An epic ceremony-stopping musical surprise. Rubber chickens. Inside jokes for vows. Party of the century.
What a kickoff to a lifetime with your best friend.
Venue: Loft on Pine
San Pedro is my hometown.
I've always said that San Pedro is just an old fashioned small town, disguised as a Los Angeles suburb. Families all know each other, friends from elementary school are your friends for life, and memories are made by the cliffs, the loading docks, and in little spots like Averill Park.
So when I found out Vanessa and Bryan would be getting married in Averill Park, and having their reception on 7th Street in downtown San Pedro, I couldn't have been more thrilled. I knew it would be the kind of event that everyone wants to attend- the kind of wedding that feels like a family reunion, even for those who have never met.
I was so right.
Congratulations, Vanessa and Bryan- I can't thank you enough for letting me a part of this day.
I know you have years of memories to make together in this special place.
They started off their day at the St. Regis in Monarch Beach. Then they took their party to the water, where it belonged. A few hiccups in the day pushed the ceremony timing back, which resulted in a fiery sunset breaking through their first kiss. Sometimes moments are crafted by something other than us, and they happen just as they are meant to.
Stephanie and Josh- may the entirety of your marriage be as fun and hilarious as your wedding day, and may you always celebrate with your toes in the sand.
Special thank you to coordinators at The Gal, The Plan, The Wedding.
Did I mention that they are swing dancers?
Their bridal party was hilarious, good looking, and fun. The reception was absolutely filled to the brim with laughter, dancing, and fabulous music. If they weren't being sent off with bubbles in a Rolls Royce, I don't think they ever would have left the party.
And who can blame them? Look how much fun everyone had. :)
Again, I have to say that my second shooter, Kym Vitar Photography, was absolutely indespensible. Thank you Kym for your support, your vision, and your talent.
They had a first look, and it should be noted that he always smiles when he kisses her. Her father drove them in his vintage Rolls Royce. They said "I Do" in the garden of the Woman's Club in Orange, as guests sang hymns and applauded.
Here is Part One of Lauren and Ted's wedding day.
(As always, special thank you to my second shooter, Kym Vitar Photography)
Come back tomorrow for Part Two- the bridal party, the dancing, the details, the gorgeous, gorgeous exit... you won't wanna miss it!
