Jaymee & Mike at Dove Canyon Country Club

One thing Jaymee and Mike pull off easily is looking effortlessly glam, with a lengthy veil, lace-sleeved dress, and classic Rolls Royce. Glam is actually a pretty good way to describe the whole wedding, in fact!Venue (ceremony): St. Kilian Catholic ChurchVenue (reception): Dove Canyon Golf ClubWedding Planning: Ciao Bella Wedding Planning & EventsFloral Design: Cargo CreativeVideography: Sparkle FilmsClassic Car: Classy Chassis RentalsLighting & Drapery: Illuminated EventsLive Music: West Coast Music Beverly HillsHair & Makeup: OC Hair & Makeup

Fire Garden Wedding Photos, Adara and Tom

Adara and Tom wanted to model their wedding after the relaxed good-times feeling they typically enjoy at music festivals, so it was no surprise they picked an offbeat ranch-style estate as their venue, ordered wild-looking arrangements from their florist, used a food truck for their dinner, and a live band for their guests' entertainment. Attendees were also treated to an open bar, a massive and delicious wedding cake designed by a friend (complete with sweet marzipan mushrooms), and of course our Open-Air Photobooth with nerdy props nodding to Tom's love for Doctor Who and comic books. Last October it was pretty hot almost all month, so I was concerned it might be an uncomfortable day so far from the beach air---however the weather turned out amazing! Mild temperature, beautiful sunlight filtering through the trees for their ceremony and photo sessions, and a cool breeze at night to level off guests as they got down on the dance floor! Looks like Adara and Tom ordered up the most fabulous wedding day possible!Venue: The Fire Garden, Bonsall, CACoordination: Neon Carrot EventsFloral Design: Third BloomCaterer: Miho GastroTruckCake: Kim CraneLive Music: Leroy & the Bad Bad BrownsBride's dress: Amy MichelsonBride's jewelry "sandals": Jewelry by Sedra

Old Ranch Country Club Wedding Photos - Christine and Matt

When I saw these photos by our associates Carolyn and Nathan of Christine and Matt's wedding, all I could say was "wow." Just...WOW! Christine  and Matt look as gorgeous as models and so relaxed...I can tell they had boatloads of fun that day because of how many photos there are of them laughing and goofing off together. Combined with a pair of adorable kids in the wedding party, emotionally charged toasts, eye-popping ceremony florals and beautiful weather, I daresay this looks like the perfect wedding day...I totally understand why Christine wrote to me: "Looking at the photos made me cry and laugh all over again!"Congrats, Christine & Matt!
