California wedding photographer Jose Villa chose the rustic background of La Purisima, the most extensively restored mission in California, for his romantic wedding shoot styled by California event planner Joy Proctor. In addition to the restored original buildings, the nearly 2,000 acre park is home to 25 miles of hiking trails and a modern Visitor Center and Exhibit Hall, surrounded by hundreds of horses and cattle. You will fall in love with the charm and old world quality of La Purisima through the amazing eyes of Jose Villa.

Joy Proctor selected lace gowns by Inbal Dror, perfect for the elegance and charm of the poetic setting, with Kelly Kaufman Designs accenting the pink palette of the mission buildings. Known for her flowing, painterly style, Kelly is among Southern California's top floral designers. Her romantic bouquets are as timeless as the setting. Makeup artist Janet Villa added to the timeless look with natural hair styling, and ethereal pastel makeup.
