real wedding: sarah & kris 1/5/13

My first wedding of 2013 was such a sweet celebration of love! Sarah and Kris were married on January 5th at Yorba Linda Calvary Chapel Church. Feeling very comfortable with the planning process, Sarah hired me to pull together all of the details and then execute her big day! It was a beautiful winter wedding with personal details everywhere!

Sarah and Kris used black, white, and red to decorate their space. The church was stunning, with winter “snow” and lanterns all along the aisle. The family made an amazing arch that was in the doorway, with hanging crystals, snow and tree branches….. so pretty! The traditional church ceremony was so sweet, with personal vows from the bride and groom.

The ballroom was classic with black linen, a black dance floor, with white and red accents. Lanterns, snow and candlelight made the room feel so warm! A fun grand entrance on the stage with the entire bridal party and an amazing guitarist played during dinner kept all of the guests entertained!

The couple used personalized table numbers with their photos, as well as a family bible for guests to highlight their favorite verses, just a few of the small touches. The animated cake topper was also a hit, no traditional, boring cake top here! 🙂

Sarah and Kris, it was so wonderful to work with you and your families! It was a beautiful wedding and I was happy to be a part of it! Here’s to years and years of happiness!
