Judy and Pablo's Wedding Film // Terranea in  Rancho Palos Verdes


Judy and Pablo's Wedding Film // Terranea in Rancho Palos Verdes

Judy and Pablo are a remarkable couple and their day was epic! Judy told us from the beginning that there would be 2 ceremonies on her wedding day. They would start with a traditional Catholic one and then move on to a fun whimsical one, that would be performed at Terranea. A reception would follow. How did it turn out? Well, you will have to watch and see! Be sure to check out Judy and Pablo's tango- personally we think they're ready for Dancing With The Stars! On a serious note though, they truly were meant for each other- so much that their wedding gifts to each other were almost identical! Judy wrote Pablo love letters for a few weeks before the wedding and also gave him some of their older ones from anniversaries and important times. Pablo's gift was just as cool. It turns out that he had kept notes he wrote to Judy for an Advent Calendar for Christmas, then had them framed! So long story short, they both gave each other love letters. Now, they have their happily ever after- the wedding film, the ultimate love letter! ;-) Congrats once again Judy and Pablo!!
