From Revel Wedding Company… Chelsea and Randy are one of the most loving and generous couples and it was their dream to have a small destination wedding surrounded by their closest loved ones. For them, this was more than just a wedding between a bride and a groom – it was a chance to officially blend their combined five children and lives together in this exciting new chapter.
Living in Southern Illinois, the couple knew they wanted to travel somewhere amazing yet accessible for their closest friends and family members to join in their wedding day. Always ones for the beach, they knew Descanso Beach Club on Catalina Island would be the ultimate wedding destination for them! With a beach-front ceremony location and a reception dinner space with killer views they knew that this was the location for their dream wedding.
To make that dream a reality, the couple chose amazing and creative wedding vendors like Elyse Hall Photography, Isari Flower Studio, Revel Wedding Company and Celebrations in Paper. The wedding design was taken straight from the Frank Lloyd Wright and Art Deco architecture that is so beautiful and prominent in Avalon. All of that history combined with the stunning natural surroundings created the ultimate backdrop for this memorable day!

From the Bride… When we visited Rancho Las Lomas we immediately fell in love with how gorgeous it is, with the Spanish style architecture surrounded by lush botanical gardens. One of our favorite things about the property is that it is also a wildlife foundation that is home to some unique animals, including a white tiger! The venue has so many little details that make it a beautiful and exciting place to explore and we knew that it was the perfect setting for our wedding.
After deciding to have our wedding at Rancho Las Lomas started on the details that would make our wedding special. When trying to decide on colors, I wanted to make sure that they harmonized well with the colors of the venue. Around Rancho Las Lomas there are beautiful painted tiles, lampposts, and cobblestones that inspired me to choose a dusty blue and blush pink color scheme. I wanted the flowers to be whimsical and romantic so I asked my florist to have things like berries and thistle mixed in for added color and texture.
When I was looking for a photographer, I had a certain style in mind, and when I found Christina from Hello Blue Photo I knew that she was the right choice. The way that Christina uses the natural light creates a soft and romantic look that I wanted for our wedding photos. She also uses both digital and film photography to beautifully capture her images. Looking back, one of the best things that happened on our big day was that we were able to stay relaxed and enjoy our time together because of Christina’s warm and friendly demeanor. Picking Christina as our photographer was definitely one of the best choices that we made!

Peter proposed to Yi in Maui on the Road to Hana, and decided to have their wedding at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa. They were inspired by the colors purple and gold, and wanted to have a pineapple theme at the wedding, as shown with their fabulous centerpieces.
