A Dazzling ‘Spring Bling’ Themed California Wedding

The language of love can be difficult for some, but if you speak the same dialect, communicating can be simple; Gwen used her knowledge of sports to catch Anthony’s attention when they first met. Eight years after they met, he popped the question while they celebrating his birthday, at first she thought he was just acting strange, checking his watch and not talking. Two minutes after his birthday officially started, he told her she deserved a gift for putting up with him and asked her to be his wife. Last year, they had a beautiful wedding in San Pedro, California, with a stunning spring bling theme; the bride had a bouquet of rich purple hues that matched the flowers adorning the hall. Their event planner, Elvira DeCuiralong with Cary Pennington Photography helped create and capture an amazing day the newlyweds and their guests won’t soon forget.

Wedding Advice

The day goes by so fast, so handcuff yourself to your husband so the two of you can have the same memories. Also if something does not go as planned remember only you know your friends and family do not, so stay calm.
