When it comes to weddings, I’m all about keeping things cozy. And that’s the very route this Cali couple took with just 75 guests on the list. Joji Rose brought the “big family dinner” vision to life, and Onelove Photography was on the scene to snap every second. Happy swooning!
From the Bride… Our wedding was an intimate gathering of 75 people, and our wedding guests witnessed us profess our vows to each other at the Old Mission Rey De Espana Church in Mission Hills, on a perfect California winter day. Following our ceremony, we headed at Westlake Village Inn, where we had our venue in the Vintage Room. We feel so incredibly blessed not only to just be married to each other, but that we got to share our day with the people that we love. We also wanted to make sure our family and friends had a good time.
When we were planning our day, we wanted it to feel like a big family dinner. We wanted to be relaxed and not obligated to a wedding day timeline or tradition. We decided to keep our guest list small and everything else really simple and intimate, and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! We wanted to create a vintage rustic, and ethereal feel, and we felt like it really didn’t need a whole lot of decoration.
One of the most important decisions was our photographer, since that is who captures the precious moments and general feel of your day for you to look at for a lifetime. We spent weeks researching until finding my perfect fit. Choosing a venue that included everything so that I didn’t have to worry about the other details made a huge difference. Our special thanks and gratitude to my mom, Joji Rose who designed the event and arranged our floral design together with the rest of the family and our coordinator Korina Banks. Our wedding day turned out absolutely perfect and we couldn’t be happier!
