JOANNA + STEVE WEDDING    |    DECEMBER 21, 2019

Getting Ready at Brea Embassy Suites

Joanna wanted to take her getting ready photos with her mother. This precious moment was a great way to calm the nerves and start her big day! Her mother wore a beautiful two piece suit set that matched the color of Joanna's bridesmaid dresses.

Ceremony at Brea Community Center

There was so much natural greenery at the venue that we decided to only add a minimal amount of floral pieces to blend in with the venue. The southern smilax installation for ceremony was by far one of the most simple and chic installments that our floral team  worked on!

Cocktail Hour

The couple decided to only serve beer and wine for cocktail hour and have cocktails available inside for reception. They also had these delicious appetizers prepared by Ban Chan A La Carte.

Reception in the Banquet Hall

The couple was worried that the banquet hall at the community center would be difficult to not be portrayed as a gym (especially with he wooden floors). However, when we revealed the reception area to the couple J+S was so amazed by the transformation of the room! The draping definitely helped to create a more sophisticated look to the room (vendor details listed below).
