Getting Ready Before the Long Branch Saloon Wedding and First Look
Getting ready for the wedding is always such a special part of every couples wedding day. Liezl and Brian went all out with modern but distinctly Wild West styles. Liezl looked so radiant before the ceremony. We couldn’t get enough of Liezl’s amazing floral crown! This couple’s style was beyond words! Liezl and Brian’s first looks was incredible sweet, as they usually are, and we were so happy to part of their special day!
Liezl and Brian’s Long Branch Saloon wedding ceremony was beautiful. The weather was perfect, and the vows were touching and beautiful. It was an amazing day shared with friends and family. The old timey church with it’s rustic décor and barn style doors created a bewitching atmosphere during the ceremony.

From the couple:
We were inspired by The movie, The Notebook, where Allie and Noah grew up in a simpler time, married, and lived happily ever after. Our family loves themed parties, and it was exciting to see everyone all gussied up! We wanted the intimate small-town feel and glamor of that era.
We celebrated with a Filipino Catholic wedding, with many Sponsors in tow of loved ones who have supported us throughout the years. So, we celebrated lighting our unity candle, placed a cord around us to symbolize our unbreakable bond of marriage, a veil to represent our oneness, and exchanged Arras to remind us of good stewardship, that we will support each other forever.
I chose large dramatic burgundy seasonal flowers. I had gorgeous long strands of navy ribbon to tie my bouquet together I made sure my favorite bouquet fillers, thistles and amaranth were incorporated, to add some country careless flair, and had a matching dramatic flower veil which you can see in our Long Branch Saloon & Farms Wedding Photos.
We wanted a feast to match our venue! We asked Cameroon’s to cater with a large BBQ feast of ribs, sausages, and salmon.
Also, we played a “Drunk History” version movie in the perspective of our parents, maid of honor and best man about our blooming love story.
We wanted a rustic wedding to reflect a simpler, yet glamorous time. I am in love with the classic, lace, unique and dramatic look. Red lips, cat eyes, and rouge cheeks. Men wore long sleeved button shirts, suspenders, navy chinos, and whatever brown shoes they had in their closet to add a rustic feel.
We met in Capuchino High School in International Baccalaureate Art class in 2006. He made me laugh so much, and taught me how to slow down and enjoy life.
On March 16th, 2018, Brian and I planned a trip to Joshua Tree. After dinner Brian asked me to check out the stars outside. Brian always slows down, so I didn’t think much of him asking. I’ve never been to the desert, but could tell the sky was crystal clear. Wrapped up in Mexican blankets, we stood outside and watched the stars twinkle. Brian asked, “do you like to travel with me?” I said, thinking that was a weird question, “of course!” He turned me towards him, and presented the ring asking, “will you travel with me for the rest of our lives?” I cried, happy tears, and happily said yes. We then witnessed falling stars blanket the sky left and right. I felt like the heavens blessed us that evening, I’ll never forget that night. We were excited for our ceremony when we would be proclaimed man and wife!
