Brittany + Brian, Surf and Sand Resort, Laguna Beach

I have to admit that Brittany and Brian's wedding held a special place in my heart throughout all the fun we had planning as it was the first time I was to plan a wedding at the very venue where I tied the knot almost one year ago. It was bound to happen sooner or later- and I was beyond thrilled that it was sooner, and not later. The Surf and Sand has, in my opinion, one of the most breathtaking ceremony site views that Orange County has to offer. On the Catalina Terrace, you literally feel as if you are floating on the Pacific, with Catalina just off in the distance. Beyond the sentimental factor I had an incredible time planning with Brittany and Brian because they openly embraced many of the ideas and input I had throughout planning. It was amazing watching as the concept of their color palette, black and white with yellow accents, blossomed into the final product. And it turned out gorgeous, if I do say myself! Remembering the newlyweds grinning from ear to ear that night as they boogeyed with their fun-loving friends and family, brought a smile to my face long after the Big Day had come and gone. I hope these pictures, straight from the lense of Sarah K. Chen, will bring one to yours as well.





Brittany took the whole 'fun bridal shoes' idea to a whole new level!










I just love petal tosses






Jocey with Joceybella Invites hit another homerun with all the paper details for the wedding- seriously, she is such a genius



Brittany and Brian went to NYC for their honeymoon (the two are avid tennis players so they were able to be in town for the US Open!), so they decided to name each table after a famous landmark in the city




The bouquets all consisted of sleek calla lillies- white for Brittany, yellow for the girls- courtesy of the lovely and ever so artistic Christine at The Spiraled Stem

Kerrie -
Congrats on another beautiful wedding. I loved working on the invtiations and napkins for Brittany & Brian. It looked like a fabulous event and that the initial invites set a great tone in color and with the monogram! Take care!
