marissa & da – july 16, 2016

Marissa and Da chose Talega Golf Club as their wedding ceremony and reception venue (always a favorite spot of mine). I had so much fun with these two as we worked together to plan a fabulous wedding. From meetings over coffee to meetings over flowers, we were always laughing and having a good time. I couldn’t wait for their big day!

Their wedding day had arrived and they couldn’t have prayed for better weather! With the help of her bridesmaids, she stepped into her dress and put on her heels. She was ready to get married and she couldn’t have looked more beautiful! Surrounded by their closest friends and family, Marissa and Da promised their lives to one another – and tears were flowing.  After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and lawn games followed by a beautiful reception.

Some of my favorite details from their wedding were the flowers, the sequin linens and the yummy dessert bar! Side note *** Marissa and Da love to eat! So they made sure there was no shortage of food options at their wedding. Their guests enjoyed a delicious dinner followed by a dessert bar, candy buffet, ice cream sandwiches and a food truck! Even with all of the food options as well as a selfie station, DJ Sota did an awesome job keeping the dance floor packed all night!

{ Marissa & Da – Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you on your wedding day! You are truly meant for one another and it was so special to watch you say “I do”.  We wish you nothing but the best in your future adventures as husband and wife. Congratulations again! }

superhero 5th birthday party

For my son’s 5th birthday, we decided on a Superhero theme. I was really excited because I already had a ton of ideas on what I wanted to do for food and decorations. I was trying to stay away from the superhero section at Party City since I wanted it to be a little more unique. I decided to make it more comic-like. Using inspiration from Pinterest (of course), we put together a pretty super party. My son was super stoked on the Kryptonite jello, the power rings, and the cupcakes. The kids had a blast and the party was a success!

P.S. All party decor is for sale! If you or someone you know is interested, please contact me!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from his special day.

andrew + ashley – april 16, 2016

We had so much fun working with Andrew and Ashley on their wedding. Their ceremony was held at Noguchi Garden and the reception was at the fabulous Mastro’s Steakhouse. They incorporated teal and purple into their color scheme and drew inspiration from peacock feathers. Some of my favorite details were the bridesmaids dresses, the candy buffet and of course, the delicious food! All in all, it was a great day celebrating two people so clearly in love!

{Andrew & Ashley – Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding. You two were a blast to work with! We loved getting to watch the two of you commit your lives to one another and we know you will live happily ever after! Congratulations! }

mike & michelle – february 19, 2016

I first met Michelle on the soccer field and then again as a bridesmaid in one of my friend’s wedding. Lucky for me, she contacted me when she got engaged and I was thrilled to be her wedding coordinator. Michelle and her fiancé Mike chose Rancho Las Lomas as the site for their wedding celebration. RLL is one of my favorite venues in Orange County and I love every chance I get to work there. It is such a beautiful location! Michelle spent the morning with her bridesmaids preparing for her big day. She was so excited to finally be in this moment and getting ready to marry the man of her dreams. I got to sneak a peak of her in her wedding dress before their first look and she looked absolutely stunning! I could tell by the expression on Mike’s face that he thought the same. 

It was a perfect day for a romantic outdoor wedding. All the details came together and the stage was set for Michelle to make her entrance down the aisle. She looked so genuinely happy. As she made her way down the aisle, holding her father’s arm, she locked eyes with her soon to be husband and all was right in the world.  Michelle and Mike said their vows and promised each other forever in front of all of their friends and family as witnesses. They sealed their vows with a kiss and then the true celebration began.

As the sun set, guests made their way to their seats in anticipation for the newlywed’s big entrance. Michelle and Mike crossed the bridge into their reception and started it off with their first dance as husband and wife! Toasts were made and tears were shed as the bridal party shared stories of Michelle and Mike’s journey to find one another. Soon after, a delicious dinner was served and then the party started on the dance floor. Guests danced the night away and had a blast in the photo booth. Some of my favorite details were the bride’s dress, the floral arch and the wedding cake. All in all, it was the perfect celebration for a perfect couple. 

{Mike & Michelle – Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day! I truly enjoyed watching the two of you commit your lives to one another and felt so honored to be a witness to your great love. I wish you all the best in your future as Mr. and Mrs. and hope that your love grows deeper as the years go on. Congratulations!}

steve & kristin – december 4, 2015

When I first met Kristin for coffee, we discussed her wedding vision and she told me that the planning part was not her cup of tea. She was excited to get married but not so excited about organizing all the things that led up to the big day. That’s when I knew we would make the perfect team! The two of us worked together over the course of a year to plan every last detail of this wedding. We searched high and low for venues, consulted for hours on floral arrangements, and truly made her Pinterest board come to life.

Kristin and Steve chose Grand Tradition as the site for their wedding. On the perfect December morning, Kristin prepared to marry her best friend – all six foot six of him. After hair, make-up and a little champagne, she put on her wedding dress. She looked absolutely breathtaking! Their ceremony was held in front of a beautiful waterfall surrounded by lush greenery. They committed their lives to one another and sealed their vows with a kiss.

As guests sipped on cocktails and mingled, we put the finishing touches on the reception. Everything turned out exactly as we envisioned. I love the colors Kristin chose for her wedding. Shades of purple, burgundy and blush with pops of green made for gorgeous florals. I also love how all the bridesmaids chose different color dresses to compliment the color palette.  Some of my other favorite details from this wedding were the sequin linens, the succulent place settings and the amazing dessert bar.  It was all perfection! After dinner and toasts, the true celebration began. Guests danced the night away and had a blast in the slow motion photo booth. All in all, it was an amazing night for an even more amazing couple.

{Kristin & Steve – Words can’t express how thankful I am to have met the two of you. Your wedding was so beautiful and it was an honor to have been a part of it. I know the two of you have a lifetime of adventure, laughter and many board games ahead of you. I adore the both of you and am so happy you found each other. Congratulations again and best wishes as Mr. & Mrs. Anderson!}
