From Intertwined Events… Krissi and Clark’s wedding was one to remember. The couple’s Rancho Las Lomas wedding had the perfect combination of outdoor beauty and glam. Krissi was dressed in gorgeous Jimmy Choo’s and Clark’s grandmother’s fur coat, while Clark dazzled in Tom Ford and Ferragamo. From a gorgeous beaded dress to a sequined sweetheart table, their wedding had elegant touches everywhere.

Before the ceremony, the gentlemen of the bridal party prayed together and spoke kind words towards the soon-to-be newlywed couple. Their pastor, who was part of Clark’s life from when he was younger, personalized the entire ceremony. They also wrote their own very unique and personalized vows, which they repeated to one another. It was such a sweet and touching ceremony. The one thing that everyone will remember is their heartfelt letters to their parents. They each wrote letters, which were read out loud, to their parents, as well as each other’s parents; when Krissi thanked Clark’s mom for raising the man of her dreams, it’s safe to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd.

The reception was nothing short of an epic celebration and dance party! Clark is a DJ so house music was incorporated throughout the entire day, from his song down the aisle to the dance session at the reception. The newlyweds walked in for their Grand Entrance with Spirit Animals on, while guests, who were supplied with customized glow sticks, raised their arms and danced the night away.

To ensure the champagne would keep flowing, escort cards were acrylic stir sticks that were designed by Krissi’s brother. Krissi collected mercury glass containers for over a year to get enough for all the tables! They were almost 100 pieces collected in total to be sure that there would be enough to allocate an appropriate amount of sparkle and shine to the reception tables. And not to be missed, the custom cigar bar and lounge area by the fireplace allowed people to momentarily rest their feet between dance sets…you couldn’t keep them off the floor for long!

Jo-ann and John’s celebration of love was made possible by the Southern California chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding, the world’s first nonprofit wish granting organization providing weddings and vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness and serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. The organization grants wishes in all 50 states. To apply for a wish or find out how you can help, click here.

Description from the Platinum Weddings By KerrieJo-ann and John fell in love and were married in a city hall ceremony almost 20 years ago, however, it wasn’t until this past fall that the happy and still incredibly devoted couple celebrated their dream wedding. After being recently diagnosed with Stage IV Bi-lateral Breast Cancer, Jo-ann said, “It would be such a miracle if we could experience such a positive occasion during this very difficult time.” This brave, kind-hearted and deserving wife and mother’s dream came true thanks to Wish Upon a Wedding, a national charity that grants wishes for couples facing terminal illness, and a talented team of generous wedding professionals.

Jo-ann’s biggest wish was to make this special day a celebration of love and family, so she was given a romantic and graceful occasion that would always be remembered. While Jo-ann had her own tastes, her vision came to life thanks to the assistance of many accomplished and giving vendors.

The couple’s celebration of love and family took place on a beautiful California day at the unique Rancho Las Lomas, a historic Spanish ranch and zoological garden. Jo-ann and John’s gorgeous day was not only filled with their supportive and loving friends, but it was filled with an array of romantic and delicate details as well. To accentuate their ‘celebration of love’ theme, romantic stationery, classically charming floral arrangements and soft blush and champagne tones were incorporated throughout the ceremony and reception.

For Jo-ann, it was important to have her two young daughters play a special part in the wedding. With no traditional bridesmaids, the couple’s daughters made up the bridal party and joined their parents at the altar. Towards the end of the ceremony, Jo-ann and John shared a touching moment; Shortly after they kissed, the couple stood forehead-to-forehead at the altar for about five minutes while their loving daughters and beaming guests happily watched.

After the couple’s beautiful ceremony, guests joined them for a spirited and lovely reception. To give the reception a romantic feel, a lounge area with an eclectic array of vintage furniture in natural color tones was created. Upon seeing the seating area, Jo-ann could barely contain just how surprised and truly thrilled she was!

One request Jo-ann had was to include a wishing tree as their guestbook. Family and friends wrote and hung personal notes and words of advice on a whimsical wishing tree. Guests also had an absolute blast taking photos in a fun, interactive photo booth.

While the day remained exceptionally happy, some tears were shed before the night was over. John’s father’s heartfelt toast to the couple was a moving addition to the couple’s celebration of love.

From Sweet Emilia JaneJune and Daniel were dream clients from the very beginning. They are just the kindest, sweetest people you will ever meet with their hearts in the right place.

For their wedding they chose the spectacular Rancho Las Lomas so I knew we were going to have a lot of fun creating something magical and romantic. The ranch really speaks for itself and there isn’t much that needs to be done except let it’s natural beauty shine. June is a classic beauty and her style is elegant with a little bit of a bohemian flair. Through whimsical flower arrangements and little personal touches we were able to create a dreamy, nature-inspired look with a touch of bohemian that echoed June’s style. And who else to help bring the boho but PowWow Vintage Rentals. The unique pieces that Melissa brought in for the succulent favors, family photos and lounge area really brought it all together. June loved the chevron pattern for runners but runners didn’t really work for round tables so we had the fantastic Borrowed Blu make 200 chevron napkins for us! Paired with PowWow’s vintage goblets in blues and greens the tables just popped with color.

We had created the design concept for June and Daniel but they crafted all the details themselves and did such an amazing job. I loved the handmade wood signs with vintage arrows, the sweet ribbon arch and lace-wrapped succulent pots.The night ended with an epic dance party and fun Smilebooth photos!
