Vy and David were married at Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine, Calif. on November 2. “We became friends over a mutual love of coffee, movies, music, and Disney, and realized that we also made great traveling companions,” Vy said. “After several trips throughout Asia, we became inseparable.” The bride wore a strapless lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with her hair sideswept in loose curls, while the groom wore a light gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore chiffon navy blue dresses with hi-lo hemlines and carried bouquets of roses, freesiaas, and seeded eucalyptus wrapped in satin. “Our wedding inspiration was our theme of ‘favorite things,'” she said. “We wanted to incorporate the different aspects of our relationship that we enjoyed and wanted to share and highlight them with our family and friends.” Notice the Lego 3-D superhero figurine on this groomsmen’s lapel? Each one also wore revovler and holster socks. “We got married on a warm November day,” Vy said. “Much warmer for a fall day than we had anticipated! Some even traveled as far as Vietnam and the Philippines to be a part of our special day.” The ceremony arch was drapped with fabric and pinned with pom poms, aisles were lined with craft beer bottles, and folding chairs included a crossword puzzle. “Our fan programs featured a ‘Do you know the couple?’ crossword puzzle for guests to spend time playing before the ceremony started,” she said. After the outdoor nuptials, cocktail hour began with signature mojito drinks. Guests found their seats at the reception via “Admit One” tickets. “I wanted to keep things simple,” Vy said. Table names were movie posters, and at each place setting, there was coffee favor bags. “Neither of us are fans of cake, so we opted for a desser bar featuring our favorite sweets,” she said. Desserts included cheesecake, cupcakes, lemon tartlets, and macarons. See the full board here.

Diana + Junior: A Berry Beautiful Multicultural Summer California Garden Wedding By Dear Darling Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Diana and Junior were married at Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden in Arcadia, Calif. on July 6. They first met at work. “When Junior walked into our office for his first day, it was crust-at-first-sight,” Diana said. “The following day, a group of co-workers and I went to dinner and someone invited him along unbeknowst to me. I had made a pact with a co-worker earlier in the year to NEVER date anyone at work. But when Junior walked into the restaurant, I leaned over and whispered, ‘I’m breaking the pact.'” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a Queen Anne neckline, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a solid tie and pocket square. “Our goal was to keep the entire process as predictable and simple as possible,” she said. “Everyone we talked to cared about three things: food, booze, and cake. So, we kept the ceremony under 15 minutes, which doesn’t mean the vows were cut off.” In addition, there was also a traditional Korean ceremony too.”Personally, this was my favorite part,” Diana said. “It was the perfect way to cut up cocktail hour and a fun way to pay homage to our culture. Catching the dates and chestnuts [in the apron] indicate how many girls or boys you will have. Apparently, we will be having 12 sons and 5 daughters.” Sticking with an English garden theme, reception tables were in an U-shape formation, decorated with overflowing compote centerpieces and vintage vases and vessels. Fun fun: the olive branches at each place setting symbolized peace. “The berry table cards were such a refreshing treat, and the dessert table was the prettiest part of the entire wedding!” she said. The newlyweds’ performed their first dance to “I Found You” by Alabama Shades. “The day was warm, but once the sun set, it was perfect for dancing,” Diana said.
