Ceremony Magazine - Maritime Wedding

Last summer we shared in the joy of Julie and Sean's wedding at The Balboa Yacht Club. Of course I love every one of my amazing clients, but Julie was even more special. We are "industry" friends. When Julie asked me to be her coordinator I was deeply humbled. She knows every planner in Orange County, and she chose me. Julie and Sean focused on a Maritime Theme because of Sean's love of boats. It was an homage to his father, and very meaningful. Ceremony Magazine acknowledged that this was a WEDDING OF DISTINCTION, and published it their new Orange County 2013 issue.

As if Julie and Sean aren't thrilled enough to have their wedding featured, one of the images of their day is also soon to be featured in Ceremony's OC April cover. We just happened to snag a sneek peek of it from the fabulous Joel Maus of Studio EMP. He is a master at capturing stunning images, and this one is no exception. Isn't it lovely? CONGRATULATIONS on this achievement Joel.
Drool over all the NAUTICAL details. The ceremony was so meaningful, and the reception was a great party. So many fun moments to remember. The dance floor was packed all night. The photo booth was a wild party itself. Julie and Sean treated their guests to a late night taco bar. To top off the night, their guests gathered in a tunnel that led to the couple's awaiting limo, and sent them off with sparklers.What a wedding indeed.

Of course all these elements don't happen on their own. It takes an army of creative professionals who come together and work as a team. And what a dream team this was. It was so fun to work with the best in the business, who happen to be my friends as well. How can you call this work? When looking for vendors, please consider these outstanding professionals:
