Jenn & Mike planned an absolutely spectacularly detailed wedding, that made me so proud of their hard work. And every detail came to fruition at their lovely October wedding , evident by the pics below….
Jenn & Mike selected the gorgeous Saint Vincent De Paul Catholic Church for their traditional catholic ceremony, followed by their reception at none other than the regal Richard Nixon Library East Room. Jenn’s parents were very sweet to rent an amazing beachside home for Jenn and all her bridesmaids to use and get ready the day of the wedding. Chris & Erinn Austin, from White Haute Photography, and the wonderful Jim Breen, from Breen Film Productions, (two of my new Fav’s) met Jenn and her girls at their beachside bungalow to catch Jenn getting ready for her big day. Isn’t she just stunning!?!?!
Chris then scooted over to see Mike and the dapper groomsmen putting the final touches on their tuxes near their Huntington Beach hotel.
Jenn & Mike’s ceremony started just around 2pm, where they saw each other for the first time… Made my heart leap for joy when I saw this pic capturing Jenn seeing Mike for the first time in the church… Lovely!!!
After the ceremony, guests showered the Newlyweds with some great “poppers,” which ironically don’t even create a mess because they stay attached to the cannister.. brilliant!
And while the Bridal Party headed to downtown Hungtington Beach for pics (the bride and groom in their own Classic Limo followed by the Bridal Party in a nice stretch limo), guests ventured out to Yorba Linda, via their great shuttle busses provided by the couple, to enjoy cocktails and Hors D’ Oeuvres by none other than the brilliant Jason’s Catered Events.
Some of the lovely details that Jenn set up for her guests to relish in ranged from the personalized placecards, to a jazz trio led by Matt Oden, to the old family photos on the mantels of the East Room, to the fantastically fun Photo Booth by Four Quick Clicks.
Jenn also had an amazing eye for arousing color combinations. The color palette she selected for her wedding was full of Teal, Champagne, Ivory with a Splash of Deep Red. Absolutely breathtaking, isn’t it!?!?! The East Room was set in all its glory by stunning crystal petastoles and arrangements by none other than Flower Allie, and soft uplighting and tunes by the sweet and talented Jason, from Visions Entertainment.
Mike & Jenn even splurged a bit for their guests by filling a sweet dessert station by yummy after yummy. Melody from Sweet & Saucy, was fantastic too. Every item was not only delicious eye candy, but guests kept coming back for more until it was literally all gone… Silly Jenn thought she’d have some leftovers to send home with guests… Not a chance!
As the evening came to an end, Mike and Jenn relished in their absolutely stunning wedding. Thanks you two for letting me play a small part in your wonderful wedding. Here’s to many amazing years for both of you!
