This former florist and wedding planner did everything right. The couple got ready together at their suite in Laguna Beach, with their two dogs, and absolutely no stress. If you are a couple, I wish more couples did this.. While she got her hair done, the groom to be finished writing his vows while sipping on espresso looking out onto the pacific ocean. He buttoned up her wedding dress, and she adjusted his bow tie. They drove themselves to the wedding and I hitched a ride in the backseat.
The ceremony was minimalistic, and the bride made her entrance walking down the stairs of the bamboo garden, to a live music gospel choir. Dinner was served buffet style, which I LOVE as it keep people moving talking, and the energy in the space up and lively.
