Wedding filled with California Love

pinit
Janine and Rusty Wertz

Set in a venue that represents the couples love for the beach and the outdoors in Southern California we present the wedding of Rusty Werts to Janine Torres. The couple was married at St. Edward Church in Dana Point, CA where they choose to incorporate the Brides Filipino wedding traditions as well as recite their own vows to each other to provide a more meaningful ceremony. Janine tells us the highlight of the Wedding for her was when the priest surprised the couple by reading love letters the couple wrote to each other, She recalls “When Father Martin told us to write them, he told us he was not going to use them in the wedding but just to get to know us. We didn’t know he would read them word for word in front of all of our guests in the church. It was hilarious, special and a moment we will never forget in our entire lives.”

Jenga Guest Book

The celebration then continued afterward at Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano. Janine and Rusty were going for the fresh, fun and outdoor feel. Being in the heart of SJC, the reception had a natural rustic look with a Spanish influence, which the couple loves. A fun idea the couple chose to incorporate was to replace the traditional guest book with jumbo Jenga pieces for their guests to sign and the couple to enjoy as a favorite game of theirs. Also at the reception, a unique and special moment included a special surprise birthday cake presented to the Father of the Bride after his emotional father daughter dance and speech.

Janine’s advice to couples currently planning: “Prioritize what is really important to you (whether that be the photography or food, etc.) and focus more of your attention and budget toward those items. Never regret the decisions you make for the wedding, because obviously being married to your best friend is your highest priority.”

Bride and Groom take center stage

Today’s Real Wedding truly represents the brides advice for couples planning a wedding “Do it your way!”.

Vanessa and Brandon celebrated their special day in a personal way, choosing a location that was special and unique to them. Being a Drama Teacher, Vanessa felt that a theater was the best venue to say their “I do’s”. The celebration then continued at a restaurant, La Zingara Trattoira, which was a perfect setting for the couples personal style and taste. Brandon and Vanessa wanted something smaller and intimate, Vanessa explains “The look I was going for was soft, simple, modern, and elegant, and I think we pulled it off well!”

Sunshine filled Garden Wedding

This real wedding takes place in Summerfield, North Carolina on a beautiful sunny day. The weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding, which Amanda, the bride, has always wanted for her marriage. The venue, the Gardens at Gray Gables, was filled with flowers and beauty. In addition to flowers, they decided to add a little bit of a vintage twist, using Skeleton keys all around which also aligned perfectly with their wedding invitation design, Antique Chic.

Something special the bride chose to do with her ‘something blue’ was to wear a pair of blue suede shoes while walking down the aisle to "The Girl" by City and Colour. Amanda also offers some advice for those currently planning a wedding, “Start planning early, the smaller the better, keep calm and drink champagne, and remember It's you and your grooms day so do things the way you want and have fun!”

Amanda had many highlights from the day but the best was a surprise serenade by her now Husband, Travis, who sang "Hard to Love" by Lee Bryce. Another fun addition came half way through the reception when some of the couple’s guys friends got up and sang to the crowd with a little Backstreet Boys.
