Grace and Chris' Wedding

By: Chrystal Park

When your sister in law gets engaged, you can't help but scream with excitement and shed a few happy tears. When it comes to planning your sister in law's wedding, you can't help but jump with joy! One unique thing about my relationship with my sister in law, is that we've actually known each other our whole life! So when it came to helping her plan her wedding, we couldn't help but think back on childhood memories and just reflect on how much we have grown.  

Grace and Chris' main focus for their wedding day was to make sure it was centered around God. They wanted to honor God and display His love on their wedding day in front of their family and friends. When it came to picking a venue, we wanted to stay local in orange county for all the family members that live nearby. Crossline Community Church provided the perfect chapel with a lot of natural lighting, which was important for Chris, since he is a photographer himself. One of my favorite moments on the day-of was when Grace did a first look with her parents! Most brides do a first look with their soon to be husband, but there is something so special to have that moment with the ones that raised you, provided for you and loved you unconditionally. William Kim did an amazing job capturing that moment!

Since the reception was also at the church, we wanted the fellowship hall to feel more like a reception venue. We wanted to make the fellowship hall feel more intimate so we added colored uplighting and pipe and drape, provided by Carcano DJ. We completed the reception look by renting silver chiavari chairs from Chiavari Chairs 4 Rent. The guests got to enjoy appetizers and a multiple course dinner catered by Four Seasons Catering. The MC did an awesome job in entertaining the guests with multiple games and everyone had a great time on the dance floor. It was such a blessing to be able to help my sister in law plan her wedding and have her enjoy her day with her husband and loved ones!
