Donna and Tim are a very special couple and the The Charming Little Event Company was lucky enough to be a part of their intimate event. They had a beautiful ceremony at Mariners Church in Irvine. This is a gorgeous location that lends itself to breathtaking photos. For the reception guests headed over to Fig and Olive in Newport Beach. A hip and top-rated restaurant, which was the perfect place for such a reception. Immediately when you enter you are taken into a Mediterranean oasis with real olive trees inside, a courtyard, lush greenery and tranquil spaces.
The floral accents by Greenleaf Designs were stunning with their array of color. From orange, and lavender to yellow, white and green – they were definitely a focal point that commanded your attention. Guests picked up their escort cards from a garden trellis, adorned with fresh herbs and pretty greenery. One of our favorites was the kid’s table complete with markers, crafts and all the items a kid would need to be entertained. We love when we see a twist on wedding favors and Donna and Tim surprised guests when each one was given a special card letting them know that a donation had been made in their honor to Life Impact International on their behalf, along with hand made key chains in a variety of designs. It’s truly touching to see such selflessness being modeled on such a special day.
Donna and Tim, thank you for letting The Charming Little Event Company walk with you on your journey today. We wish you many blessings as you begin your new life together.

We love doing weddings at the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach. The warm summer’s night & July sunset was simply stunning and the perfect setting for Kelly and Alvand’s wedding ceremony. Guests were greeted by a beautiful mirror that listed the entire bridal party in custom handwriting that was used throughout the reception.
When you think of a beach wedding Kelly and Alvand’s fall right into line with it’s nautical theme and cool colors. The magenta pop of color gave a modern twist to the beach theme. From lantern centerpieces to sand and sea shell candle holders the bride and groom felt as if they were on their own private beach. There was no corner left unturned during the reception. The details and accents complimented the theme and guests as they went for the candy bar or out on the patio for a sunset view over the marina.
Congratulations to Kelly and Alvand. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and we thank you for letting us share in your special day.
We were so excited to find out Kelly and Alvand’s wedding was featured on one of our favorite blogs, Knotsvilla (http://www.knotsvilla.com/california-beach-wedding-erica-mendenhall-photography/). Please view blog post for more details of this fabulous wedding.

What a beautiful October wedding we were privileged to be a part of today. AJ and Kelly had a beautiful reception at the Harborside Restaurant in Newport Beach or better known as historic Downtown Balboa Island. The Grand Ballroom sits atop the restaurant overlooking stunning views of the bay. The Nautical throwback theme of this wedding made you feel as if you were stepping back in time. The blue and white theme with the stunning pop of yellow color from the sunflowers gave a refreshing feeling to the nautical them and all in attendance. I love that the cake table gave honor to all the family members present and passed on. What a wonderful way to pay respect to those no longer with us. From the Balboa Bar table to the rustic downtown photos and sea lion guests in attendance this was a wedding we will never forget. Congratulations to AJ and Kelly. We were honored to help with your special day. May you ride the waves of happiness into eternity.

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!

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!
