Last weekend my husband Ari and I celebrated our one-year anniversary, and I am so amazed at how quickly twelve months has flown by! This last year has been a whirlwind of travel, quality time spent with family and good friends, and professional milestones as we have grown Ooh La Love. With such a busy year, I haven’t found the time to frame any images from our wedding, or even share the full album with our family. Sorry guys! This is actually a bad habit of mine, and I think I have officially been banned in my friend group from ever using my camera, for fear that the photo will never be seen again. Luckily my sweet husband knows this about me, and as a gift had some of my favorite images framed, to honor the tradition of a paper gift for the first year of marriage. Both our photographer Jen Simon and videographer ElmanAdam did such a wonderful job of capturing the love and emotion of our wedding day, and I am so excited to finally share! Hope you Enjoy!
Ari and I were so blessed to have family and friends fly in from all over the world for our big day. Guests came from near and far, traveling locally from Orange County (where I grew up), the east coast, all the way to Iceland (where he is from), so we wanted to make sure that they really enjoyed themselves. We both felt that our wedding should not just be a celebration of our love for each other, but also the joining of our friends and family.
My family pitched in with all our DIY projects, working on everything from creating the escort card holders from oversized vintage frames, to hand stamping handkerchiefs for the ceremony, and much more.
When it came to the design I had about a million ideas, and Jesenia helped me so much in organizing my thoughts to focus in on a natural and romantic vibe, with lots of greenery, candlelight and pops of bordeaux.
To keep our guests happy and comfortable we paid extra attention to the small details, and live music kept everyone on the dance floor all night.
