I met Christine and Sheldon through the Portofino Hotel via their preferred vendor list (... you can find your girl here on that said list!) and it was fun at first sight! Together we planned an elegant family affair with the beautiful Redondo Beach Marina as our backdrop. The weather couldn't have been more perfect as Christine walked down the aisle with her father (a story all in its own) and their reception held killer dance moves, heartfelt toasts, and SO much love in one room.

My favorite moment of the day was helping the couple get ready for their first look. Sheldon and Christine decided to surprise each other - Christine with her full bridal look, Sheldon with either cutting his hair (... and it was getting pretty long!) or keeping it long and luscious, but obviously styled ;)  I had the pleasure getting Sheldon ready and to see his face when he caught sight of Christine was priceless.

I live for moments just like that ...

I am proud to say that these two have become friends of mine and I just can't wait to see what married life holds for them <3
