vintage wedding

Featured on Style Me Pretty California

We are so honored to be featured on Style Me Pretty California! Shanna and Gary were married this past April at the beautiful La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes Estates, California. When we arrived to the destination, Angelica and I were totally blown away by the breathtaking view of both the ocean and the city from the ceremony site. What a nice backdrop to have while you say your vows! Shanna and Gary planned a perfect blend of a modern and vintage wedding. Their wedding was a beautiful reflection of them as individuals and as a couple. Angelica and I had such a great time coordinating their wedding! As much as we enjoy planning and coordinating weddings in Las Vegas, this was a wonderful experience and a nice change of scenery!

Israel and Issac's Paiute Golf Resort Wedding

Israel and Issac were married this past spring at the beautiful Paiute Golf Resort. Their purple, gold, and ivory ceremony and reception popped against Paiute's green trees and blue sky. This couple's wedding was such a special day. Issac had been deployed and serving our country throughout the planning process. Israel was so strong and was very positive knowing she would be reunited with her love soon! Their wedding was definitely a celebration of love and life as they were surrounded by their many family and friends.

Israel and Issac added some special touches throughout their wedding to reflect their personalities. My favorite moment had to be when the groomsmen lifted Issac by his arms and legs and airplaned him into Israel's dress!

Enjoy these photos from Vitamin C Photography! Thank you Suzi!

Katie and Luke: A Summer Wedding In La Jolla California

It would take too many blog posts to describe how special this bride and groom are.  We were honored to have been able to coordinate this beautiful wedding and it was nice to leave Las Vegas for a few days in July!

Katie and Ryan's Modern Vintage Wedding

Katie and Ryan were so much fun to work with! They are my only couple to date to book both their ceremony and reception venue without seeing it before hand. They trusted my judgement and had a beautiful ceremony at Springs Preserve inside the Origen and a delicious dinner reception at Joe's Stone Crab. These Air Force loves were surrounded by their closest friends and family and their bridal party had us laughing all night long.

Bride's Bouquet consisting of Calla Lilies, Orange Dahlia, White Stock, bleached Peacocks Feathers, and Orange Ranunculus with a vintage broach from her family.

Katie and Ryan did a fun photo session in Downtown Las Vegas

Vintage Style Wedding Video Shot on iPhone 4

Check out this vintage wedding video! Wow, this is a must see! BridePOP.com contacted me yesterday to see if I would post this on my blog. Of course, I was intrigued by the idea of a wedding video shot ENTIRELY on an iPhone so I watched and was blown away!  Also, there are no color corrections, no filters used, and no slow motion shots. Monachetti did a wonderful job!

What do you think?

Brides, I wouldn't suggest you allow your cousin Joe to do this for your wedding since this was still shot by a professional videographer!
