Yannine and Glenn’s 10 Year Wedding Anniversary 6.30.18

 

Yannine and Glenn are long time friends of my husband. They didn’t originally have a lavish wedding so at their 10 year mark, they threw one big wedding anniversary surrounded by their family and friends. All the decorations were DIY by the bride and groom and we set almost everything up the night before. The food was ordered from different locations (their favorite places) and family and friends volunteered to pick everything up. It was one big family and friends gathering celebrating Yannine and Glenn.

From Winnie, Jr. Coordinator:

Yannine and Glenn’s BIG DAY wasn’t your typical wedding but rather their 10 YEAR wedding anniversary! They wanted to spend this special moment in time with all of their family, friends, and most importantly daughter, Celezte. 

For their special day the biggest thing they emphasized that they wanted was to make sure that they got to have FUN and enjoy everything with everyone. They weren’t too caught up in all the details and routine of your typical wedding. They were super sweet and laid back and simply went with the flow of things. As long as everyone and them were having fun that was all that mattered. 

Of course, on our side of things the day did not go without a few hiccups but that is expected when planning an event. Between receiving some late decor, late access to the venue, an issue with seating arrangements, and missing family we had our hand fulls. But that is why we are there.  Being quick on your feet when things go array comes with the territory.  Thankfully we were able to execute everything without disturbing the couple’s special day which allowed them to enjoy it all. 

With tons of food, dancing, and laughter Yannine and Glenn’s 10 year anniversary definitely was one, big party full of love for the happy couple. Hearing them say they had tons of fun by the end of the night reassured me that everything went well and that we did our job.  Knowing that is what puts a smile on our faces with a feeling of accomplishment.

Victoria and Aneesh’s Wedding 6.23.18

 

When Victoria and Aneesh booked our services for partial planning, they only had a date in mind but no location yet. We had about 5 months to plan, booking a couple more vendors and finding the location for them as venues get booked up fairly fast in the summer. We looked at several locations and they decided to have their wedding at the Marriott Fullerton. I’m glad everything worked even though we hit a few snags along the way. Victoria and Aneesh opted for a tea ceremony and a traditional Indian ceremony. I love when cultures blend!

Love the vibrant colors of the Indian Ceremony.

Leslie and Claude’s Wedding 5.19.18

 

Leslie and Claude are family on my husband side. When they got engaged, I expected Leslie to call me to discuss wedding planning but she was hesitant so I pressed her to do so. I was more than happy to help out and be part of their wedding planning journey. I’m so happy to see them tie the knot after so many years together!

From Lily, Associate Coordinator:

Leslie and Claude were so much fun to work with! They wanted it to be a special day, not just for them, but for their families to celebrate their matrimony. It was a very emotional day for everyone. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the entire wedding party cry before during rehearsal! You could tell everyone had been waiting a long time for them to share their vows. At the start of their wedding day, it was so laid back, just like they wanted. The location and venue was beautiful! We walked along the train tracks and visited Old Town San Juan Capistrano. At the reception, Claude was tricked into thinking Leslie had a dress change. He was pleasantly surprised when the bridal party started a dance performance, just for him! There was so much love in that room. I’m so happy for you both and I hope you have many more years of happiness!! 

I love these sweet mother daughter moments.

If this doesn’t make you cry…

Family Blending!

They make a great family! So much fun and silliness!

 

Leslie and Claude, we are so happy that you trusted us to be part of your wedding day and welcoming us into your family. It was such a heartfelt moment seeing the 2 of you blend your family.

We love you and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
