Good morning from Huntington Beach everyone! It’s been such a fast year working with so many great couples, speaking on the [ b ] School Study Hall, my online “TV” program; “How To Make The Most Out Of Your Wedding Day“ helping brides and grooms save time, money & their sanity — AND even being filmed again on WeTV for David Tutera’s; “My Fair Wedding.“ What’s crazy is that is only the tip of the ice berg too!
So I thought kicking my Friday off properly would be with some absolutely delicious and romantic wedding photography. I bet you thought I was going to say with coffee. Hee hee hee!
One of the awesome couples that I’ve had the honour of working with is Irene & Garrett. Their San Clemente Wedding was held at Cypress Shores park with a little overcast, but absolutely amazing weather for a very colourful wedding day.
Bur first Irene & Garrett’s wedding day started at Garrett’s family’s home where Garrett had to be put through the paces with a traditional quizzing of the groom while Evelyn Lui and her team of hair stylists and makeup artists put on the final touches for Irene and her ladies. Irene was absolutely stunning in a La Fleur Wedding Dress by Anne Barge, Swarovski earrings, and Miss Bisou shoes and a wedding ring that was Garrett’s mother’s made by Laguna Beach artist; Everett MacDonald. Her ladies were in hand made dresses from Taiwan and Garrett and his men looked sharp as a tack in Tuxedos provided by Friar Tux.
Once Garrett passed all the tests & located Irene, they shared in a very symbolic and traditional tea ceremony with Irene’s parents. I truly love it when there is a blending of families and incorporating of traditions as well. That just takes the event to HNL.
After the traditional events were done we headed to Cypress Shores in an antique Dusenburg that George Hardy drove for their wedding ceremony. I have to say that with the veritable cornucopia of music keeping the afternoon going by DJ Doug and his partner-in-crime with All The Best Tunes, BeachFire Bar & Grill taking care of the absolutely delicious meal and beverages, Black Forest Bakery in Lake Forest providing two yummy wedding cakes and Bob with A Timeless Memory shooting video with me throughout the day, and Krista Jon Couture with Downtown Flowers providing the beautiful floral arrangements – Irene & Garrett’s wedding day was perfect.
I would also like to give a huge shout out to Ms. Jill Watson from The Pampered Bride and her assistant Marsha Dunham from Queen For A Day Weddings for making sure that each & every detail was met and Irene & Garrett’s wedding guests & family had every need exceeded.
