kelsey & dane – august 6, 2016

I first met Kelsey at a Starbucks where we discussed her vision for her wedding day. We talked about her colors, venues and vendors she has chosen. I was thrilled when I found out she’d picked a dear friend of mine, Lindsey Gage, to photograph her wedding. August couldn’t come soon enough!

Fast forward seven months, and their wedding day was here. At some point during the planning process Kelsey had shown me a picture of what her dress looked like. Seeing her in it though was another story. Two words – jaw dropping. She looked flawless and I’m pretty sure Dane thought the same thing as he saw her in it for the first time.

Kelsey and Dane said their I do’s at a beautiful church in Laguna Beach. After the ceremony, guests made their way to Serra Plaza for the reception. The courtyard was decorated with lush greenery, beautiful flowers and romantic candlelight. Some of my favorite wedding details were the gold foil table numbers, the homemade jam favors and the beautiful sweetheart table set-up.

It was so much fun to watch everyone celebrate the newlyweds. Between the shenanigans happening in the photo booth to the flower girls busting moves, it was evident these guests were having a great time. Kelsey and Dane are so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful friends and family. The guests made sure they felt that love all night long.

{Kelsey & Dane – Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your wedding. On top of taking beautiful pictures, you guys sure know how to throw a good party! I wish you both all the love and happiness in the world. Congratulations again!}

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!

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!}
