The second I saw that signature Chanel No 5 bottle, I just knew this wedding was going to be a beaut. And it lived up to any and all expectations with a few twists thrown in. Sure there’s the classic garden florals by Enchanted Garden and the take-your-breath-away imagery by Erin J Saldana Photography. But there’s also a few equestrian details folded into the day and a film by Zomei Video Productions making it one for the record books.
This wedding was a romantic and charming celebration at Calamigos Equestrian Center complete with horses especially for the portraits. The couple opted to go the extra mile and pay for a hour with the horses for photos. All the lovely flowers and garden themed details were by Enchanted Garden Floral Design and there are lots of other DIY details by the bride, Evelyn. A cute “just married” sign from etsy and a friend made the tree “finger print” drawing for the guestbook sign in. The desert station featured a display of candies and favorite foreign treats. They had a secret swing dance choreographed and planned, so halfway through the reception they changed and made another grand entrance. A live band provided their music most of the night and a trusty ipod took care of the rest.
