A Beautiful & Memorable Terranea Wedding!

This weekend at the beautiful Terranea Resort was Sara & Jonathan's wedding.  It was such an amazing day filled with love, laughter, kind words, and a team of amazing vendors that worked incredibly hard to make the day special.  The bride and groom were two of the loveliest people we have ever had the pleasure of sharing a wedding journey with!  

Here are some photos from the unforgettable day!


If you've never been to Terranea, we would suggest visiting soon.  The views from the cliffs are breathtaking and the perfect backdrop for gorgeous and romantic memories.  The staff is absolutely incredible and delightful to work with.


Sara and Jonathan picked a color scheme of pearl and ivory with accents of light blue, blush pink and slate grey.  The bridesmaids were in stunning slate grey dresses and the groomsmen in handsome grey suits.  Special thanks to Stormi Yates of Stormi Beauty and Joe Alvarez for the bridal party's amazing hair and make-up.


The ceremony took place at the the Catalina Point with 360 degree views of the ocean.  At the end of the aisle is a gazebo which was draped with sheer fabric to compliment the movement of the ocean.  The flowers by Amy Marella of The Hidden Garden Floral Design were a combination of roses and hydrangeas in white, ivory, green, blush pink and light blue.  Rose petals were scattered along the aisle and under the gazebo.  The ceremony site was spectacular!


The violinist from Elegant Music played a solo of Bittersweet Symphony.  It added such a dramatic element as the bride walked down the aisle with her father.


Sara and Jonathan met at one of Marianne Williamson's Tuesday night Seminars.  Marianne is a spiritual activist, author, lecturer and founder of The Peace Alliance.  She has published ten books, including four New York Times #1 Best Sellers.  It meant so much to Sara and Jonathan to have her officiate their ceremony and Marianne felt honored to be a part of their wedding.  A large portion of their ceremony included words from her book called Illuminata:  A Return to Prayer.


The talented trio of the Mark Castrillon Band entertained guests during the cocktail reception and throughout dinner service.  Sara and Jonathan had seen them play the night of their engagement and were thrilled to have them play at their wedding.  They were amazing!!!  Everyone loved their music and we can't wait to see them play again!



The decor in the Catalina Ballroom stayed true to the bride and groom's color scheme with silver linens and chairs, a combination of centerpieces incorporating light blue hydrangea, cafe au laits, dusty miller, eucalyptus, sahara roses, vendella roses, lavender and juniper berries.  Thanks to Fabian Gracian of Event Designs by Fabian for the white dance floor with the couple's monogram and for perfectly lighting the room with accents of blue and amber.  

The cake was done by Vanilla Bake Shop and was not only a work of art, but it was delicious too!


DJ Jon Brown of Unite Entertainment rocked the party and had all of the guests dancing the entire night...and after a bit of persuasion from Sara and her bridesmaids, agreed to share some of his own breakdancing skills!  It was such a fun and memorable night for all!  Guests had a great time dancing and enjoyed the photo booth that was provided by our amazing photographer, Jen O'Sullivan.




Special thanks to my unbelievably supportive and energetic team including Mary Dann, Melissa Churlonis, Sarah Porcaro, Sarah Barret, Janel Gonzalez and Leanne Lagace!  The night would not have been as incredible as it was without you.


We wish Sara and Jonathan all the best and we are so happy we could be a part of their special day!


Much gratitude!
Mary

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
