Romantic Wedding at Benedict Castle in Riverside, California.

Benedict Castle Wedding : Marie + Westley

In a dark and crowded bar, he saw her smile light up the room. She was more beautiful than anything he had ever seen and just had to talk to her. That conversation changed the rest of their lives.

Over two years, they bonded at the Angel’s Stadium watching their favorite baseball team, snuggled up watching movies together, and spending time with Marie’s three wonderful children.

On a warm and sunny afternoon in Riverside, California Marie and Westley invited their closest family and friends to the historical Benedict Castle to witness the magic that brought them together. Their love was blessed, and watched it seep into event the deepest crevices of the vaulted ceilings.

Marie and Westley, thank you for being so kind and welcoming us into your lives. Your day was beyond perfect and we wish you nothing but the best as you start on this new adventure of your life. Much love and appreciation…Michaela and Josh.
