Hello~ I am back today with a lovely treat: a look at another Bella Destinee Wedding! This one comes from my dear friend, the talented Taek photography, and is for one of my favorite couples ever. When Karen and her mom came to meet me for the first time, I fell in love with them and their vision for their wedding. They both had a great taste in just about everything so the planning was very smooth, and FUN.
Karen wanted the ambiance of her wedding to be classic and romantic. She envisioned a beautiful ballroom beaming with color, light, and music, with the program to be fun, energetic, and filled with warmth and laughter. So the Neighborhood church and Trump National in Palos Verdes provided the backdrop for all of this! Speaking of backdrop, the Neighborhood church has one of the most breathtaking ocean view you can imagine.
The day started with some sprinkles of rain but it did not stop the bride & groom from smiling. They got ready at the Terranea resort and took some gorgeous getting-ready photos. The ceremony was romantic and very touching. It was timeless and classic just like the bride. She rocked two dresses that evening and their first dance was a huge hit! We showed the “love story” video first which was very sweet and original then the couple showed off their moves! The food was delicious and dessert bar was gone in seconds! Our DJ kept the dance floor packed until the end.
Karen and Sam, you were amazing to work with! It was an absolute pleasure. I wish you get married every weekend so we could do it all over again! I am so happy for you both and hope that your newlywed phase lasts a lifetime! xoxo~
