What can I say about these two that their images don't already showcase? To put it simply, I LOVE them. Stephanie and Daniel were so much fun to work with, and we seriously had a blast at their wedding! The phone calls and texts I would get from each of them always had me cracking up. These two goofballs are clearly meant for each other, and I'm so honored they chose me (another fellow goofball) to coordinate their wedding. This fun-loving couple said “I do” with an ocean view in the woodsy town of Cambria, on Leffingwell Landing, with panoramic views of the sparkling sea. The blue of the ocean inspired many other blue elements throughout this wedding, and the most show-stopping of them all was Stephanie’s wedding dress! Talk about something blue… We love when brides aren't afraid to wear colorful wedding dresses, and Stephanie, looked absolutely STUNNING in her custom-made, blue Estee' Couture gown (I literally cried when I saw her in it for the first time). The light, dusty blue gown contrasted nicely with navy suits worn by Daniel, his groomsmen, and his bridesmen. All the blue was complimented by blush and burgundy tones, representing a variety of hues which all flowed together seamlessly. The bridesmaids and groomsmaids all wore variations of blush. Daniel also incorporated burgundy accents within his ensemble, such as those incredible suede shoes and boutonniere ribbon, to tie in the burgundy aspects in the floral arrangements. The display of color in this wedding perfectly represented the fun personalities of our wonderful couple. One of our favorite parts of the day was during their wedding ceremony when Daniel surprised Stephanie with a board to break. Stephanie is a 5th degree black belt, and Daniel thought there would be no better way to symbolize breaking into their unified life together than to have Stephanie break a board right then and there. She cracked it in half on the first try (thank goodness), and it was so exciting for all of us to watch! Additional highlights of this wedding included a custom-made ceremony installment of a crescent moon, an entertaining flower man who sprinkled the aisle with burgundy petals, Stephanie and Daniel’s sweet vows to each other which incorporated their beautiful love story, the iconic Breakfast Club fist pump during their sunset photos, a tear-jerking first dance to “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds, roasting s’mores over the fire pit at the reception, a photo booth with street signs reading “Daniel Lane & Stephanie Drive,” and Stephanie and Daniel performing a wild dance to a remix of “Pony” at the end of the night. What a perfect example of true love and marrying your best friend. I loved every minute of their special day, and I wish them an abundance of White Claw for the rest of their days!
