Lisa and Matt

January 5, 2010

Where does the time go?? The holidays came and went in such a flash I haven’t had time to share any fun weddings…however, I did manage to get some shots of our final wedding of 2009….

What a perfect wedding to end the year with. The theme of Lisa and Matt’s wedding was “Winter Wonderland”, and Lisa’s mother Anita did a spectacular job making it come to life! Hanging snowflakes, Silver chivari chairs, blue uplighting, amazing floral centerpieces, what a wonderful production it was! Enjoy the gorgeousness…

Congratulations to Lisa and Matt!


Heather and Chris

Heather and Chris got married here several weeks ago, and what a great job they did with their fall theme and decor. I loved the pomanders they created for the ceremony!

Congratulations to you both, and enjoy your journey as man and wife!


Amanda and Brock

I love Amanda and Brock’s Fall Wedding theme! Their place cards were maple leaves attached to this amazing pot of branches…My favorite detail of the night, not to mention the chocolate brown linens and wedding cake. They made such a cute couple!  Thank you guys for letting me be a part of your special day!

Mili and Hung

October 16, 2009

My favorite ceremony ever. Mili and Hung got married here last Saturday, and they are the cutest couple. I don’t typically cry at ceremonies, but this one almost brought me to tears! The vows were incredible. Mili said she loved Hung because he loves her for exactly who she is, because he values family, because he gives up football sundays to take her shopping, and because he built her shoe rack by hand so she could see all her shoes on display and it feels like she’s shopping at Nordstrom! I nearly died when I heard that, it was so sweet. Hung talked about how he loved driving her to work and picking her up and hearing about her stories from her day. I loved Mili’s dress, i’m a major sucker for pretty ruffles…Congratulations to you guys and thank you for sharing your day with us!ChoiNquyenPics 013

Tashana and Bryan

October 12, 2009

 What an amazing reception! Tashana and Bryan got married here last Friday, and sure did a great job with their design. Everything was created by Bryan’s mom, Karen. The centerpieces were created by her, not to mention how awesome that mini-car was that the flowergirl and ringbearer used for their Grand Entrance! The centerpieces lit up and all those lanterns and candles made the room look amazing….

Maren and Brian

October 1, 2009

Maren and Brian held there wedding reception in our Mariposa Ballroom a few weeks ago. Their concept was so cute, the table names were based around Brian’s wedding proposal which happened in Chicago. Table names like “Are You Serious?”, “Carriage Ride” and “Window Seat” made for fun conversation pieces…

Nancy and Randy

September 28, 2009

….and we’re back! It’s been forever since my last post, but wedding season is kicking in and we will be in full swing!

Nancy and Randy got married here on September 4th, and I enjoyed all the care and detail they put into this wedding. I especially loved those cute little Godiva chocolate flowers they gave to the kids! I liked the added touch of the thank-you cards they gave to their guests as well. Everything was done with the help of their family, and it’s so great to see everyone stepping up to help out! Congratulations to you both, it’s so lovely to see two people so clearly in love!

Kristopher and Robert

July 13, 2009

Kristopther and Robert got married in California about a year ago and decided to hold a wedding reception at Orange Tree for their family and friends to celebrate the wonderful occasion. I loved their calla lilly centerpieces on the head table. They even provided a customized menu for the dinner.

Lorraine and Andrew got married here at Orange Tree on the 4th of July! Lorraine made tissue pom-poms to hang in our Mariposa ballroom, which was so adorable! I loved working with Lorraine, she has such a happy spirit and couldn’t have looked more amazing that day. Best wishes on a long and happy life together!

Joyce and Jim held their wedding reception in our Mariposa Ballroom last Saturday. What a beautiful bride she was! The couple opted for the white folding chairs rather than our regular ballroom chairs for the reception:
