Kaitlyn and Long's Wedding

By: Tiffany King

This past May we had the privilege of helping to make Kailtyn and Long’s wedding day a dream come true! Their story is the epitome of perfect timing. These two sweethearts knew of each other back in high school through mutual friends, but their paths never crossed. It wasn’t until years later when they decided to go on a trip to the east coast with said mutual friends, did they finally meet and hit it off.

Fast forward to the planning of their wedding day, and these two definitely had a vision...a grand, black and white affair. It’s always fun working with a couple that knows exactly what they want for their day and being able to execute it all. Their ceremony was hosted in the middle of the Anaheim Convention Center Grand Plaza, a first for the venue itself. Their cocktail hour and reception was at the ballroom of Marriott Anaheim where drinks and food from Top Catering were served.

Kaitlyn and Long’s love for their family and friends was clearly evident throughout the day. From the speeches they made to each other’s siblings and families, to the little details (photobooth, donut wall, and rolled ice cream) of providing fun activities for their guests. They went all out to make this one joyous celebration of their love!

Nina and Daniel's Wedding

Last Fall, our team had the honor of assisting Nina and Daniel with their wedding. These two are so incredibly sweet and have the biggest hearts. Both of them have a very contagious smile and both love the Lord. If you've been following our blogs, you know one of our favorite moments is honoring of the parents. This particular wedding was very emotional when it was time for Nina to honor her parents. Nina's relationship with her dad is probably one of the closest we've ever seen. Julien captured the priceless moments when he got to walk her down the aisle, give his daughter away, and take part in dancing with his newly wedded little girl. 

Nina and Daniel got married at Nina's previous home church, Living Hope Community Church. City Flowers did a beautiful job creating a breathtaking arch, which was later then repurposed for their sweetheart table. One of our favorite Korean catering companies, Four Seasons, helped keep guests full with their multiple dishes served during cocktail hour and dinner.  Nina wanted to make sure the guests were fully fed so they ordered multiple desserts from one of our favorites, Porto's! Check out some of our favorite moments from #hohsbandandwifeyi. And yes, years later, the wedding party did the Harlem Shake.

Yiqian and Jerome's Engagement Session

One of our very own, Yiqian, is getting married this summer and all of us here at #teamblisssoiree are so excited and cannot wait for her big day! Yiqian and Jerome met at UCI while studying for their undergraduate degrees and serving on a campus ministry together. But it wasn't love at first site since their relationship started out as friends, then friends zone and not until years later, a rekindled friendship that turned into a their own unique love story. After dating for almost three years, Jerome finally popped the question and they are finally taking the next step and starting a new chapter in their lives together, just as God planned all along. One of the benefits of working in the wedding industry is that you get to work with all these amazing vendors. Yiqian fell in love with The Times We Have while working at Nicole and Brandon's wedding last Spring and had to book them for her own wedding! Here are some of our favorites of our girl and her fiance, Jerome.
