I’m truly convinced that dining beneath the stars is the only way to celebrate your big day. That is, if you are lucky enough to live in the always-amazing California, where sunshine and gorgeous weather reign supreme. And if you add some sweet DIY details and an amazing locale (see: stunning private residence) to all of the aforementioned, it’s a gallery of pure pretty. See it all captured by Kevin Le Vu right here.
From Kevin Le Vu Photography… Amy and Jason tied the knot a couple of weeks before the new year on December 22, 2013. Their wedding ceremony and reception took place at a private estate in Rancho Mirage, CA called Solomon Estate. The property was elegant, gorgeous, and luxurious – basically all the key features in what Amy and Jason were looking for. While Southern California doesn’t get too cold, the average winter ranges around 67 degrees; however in Rancho Mirage the weather was surprisingly perfect at 77 degrees. It felt like summer, which made their outdoor wedding one of our favorites for December!
Clear skies with a view of San Gregornio Mountains as their backdrop, nothing beats a short getaway from Orange County. The entire wedding was decorated by Amy’s family including their wedding party. They were inspired by blogs and Pinterest. The overall wedding was intimate and emotional since the majority of guests were family and close relatives. It wasn’t our typical wedding since there was no first dance, or father and mother dance. A mostly open mic allowed all the important people in their lives to share their love and gratitude. They ended their wedding with a bubble exit and flew off to Bora Bora.
