From the beautiful Bride… Since the age of 15, I have looked through wedding magazine after wedding magazine trying to imagine to what my perfect day would consist of. I have always dreamed about having a fairytale wedding. I wanted to have a wedding that was soft, classic, and romantic. I used several resources for inspiration such as pintrest, wedding magazines, and past wedding albums from previous weddings. I created a collage of colors, flowers, themes, and then present this to my wedding planner Kerri Hatter of LVL Event who then guided me in a direction that could fulfill this vision. I owe my gratitude to my wedding planner, and florist/designer Larrissa Rehder for carrying out my vision and dream of my perfect fairytale wedding. My favorite memories of the day were, the ceremony, walking down the aisle and seeing my husband for the first time! And the ambiance and decor topped off the evening, it was truly a dream come true.
The biggest piece of advice that I would offer to current brides is not to stress about the small things and to ASK FOR HELP! For me I wanted the day to go perfect and I felt I had to do everything on my own which resulted in a melt down! and The realization that I had a team and family members that I trusted and were there to help with the process and create the perfect day for me.

From Ashlee Raubach… Romantic, casual elegance, beautiful blooms, pastels, heart warming and sweet describes the wedding of Riley and Logan. Riley’s sister, Morgan Smith of the popular “Smith, Here!” lifestyle blog and of the reality show “MTV’s Laguna Beach” planned and coordinated her sister’s wedding. The theme was all about love blooming, family and friendships. Bistro lights strung across the patio of the OC Sailing Events Center nestled between the sailboats docked and the bay beach.
Gold vases, with peach, pink, and white flowers adorn tables with green leafy garlands and a moss “G” above the head table. Initials of the couple were created by Morgans husband Joel Smith. The light bulbs lit up softly in the background of the dance floor as the couple had their first dance. Family and friends also pitched in to create this beautiful, intimate celebration of love, marriage and happiness.
