Tim & Jessica are the type of couple that you feel blessed to know.  The type of people that you walk away from feeling happy, enlightened, and energized.  They have a such a beautiful, positive energy…not to mention great chemistry!  It has been an absolute joy and pleasure working with them!

Want to more about how they met?  In their words:

Tim and Jess met for the very first time at Chipman Jr. High school in Bakotucky, California. Over the years Tim and his group of friends would become friends with the “Rupe or J Girls” and they would all eventually attend Highland High School together. During high school things got a bit awkward and they “dated” for a short time but things just didn’t work out and they eventually went their separate ways. Tim left for Long Beach State after high school and Jess started beauty school…. Fast forward to 2011…Through the grapevine Tim found out that Jess was single and so he started to try and reach out via the social media platform known as Facebook. They chatted on occasion and eventually Jess agreed to grab coffee with him. Things started slowly the first few weeks but it was only a matter of time before they realized that they had a lot in common and had very similar interests and values. Since then they have grown to love each others families, their friends, and most importantly each other.  

And then, because I just can’t tell the story the way they can, read about their proposal on their wedding website.  😉  Best.Story.EVER.

Now that  you’ve gotten to know a little bit of their story… let’s fast forward to the biggest day of their lives yet…  The day they became Mr. & Mrs. Statezni.

It was a typical, beautiful day in Southern California… the bride and her entourage were busy buzzing around their bridal suite laughing and having a great time getting ready for a fabulous event.  Jessica was calm and cool and throughly enjoying her day with the most important people in her life.

A few floors down from the bridal suite, Tim was quietly reflecting on the day… choosing to get ready alone, he had a moment to go over his vows and get pumped up for the speech of his life.

Once the beautiful bride was done with makeup and hair, it was time to get her dressed to go meet her Prince Charming!

Jessica & Tim chose to do a first look/reveal.  I love when couples opt for portraits before the ceremony.  The moment they get to share is intimate, stress free and quiet.

We had originally planned on another location for the first look but when we had an unexpected situation arise, we quickly improvised and chose this spot by the Segerstrom Center instead.  It was a perfect spot to share their intimate moment! 🙂

Next stop, Mariners Church in Irvine, Ca!


Jessica and Tim shared the most incredible, sincere, heartfelt, tear inducing vows.  Raw and real, I absolutely crumbled into a mess of sniffles and giggles along with the crowd.  LOVE.

At the end of the ceremony, Mr. & Mrs. Statezni rang the church bell to seal the deal!

Travel with me now to the Center Club in Costa Mesa, Ca where Jessica & Tim finished celebrating with style and flair with their closest friends and family members. <3


Last but not least… we had to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings of the club.


Aren’t the Statezni’s one of the most beautiful couples EVER?? 🙂

Congratulations Jessica & Tim!  May you have a long, wonderful, and happy marriage! 😀
