{real wedding} Lyssa Rae + Chase Part 3

I couldn't help but dedicate another post to the fabulous wedding of Lyssa Rae + Chase. Their Big Day at Bella Collina in San Clemente couldn't have been more picture perfect.

With a bride this gorgeous, you know the photos are going to be amazing.

Making sure I have all the bases covered...
Getting the groom's boutiniere just right...

Seriously...if she wasn't such a sweetheart, I might be a little jealous of Lyssa Rae
I love their favors/placecards...little seed packets!
I'm telling ya, beauty runs in the family...sister/MOH of the bride
Love their ring pillow...and the ring bearer!
Watching the ceremony
Gorgeous day for a wedding!

Don't get me started on the dessert station from Jay's Catering...not only was everything adorable, it was delicious!

Another successful wedding!

Venue Spotlight: Dove Canyon Country Club

I had the honor of coordinating Rochelle + Jeff's reception at the Dove Canyon Country Club on November 13th (which, coincidentally, was my husband's & my 5th anniversary). Everyone at Dove CCC was wonderful to work with. They were extremely professional and helpful. The grounds are really beautiful; you can have an outdoor ceremony followed by hors d'ouevres and reception inside their gorgeous ballroom with spectacular views of the golf course. I'll post pictures of the Veturis-Coles wedding soon!

A Marriage Made in Camelot

For some reason I have always LOVED the Kennedy's. There is something magical about this family. Yes, they have had their scandals and what's commonly referred to as the Kennedy Curse, but despite all that (or maybe because of it) their memory lives on. Jackie Kennedy Onassis was a fashion icon every day, but especially on her wedding day. I remember seeing her wedding dress on display in a Boston museum when I was 12, and buying a postcard of the photo below for my bedroom wall.

Everything about this dress & veil is perfection.

Happy Birthday Joyce!

Over the summer I had the privilege of coordinating Miss Joyce's 80th Birthday Party! It was so great seeing her with family & friends, celebrating her life. I pray that when I'm 80 my friends & family will have the same wonderful things to say about me that Joyce's said about her.

The Birthday Girl!
Joyce's daughter had this beautiful garden backyard, a perfect spot for a celebration.

A table full of memories...a hit with guests.
One of my favorite pictures of Joyce...adorable!
We discovered some other things that got their start in 1930...Snickers was one of them!
