WOW. shannon and eric's wedding was off the chain! seriously. all the ingredients to a perfect wedding were there and man oh man the final product was better than perfect!
awesome couple, check.
great location, check.
partylicious bridal party, check.
beautiful decor infused with personality and great details, check.
the dream team of vendors, check.
amazing coordinator, check. we've got to give a major shout out to the uber-fab stephanie lairson
for putting on what could be the white unicorn of weddings! if you're in the orange county or los angeles area and need a coordinator, stephanie is the hot ticket!
ok, buckle in, this is going to be a long one :)
shannon has one of those totally beautiful laughs and we got to see plenty of them on her wedding day!
...meanwhile over in guytown, plenty of laughs we going round too :)
shannon and eric decided to see each other before the ceremony so we could get the formal pictures out of the way which we absolutely love! here is shannon on the way down to meet eric...
...and thier reactions to each other couldn't have been better!
time for some portrait fun!
flower girl :)
oh ya, there was an awesome ceremony in the middle of all the other awesomeness too! here is shannon walking in with her father framed by eric and the best man.
the light for the ceremony was perfect, and shannon and eric were all smiles...perfect!
....a great post ceremony moment.
ok ok ok...we don't normally post detail shots cuz it's just not our thang but i gotta give major props to this idea! shannon and eric are huge 80's music fans, so for their table place cards they burned a mix
tape cd of some of their favs, then customized different album covers with their name on them. so then every table had a certain album and the cd became seat navigation device and the party favor! genius.
so of course we had to use a cd for the ring shot!
one of the many faces of the eric :)
attack of the bouquet.
the lighting and decor we top notch! check out this first dance action!
some slideshow reactions :)
toasting it up!
ok ok ok. after 100+ weddings it is pretty rare for us to see something that makes us get all tingly inside. did i mention shannon and eric love 80's music....well leave it to them to hire the most crazy cool band we've ever seen. the band was called 80Z enough
and they were more rad than the rubics cube! you've got to check out their youtube promo video
to catch of glimpse of the awesomeness.
these guys got the dance floor a hoppin!
mmmmm...there was a red cheese photobooth
and an open bar! like i said...all the ingredients for a perfect wedding :)
and one more kissy kissy shot to round it out.
shannon. eric. you guys rock. hard.
