Wedding Spotlight: Brenda and Thomas

Brenda and Thomas’ blush, gold, navy blue wedding had me at hello.  Their wedding incorporated two of my loves – a rustic, romantic vibe with chalkboard and burlap accents. Let’s proceed to the party + see their rustic chic wedding photographed beautifully by Angelee Arceo.

From the bride: Thomas and I met a little over 3 years ago through mutual friends whom I had reconnected with after a couple years. We realized we had crossed paths before but never had officially met until then. We got engaged the morning of October 12, 2015, while on a family vacation in Hawaii. We had arrived the day before and had been running errands all day long. That night his mother, aunt and I were on the deck relaxing listening to the waves and admiring the starry sky when we saw shooting stars. I told the ladies make a wish (apparently he heard me). The next morning, I woke up to him say, “What did you wish for?” and I kept telling him, “I can’t tell you, if I do it will not come true.”  He kept insisting I tell him, and I continued to repeat my reasoning for not saying. Then he magically pulled a box from I don’t know where and asked, “Is this what you wished for? And opening it. Then he asked if I would marry him, and of course I said Yes, with tears flowing down my face. That magical moment brought us to an even more magical wedding.

With the assistance of some incredible vendors, like Simple Country Weddings, Above and Beyond Cakes and Heidi’s Floral Design, the bride planned and designed the whole day.

img_9061-zf-7203-85538-1-014From the bride: Start planning as soon as you can. Find your venue and set the date, you really can’t do anything until this is set. Keep lists, spreadsheets on excel were my best friends. I had a crazy spreadsheet that I would have been lost without. It contained all the following to keep track of everything: guest name (individually, helped me know our headcount), mailing address, if the invite was mailed, hand delivered, response card received, not received, food choice (if you are having platted), I had a column for each of our choices, chicken, steak, vegan, gift column makes writing thank you cards so much easier, and a column saying I mailed my thank you cards out. It truly was my best friend.  Also if you are sending response cards assign each card a specific number that matches your spreadsheet that way if someone sends it back without names, or does not, you can reference your list and know who it is, or who is missing.

From the bride: We absolutely loved our sweetheart table. It looked even better than I had imagined. Especially with the lovely French doors and chandelier we had rented from Simple County Weddings, linen, and the lovely custom made Mr. & Mrs. sign my father in law had designed for us.img_8715-zf-7203-85538-1-051

At one point around 11:30 p.m. when I had changed dresses everyone was inside under the tent dancing and no one was in the lovely lounge area outside under the lights. We walked out there and just slow danced, smiling and enjoying a moment where everything was quiet around us and just enjoyed the fact that we had survived all the months of planning and were finally Mr. & Mrs. Quezada.

From the bride: We really wanted to find a magical open place and The Pavilion at Haggin Oaks was that for us. The moment we walked into that tent and looked out towards the golf course we were sold. We had been on the search for a venue that had all the requirements we wanted. It provided a lovely area for a ceremony, if it was hot the tent provided shade, the grounds were lovely, the white drapery and chandeliers gave that romantic vibe we wanted. As well you can’t beat a place that provides everything, (tables, chairs, linens, napkins, all the plates, glasses, etc.) Truly made the planning process so much easier, and the best part, only one wedding per day so you can be there early setting up and start as late as you want. I arrived at 10am and our wedding didn’t start until 6:30 p.m. and ended at 12:30 a.m. We loved that you provided golf carts to transport our guests, especially since we had elderly people at our wedding.

Congratulations + Best Wishes to Brenda and Thomas!

Wedding Spotlight: Eliza and Keean

You know when you see a photo and it just stops you in your tracks? Gives you goosebumps? Literally takes your breath away? That is EXACTLY how I felt when I opened up the gallery for today’s wedding spotlight. The super talented Lyndsay Undseth was kind of enough to share Eliza and Keean’s beautiful wedding photographs with us.

From the bride: We wanted to have a romantic, classic and fun wedding. A day that would represent both of our styles and our unique relationship while still being timeless. We were able to achieve that thanks to our wonderful vendors. Our colors of blush pink and gold went perfectly with the natural beauty of the venue.

The cutest ring security ever!
Haggin Oaks Wedding_0020From the Groom: We met early in high school and started dating shortly after meeting each other in class. Although we chose to attend different colleges, we worked through the challenges of being apart and realized that our life was meant to be together. During our junior year of college, Eliza was supposed to be going on a lunch date with one of her eventual bridesmaids. Instead, I had her bridesmaid send her on a scavenger hunt across different memories in our relationship. The last clue ended with her finding me in a park, where I played “Can’t Help Falling in Love” on the ukulele, which ended up being our first dance song, before proposing.Haggin Oaks Wedding_0021

From the groom: I think we both had pretty high expectations for our vision of our wedding day, but wanted to stay within our budget. The Pavilion at Haggin Oaks gave us the flexibility to make our entire vision a reality, not just having one or two parts of it like at other venues. Not only that, but the venue itself has natural beauty. Since we wanted a summer, evening wedding, we felt the need to be outside under the lights. The wonderful turfed area gave us that feel and it was already part of the venue. It was a blank canvas that we could mold into the perfect site for our wedding day. It was everything we could have asked for.

From the bride: We spent a lot of time searching for a venue; we both were picky and needed to find something that was perfect. When we came across The Pavilion at Haggin Oaks I loved it before we even had a chance to visit it. At the time Keean and I were still in a long distance relationship, so I sent him to visit the site and hoped he liked it in person just as much as I did from photos.  He did! This venue had natural beauty, a variety of options so you can personalize your day and a great staff that we were able to work with.Haggin Oaks Wedding_0051

From the Bride: We incorporated a handful of traditions into out wedding. Our something old was a small ring my dad gave me when he and my mom got married. I was only seven years old so now the ring barely fits on my pinky, I tied it onto my bouquet so I had it with me the whole day. Something New: A beautiful pearl necklace my grandmother gave me specifically for the special day. Something borrowed and blue: A blue aquamarine ring my grandmother has had for many years, she let me use it as my something borrowed and something blue for the day.

1001 Cranes: A tradition passed down in Hawaiian cultures that acts as a test for the new couple to work through the trial of creating 1001 cranes for peace and harmony in their relationship, which became part of our head table backdrop.Haggin Oaks Wedding_0059
Haggin Oaks Wedding_0060From the groom: Our head table may have been the best detail of the day. We had a vision for what it would look like and it came out even better than we had anticipated with the rentals we got from Simple Country Weddings and our 1001 cranes.Haggin Oaks Wedding_0061

Haggin Oaks Wedding_0062

Haggin Oaks Wedding_0063From the groom: Our wedding day had so many amazing memories that I will remember forever. The moment that brings out the strongest emotions would be at the start of our reception. I think entering the reception as the new “Mr. and Mrs.” finally let the emotions of everything my wife and I have worked at in our relationship come to fruition. The excitement of the moment overwhelmed me in our entrance proving that everything was real. It was truly a wonderful feeling.Haggin Oaks Wedding_0064

Haggin Oaks Wedding_0065

Haggin Oaks Wedding_0073

Haggin Oaks Wedding_0068From the bride: I have so many favorite memories from that day, but one of them would have to be our first dance. During the dance it was like no one else was there with us and for those few minutes Keean and I were able to soak in every bit of love we had for each other with no distractions. It was a perfect way for us to appreciate all the time we put into planning that day and reflect on our journey of being together.Haggin Oaks Wedding_0069

Would you have any advice for those that are planning a wedding?

From the groom: First off, when planning a wedding you should never lose sight of the excitement and joy that you will be preparing for. Even though it gets stressful, you should never lose sight that you are planning a wonderful day that will be a memory for the rest of your life. It is a happy day, never a stressful one.

From the bride: Secondly, when your day comes, remember that no matter what happens don’t let it get to you. You have worked so hard to make that day perfect; don’t spend it being stressed or angry. The most important part of that day is being happy, finding joy no matter what happens and celebrating you and your partner.

 

Congratulations and Best Wishes, Eliza and Keean!

Maryka and Andrew sought to have a simple, romantic and elegant wedding, surrounded by those they love most. I think you will agree that they succeeded on all counts. So much simplistic goodness all photographed by Kaboo Vang:

From the Bride: Don’t stress the details. Remember that at the end of the day its about getting married to the person you love surrounded by people who support you. Make the day about the two of you and let the little details fall into place.

abcd8722-copyFrom the Bride: I incorporated the tradition of something old, something borrowed and something blue. My mom bought a new diamond bracelet and gave it to me while getting ready expressing that ‘diamonds are old’ My shoes were new and I added pearls and rhinestones to the strap. I borrowed the headband I wore from my best friend’s wedding. And I wore blue panties as my something blue! :)

Happy day-before-Thanksgiving, friends! How dreamy is this wedding  photographed by Yuliya M Photography? A country style wedding at our Lakeside at Bartley Cavanaugh location. This wedding is filled with such sweet touches and Jennifer’s bouquet! It’s seriously ah-mazing. I hope that you fall in love with this perfect fall wedding.


I love how Jennifer used baby’s breath for the groomsmen boutonnieres and bridesmaids bouquets.

Wedding Spotlight: Liz and Dave

Today I’m sharing a wedding that’s so gorgeous and glamorous in all it’s rustic glory, I don’t even want to talk about it, I just want you to scroll down and see for yourself! Liz and Dave’s wedding day, filled with chic rustic touches including a birch gazebo and wood palette wall, was captured by Kaboo Vang of Kaboo Vang Photography.

img_0321-copy

The decor was kept chic and rustic, with floral centerpieces, chalkboard signage, family style dining and a brilliant color palette of teal and fuchsia.

dsc05920-copy

From the Bride: We intentionally wanted this to be a party and not have a lot of formality. If I had to pick one favorite memory from our day,  it would probably be the photos before the wedding. Dave and I did an hour of photos and it was just us.

With her stunning  lace gown, Liz looked every inch a Hollywood star as she surprised Dave during their first look (just wait until you see Dave’s face!)

From the Bride: Dave and I met at an event we were both working. I was the coordinator and he was the tour manager for the performer at the event. He took a picture of me and “offered” to tag me on Facebook…30 min after he left the event he sent me a private message. That was it. We’ve been together ever since.

First think you need to know about me is that I’m a control freak. We had started talking about engagement and looking at rings in January (5 months after we met). We actually found the ring on the first day, but kept looking. Of course the biggest obstacle was that the ring we found was at Costco (amazing selection) and he does not have a Costco card. So I had to be there when he bought the ring. So he has the ring in his pocket and I’m over here like “Can I have it now?” We went to dinner and as he’s proposing Faithfully by Journey then Marry Me by Train comes on…. It was non traditional and perfect but us.

Any Advice to those who are planning? Identify 3 really important moments that you want to have at your reception. We have access to so many great ideas and narrowing down what you would like to have and how to make it cohesive can be overwhelming. Pick 3 things that you really want to make a statement. For us it was the wood wall, our dance floor lighting and table décor. Because the colors that we picked were so bold (fuchsia and teal) we had to use them thoughtfully.

I know I say this at least once a week, but I just love this wedding. I really do.

Sometimes the most simple weddings, are the most special. And Jin Sun and Ben’s sweet minty blue wedding, was pretty special.

This wonderful pair who met while teaching English in Korea created an intimate celebration that was a sweet, low key affair with adorable DIY moments sprinkled throughout.

It was captured by the talented Doug Miranda Photography – and I’m so excited for you guys to see their dreamy portraits!

Crystal and Lee’s wedding reception! I imagine it’s like jumping into a big frothy pile of cotton candy.  (Wait until you see the cake!)

From the Bride: Our ceremony was a traditional Catholic Wedding held at The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. Our reception was a tented garden reception with a soft-romantic style incorporating sprinkles of a travel theme to the tables and seating chart (places we’ve visited together), as well as lawn games, a hosted bar, a dessert buffet and a cigar bar to entertain our guests. Lee and I met while dancing for a Polynesian dance group – we were partnered up and dated for 10 years before getting engaged. We were cruising around the Caribbean when we got engaged – specifically in Barbados while doing a catamaran tour to snorkel with the sea turtles.Crystal+Lee_0668

Favorite Memory from Wedding Day: Lee (Ceremony) – watching the bride walk down the aisle, (Reception) – the first dance. Crystal (Ceremony) – seeing her father and fiance’s reactions as she walked down the aisle. Crystal (Reception) – seeing all of our family and friends hugging and smiling and laughing together all in one place

Any Advice to those who are Planning? Crystal –  Never lose sight of why you are getting married in the first place. Lee – Listen to your fiancé.

From Crystal:  I always envisioned having a tented garden wedding, which is why we chose your venue. I loved the market lights, the gazebo and the tent. The blank canvas was elegant in itself and left so much room to add our own special touches. We actually fell in love with the venue on our first visit and already knew it was “the one”! The pricing was more than reasonable and the quality of food and assistance from Rebecca and her staff were amazing as well.

We wish you many years of love and happiness in your marriage. Congratulations and best wishes, Crystal and Lee!

Briana and Steven’s wedding is a stunning celebration, chock full of gorgeous, unique DIY details.

Briana and Steven knew just how to craft a day that was fun and  beautiful but still had such a personal spin. It made for a day that was totally memorable and one-of-a-kind.

The talented Dee and Kris from Dee and Kris Photography beautifully captured our day. They were be far THE BEST thing to happen to our wedding. They did our engagement photos and killed it on our wedding photos. Not only are they amazing dedicated photographers, but they plan out every second of your wedding, so that you don’t have to stress about a thing. They are down to earth and make you feel comfortable in front of the camera.

Favorite Memory from Wedding Day

It is hard to pick just one moment for our wedding. I know everyone says their wedding is the best day of their life, but ours truly was. If I had to pick jut one, it would be walking down the aisle. The scenery was so beautiful, the decor was amazing and seeing my future husband at the end of the aisle was absolutely amazing.

Our Favorite DIY Element

I love the fact that we made everything because we kept everything and still use all of the decorations. Our corn hole set gets used for every BBQ and family event that we have.

Our Advice to those Planning Now:

Use the space wisely. This venue has so much space to work with and areas to use and decorate. The venue is so accommodating and really allows you to have full creative control, unlike a lot of other place. At the Pavilion at Haggin Oaks your wedding can be as unique as you want.

(and no, we didn’t pay her to say that!)

Charming, casual, and full of whimsy, Briana and Steven’s wedding was what it’s all about…family, a good time, and two people who are madly in love. Best Wishes and Congratulations to Briana and Steven!
