I initially wasn’t going to blog this, but I think the pictures are so fun that I really can’t resist.  On May 22nd, Matt and I will be joining a slew of other generous vendors and radio personality Gary Bryan to help marry the military!  Twenty-five couples with either a bride or a groom (or both) currently serving in the military have been selected via a contest hosted by K-Earth 101, and will be married and thrown a reception at the gorgeous Huntington Beach Hyatt Resort & Spa later this month.  It will be a charity wedding event en masse, and I can’t wait to see how Wenda from More Than Just Weddings pulls it off!

On Saturday Wenda had me on deck at the Hyatt to photograph some of the contest’s lucky winners as they selected dresses donated from Diva Bridal Legacy.  You could say that there definitely was just a little sparkle of excitement in the air…

A team from Planet Zaya was on hand to interview some of the girls as well as artist Bethany Thomas, who is donating time and talent to create some classic masterpieces for each couple.
