I could end the blog here as those words clearly express my thoughts of this wonderful wedding celebration. From the early morning hair and make-up to the last dance, Ryan and Michelle’s wedding day went PERFECTLY.
The two were married by Rev. Brandon Dang at the beautiful Our Lady Queen of Angels Catholic Church in Newport Beach, California. Sharing Ryan and Michelle’s love of music, Rev. Brandon surprised them by singing Jason Mraz’s “Lucky” while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. Following the ceremony of their union, family and friends made their way to the newly renovated Huntington Bay Club for cocktails and dinner.
While the wedding party posed for gorgeous beach photos as the sun set, their guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and local brews from Anaheim Brewery on the massive deck overlooking Huntington Harbor. A custom art exhibit, featuring concert posters from Michelle and Ryan’s journey through their relationship, filled the cocktail hour with memories of their dating years. Guests fittingly signed 45s to have their attendance “on the record!”
As the moon took to the sky, guests were escorted upstairs to a classically styled, romantic dining room setting the stage for what would be a stunning evening of love, family, dancing, and fun. Heartfelt speeches paved the way for comically timed toasts and perfectly choreographed dances. Michelle and Ryan led the dance floor all night only taking a breather to cut the classic, three tiered, white wedding cake. Family and friends filled the dance floor all evening celebrating the union of Michelle and Ryan.
It was a honor to have planned this wedding with these two! We are truly humbled by Michelle and Ryan’s love and kindness. The wedding was perfect in every way.
It was loving, beautiful, classic, heartfelt, and stunning.
