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!}

brooklyns 2nd birthday – under the sea

I can’t even handle that my baby girl is already two! Where has the time gone? Since my little babe loves the beach, I decided to do an “Under the Sea” theme for her party. She was super excited about it and kept saying “I have mermaid party!” I started working on her party a few months before so I would have time to make most of the decorations myself. I really enjoyed working on everything and I’m stoked on how it all came together. I especially love how treats table turned out. Brooklyn had a blast celebrating her special day with all her friends and family. We love this little girl of ours and can’t wait to see what this year ahead will bring! Happy birthday sweet baby girl!

kelly & matt – july 25, 2015

Kelly and I have known each other since we were twelve years old. We first met each other on the soccer field and you can still find us there on Thursday nights where we play on a co-ed team together. Which brings me to how I met Matt. Matt plays on our team as well and I have gotten to know him pretty well over the past two years. He is sort of opposite of Kelly which is why I think they make such a great couple. They balance each other – in life and on the soccer field.

Kelly and Matt chose to have their ceremony and reception at Dove Canyon Golf Club. I arrived early that day to watch Kelly get ready for her big day. It’s weird because in all the years I’ve known her, we usually see each other in soccer uniforms, no make-up, messy hair and covered in sweat. Today was different. Kelly wore a wedding dress, with flawless make-up and hair and looked absolutely stunning. Her dress was romantic and sexy all at the same time. I’m pretty sure Matt thought the same thing judging by his reaction to seeing her for the first time.

The ceremony was held outside in the courtyard. Following the cutest ring bearers and flower girl, Kelly walked down the aisle with her father. Kelly and Matt had the biggest smiles on their faces throughout their vows and exchanging of the rings. Then they kissed and officially became Mr. and Mrs.!

Cocktails and dancing followed the ceremony and guests had a blast celebrating the newlyweds all night long! Kelly did such a great job personalizing her reception with touches like naming their tables after cities they visited together. Some of my other favorite details from this wedding were the chalkboard signs, the flowers, and the s’mores favors.  I had a blast working this wedding and it was so special to watch someone I’ve known half my life marry her best friend.

{Kelly & Matt – Thank you so much for allowing me to celebrate your big day with you. It was so much fun to be a part of your wedding and watch the two of you commit your lives to one another. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both and look forward to many more soccer games together! Congratulations!}
