mary and brian - waterfront resort, huntington beach

mary and brian were special to me from the start because the groom's name is brian (like my hubs!) and they got engaged at the surf and sand resort in laguna beach (where MY brian proposed too!)...so needless to say, we had a connection :)

the bridal bouquet was made entirely of creamy "sweet eskimo" roses, finished in white lace and a rhinestone/pearl brooch...




the flower girl dresses were so cute! like little ballerinas!


mary looked so gorgeous thanks to carina from flawless faces!



the ballroom at the hilton, huntington beach, was transformed into an ultra clean and modern environment with all white draping, a white seamless dancefloor, white chairs, white linens and white napkins...but to add a sense of femininity and romance, we did arrangements made entirely of antique pink roses, set on top of footed glass vases, alternating with low glass vases full of more antique pink roses...


all of the florals were set on top of custom made blush runners from bbj linens (thanks kimberly!)...



there is something so soft and classic about all white rentals (fabric draping, linens, napkins, chairs, dancefloor)...the florals, runners and lighting were the only "color" in the room...super chic!



the cake was set on top of my custom acrylic cake podium, which we decked out with hanging crystal strands inside...mary is a girly-girl so we had to have a bit of bling involved! :)


a special thanks to jim kennedy for the photos!!
