Teaching Hand in Hand

Our favorite elementary school teachers, Hilary & Jared’s wedding at Giracci Vineyards and Farms was such a beautiful day complete with gorgeous flowers from The Hive.  Kate Noelle and Yours Truly Media captured the charming day.  

This cute couple started their romance while teaching at the same middle school and during their ceremony in the Oak Tree Court some of their students provided live music. The students also surprised Hilary by playing the music for her father-daughter dance later on that night. Hilary & Jared loved including the students in their special day, they even had fun gifts waiting on the tables in the barn for all the children present at the wedding.  After enjoying some games of corn hole during cocktail hour the celebrating continued at Giracci’s barn with Canyon Catering, M Cake Sweets, and Extreme DJs getting everyone out on the dance floor. At the end of the night Hilary & Jared ran through a tunnel of bubbles to their gorgeous classic car provided by Lake Forest Limo. It was such a pleasure helping Hilary & Jared create their perfect day and celebrating alongside of them!

Mission Magic

Not even rain could stop this couple from coming together as one at the gorgeous Franciscan Gardens venue in San Juan Capistrano. Although this wedding was originally supposed to be outdoors, the final product was still breathtaking.

The couple took mesmerizing photos at the mission located near the venue. The couple was surrounded by friends and family and consumed great food and danced all night long. Instead of a cake the couple decided to have donuts, which were provided by Donut Junkie.

The night was filled with great memories and promises for a prosperous future. Congrats Michelle and Chris!

Hilary & Michael

On April 28th at the breathtaking Montage Laguna Beach, Hilary and Michael came together in holy matrimony. Although the couple went to college together out of state, they decided to get married a place so close to home that the bride said she could see her childhood house from the venue. After having a beautiful ceremony with an ocean view, they transferred into the immaculate ballroom where they ate wonderful food and danced the night away. The ballroom was filled with personal touches, that showcased all Hilary and Michael have experienced together such as their trips around the world and where they had their first date. The venue was also adorned by beautiful white florals provided by Blooma Flowers, touches of sea glass, and pastel pink shells that perfectly complemented this beachside location. They danced all night long thanks to the entertainment, Extreme DJ. The night was filled with friends, family, and new beginnings.

A Destination Wedding to Sunny Southern California with a Stunning Hailey Paige Bride!

In the heart of Silverado Canyon, Haley and Matthew became Mr. and Mrs. Hubley at Giracci Vineyards on November 18, 2018! It was a charming and intimate wedding with everyone traveling from Wisconsin to celebrate the love of these two! The Bloom of Time made a gorgeous arch that was filled with white roses and hydrangeas, with pops of soft pink and yellows in various other lovely floral’s. Their ceremony was sweet and filled with laughter thanks to the officiant David from Great Officiants! Once they had their first kiss as husband and wife, they went on to take pictures with the bridal party and then intimate photos of just the two of them in the beautiful field on the venue. Ashley Paige with Ashley Paige Photography did an amazing job capturing this very special occasion! The ceremony area under the oak trees was flipped into a gorgeous reception area where the guests were invited after cocktail hour to welcome Haley and Matt into their first dance. The Dj Jeanette with SOS entertainment did a great job of keeping the flow of the speeches and special dances before the sun went down! Dinner was buffet style and provided by Canyon Catering. Once everyone was done enjoying their delicious meals they continued to dance and party the night away under the stars! This was definitely a celebration to remember for all those you got to be apart of their big day!
