This wedding in CA at the Catta Verdera Country Club was full of so many classy and timeless details! I loved every little bit of it! There is just something so timeless about the pairing of groom and groomsman dressed in black, the bridesmaids in olive green, the simple yet elegant signage, and the classic bouquet of flowers. The bride also wore a simple but elegant satin gown from Miosa with the classic Hollywood glam look! She absolutely rocked this look and was SO beautiful!
This wedding day was filled with so many special, intentional moments. From the first look with the bridesmaids, the exchange of gifts with the parents, to the private last dance with just the bride and groom! Courtney and Colin were not afraid to stay true to how they are as a couple. I really adored that, and I always love when weddings are authentic and true to who the couple is! They had cupcakes for dessert and took plenty of time for their portraits together. They also had a LIT dance floor and part with some glow-in-the-dark glowsticks which were so fun!
The private last dance was definitely one of my favorite parts of the day because it allowed Colin and Courtney to have some peace while guests prepared for the sparkler exit. It was such a sweet, quiet moment for just the two of them, plus their fav 3rd wheel, AKA me! 😉 On a typical wedding day, the couple doesn’t have much alone time, and because of this, I recommend all brides make this a priority in their timeline. Imagine looking back on your wedding photos and being flooded with sweet memories of your intimate last dance. Definitely a must have!
“Erika was such a pleasure to have around on our wedding day. She was organized, detail-oriented, and so creative with her posing. She also made sure we stayed on schedule which was very helpful and took a lot of stress out of our day! Our photos turned out breathtaking and I can’t wait to display them proudly in our home!”
