Leslie and Derrick's Wedding

By: Tiffany King

Leslie and Derrick got married in July of 2018 at the beautiful Highland Springs Ranch. To say the weather wasn’t on their side on their special day, would be a huge understatement. They had to overcome quite a number of curveballs that mother nature decided to throw at them; first with Southern California’s heat wave, then with pouring rain, and finally a wildfire nearby. Despite all of this, Leslie and Derrick were never seen without a smile on their face.


They said their “I do’s” in between the rain showers outside and partied their way into the reception in the Grand Hall. The love they had for their family and friends and their fun personalities were evident in every detail. They wrote personalized escort cards and gave out lavender scented soaps for each of their guests and even had fun goody bags for all the little ones. Each of their tables were named after a national park they had journeyed together and their dessert table hosted an assortment of pies with a special quote from Leslie’s favorite show “The Office”. Scroll through a few of the best moments from their special day captured by Meiwen Wang Photography.

Anna and James' Wedding

By: Chrystal Park

When boy meets girl and falls in love, he will do anything and everything to win her over. James was very persistent in pursuing Anna and he never gave up and eventually won her heart. So ladies, give a guy a chance! Anna and James have been dating long distance their whole relationship, which allowed them to only see each other once a month. When they did get to spend these rare weekends together, they enjoyed the little things like sharing a meal together and throwing private dance parties. But ever since they were finally living on the same coast, they were able to see each other more regularly. These two couldn’t wait to get married and live in the same city!

Anna and James both live and work on the east coast but their families are on the west coast, so they decided to get married in SoCal. They kicked off our summer season and exchanged their I do’s at The Colony House. Anna looked absolutely stunning in her gown and James looked so dapper in his Navy uniform. One of our favorite details was the guest book. They didn’t have a traditional book for guests to sign. Instead, they had each guest sign a jenga piece! How unique and creative is that? Jina from De Flora did an amazing job decorating the ceremony space with luscious florals and candles. 24 Carrots provided the food and beverage for the whole evening and the couple had so much fun celebrating their union with their loved ones. We felt so lucky to be a part of their special day and are so excited that they finally get to make memories as husband and wife in the same city! Below are just a few of our favorite moments that were beautifully captured by the talented, Rachel Jane. Enjoy!

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!
