Pick a first-look venue
Our wedding took place on March 28th, 2015 on the most perfect spring evening. We had the pleasure of celebrating our event at the beautiful garden courtyard of Franciscan Gardens. After we finished getting ready in the bridal suite and Groom's room, we headed over to the San Juan Capistrano Mission to do our first look photos. We frolicked through the mission to get the most perfect shots.
Silver sequin heart
Then it was game time for the ceremony. The courtyard was packed with all of our closest friends and family and down the aisle was a beautiful arch filled with bright pop colors of peach and pink flowers. At the top of the aisle right before the arch laid a 3 foot silver sequin heart on the ground where we stood. We also had a string quartet who played the tunes from Avicii to The Beatles. For our unity ceremony, we decided to plant a peach tree in a pot together.
8 foot tall chalkboard
Once the ceremony was over it was dinner time. Everyone found their seats from a 8ft tall chalkboard with the names listed in whimsical calligraphy. The tables were adorned with silver mercury glass vases of all sizes filled with flowers on top of black and white striped runners. There was a 7 foot marquee light heart hanging from the pergola in the middle of the courtyard amongst vintage chairs, a sofa, and coffee table. Everyone had their Lette Macaroon favors cutely boxed on their dinner plates. Once dinner had ended, the music started and everyone rushed to the dance floor and the photobooth.
Same day video premiere
The DJ made a special announcement asking everyone to gather around a large screen..it was a same-day video premiere for everyone to see from the videographer. (See the video for yourself below, filmed by Amari Productions.) When we walked through the longest line of people we had seen all cheering for us as we walked through with the light from the sparklers illuminating their smiles, we thought to ourselves, "Wow, this is hands down the greatest feeling in the world." Our wedding day was the best day we have ever experienced in our lives and we are eternally grateful to all that made it so magical for us.
