THE PUBLISHER'S LETTER

When we created and introduced the inaugural edition of Ceremony Magazine 13 years ago, we did so with two mantras in mind: weddings are visual, so photography is key; and collaborate with the highest quality vendors and the magazine will follow suit.

Those principles still reign true today. Ceremony Magazine has always been big on pictures and short on words, and it seems social media is emulating the same. With the likes of Pinterest and Instagram becoming the go-to social media sites, the whole world can now communicate in a language that has no barriers: pictures. Now more than ever, it’s the perfect complementary platform to view the best-of-the-best of Ceremony’s thousands of timeless inspirational wedding and photo shoot images. We hope you will follow us and find inspiration for your own wedding.

While we revel in the limitless amount of ideas we can digitally find, we know that the most beautiful image is no substitute for finding quality vendors who can execute your vision. That is why we indulge in the pure Wedding IngenuityTM from Ceremony’s own family of wedding professionals that are right here in Orange County. This Great List of wedding vendors contains not only many of the best in Orange County, but also some of the finest in the country. It is their work that makes up a large part of this magazine, including 58 real weddings in this issue alone. Throughout the entire magazine, their web addresses are listed alongside their work as a helpful tool when you are flipping through Ceremony Magazine online. We are excited for what we know you are about to experience: meeting, collaborating with and perhaps even befriending some of the most creatively talented people you will ever know.

As you travel along your wedding planning journey, preparing for life’s wondrous path of marriage and love, we encourage

Congratulations! Amy Harrick Publisher & Editor-in-Chief aharrick@ceremonymagazine.com

MICHAEL PURDY PHOTOGRAPHY

CHLOE ATNIP PHOTOGRAPHY

Capturing the chemistry and love of every couple we photograph with a modern, elegant and impactful style is what we do. Our easygoing, unobtrusive approach makes the experience fun, allowing everyone to relax and have a great time. Weddings are about love, beauty and celebration. We photograph every cherished moment, and later work with our couples to create a beautiful wedding album that will be treasured for generations. Our devotion to detail and personal customer service limits the number of weddings we photograph each year. We feel honored to be a part of one of the most important days in a couple’s life.

Mike’s style is most appreciated by the bride that wants artwork; not just snapshots. It all begins with a well-planned highfashion engagement shoot. Mike works with his clients to develop their custom style by using color swatches, mood boards and themes. The day of the wedding is well planned and his team knows when to lead the client and when to step back and capture oncein-a-lifetime moments. Whether the client is stiff or a natural with posing, Mike knows how to create an atmosphere that is fun and enjoyable so his clients feel relaxed and stay “in the moment” throughout the day. His company services all of Southern California and also specializes in destination weddings around the globe.

Chloe Atnip has 10 years of experience photographing weddings, beauty, and boudoir. She started her career on the other side of the camera, modeling, and transitioned to photography while attending college at CSULB. The opportunity to help enrich people’s lives through photography brings her great passion and joy. Chloe’s diverse style captures beautiful photos that showcase the true essence of her subjects. She has found success by creating lasting relationships providing high quality photos and customer service while exceeding client expectations.

LEAH MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY

COTTON LOVE STUDIOS

VISUALS BY ARPIT

Leah and I (Marcella) are lucky enough to live in Temecula, CA, and are surrounded by beautiful vineyards and lots of wineries. We met through our husbands quite a few years ago and quickly became friends. It was our love for photography and our passion for people, Starbucks and not-so-reality TV that made our business partnership inevitable. Our #1 priority is and always has been our couples. We believe that every couple should feel amazing — even if they are a little shy or don’t like taking pictures. Our desire is for you to look back on your wedding day portraits and be able to relive all of the amazing moments, because at the end of all of the planning and preparation, all you have are your photographs.

We're a Los Angeles based studio that loves to tell stories! Cotton Love Studios is home to a team of creatives who work with both cinematography and photography, and we thrive off the inspiration we get from working with both mediums. We love working with people, and for us, there's nothing more awesome than telling stories through the unique emotions and personalities that our clients have. Documenting real and genuine stories with our cameras is what we do best. Our local coverage area includes Los Angeles and Orange County. We regularly travel to San Francisco, Napa, and San Diego. Please feel free to inquire about destination weddings because we love to travel!

Arpit was born and raised in Mumbai, India. Growing up, he had the opportunity to travel around the country, as well as parts of Southeast Asia, Australia, and the U.S. (where he would eventually relocate to in 1998). In the eighth grade, when his science class took a field trip to hear from scientists returning from Antarctica, Arpit found himself fascinated by a singular image: the aurora australis. Little did he know that nearly a decade later, he would find a passion for photography and pursue it as a career. In 2008, Arpit began photographing weddings as an assistant to a local photographer. By the end of the following year, he had already traveled as far as Singapore to shoot his second destination wedding. Over the years, he has developed and honed his own unique style of photography, a poetic balance between photojournalism and cinematic portraiture. He takes an artisanal approach to his work, capturing the most beautiful dance between the couple, the space they occupy, and the light that showers them.

DPARK PHOTOGRAPHY

CHRISTOPHER TODD STUDIOS

Jessica Elizabeth is a full-service wedding photography and cinematography studio founded in 2008 by husband and wife duo, Jessica & Robert. Today the studio has grown to include a team of talented photographers and cinematographers who are passionate about our work and the clients that we serve. At our core, we are storytellers. Our photographic and cinematic philosophy balances contemporary with traditional, where fashion, fine art, photojournalism, and vintage appeal come together in perfect harmony.

I am the girl who has dreamt of her wedding day since she was 10 years old —maybe even younger. I remember countless occasions sitting on the floor in my best friend’s room drawing our wedding dresses and talking about our future husbands. I love what I do. I am living my dream career and every moment of it makes me feel fulfilled. I know I am truly fortunate in that respect. I really enjoy getting to know my clients on a personal level and building friendships with them all if I can. My business is built around my hopes, dreams, and loves of my life. My mother and my sister both work with me along with some of my very dear friends and I am so proud of that! I am a daughter, sister, aunt, girlfriend, and friend - and I love each of those roles even more than I love my career. I just happen to be fortunate enough that I can combine them all together.

We’re David and Drexelle. And we’re complete opposites. God amazingly brought us together, two kids scared of marriage and now passionate about a lifetime committed to love – the good, the bad, the crazy, the lovely. We don’t just capture the moment. We create it. Even more important to us than beautiful photographs, is an amazing experience. Our passion? Inspire love. MEET DAVID: To see people, the world, life differently. Creatively. That’s what I’m about. That’s why I chose photography. I worked passionately to give my wife a great love story. I will work passionately to capture yours. Drexelle once told me: “Time just flies, doesn’t it?!” But that’s why I love photography. Not because time flies. But because we capture moments in time.

Christopher approaches his work as a storyteller with you as the main character. His images capture unrepeatable moments to reveal stories of love, commitment, fun and laughter. His contemporary style and creative knowledge elevates photography to art. Clients love Christopher for putting them at ease and making photographs that show their personality, chemistry and love for one another. Christopher believes an heirloom wedding album begins long before a photo is taken. Christopher works to understand your story and capture every detail. His craftsmanship and expertise is based on over 15 years of experience photographing hundreds of weddings throughout Los Angeles, Orange County and destinations worldwide.

Sadi is a hopeless romantic at heart, and that romance has blossomed into a love affair with photography. You can feel in her images the emotion of every moment captured. Her focus throughout the day is to document every last detail, combining both posed and candid moments for a complete memento of the day. Brides and grooms are always taken aback at the feelings captured in her still imagery. She maintains a specialized company geared towards providing high end whimsical wedding photography and videography. The Whimsie team has been praised time and again for their customer service, professionalism and high end wedding products. The passion behind the photographs stands out above others and brings the wedding day to life. WHIMSIEPHOTO.COM 909.567.6267

INVITATION INDULGENCE Introduce your guests to your wedding by using an invite that fancies both visually and tactilely with sparkling gems, textured paper, beautiful ribbon or the always stylish letterpress. Intermix graphics and fonts then tie it all up in a slim delivery box or an elegant envelope. It’s an impression that will leave your guests wondering what other excitement awaits on the big day.

THE PERFECT ONE

how do you know?

How do you know…he’s the one? You may have been asked this question by your parents, your friends, even yourself. The answer isn’t always perfectly clear; he may or may not be ‘ideal’ on paper; you may have known him for only two months or perhaps you’ve been hanging in there a good five years; he may be a cowboy while you were visualizing a business man. The so-called ‘signs’ aren’t always there, but somehow, you just know. At Ceremony, we feel the same way about our Great List of wedding professionals that we recommend and invite to join our family of advertising partners. We take this vendor collective very seriously, which is why we don’t put arbitrary consideration requirements in an antiquated form. We don’t have a scholastic checklist to help us come up with an ‘A’ grade. We don’t even have a job application type form to fill out. You see, when it comes to choosing our Great List of recommended professionals, we believe there is no specific formula for choosing who we invite to join our family. Probably not unlike you, we take a look-see at Facebook, we inquire with their friends and colleagues and, most importantly, we get to know them by social networking the old-fashioned way (in person). In the end, we go with our gut. We just…know. You will find that some of these recommended vendors have refined their businesses over the past twenty years, while others bring fresh ideas after having recently started their own businesses. Many of our recommended venues are on the AAA Five-Diamond Resort list; others include charming private estates and everything in between. Additionally, the esteemed planners on the following pages each approach weddings in their own unique way, and we have interviewed each of them in order to give you an up close and personal look at their backgrounds, their ideas, and their wedding ingenuity. We hope that you will find this varied Great List vendor collective to be helpful in finding your wedding day professionals. There is no single vendor that is perfect for everyone, but there are vendors that are perfect for you. And when you meet them, you will just know.

Whatever you choose, keep these tips in mind: #1: Discuss it with your officiant. #2: Work out the details. Will you write them together? Is it a secret? #3: Practice!

Luckily for fashionable brides, wedding dresses are now among the hottest runway trends. The “rules” for brides have shifted. Modern brides have a myriad of color and design options. The #1 rule: Let the importance focus on the bride’s personal style and taste. Choose the gown, the headpiece, the hairstyle that makes you feel like a beautiful bride!

It’s all about ambiance. Every couple wants to create a more romantic and intimate environment. Wedding lighting is the best, and simplest, way to establish both. Consider using more pendant lights with bare strands of bulbs, chandeliers, both vintage and modern, and candelabras to cast a soft glow.

BEVERAGE The typical champagne toast isn’t happening as it has in the past; some couples don’t even have alcohol at their weddings and serve mocktails instead. Some couples even choose to toast with whatever beverage is in front of them. This not only saves money, but the champagne doesn’t go to waste, as not everyone is a champagne drinker.

BOUTIQUE EVENT PLANNING Melissa Rizk is married to her best friend and forever Laker date. She has three beautiful boys that push her on a daily basis. She's from Florida, but has made Orange County her home for the last 20 years. Melissa originally began her career in the hospitality business, and then transitioned into a corporate position creating launch events for seven years. After planning her own wedding, and having a trying experience with the wedding coordinator that came with the hotel package, she knew this was what she wanted to do forever! Melissa started offering her services at no charge to any friend that would listen. Next thing she knew, two years later she was so busy that she was closing her books for the following year. Call it luck? No, just a lot of hard work and balance. It has been an amazing five years, and being able to mentor women just like her is one of most rewarding parts of Melissa's career. The Boutique Event Planning team loves what they do, and they know how important this day is for any of their clients.

SWEET SPOT AN INTERVIEW WITH 24 CARROTS CATERING

PHOTOGRAPHY: SANAZ PHOTOGRAPHY; MIKE VILLA; HEARTS HAVEN; LORELY MEZA; ASHLEY KELEMEN

24CARROTS.COM

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT HOW YOUR COMPANY GOT STARTED AND WHAT THE FUTURE BRINGS: In 2004, chef-owner Norm Bennett channeled his passion for culinary excellence and experience in both European and American kitchens into 24 carrots catering and events, where his elevated standards made the perfect foundation for success. His background is heavily infused into event menus, where fresh ingredients and memorable cuisine is top priority, and many of his secret recipes are long standing client favorites. Over the years, 24 carrots has built a stellar reputation based on our honest approach to business and unwavering commitment to excellence. We refuse to compromise on quality and our friendly, team-driven culture complements our award-winning food. We’re proud to have earned both the respect of our peers and the continued business of our loyal customers. Even as we’ve grown into an award-winning industry leader, 24 carrots has stayed true to our values as a familyowned business. Everything we do centers around our passion for bringing people together and creating unforgettable memories. We treat everyone like family, because for us, it’s all about personal connections. The friendly people on our team are genuinely interested in getting to know you and building friendships that continue long after your event is over. OUR SPECIALTY IS: We pride ourselves in being accessible to our clients. We’re not a big conglomerate that churns out cookie-cutter parties with no regard for your wishes and desires. And we’re not a small momand-pop shop that lacks the resources to ensure your event runs smoothly. 24 carrots is right in the middle – the sweet spot that provides you with the utmost personal attention and unlimited possibilities for your one-of-a-kind occasion.

120

OUR FOOD PHILOSOPHY: To create and inspire. It is the mission of 24 carrots to create remarkable experiences throughout Southern California by offering the finest quality foods and providing unsurpassed personalized service, driven by our passion for life’s special occasions. FAVORITE COCKTAIL HOUR APPETIZERS: With over 100 hors d’oeuvres gracing our menu, this is where our chefs get to play and our clients love getting to infuse their personal style and setting the tone for their wedding day! Some of our long-standing favorites are classic go-tos, such as our stuffed artichoke hearts (with manchego, sun-dried tomato, balsamic, and meyer lemon) or our baklava chicken lollipops (with honey, pesto, and pistachio). But some of our playful items like the ahi taco or a coconut grilled cheese (with lime-poached jalapeno) add some personality and a ton of flavor to each celebration! THREE TRENDY INGREDIENTS FOR 2017: Poke. Squash blossom. Hatch chile. HOW CAN COUPLES USE FOOD TO WOW THEIR GUESTS AND MAKE THEM FEEL SPECIAL? Meals are not just meant to be eaten. They are meant to be experienced and shared. With flawless service and picture-perfect cuisine, we cater to make your memories unforgettable. Because we can picture perfect. WHAT IS YOUR SINGLE BIGGEST CROWD-PLEASING WEDDING MENU ITEM? A perfectly prepared filet mignon will never go out of style. This time-honored classic is synonymous with elegance and luxury, no matter what the wedding trends may be.

HOMEMADE HAPPINESS AN INTERVIEW WITH JAY'S CATERING

IMAGES COURTESY OF JAY'S CATERING

JAYSCATERING.COM

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT HOW YOUR COMPANY GOT STARTED AND WHAT THE FUTURE BRINGS: As we approach our 50th anniversary, we are still driven by the same principal: Fresh food, always from scratch. Armand ‘Jay’ Mastroianni and Eleanor Mastroianni started Jay’s Catering as a one-stop-shop for milk and sandwiches, and it quickly grew into a full-service catering company. 50 years later, we are still a family owned and operated business. The future for Jay’s will be continued growth not just of our catering business, but also our café, Ellie’s Table. ON-TREND FOOD IDEAS FOR 2017 WEDDINGS: A return to our roots. Chefs are starting to take a trip down memory lane to recreate and bring new life to their childhood favorites. A mix of nostalgia and creativity has been responsible for some of our newest menu items! OUR FOOD PHILOSOPHY: ‘Happiness is Homemade.’ This is not only the slogan of our bakery and café, Ellie’s Table, but also a concept we live by here at Jay’s. THE PAST DECADE TOOK US FROM THE CAKE TO CUPCAKES TO DONUTS TO CAKE POPS TO MACARONS TO DESSERT TABLES…WHAT’S NEXT FOR DESSERTS? A unique dessert that no one has ever seen. For us, that means our award-winning crème brulee kouign amann. Layers of flakey pastry dough filled with crème brulee and torched fresh in front of guests. We are also seeing a rise in the demand for ice cream. We look forward to finding new and exciting ways to offer ice cream on a catering scale in 2017!

122

WHAT IS THE BEST APPROACH TO SERVING FOOD FOR SPECIALTY DIETS? A lot of our couples feel that they have to alter their entire menu to cater to guests with specialty diets. A stations menu is the perfect solution! You can build in different options to fit any diet (gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, vegetarian, etc.). As opposed to giving everyone the same plate, this allows guests to pick and choose which stations allow them to indulge without compromising their diet! HOW CAN COUPLES USE FOOD TO WOW THEIR GUESTS AND MAKE THEM FEEL SPECIAL? Let them create something all their own! We love our make-yourown stations such as fresh poke, sliders, and street tacos. Letting them choose their own toppings gives them the feeling of creating their own custom menu. This goes for the bar as well; we love our craft cocktail bar where guests can mix up their very own creation! WHAT IS YOUR SINGLE BIGGEST CROWD-PLEASING WEDDING MENU ITEM? We have to say our mini filet and wild mushroom wellington with béarnaise sauce. It may be an old classic, but a tray never comes back full! THE BEST DAY EVER INCLUDES: Family & friends, delicious food that showcases the couple’s personalities, and a unique dessert to end the night! THREE TRENDY INGREDIENTS FOR 2017: Seaweed, faro and preserved lemon.

PRETTY PREP for your boudoir photo shoot PHOTOGRAPHY AND INSIGHT BY JENNY TAYLOR BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY JENNYTAYLORBOUDOIRS.COM

A wedding day gift for her groom is one to-do item almost every bride-to-be agonizes over. For those who want to surprise their partner with something extra special, and a little bit sexy, a boudoir photo shoot is the perfect present. Jenny Taylor, owner of Jenny Taylor Boudoir Photography, a popular photography company with studios in Chicago and Los Angeles, has compiled a list of do’s and don’ts for any bride-to-be considering a boudoir photo shoot: DO take the time to do your research. It’s important to find a photographer that not only has a solid reputation, but with whom you feel comfortable. Before booking your session, read through testimonials and online reviews of clients they’ve previously worked with. Ask to see examples of their work and schedule a phone call with them to get a concrete feel for their professionalism and personality, as well as if you feel comfortable in their setting; we don't recommend showing up to someone’s personal home or basement. DON’T spray tan. Tan skin actually counteracts the lighting used for boudoir photos, yielding a less-than-desirable look. Don’t use any self-tanning products at least five days before your shoot. DO steer clear of alcohol the day of your session. Having a few cocktails before you step in front of the camera might seem like a good idea, but don’t do it. Not only can alcohol make your belly bloat and your skin flush, but having it in your system will alter your entire experience. For these reasons, Jenny Taylor says: “We don’t allow any alcohol on set.” DON’T feel like you have to wear lingerie. “One of the biggest misconceptions about boudoir photography is that wearing super-sexy lingerie is a requirement,” says Taylor. While many of her clients do wear teddies, bra & panty sets or negligées, others opt for more playful looks, like a jersey from their guy’s favorite sports team, or even a gorgeous dress. DO put some thought into props. The addition of something simple and romantic like a red rose or bridal veil can make a big impact on camera. DO remember that this experience is as much for you as it is for your groom. Women spend lots of time (and, in some cases, big bucks) on amped-up fitness and beauty routines leading up to their nuptials. “Right before her wedding day is the perfect time for a bride to take a moment and celebrate herself with a boudoir photo shoot,” says Taylor. “Not only are most brides looking and feeling their best in the weeks leading up to their wedding, but the excitement and happiness they’re feeling during that time really shows through in photos.” DO remember to groom yourself pre-shoot. Any bikini or body waxing should be done a week ahead of time. A manicure and/or pedicure can be done the day before.

love story

A mutual friend introduced Sneha and Kabir, and that turned into an eventual first date. They went to a local restaurant and immediately hit off, finding they had a lot of common. From that moment on, they knew it was more than just a dinner date.

love note

The day Kabir proposed, they were having a pre-event photo shoot before their Gaur Dhana Pooja, which is the gathering of both families to solidify the marriage of a couple in Hindu culture. Sneha had no idea a formal proposal was coming that day, and she was surprised mid-shoot to find Kabir on one knee, holding a ring!

love story

Jake and Franki grew up living around the corner from each other, but their love story didn’t truly start until Jake’s grandparents adopted Franki’s family dog.

love note

After re-meeting each other, Franki and Jake went on their first date the next day. They took a last minute drive to Newport Beach at midnight, causing Jake to sleep only two hours before having to get up for his own sister’s wedding!

Deanna and Josh went out for lunch and were walking down by the beach when Deanna noticed a beautiful path of rose petals and candles, leading to a blanket with pillows and hints of turquoise, which was her favorite color. Totally oblivious, she thought to herself how some girl was really going to love that. All of a sudden, she realized Josh was on one knee and the display was for her!

love note

Deanna’s uncle officiated the wedding. The knowledge that he had about Josh and Deanna made the ceremony special to them and made them realize how fortunate they were to be surrounded by loving family and friends!

love story

Carlos and Paloma first met at a pub crawl, so Carlos decided to propose on the beach right outside the bar where their initial meeting had been. For the proposal, he wrote a note that said “Will you marry me?” followed by check mark boxes for “yes” and “no.” The note was given to Paloma as they stood in a heart of rose petals. Once Paloma said yes, they went to the bar to celebrate with friends and family that were waiting for them!

love note

Carlos and Paloma had a running joke where Paloma would ask, “How much do you love me?” On their wedding day, Carlos sent flowers to the bridal suite every hour with a note that said “How much?” on the front and a card, causing everyone in the room to tear up.

love story

Originally, Stefani wasn’t interested in Ryan and even told him to go date other girls. It had sounded good in her head, but it quickly backfired as she became jealous. They soon realized they were meant for each other, and after four years of dating, Ryan proposed on top of the Palos Verdes cliffs.

love note

Stefani’s grandmother worked as a baker her whole life, and she made their wedding cake and surprise groom’s cake! She also painted them a cake topper replica of themselves!

love story

As romantic as their proposal was, there was also some comedy involved. Mik had taken Liz out in downtown Disney for dinner when he pulled out a small black box. Of course though, right when he pulled the box out, the waiter made his way over for the drink order. After excusing himself, the waiter left them alone, and Mik proposed!

love note

Mik proposed to Liz on April Fool’s day, making her ask him if it was really a joke!

Eugene and Erika randomly met out one night, but they lost touch after time. It was truly fate as Erika noticed him from afar about a year and a half later and decided to make the move to talk to him. Ironically enough, Eugene had been trying to reach out by texting Erika’s number, but he had her old cell phone number so she wasn’t receiving them!

love note

Abraham owns racehorses and Melody shows horses. It was important for their wedding to show this interest of theirs, so the reception tables were named after the horses they own. They even placed pictures of the horses at each table!

Originally they had wanted to get married at a courthouse when Erica was eighteen, but they stuck it out patiently until they were done with school. Fatefully, their wedding date was their seven-year anniversary!

love story

Chris told Agnes that he would propose in front of his family per Vietnamese tradition. He told her this to throw her off, since there was no such tradition, and it worked! She was expecting to be proposed to at a family engagement party, so when it was an intimate proposal, she was surprised and thrilled!

love note

For their proposal, Chris gave Agnes a choice of four activities: horseback riding, a hot air balloon ride, a biplane ride, or go on a helicopter ride. She had no idea that when she picked hot air balloon ride, she was picking her proposal!

love story

Rico planned to propose to Linda in their bedroom by turning off all the lights and lighting one single candle. As she walked out of the bathroom, he realized too late that the room was too dark, and she ran right into him! Once they gathered their wits and had a good laugh, Rico was finally able to present the ring, and the rest was history.

love note

Linda is a chemistry professor and Rico is a chemical engineer, so it seemed fitting to have a science-related wedding. This science wedding consisted of drinks in beakers filled with dry ice served by servers in lab coats, tables named after chemicals associated with love and happiness, and “Love Potion Number 9” wedding favors. The groomsmens’ socks were even patterned with the periodic table on them!

love story

Carrie and Shawn had hand written notes and gifts for each other that they opened while getting ready. Shawn showered Carrie with gifts for their tropical honeymoon while Carrie gave Shawn collapsible Ray Bands with a note that said: “Our love is blinding.”

love note

Since both Shawn and Carrie are in the medical field, a cute rug was laid out that said, “The doctor is in the house,” showing the personality and humor that their wedding was full of!

love story

Shaun proposed to Marley in the same spot as their first date, right under the San Clemente Pier at sunset! He even included a photographer and a videographer to record the entire proposal, while all their friends waited just a little father down the beach at a bonfire!

love note

Marley and Shaun both enjoy beer so much that Marley’s father created a beer bar by hand for their wedding! It was the perfect addition to their special day.
