May and Reilly’s wedding was one of my favorites from 2018 for many reasons. The first is that May was one of the most laid-back brides I think I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, and yet she has exquisite taste. She had so many wonderful ideas to bring even more beauty and class to the Julia Morgan Hall (window boxes dripping with flowers hanging from the walls! Plates and goblets with just a slight touch of gold! Not one, but two boho chic wedding dresses!), and yet each decision was made as casually as what she was going to have for lunch during our planning meetings. The second reason that I loved this wedding was that every single vendor that worked alongside me was a trusted friend and colleague, which made the entire day run so smoothly that it was an absolute dream day for everyone involved. When we wedding professionals meet another vendor that we trust, respect, and enjoy working with, we wholeheartedly endorse them for future weddings, which becomes a win-win situation for all involved. This wedding was proof that when we all work together to make a couple’s vision come to life, the outcome can’t be anything but complete perfection.
