The Modern Wedding Long Beach

After this wonderful couple met because they were both hiding in the bushes at a party for over an hour, flying in on a helicopter and landing on the tarmac of Long Beach Airport was the only way for them to make the grand entrance into their reception. 

Their bonded quickly over their love of concerts after their meet cute several years ago. Together, they have been to four Coachella's, and after their beautiful wedding with us, look forward to many more Coachella's and concerts together. 

The Modern was decorated brightly, with centerpieces boasting orange, red, and blue flowers and succulents, and photos of their journey together as a couple. It only made sense for her to change from a flowing white gown to a beautiful red dress to really start the party. The band was rocking the dancefloor, and the guests donned flashing rings and glasses, and sang and danced all night long. 

The guests departed with a box full of MnMs™ with their names on them, and the newlywed couple went off to their happy ending.

Justin & Alyssa

We met Justin at the various weddings he films, and so when he asked us to help him with his proposal to Alyssa, we couldn’t help but say yes! In a gazebo surrounded by friends and family, Justin got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life. 

After meeting at church, Justin and Alyssa knew they were destined to be together forever, so on August 25, 2017 Justin’s eyes filled with tears as his beautiful bride glided down the aisle towards their forever. Their friends and families crowded into a small chapel and their pastor sealed the marriage in their short and sweet ceremony. 

A quick shoe change from her nude heels to silver keds marked the beginning of the reception for Alyssa and Justin. After a delicious buffet from Top Hat Productions, the happy couple and their guests danced the night away, sipping sparkling cider. 

The guests went home with beautiful engraved mason jars, and sent off Alyssa and Justin to their honeymoon in a tunnel of bubbles.

Casa Romantica Wedding

Anita and Jeff looked at the breath taking views of Casa Romantica and knew it was the perfect place for their destination wedding. Anita's family being originally from over seas, and Jeff's family from the East Coast, they settled right in the middle. 

Anita's family immigrated to Orange County when she was just 3 and made a home for themselves along the beautiful California Coast. This fed Anita's love for all things California, from the farm to table freshness and the salty breeze that blows off the surf so the wedding represented just this. Their menu represented the best seasonal menu of some California tasty bites such as: Rock Fish Ceviche, Endive & Beet bites, an heirloom tomato salad, roasted local Sea bass and tri-tip. Their caterer, 24 Carrots, truly lived up to the saying "Eating is necessary but cooking is an art". 

Jeff is a music lover! We used his love of eclectic music for the guest sign in book. We had guests sign the vinyl record for their three favorite artists for Anita & Jeff to later frame in their home, certainly one of my favorite touches. 

Jeff and Anita spent time together before the ceremony with their closest family and friends. After a beautiful intimate ceremony with their families, their friends arrived to celebrate oceanside and watch the sunset. 

A night of dinner and dancing kicked off the rest of the evening with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony to honor their parents. It truly a lovely day with all the things that made them special as a couple.
