Hair & Make-up

Inspiration: I wanted my hair in loose, pinned back curls. I didn't want anything that looked TOO made up.

Inspiration: For make-up, I wanted slightly smokey eyes - but not too "night out on the town" smokey.

Reality: My H&MUA did an amazing job :) The look was perfect!

My Bouquet

Inspiration: I wanted all white flowers with a few small touches of green to break up all the white. 

Flowers, White, Bouquet, April joy events Flowers, White, Bouquet, Bridal, Roses, Lily, Calla, Hand, Held, Just bloomed florals, Freesia

Reality: While it wasn't EXACTLY what I was going for, I was happy. I do wish I had been a little more specific when I gave the florist my inspiration photos.

Cake

Inspiration: I wanted two all white, single tier cakes, with sugar flowers. I used this as the inspiration since I LOVED the flowers and the simple white ribbon. 

medium version

Reality: Overall I was super happy with the cake. The flowers were incredible...BUT, I wish they looked a little more like the inspiration flowers - not as closed, if that makes sense. But honestly, I can't complain because they were so beautiful!

Menus & Napkins

Inspiration: I wanted royal blue napkins folded as the menu holders.

Reality: I was really hoping to find some satin napkins, but alas I couldn't...I was still happy with the way they turned out :)

I'm also putting these reviews in the official "vendor reviews" section, but I wanted to list them in my bio for easy finding :)

Officiant: Reverend Clint Hufft

http://www.reverendclint.com/

http://www.reverendclintvideo.com/

Grade: A+

Review: Rev. Clint was fantastic! He was so easy to work with; our ceremony was absolutely PERFECT!

 

Hair & Makeup: Nicole DeAnne

http://www.nicoledeanne.net/

Grade: A+

Review: She did an amazing job on both my hair and makeup. She captured my inspirations perfectly! Both my hair and makeup lasted ALL DAY! She also did my mother and mother-in-law's hair and makeup. They were both pretty indecisive about their wedding day looks, but Nicole did a fantastic job making them look absolutely stunning without looking too made-up. I loved the fact that she does amazing hair AND makeup...I would totally recommend her to ANY bride in SoCal. 

 

Florist: JenK Floral

http://www.jenkfloraldesign.com/

Grade: A-

Review: As previously discussed with Jen, I dropped off some ribbon and my "something borrowed" the day before the wedding, to have her incorporate both into my bouquet. On the day of the wedding when my bouquet was picked up, neither were on it!! I was VERY upset about the "something borrowed" being missing (after all, I was just BORROWING it!) and a bit disappointed that my blue ribbon wasn't wrapped around the stems since it matched my shoes and DH's tie PERFECTLY. DH and I both called and spoke with the girls at the shop, and no one knew what we were talking about! {panic} Finally after several calls, they figured out what was going on and sent someone to meet me at our ceremony site to fix the issues. Once the problems were fixed I was thrilled with my bouquet, it looked, and SMELLED wonderful :) My complaint would just be that DH and I had to make multiple calls to get the problem resolved - not something that we should have had to deal with an hour or so before our wedding. I am super happy with the fact that they were professional enough to fix their mistake, and in the end my bouquet turned out the way that I had wanted it. 

 

Photographer:  Braedon Photography

http://braedonphotography.com/

http://braedonsblog.com/

Grade: A++

Review: Words cannot even being to describe how amazing Braedon was! He was so incredibly easy to work with. His personality was absolutely fantastic, and he had a contagious smile...which made taking pictures a breeze! My husband hates, hates, HATES taking pictures...but Braedon did a great job making DH feel comfortable in front of the camera. Braedon has a way of capturing even the slightest little details and expressions in his photographs. He really did the most amazing job with our photos - take a look, the pictures speak for themselves!

 

Cake: Vanilla Bake Shop

http://www.vanillabakeshop.com/

Grade: A

Review: OMG, the cakes were absolutely delicious!! The sugar flowers weren't exactly what I was going for based on my inspiration...but I can't complain too much since they were so beautiful!

 

Dinner: Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel 

http://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/Properties/LagunaNiguel/Dining/Default.htm

Grade: A+

Review: Courtney Freeman made this experience so stress free! She was so incredibly helpful. I would recommend the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel to ANY bride in Orange County. The food was simply fabulous, and the service was impeccable.
