Rania & Dan at The Portofino Hotel Redondo Beach

Look at these two gorgeous people! Not only beautiful on the outside, but the most amazing personalities to match.  I was lucky to have Rania, Dan, their families & friends as clients and posting this reminds me that I must plan a coffee date with Rania soon to catch up!

The details were full of glam and bling – I cannot get enough of that – elegant, fancy and timeless, it all worked together so nicely in such a fabulous venue – One of our favs – The Portofino Hotel.  Thanks to a Picture Life for these pretty pics!  Congratulations Rania & Dan – it was an honor to help you with your big day details!

Colleen & Donny – Nixon Library

Such a fun and creative day for Colleen & Donny’s West Coast Reception at the Nixon Library!  Colleen called me and wanted help planning her 2nd reception for her and Donny’s West Coast family and friends.  They live on the East Coast and had a beautiful wedding and reception in New York and wanted to celebrate here with more of their loved ones.

This awesome pair had a theme in mind – Campaign/Running Mates/Red, White & Blue – and wanted to bring it all together on their special day by using things such as signs, campaign buttons and stickers, bold and big balloons in red/white/blue and much more.  Colleen did an amazing job putting together all the pieces and making the venue look elegant, stylish and fun!

Thanks to Colleen & Donny for being such a great couple to work with and celebrate with – congrats to you both!!

Daniel & Vanessa – Dana Point

Could we have asked for a bluer sky or more fabulous weather in Dana Point in July?? What a perfect day for Daniel & Vanessa’s, super intimate and beautiful wedding ceremony!  The couple, along with about 50 of their closest friends and family members enjoyed the ocean-view ceremony and reception.

I loved, loved, loved the couple’s choice of footwear (see pic below!), attire, minimalist decor and their planning ease during the months and weeks leading up to the big day.  The focus was absolutely on the celebration of their marriage among loved ones.  Congratulations Daniel & Vanessa!  I am so happy to have helped you both and I wish you the best!

Holly & Josh – Wedding

2013 started off the right way! The CLEC team was honored to help coordinate the wedding of Holly and Josh in April of this year at the Doubletree Anaheim. Tia, Holly’s sister, was the first to contact me about the wedding day details and I met with her and their mom and I could see how excited they were for their sister/daughter and how much time they had put into choosing just the right details for her and Josh’s day.

Just check out the shoe bling and the cake detail and the florals!  Oh the beauty of it all…Captured by Lindsey Cahill, who was so awesome to work with!

Alison & Brent – Serra Plaza, San Juan Capistrano

There are some weddings that we, as a team at CLEC, just do not want to stop working on!  Of course, we are thrilled to pieces when the day comes and we see all of the beautiful details come together, but we love our couples so much that it is sad to not see or hear from them like we used to!

Alison and Brent hired us over a year before their wedding day at Serra Plaza so we got to be there every step of the planning & designing way for these two.  This couple is real and awesome and so great together.  Not only are they beautiful on the outside, but they were a dream to work with – open to ideas, great taste and wanted the focus on their marriage, with some fab details here and there :)

I am truly honored to have helped Alison and Brent with their wedding day gorgeousness! Huge thanks to Smetona Photo for the fabulous photos and the fun we had on the wedding day! This was our first time working at Serra Plaza and I cannot wait for the next! The space is great – tons of character, flowing spaces, lots of items on-site to use for decor and their team is so nice.

Congratulations Alison & Brent!  Lana and I miss you already!  xoxoxo

Engagement Photos – Rania & Dan

Meet Rania & Dan , one of our fabulous and gorgeous August Couples.  I LOVE when a bride and/or groom calls me to chat about their wedding and we just click, over the phone, no meeting necessary!  Rania called me last year and in the middle of a busy and loud shopping center, and we had a great conversation.  She was referred to us by one of our favorite venues Portofino Hotel

We still haven’t met in person, but I got to see Rania and Dan when she sent me these beautiful photos by Ashley at A Picture Life Photography

So excited to see their big day come together this summer!
