Honestly we really cannot gush enough about Hugh Forte Photography! His work is beyond stylish thus the reason why he snags up some of the chicest weddings around. Without a doubt our next wedding is no exception, filled to the brim with elements of the past, whimsical florals and pastel details. Josh and Marci’s Orange County wedding is sure to inspire.
Read on to find out how Marci and Josh’s wedding came to life.
From The Bride on her wedding details!
Inspiration for our wedding came after I found my dress; Blair Britt (our wedding coordinator) and I completely fell in love with the vintage lace look of the dress, and knew we would take advantage of the vintage look throughout the wedding. Josh had no idea what my dress looked like, but liked the colors and theme we proposed. Once we picked the theme of our wedding, we knew we immediately wanted to go with Hugh Forte Photography. His style of photography worked so well with our desired theme.
We had a wonderful time collecting different vases and going to antique stores; however, our true excitement came when Blair Britt found a vintage desk at an antique store that she refurbished for us to use as for our dessert table. We painted it white, and it really set the stage for the cake and dessert (all made by Jay’s Catering). Josh and I also wanted a backdrop for our dessert table, so Blair came up with the idea of making a ribbon backdrop.
Our florists Jayne used about 5 vases/jars at every table. Each table was unique in that we didn’t have a uniform look, but instead put together various combination of jars for the tables. Joie De Vie (the jewelry and paper good company owned/operated by Blair Britt) put together all of the paper goods and bridal/bridesmaid jewelry at our wedding. It was great to maintain the same theme throughout our rsvps, invitations, menus, programs, fans, etc.
The highlight of our wedding was the same day ceremony video footage that was created by Tom O’Hara and Matthew Forrey from Aqua Vivus Productions. They surprised us by creating a quick edit of the ceremony to be played at the reception; it is the one part of our wedding that our guests can’t stop talking about.
