real wedding: carrie & les 11/15/2014

Carrie and Les, where to begin! Carrie and I met through the OC LMU Alumni Association, and we found out that our families knew each other for years. I can’t say that hasn’t happened before with my family! When I said I was a wedding coordinator here in Orange County and a LMU alum, she basically hired me right then and there. It was a perfect match! I had a wonderful time assisting throughout the entire planning process, making sure that Carrie’s “coastal” wedding surpassed her expectations. The wedding ceremony took place at LMU Sacred Heart Chapel which held a close place to her heart, followed by cocktail hour and dinner reception at the Marina del Rey Marriott up on the rooftop ballroom with 270 degree views of the Los Angeles skyline and beaches. Absolutely breathtaking!

With the help of our wonderful vendors, we were able to turn Carrie’s coastal wedding vision into reality with the stunning floral arrangements provided by The Bloom of Time, and the gorgeous linen provided by Designer Specialty Linens. Every detail was taken into consideration from the stationery, Invitiation Deign Studio, to the cake, Vanilla Bake Shop. Carrie also wanted to incorporate interacitve pieces to the evening, so with a photobooth provided by Watertree Events and a live protrait of the reception painted by artist Karen Wall Garrison throughout the evening for guests to come up and watch, there was entertainment all night long.

Thanks to all of my vendors, especially to our photographers, Tim and Dea Meyer, and videographer, John Goolsby, who capture the love and wonderful memories of Carrie and Les’s unforgetable wedding day. Enjoy!
