I love it when I see a wedding detail that I have never seen before ... especially because it rarely happens!! Like the doilies used on the napkins of this Orange County wedding - brilliant detail! I am always a fan of sparkly table linens - they are so gorgeous! I love everything about this wedding! Enjoy!
We always wanted to have a beach wedding, so everything trickled down from that. As far as the ceremony goes, we stuck to summer colors that we thought would fit well with the magnificent view. For the reception, however, we used gradations of deep reds, purples and pinks, which added a more moody, vibrant aspect.
We worked with Chelsea Navran from Details Details Wedding and Event Planning. They came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Our day would not have come together as well as it did without Chelsea's help. She was very professional and patient and introduced us to great vendors. She also communicated with them on our behalf and conveyed to them our ideas and preferences. All in all, working with Chelsea removed almost entirely the stress associated with wedding planning, for which we are very grateful.
We used Braedon Photography. We were very impressed with the quality of the work Braedon had done. Also, he traveled to New York to do our engagement shoot and spent some time with us and we got to know him and he got to know us. Wedding photos are very personal and that extra effort by Braedon made us very comfortable.
The venue of our wedding was the Ritz Calton, Lagune Niguel. The Monarch Bay Sunset Terrace provided a stunning setting that was a big reason for our choice. Also, the sales and catering staff were extremely accomodating and professional, which made it very easy for us to go with them.
Our florist was White Lilac. We loved the flowers, but also the entire set up of the wedding that they arranged. We cannot say enough great things about the job that they did - from helping us think through the concepts to putting it all together, Jane and her team were very creative and professional. We can honestly say both the ceremony and reception were exactly as we imagined them, and we would not have changed a thing.
We hired Undercover Live Entertainment. We had a great experience working with them - we very much enjoyed their music selection and we also loved their cover of our first dance song. In addtion, they also worked with us to provide a harp to play during our ceremony and helped made our day special.
