Hubert and Christine’s wedding brought their families together in a beautiful setting; Villa del Sol d’Oro an Italian Renaissance style villa in Sierra Madre, California.
Wedding planning choices:
- Choice of location certainly influences design. And in turn, design preferences can influence choice of location.
- What to wear? I really enjoy the Asian tradition of “the second grand entrance”. This provides an opportunity for the bride and groom to reappear sporting a change of outfit. So if you fall in love with 2 dresses just change and have a second grand entrance :-)
- Who to invite? Simply invite people you like.
- Music choices. Elegant Music specializes in Live Music and DJ/Master of Ceremonies packages. Hubert and Christine chose a duo of Cello and Piano to perform for their wedding ceremony and DJ/Master of Ceremonies to conduct the festivities of their wedding reception.
Wedding Planning Decisions
A wedding is not without its challenges. Logistics are considered, problems are predicted and solved, and barriers are overcome.
Through expert planning, coordination, and execution, the event smoothly progresses from one activity to the next.
A special thank you to Jessica and Dustin Rolph of Three Little Birds Wedding and Event Planning. On the day of, Dustin was very calm and professional and coordinated among many other things, perfect wedding ceremony processionals.
