Love Filled Military Wedding!

The wedding celebration of Rachel and Christian Gonzales was held at the MCRD Chapel with the reception in the Bayview Room.  We loved this couple!  It was a military wedding with many friends and family traveling in from all over the U.S. to celebrate the wedding!  Rachel and Christian were such a lovely couple to work with.  Their appreciation and love for everyone was wonderful and their thoughtfulness showed through everything they planned throughout the wedding for their guests.  The couple had a neighbor and close friend officiate the wedding so it was even more special and memorable.  The sword arch was also handled by close friends.  The wedding colors were a lovely silver, platinum and hints of burnt orange.  The reception was exciting with Premier Entertainment covering the music and Lovely Photo Booth providing the photo booth fun!  The couple held a weekend of celebration for all the guests starting from their rehearsal dinner in Hillcrest to their wedding to the Sunday Barbeque at their home.  Vendors included Caprice Strings, Laura Christin Photography, Eagle Lion, Premier Entertainment, Barliz Flowers, Excellent Designs, and Lovely Photo Booth.  All photos courtesy of Laura Christen Photography.

Dressed Up Picnic Wedding!

At Your Side Planning (formerly, Ah! Le Party) recently coordinated a beautiful “Dressed Up Picnic” wedding in Julian, CA.  The wedding was held at the Pine Hills Lodge right outside of the small town.  This venue has cabins, an outdoor ceremony, two options for a reception including a banquet room in a wooden building with it’s own fire place!  The area is very peaceful and tranquil.  The ceremony for Jesika and Gabe was held on the lawn area and the reception indoors.  The area has an abundance of trees and lush greenery for amazing photos! At Your Side Planning (formerly, Ah! Le Party) assembled all the centerpieces from flowers delivered by Wholesale flowers.  The loosely arranged pieces fit great with the nature inspired theme!  We used large vases, mason jars and thin vases all along the middle of the tables which were all rectangular.  All the print (table numbers, escort cards and CD envelopes) were all created by Jesika’s close friend.  The cake table was had a tree stump for the cake stand, surrounded by Julian pies and other sweets including vegan sweets!  Eco Caters provided the food which was all organic and also provided veggie burgers which were delicious!  The indoor area felt like a nice, cozy cabin and it was secluded and private for all these happy family and friends.  The wedding was intimate, fun and full of gorgeous natural elements.

Orange County Heritage Museum Wedding

Gloria and Renzo’s wedding at the Heritage Museum in Orange County was so memorable!  This site was adorable and the antique elements added such a great touch to the wedding!  We loved the color scheme of lavender and ivory throughout the attire, floral, lighting and even the cake!  Many of the couple’s family members had very special parts in the ceremony and even throughout the reception.     The couple’s pastor, Noe Gueverra officiated the beautiful ceremony.  The bride’s brother had a very exceptional part in the ceremony with a special song he sang as the bride walked down the aisle!  Vendors included Country Garden Caterers, Torrio Photography and Golden Scroll Soloists.

Henna Art at Pre-Wedding Celebrations!

Henna is becoming more and more popular at Pre-Wedding Celebrations.  We are seeing a new trend and think it’s so much fun!  Mehndi is the art of henna that is a form of skin decoration.  It is practiced in India, Pakistan, Nepal and other countries.  Henna has traditionally been applied during wedding ceremonies and other celebrations for mostly Indian weddings.  A popular trend that is emerging is having a henna artist during bridal showers prior to the wedding day.  I coordinated a wedding in Rosarito Beach (BC Mexico) and the bridal party girls along with the family had a henna artist travel in from LA to provide henna art to everyone who were present at the girls bridal shower!  During this spa day, along with being pampered, the bride provided the artist for henna tattooing.  It was an enjoyable addition to this relaxing day for the bridal party!  Henna originated in ancient Indian sub continent.  Patterns of mehndi are traditionally applied to the bride before the wedding ceremony as well as the groom in certain areas of India.  Henna is a natural and safe process which is applied using a cone or brush.  The area is wrapped so that the body heat is locked in to create a deeper color.  It is normally wrapped for 3-6 hours or overnight.  The henna art lasts 1-3 weeks.  We loved seeing everyone with such beautiful art ready for the wonderful wedding day!
