mari & dave were married at the gorgeous ritz carlton in laguna niguel. mari was determined from the beginning to fill the wedding with purple, silver and tons of bling......from the hanging crystals to the silver chargers, this idea was carried through the entire event. we settled on the ritz overlooking the pacific, and what a view it provided! i have to admit that i was **very** nervous on the wedding day that all of our plans and carefully laid out ideas for flowers would need to be altered. as i left the house that morning from san diego, rain was literally pouring in sheets ~ we could barely see out of the windows!! as we made our way further up the coast, though, the clouds literally parted, and we were left with one of the most beautiful fall days ever~ perfectly sunny and bright! we had such a fun crew of vendors~ tim otto provided the beautiful images, and he is such a blast to work with :) spencer bezy provided the music, and he kept the energy high all night. russell fowler documented the day with his awesome videography skills, and the staff at the ritz were generous and extremely helpful. tess provided the most beautiful and abundant flowers for mari~ she was thrilled with the final result! congratulations dave and mari~ we wish you the very best!!
