You had us at "inspired by the royals" - this gorgeous day planned by Sweetest Love Events is what classic weddings are all about. A chic Monique Lhuillier gown, elegant bridal updo, timeless green and white flowers by The Bloom of Time and of course, a love story that will never go out of style. Passionate royalists, don't miss out on the full gallery of images captured by Anya Kernes Photography! From the Bride... Our vision and overall feel for the wedding was simple elegance. Something that would be classic and timeless. I took a lot of inspiration from the royal weddings, as cliche as that may sound. I love all the tradition and elegance.Franciscan Gardens was the only venue we toured and booked it soon after. It was a great combination of top service, location and intimacy. We wanted our guests to enjoy the entire venue and we were able to use the indoor and outdoor spaces. The venue really spoke for itself and we loved that about it. We were excited to incorporate some of our special memories and interests as a couple into the wedding. One of mutual best friends officiated the wedding. All our table names were named after our favorite films or TV shows. My Mom brought leis to pay tribute to our Hawaiian side of the family and we made a donation to America's VetDogs on behalf of our guests. Overall it was an amazing day, filled with so many special memories. Our team of vendors made the day absolutely unforgettable and we were able to spend the best day with all our closest family and friends. One of the best memories for us was watching everyone enjoying themselves, eating, drinking and dancing. Looking down at our wedding party head table with the gorgeous decorations, flowers and chandeliers. The wonderful speeches made by our families, a mini college reunion and great music makes for the best day of our lives.
