Our Wedding

Our wedding was fantastic! Most of our vendors were the reason why it was so great. For most of the year Rancho Palos Verdes has foggy, beach weather. We happened to pick the hottest weekend in history for not only LA, but RPV too. But by the time we started the reception the weather was perfect and the sunset view made up for the heat!

Wedding Mapper helped my out of town guests find a hotel or restaurant near by as well as map out the route from their hotel to our wedding. I highly recommend their site.

Fantastic! The food was amazing (or so I was told, as I barely ate more than a few bites in between photos). All of our guests raved about the food. The menu items were so original, not your typical chicken, beef or veggie plate. We had fresh pasta, 3 or 4 different kinds of salad, carving station with the most tender beef (this was the only thing I ate) and all the accoutrements one could think of - grilled onions, bleu cheese, grain mustard, horserasdish, and so on. Truly fantastic! Oh yes, the catering staff was also very nice, friendly, and helpful.

Wedding Day Beauty

She was great! Price was well with in our budget and I could not have been happier with my make-up and hair that day. Plus, she brought an iPod with music that she made sure I liked (she asked me during the consult). Love Katie!

Miller Hawkins

Coordinators/Planners

All I have to say is this - hiring Miller Hawkins was THE best decision we made and money well spent! I love Inger Miller and owe her a HUGE thank you for saving our wedding and my sanity during the planning process and on the day of the wedding!

Jewelry/Accessories

Hannah makes the most beautiful jewelry. The best part about her creations is they can be worn after the wedding. She added elements of my bridesmaids' dress colors and other colors of my wedding to the pieces, but they were subtle enough that they didn't take away from the dresses. Her work is really a piece of art.

We had the BEST time working with Adi! We have not yet seen the photos (as it has only been a month since the wedding), but we know they will be fabulous! Adi does a great job of making sure you have fun and enjoy the process of taking ALL those photos.

Terranea Hotel
Rancho Palos Verdes, California
Hotels/Accommodations

We stayed at the Terranea the night before the wedding - bridal party only and on our wedding night - bride and groom. It is a nice hotel. They just opened, so there are a few kinks to iron out, but over all it is a very nice, luxurious hotel right on the cliffs with a great view of Catalina and the Pacific Ocean.
