A Southern California Wedding Weekend - Part 2


Staci and Wesley’s wedding was so beautiful. It was perfect for Staci, just how I would imagine her wedding to be. It had a beach theme, and there were touches throughout the decor that really showed Staci’s personality.

Staci has always LOVED Disneyland, so there were a lot of little Disney elements throughout the wedding, but it wasn't overdone. She walked down the aisle to a Disney song, and their engagement photos that were taken in Disneyland were on display as well. I loved this one of them on the teacups!

The venue was in Malibu, right on the water, with huge windows overlooking the ocean. During the ceremony, they kept the windows open so you could hear the waves crashing in the background. Wesley kept mouthing, “I love you” to Staci during the ceremony, it was so sweet. You could really see how happy and excited they both were.

It was so nice that the venue was the same for both the ceremony and the reception. They had taken the first look and other photos before the ceremony, so they just went down to the beach for a few minutes to get a some shots as the sun was setting.  They had a bar and appetizers so their guests were able to get a drink and visit while they were outside taking pictures. There was also a nice deck wrapping around the venue so we took some pictures outside with the sunset, and spied on Staci and Wesley taking their pictures down on the beach.








Once they announced the new couple, they had their first dance. I’ve truly never seen Staci happier, and I am just so excited for them! I know they’ll have a long and happy marriage.




After the first dance as a married couple, and father daughter dance, we were seated for dinner. Another Disney element was the table names. They were all named after Disney couples, we were seated at "Lady and the Tramp". The dinner was excellent; they served chicken, salmon, pasta, potatoes and salad. Everything was really good.




After dinner and the cake cutting, we hit the dance floor. It was SO much fun spending time with my college girlfriends. We hadn't all been together for quite a while, and it was just like old times. We kept requesting all the songs we’d listen to when we went out to the bars in college. At most times we were the only people on the dance floor, but we didn't care. We were in our own world!





It was a great wedding, and we all had a blast. I am so happy for Wesley and Staci. They make a really great couple and its so great to see Staci so happy. She was truly a glowing bride.



The weekend went by so fast. I can’t believe I’m back at work already. Even though it was a long drive for only a weekend away, I am so glad we got to spend so much time with our old college friends. Its fun to look back and see how far we've all come. I can’t believe it has already been 7 years since we graduated. I never would have guessed back then that Andrew and I would end up together. Things always have a way of working out, and I’m so glad it’s turned out this way.


Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Snyder!
