Linda and Edgar had a rainy and cold wedding week – even in Southern California -- but the sun came out for the ceremony and reception. “Everything was so magical,” Linda says. “We were so blessed. We could not ask for anything better!”
After meeting at work and falling in love quickly, Edgar and Linda dreamed of a rustic and elegant wedding – like a fairy tale. Their favorite memories include their first dance and “just seeing everyone enjoying themselves.” With a color scheme of dusty rose and different shades of pink – including Linda’s reception dress -- as well as wooden details and strings of lights, and lots of magical bubbles to celebrate this magical day, the couple made their vision come true. In a sweet, unique touch, their guests wrote their wishes for Linda and Edgar on small river stones as keepsakes. What a lovely day to celebrate love with family and friends!
For couples getting married soon, Linda advises, “Remember to give yourself time to take everything in, and have your photographers take pictures of everything!”
