real wedding: christina & jerome 8/9/2013

Christina and Jerome had already started a beautiful family of their own, all that was missing was a beautiful wedding celebration of their love! In front of their 2 adorable children, a great family, and a fun group of friends, Christina and Jerome were so excited to tie the knot and truly make it “official”.

A perfect August Friday was the big day. Clear weather on the coast allowed the amazing California coastline at the Ritz-Carlton to set the perfect background for the ceremony. The couple chose dark purple, black and white for our colors which looked so regal and elegant! The Sunset Terrace looked just perfect with two beautiful arrangements from Bella Blooms and just a few flower touches down the aisle.

After our Ritz-Carlton ceremony, the bridal party jumped into a shuttle and was taken to Salt Creek Grill. The Patio at Salt Creek was the perfect outdoor venue for our reception. We draped the back of the patio with black satin pipe and drape, and used the purple and white to accent the space. Simple submerged flower and floating candle arrangements looked beautiful on the tables, and the café lights overhead created just the right amount of glow as the sun went down.

Guests enjoyed a great meal, an open bar, and lots of dancing as the couple celebrated together! Everyone had such a great time, especially the couple’s 2 children who were spotted on the dance floor for most of the evening! 🙂

Christina and Jerome, I had so much fun working with you both and planning with you in the months that led up to the wedding. Congrats on a beautiful wedding, and a beautiful family! It was an honor!
