such a hurdle to navigate, having the opportunity to celebrate love and marriage with such a wonderful couple in a beautiful location was such a reminder of how deeply impactful marriage and the celebrations we have around it are.

"Jeannene is an absolute angel and pleasure to work with. She is quick, efficient, professional, and kind. She took care of communication with vendors, planning, my timeline, and made sure everything ran smoothly. She turned my reception into a fairytale. Thank you Jeannene Lillie Events for all your help and making my life so much easier!"

"The only thing I would change about our process is I wish I would have contacted Jeannene sooner!"

Amy and trevor

"Jeannene is such a wonderful person to work with! She helped me coordinate and plan my micro-wedding and kept up with me regularly. It made me feel so special and recognized. I highly suggest her services! Honestly I was so happy to talk to her every time we were on the phone because she always wanted to get my feedback."

"Jeannene seriously goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and really has an amazing eye for your design."

Krista and Deno

I am not the typical girl who dreamt about all the details of planning my wedding. I really just wanted to show up the day of and call it a day. 2020 surely threw us multiple curve balls but working with Jeannene Lillie Events really allowed me to have a stress free wedding planning experience, and my big day was more perfect than I ever could have dreamed. My vendors were all on the same page and the day flowed so smoothly. The team helped set up decorations and moved my florals and they looked stunning. Everyone we worked with was so flexible and friendly, and I would recommend them 1000 times over.

"Jeannene took care of the littlest details that I would have never even thought about."
