I have to admit, I will never get tired of looking at all the gorgeous details of a wedding. It is just so amazing to witness a special day of a couple through all their beautiful photographs. This wedding is so romantic, that each and every detail screams sweet love. The kind of wedding that has me stopping in my tracks because I just have to take a moment to breath in all the charm and prettiness. I’ve seen my fair share of simple and classic weddings, but never before have I seen such love and heart-melting details from each and every moment of the wedding. I can not stop smiling. This wedding is just pure joy and happiness. The kind of feeling that every wedding should have. I want to crawl into the computer and be a guest at this wedding, so I can be be surrounded by all the joy and love that is so obviously there. All beautifully captured by David Marano Photography, these images speak for themselves. So don’t hesitate for a moment, and instead take a look at the lovely images this wedding has to offer.
From the bride…
Our wedding was on March 23, 2013 and both the ceremony and reception were at The Crystal Cove Canyon Club in Newport Beach. Since I’m from Michigan and Erik is from New York, we chose this location because we knew although it wasn’t right on the beach, we could still have the beach feel, along with beautiful green valleys and blooming Spring flowers. The ceremony was in a beautiful area over looking the green valleys, and the reception was only feet away with the same beautiful, crisp view. The wedding was simple, classic, and elegant. The colors we chose were ivory, brown and hints of greens within the flowers. We chose neutral colors because our location was so extremely beautiful, the neutral colors just kept the classic look that we wanted, without being overpowering. We had about 120 guests that included our closest friends and family. We had people traveling from Michigan, Maryland, Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, Virginia, Chicago, and New York. What a wonderful feeling to know that your loved ones will travel so far to spend your most beautiful day with you, and celebrate for a week! Since we are both in the service industry, we decided that a sit down dinner would be way too basic. Therefore, we chose to do buffet style, THE RIGHT WAY!! We had about 12 items on our menu created by Chef Rich Mead of Sage Restaurant, which included an oyster bar, lamb and cous cous, curry chicken, calamari ceviche… to name a few. It was outstanding and I am so happy we were able to have such fresh, creative items to share with everyone!
The day could of not been anymore perfect. My mom said I planned my wedding just as I said I always would. I loved the feeling of love that day and I can only hope that every bride experiences that wonderful feeling.
We are still getting compliments on our wedding photos!! Everyone was so in love with David Marano Photography. He never missed a moment and our pictures were just perfect. The colors and variety were absolutely breathtaking and we could not have been happier. We are so incredibly happy we were able to have them photograph our most special day!!
