brenda + omar

It had been awhile since I'd helped with a wedding. But I was instantly reminded of how much I love them on Saturday, when I had the privilege of working with Ashley of Agape Planning, LLC.

It was a familiar venue. I had worked at least three weddings at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda -- making the set-up of the East Room a smooth process. The bride had excellent taste, complimenting her pink centerpieces with champagne linens and golden candelabras. One of her unique touches was the Mexican candy bar. It was a HUGE hit. When the East Room opened at 7pm, more than half the candy was gone before the salads were even served! A delicious tri-tip and chicken dinner was served by White House Catering.

Before dancing the night away, the couple gave a heartfelt thank you to all their guests for all their love and support. You could tell how grateful Brenda and Omar were for all their friends and family that came to celebrate their special day.

The entire day ran smoothly. No one seemed stressed out -- not even the bride and the groom. And it was a reminder of the atmosphere I want to help create for weddings or any event I plan -- calm, peaceful, stress-free, worry-free. So at the end of the day, all my client needs to think about is having fun, and enjoying themselves completely. And for me, that is one of the best gifts I could give someone.

Here are some pictures from the beautiful wedding!
