What. a. week. Sorry for the lack of posts at the end of last week. Wednesday night I went straight from work to an Angel’s game to see my man get presented an award on the field (!), Thursday was dinner with the family and Friday night was the rehearsal dinner for my friends Saturday wedding! The wedding turned out gorgeous, and was so much fun! Two things I took away from it though: 1. Hire at least a day of coordinator. The groom produces events for a living so they had most of it under control, but for things like getting the ceremony started and doing the grand entrance, having one person in charge would have smoothed thing along a bit. and 2. bring a dress to change into, even if you don’t plan on changing. Lauren’s bustle broke halfway through the ceremony and if it wasn’t for the little dress she had brought to drive away in I think she might have ripped off her own train!!! And with that, a few pictures form the event
First, the guestbook I made for her wedding shower, finally completed with images from the shower and a few from Vegas
Lauren getting dressed. Her photographer wasn’t going to be there while she got dressed so I kind of took over and did the best I could
Driving to the site with her dad in an awesome car.
Both the ceremony and the reception were held at the Ole Hanson Beach Club in San Clemente and it was just gorgeous! The grooms company, TGIS, put everything together, including this lounge that they had set up at the reception.
An awesome ‘tree’ on one of the food station tables. Rather than a sit down dinner they had a kind of glorified cocktail party with food stations serving things like mini pot roast in a martini glass. Delicious! The best food by far though were the chicken enchilada popsicles. Mmmmmmm.
I spent the day with a slight headache (open bar+another bar on the way home= trouble) but we did manage to buy ourselves a little travel book for our honeymoon We thought we were going to go to Vancouver but changed our minds… I will reveal the destination this week because I will need some advice on things!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
