Maria and Darren were married at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel in Riverside, Calif. on June 14. “We met nineteen years ago when we were 12 years old,” Maria said. “I was the one who chased him! I remember telling my older brother’s best friend that I loved Darren and was going to marry him.” The bride flattered in a fitted strapless lace gown and cathedral-length veil. Her wavy locks were clipped back with a sparkly hair pin and she opted for a simple necklace and earrings. She carried a classic bouquet of white peonies. The groom wore a black suit with a patterned neck tie and a white peony boutonniere. Her ‘maids wore bright red chiffon floor-length strapless dresses and carried bouquets of white peonies and roses. “Since my bridesmaids dresses were so bright and fun, I didn’t want to over do it with accent colors,” Maria said. The groomsmen were outfitted in gray three-piece suits, patterned ties, and calla lily boutonnieres. A reception followed the traditional church ceremony in the music room at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa. Guests sat in chiavari chairs at round tables with tall floral centerpieces. “I kept the linens and flowers very simple; all ivory,” Maria said. ” I tied in the theme of my lace wedding dress to the cake, votive candles and all the bouquets were wrapped in lace.” After dinner, guests indulged in an all-white tiered cake topped with white peonies, of course! “I really wanted to keep it traditional yet contemporary at the same time,” Maria said. She definitely succeeded, and even managed to gather her all of her guests together to take a group photo! See the full board here.
