PLACE/CITY LOCALE OF WEDDING Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes
NAME OF PHOTOGRAPER Joel Maus-Studio EMP (studioemp.com)
HOW THEY MET We met at Taco Tuesday at El Ranchito on the Newport peninsula through a mutual friend
THE PROPOSAL Jeff proposed on Christmas morning. We woke up, opened all our gifts and he had wrapped a beautiful ribbon through our Christmas tree that had a white leather bag attached, when I opened the bag, there was a ring box and Jeff got on one knee and proposed. I cried, a lot. It was perfect!
NUMBER OF GUESTS 200 Guests
BRIDAL GOWN My dress was by Vera Wang (the Gemma). It was strapless with beautiful fabric pieces going across the entire gown. It was really fitted to below my knees and then got very full with a big train. It had little Champagne sequins and pearls throughout the bottom.
WEDDING COLORS White, Ivory, Champagne, Nude- very natural soft colors
WEDDING CAKE Our wedding cake was insane! I wanted to go all out! It was 6 tiers, all white with a huge flower draping down the front. We got it at Sweet and Saucy (sweetandsaucyshop.com), by far the best cake I've ever had!
FAVORITE MOMENT I have two….my first most memorable moment was when I walked down the aisle and Jeff saw me for the first time... His face was priceless. My second favorite moment was our first dance... There were over 200 hundred people watching yet it felt like Jeff and I were the only two people on the room. We danced to "You Make It Real" by James Morrison
THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE THE WEDDING Romantic, Vintage, Classic
FAVORS FOR GUESTS We had a photo booth so everyone got to take the pictures home in a cute clear package that had our names and wedding date on it tied with a pretty piece of lace. The guests names and table numbers were in cute little gold frames which they also could take home.
