It’s LeeAnn and Raymund’s Wedding Day!!!

1 Oct

LeeAnn and Raymund hold a very special place in our hearts!  We started working with this couple several months ago to plan their 300 guest wedding and fell in love with them and their beautiful daughter! Not only is this couple the sweetest ever, they love each other so much!  Having been together for 10 years, this day is one they have been dreaming of for years.  Today, we will get 55 people down the aisle (13 bridesmaids, 13 groomsmen, 8 flower girls, the bride, groom, officiant and 18 sponsors and parents) and help them throw one heck of a party!

Many, many congratulations LeeAnn and Raymund!!!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!

A special thank you to Helene Cornell for sharing their beautiful engagement photos.

Happy Anniversary Cierra and David!

One year ago today we had the opportunity to work with a very fun young couple Cierra and David on their wedding.  We could tell from the start that this couple loved each other so very much and are overjoyed to wish Cierra and David a very HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!! We hope you enjoy this special day and remember the fun, excitement and good times shared with your family and friends.  Here’s to many more years of wedded bliss.

Cool Favor: Flip Books

19 Sep

While photo booths are popular for weddings, recently we worked with Heather and Ken (our 9.10.11 bride and groom) on a super fun flip book station.  This is where guests get into a booth, do something funny for 30 seconds and a series of pictures develops to create a flip picture book.  Check out video from the station.  Pretty cool!  Thanks to A Little Scene flipbooks for sharing this.

It’s Lindsay and James’ Wedding Day!!!

17 Sep

Lindsay and James are such a cute, fun-loving couple and we are so excited to have the opportunity to work with them to make their dream wedding a reality. Their venue is one that is close to our hearts – Prado Balboa Park and they have some amazing vendors, who we know will create a very special day for the couple.

Our happy couple met through friends at USD six years ago and when James was ready to propose, he knew he had to do something special.  So instead of simply asking for her hand in marriage, James sent Lindsay on a scavenger hunt across San Diego to give her clues that led to the big question.  So from Lindsay’s favorite frozen yogurt shop t0 USD, James eventually led Lindsay to Fiesta Island where as the fireworks created a stunning backdrop, he got on one knee, opened a little box and professed his love.  She said yes and today they will get married amongst a beautiful garden backdrop.

A special thank you to Lisa of Elle G Photography for sharing their engagement pictures and many, many congratulations to Lindsay and James!!!

It’s Lindsay and Chris’ Wedding Day!

10 Sep

Today, Jenn is up at Villa de Flores in Rancho Santa Fe, celebrating our latest couple, Lindsay and Chris.  The couple, who we have been helping plan from New York, is excited to tie the knot with family and friends on such a perfect day to get married – 9.10.11!

They got engaged on a fun road trip on the East Coast.  Last June, Chris suggested a spontaneous getaway to Maine. He was unusually eager to take charge of planning the entire trip immediately, and Lindsay was more than happy to go along with it. With lots of daytrips on the schedule, the first stop was Kennebunkport. After walking through the seaside town, Chris suggested a drive along the water to see the rocky coastline and the old estates. They pulled over and walked out on the rocks, where they found a rustic bench overlooking the water. Chris got down on one knee, asked Lindsay to marry him, and she said YES!

CONGRATULATIONS Lindsay and Chris!!!  Thank you so much for letting First Comes Love be a part of your special day!
