Wedding at Mission San Juan Bautista

Susan and Arrin were married in the historic mission at San Juan Bautista on April 22, 2017.  They wanted the wedding to be romantic and timeless and thought the historic mission, with it’s rose garden courtyard, was the perfect place.  Susan is from Scotland, and brother, sister and close friend traveled all the way from Scotland for the wedding.  She wore a long champagne gown with vintage lace and amazing flowery sleeves.  A highland bagpiper played as she walked the corridor to the mission doors and entered, starting the ceremony with a regal entrance.  After a short receiving line in the rose garden, the guests were led by the bagpiper to the reception at Casa Maria.       Photography: Tony Fitzgerald Photography  |  Venue:  Mission San Juan Bautista  |  Catering and Cake: Classic Catering  | Bagpiper: Lynne S.
