The couple booked Ashley from Agape Planning and Lin & Jirsa and a day of old world elegance ensued… Wendy was thrilled to have her closest family in tow to help select her Judd Waddell gown from Erin Cole.  The satin fabric and classic beading reminded them of her grandmother’s dress.  The couple loved every bit of the planning process: the tastings, the breaks from the chilly London weather, taking engagement photos in Laguna Beach (complete with photos in the red London phone booth in Laguna Village), and bonding with their loved ones and amazing vendors.  The rose garden looked absolutely idyllic.  They were married under a breathtaking chuppah adorned with roses and crystals; Inviting Occasion couldn’t have designed more perfect florals in the sapphire, violet, and dusty rose palette.  After a cocktail hour of sushi and libations,  the celebration moved into the East Room, which was transformed with candelabras, awe-inspiring centerpieces, mood lighting and flowers galore.
