Leor & Eric | Rancho Bernardo Inn Wedding

Leor and Eric’s love story began at a friend’s wedding in Virginia in 2018. Eric, who lived in DC then, was a groomsman, and Leor, who came from San Diego, was a bridesmaid. The bride and groom, who clearly have a knack for matchmaking, thought they’d make a great match. And boy, were they right! Leor and Eric felt a spark right from the get-go, but they were well aware that long-distance relationships were tough to sustain. Little did they know that destiny had other ideas up its sleeve. Three weeks after the wedding, Eric hopped on a flight to San Diego for a first date that lasted for a whopping 72 hours! And that’s when they realized that they were onto something special.

Fast-forward to Leor and Eric’s Rancho Bernardo Inn wedding, where we had the honor of capturing every precious moment of their traditional Jewish ceremony, right from the signing of the Ketubah to the smashing of the glass. The happiness and love between Leor and Eric was infectious as they enjoyed each other’s company and celebrated with their loved ones.

Leor And Eric’s Rancho Bernardo Inn Wedding

On the morning of their wedding, Leor and Eric were brimming with happiness and anticipation as they prepared for their special day. Leor popped some bubbly with her bridesmaids while Eric and his groomsmen flaunted their gaming skills! 

The couple had a lovely first look before the ceremony. Leor’s dress exuded pure elegance, and she looked oh-so-lovely! Meanwhile, Eric looked dashing in his bow tie as he smiled and eagerly waited for his bride. The sheer happiness on Eric’s face was priceless as he turned around to see Leor for the first time, and the lush greenery surrounding them was the perfect backdrop for this magical moment.

Their group and couples portraits were simply exceptional, and we enjoyed scouting every inch of the Rancho Bernardo Inn to find the most stunning and picturesque spots. Leor and Eric and their wedding party brought their A-game with their effortless posing, bright smiles, and amazing personalities.

Leor and Eric’s Ketubah signing was a special moment filled with love and joy, surrounded by their closest family and friends. But what really stood out for us was the perfect balance of seriousness and playfulness they brought to the occasion. The couple had a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony outdoors and exchanged vows under a gorgeous chuppah. Watching Leor and Eric embrace each tradition with excitement was heartwarming, and they couldn’t have looked happier as they began their journey as husband and wife.

When we say Leor and Eric know how to party, we mean it! Their wedding reception had an electrifying atmosphere, and we couldn’t get enough of it. We’re talking about a packed dance floor, a fun Hora, and a group of friends that kept the party going all night long. To sum it up, it was an EPIC celebration that had us all feeling the love! And just when it couldn’t get any better, Leor surprised us all with a dress change mid-dance party. That’s right, folks, mid-party! Needless to say, we left that wedding feeling equal parts inspired and pumped from all the non-stop grooving.
