This California wedding was made extra special by the participation of the couple’s two young sons. Adorably bearing wedding signs at the ceremony and later covering their eyes when their parents kissed, they brought the charm of family and children to this pretty wedding. You can feel the family happiness everywhere at this event – making the celebration even sweeter.
Marya + Charles | July 9, 2016 | Laguna Beach, California
The Ceremony It was small and intimate, beachy and romantic. Ou officiant was funny (he is a comedian also by trade as well as an Officiant on the side). He cracked jokes about this is the “last time Charles will ever be right again”. And how we have to repeat after him to “vow to immediately update our Facebook status”. Our ceremony was lighthearted and family oriented as well since our two young sons were in it.
The Reception It was lively and fun, lots of dancing, the kids were stripping haha (my kids love to run around without their clothes on at home so they ended up stripping down to their skivvies it was so hot!)
Marya’s Dress Search I tried on maybe 20 dresses. I ended up with a custom dress I combined what I liked from a couple different dresses from the same designer (Fiore Couture). I picked the top half of one dress but the bottom half of the other. I loved the intricate elaborate beading of the one, but the soft, flowy, swirly-ness of the bottom of the other (it looked like frosting). Especially when it moves.
How She Felt In Her Fiore Couture Gown Amazing! Beautiful! Show-stopping!
