{ Day 3: The Wedding Day }

The wedding day was a success! Incredibly exhausting, but gorgeous! The ceremony and formal dinner reception were held at the Montage Resort & Spa in Laguna Beach. If you've never been, you're really missing out. It's located in one of the most beautiful coves in Southern California. Again, sorry for the crummy iPhone pics. They hardly do the beauty of the day justice. I'll post some "real" pics as soon as I have access to my parent's camera.

So, funny story about these altar pieces. Well, it's funny now, but it was a florists' worst nightmare come true! See the white table cloth? Yah, those weren't suppose to be there. Minutes before the ceremony was to begin, the huge glass cylinders that was supposed to be used as the base, suddenly shattered! Can you imagine our horror? With some quick thinking, we took the white buckets we had brought some extra flowers in, turned them upside down, borrowed some table cloths from the hotel and ta-da! Funny, right?

The centerpieces were my favorite part of the wedding. Hannah and I used 3 silver julep cups in descending size for the center of the dining tables. I love how elegant they look. And believe me, this picture doesn't do them justice. They were absolutely stunning in person. I hope my "real" pictures show off the detail in the arrangements. Stay tuned for those...
