Terranea Resort Wedding - Shanzana and Phil

If you think dating your co-worker is a bad idea then you really need to meet Shanzana and Phil. When you see how strong their connection is, you realize that where you meet has no effect on true love. In fact, being in love while working together is one huge aspect of marriage. These two already have a big head start, and speaking from experience this is no easy feat.

While they met at work, they spent many dates here at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes. Returning to such a special place for their wedding is such an awesome idea, and we love seeing how a resort as beautiful as Terranea can serve as a backdrop for all the important milestones in their journey together. We have to admit, we were quite smitten with the place as well and were constantly planning our own return for a family vacation someday.

Shanzana and Phil chose a great team to help them throw the perfect wedding. They had the amazing Kerrie from Platinum Weddings plan and coordinate the day, who by the way made our job super easy and fun. Beautiful flowers were from Flowers By Laurel (just look at that elephant made of carnations!). And one of the coolest DJ's, Robert from Vox DJ's, who loved getting the crowd involved by dancing and singing with the guests.

We could see how happy everyone was at the wedding, especially Shanzana and Phil who really threw this party for their closest friends and family. They actually had a courthouse wedding a few weeks before this party, so they definitely could have stopped there. But throwing this party, with all the work and effort needed to do it right, really shows how important everyone is to them.

Lanikuhonua Cultural Center Wedding in Oahu - Cheryl and Jason

We've never really understood why so many people get married in Hawaii, until now. The last time either of us were in Hawaii we were too young to remember, so naturally we didn't know what to expect. We were thinking it would just be like any other wedding, but with palm trees, ocean views, and tropical weather. We were SO wrong.

We spent about 4 days wandering around the island of Oahu before Cheryl and Jason's wedding, and started to finally understand everyone's attraction to this place. It's the people, the landscapes, the air, the food, the attitudes, the sky, the sand, the EVERYTHING. Why WOULDN'T anyone get married here? We have a feeling Cheryl and Jason chose this place not only for themselves, but for the select handful of guests they invited to their wedding. They must have wanted their friends and family to experience Hawaii the right way, and they would be there to help guide everyone.

This sums up Cheryl and Jason. Two people in love who care so much for their friends and family that they tend to put them first before themselves. We know that just looking through these pictures makes us incredibly happy, and replaying that day in our heads brings back so many emotions. We are thankful for having them as our family, for allowing us to document their wedding, and for allowing us to truly experience Hawaii. Thanks to them, we are planning to visit the islands at least once a year. We really have fallen head-over-heels in love with this place.

Vellano Country Club Wedding - Elice and Donald

True Love is forever. That is something we've heard many times during weddings, and these two are living proof of that phrase. Elice and Donald have been together for quite a while, and although marriage usually means the beginning of a new chapter, these two are way past that and are ahead of most couples. When we first met them, we could sense a level of understanding between the two, something that only seasoned couples have. It's no secret that we LOVE weddings, but more so we love couples who are in LOVE. Elice and Donald, we love you!

Their wedding was held at the beautiful Vellano Country Club in Chino Hills, California. This place is a hidden gem, and can only be found if you were told how to get there. Elice and Donald's elegant taste was all over this wedding, from their choice in shoes to their decision in getting Kogi to provide a late night snack (we looooove Kogi!!!). The guests partied hard, and we were eating up all the fun with our cameras. 

PS. If you're wondering what the handcuffs mean, it's a special gift from the officiant who is a retired police chief. It was an awesome surprise to everyone, including Elice and Donald!
