I just viewed the blog of and just had to post them. The photographers are such an intricate part of the wedding and finding just the right one is essential.
Megan and Micah are just that!
Rachel and Damian were able to just be themselves and we had the awesome opportunity to witness it!
Here, Micah and Megan took advantage of the Jones Estate's grounds and angles and had a blast! I love the end of the evening shot! Now that's a great picture!

I enjoyed all the planning and tasting and chosing with you two! Much love and
Great job!!

Jennifer and David with Purple and the Jones Victorian Estate


Here are just a few of the photos that Brian at Suite-M Studios just posted for our wedding on June 12th with Jennifer and David.
I love the way he pulled color from the background to enhance the purple in her bouquet and his boutonniere. It is truly striking!!
Our road is one of my favorite shots. Brian captured it with elegance.

Their first dance was a combination of their traditional dance and a tribute to Michael Jackson!! Here they are with hats and white socks! Well Done!! Everyone loved it! It was a spectacular day!
The flowers were by the ever talented Flower Allie of Fullerton!
Thank you for such a wonderful day!!! Great Team Work!!

A Charming Day at the Jones Victorian


When creating the look for her wedding, Lauren liked contrasts, sparkles and sheen. More sparkle and jewels please on May 22nd!

She first found four tall metal vases and painted them gold. She also liked pearls, glass, and teapots. We thought, "The more, the merrier!" The mixture of textures in the centerpiece designs created a free-flowing display of sparkle and jewels.

For the arch, we brought out the sparkle by draping crystals and pearls over a light layer of natural greens and soft white orchids and million star.

Stay tuned for some pictures of Lauren and Ryan from their photographer.

Pleasing Purple Provided a Perfectly Profound Party at the Jones Victorian


Greeting guests and family, the rich purple pigment provided a perfectly profound party for Jenn and David on June 12th. We loved it!

They accented the plum purple with soft gold creating a duo of elegance that was both dramatic and exciting!

The Arch: The arch was completely covered with a variety of popping hues of purple flowers. To add to the union, a potted tree signified their new life together. The tree will grow with their love and marriage. Last but certainly not least, both of their mothers carried a vase filled with water for the ceremony. It was truly lovely!

Their table numbers displayed their fun, loving personality! Each table number was paired with a playful picture and table number. I enjoyed all the pictures because each table was so different and creative!

The Cake: This three tiered delight was topped with perfectly paired wooden carved Bride and Groom's depicting their Korean and Chinese heritage. We surrounded them with flowers and wow! They perched on top of the cake beautifully! They purchased these from where the designer created each piece with authenticity!


Well done Jenn and David!! I loved your creativity! I wish you the very best in your life together!

Stawberry Cream theme at the Jones Victorian Estate


I ask you, who doesn't just love Strawberries and Cream? It brings back memories of the carefree, warm, summer days enjoying the fresh picked taste of a bowl of cold strawberries or strawberry short cake!

Kristen and Jason remembered those days too! With the help of her family, Kristen made fresh
strawberry jam for each guest. We displayed her homemade treats on different levels with our crystal cake stands and
topped it off with her sign: "Spread the Love." Now that is a yummy gift favor that everyone can enjoy!

She carried the strawberry-short cake theme with flowers for her Bridesmaids, arch and centerpieces too! The white peonies were accented with deliciously, colored strawberry and cream roses. They looked good enough to eat!
They were married under a trellis with ribbons and flowers blowing in the breeze.

Who needs a photo booth when you can have Bride and Groom Cardboard Cut-outs!! It was a fantastic idea! For a creative guest book idea, both of their sisters took Polaroid pictures of all the guests with the Bride and Groom. The pictures were amazingly funny and endearing as each guest had their own unique way
of posing with each cardboard character. I had to take a picture too because they were so cute! Later in the evening, the cardboard Bride and Groom
were seen dancing and celebrating with all the guests.

The dessert was the finishing touch to a lovely afternoon! They decided on the Croquembouche, a chocolate topped tower of cream puffs, instead of a cake and it was a perfect choice. Each guest had their choice of puffs, one or two; chocolate mousse filled or sweet cream cheese, but they were all served with a strawberry sauced heart!
Strawberries never looked and tasted so good!

It was a great day!!! Thank you Kristen and Jason!

Thank you for sharing our special day with us.. at the Jones Victorian Estate!!!


Rachel and Damian were married on May 22nd, a bright and sunny May day!
Their guests were greeted by a hand, painted sign of "Thank you for sharing our special day with us!" It was a perfect greeting and set the stage for wonderful wedding to come.
The theme of their wedding was just like the two of them; elegant, lovely and so kind.

Butterflies were added to their chair decorations, wreaths and arch for a lighthearted charm.
Flowers accented by ivory organza draped on the arch, created soft romantic backdrop for their ceremony. They had hugging, porcelain, love birds for their cake top that mirrored their love for each other. Our shinning, silver tea pots created a whimsical, elegant look.
With soft, ice pink roses and daillas, white peonies, tulips and ranucullas and bright, green verbena and vining ivy, the tea pots glowed with a fun, grace and elegance she hoped for.
We stacked one tea pot inside another to create a taller centerpiece with pzazz. Both tea pots poured delicate flowers and ivy out of their spouts. Having the two pots balanced delicately with vining flowers created a whimsical touch that kept the event from becoming to stuffy.
Smaller silver pieces of silver such as sugar bowls and creamers of varies sizes were filled full with delicate flowers just adding to the shining look. I LOVE our teapots!!!
It was a wonderful day!
Thank you for allowing us to share in your day. I miss you two already!
