Kerry was determined to do her wedding right! She and Mark selected Mark’s home church Bethany Lutheran in Long Beach as well as the gorgeously renovated Old Ranch Country Club for their respective ceremony and reception venues, and researched and hired talented vendors such as Flower Allie florist, HD In Vision videography, Beauty and the Beach hair and makeup services for the gals, Station Identification DJ service, OC Limo transportation, Wedding Paper Divas for the stationary details, and Cinderella Cakes bakery for the cakes. There were so many creative details with splashes of rich purple color I thought my shutter finger was going to fall off photographing it all!
The fellas were pretty proud of their argyles

WOW! That wispy Enzoani dress with the veil!
When I saw these enormous clouds of baby's-breath floral arrangements decorating the ceremony site, my mouth fell wide open!

Whenever I look at this photo I can't help but wonder what is going through Kerry's mind at that moment.

Cute succulent touches on the cocktail tables
Mark's dad brought his badical Oldsmobile for the "getaway"!
The breeze sure has perfect timing.
Assorted delectables from Cinderella Cakes in lieu of traditional wedding cake.
I saw this LOST-inspired "Dharma" cake for Mark and Kerry and squee'ed. The numbers pertain to when they met and when they married.
Kerry and her dad danced to "Daughter" by Loudon Wainwright III, which was a nice change from the more common father/daughter dance songs I've heard
Complimentary flip-flops for guests to use while dancing
