What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

Jove Meyer from Jove Meyer Events was a key piece in the wedding planning process before and on the day of the wedding. He flew out to California during the planning and for the wedding to coordinate the day of… It wouldn’t have been a magical day with out his contributions!

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding? 

I needed vendors who could help lead me through the creative process with their expertise. I also wanted to work with vendors that were nice and had personalities that were pleasant and upbeat. All of my vendors worked well together which allowed for smooth transitions and amazing environments.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

We wanted a whimsical beach theme to share with our guests.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Work with people you like- people you could see being friends with.

Wasn’t that just fabulous?! And I love that they brought their wedding back to the place they fell in love!

Does your venue or location have a special meaning to the two of you?

Can’t wait to hear!

    I was at the wedding and the flowers and details were breathtaking. It truly was the most beautiful wedding I ever had the pleasure to attend. The bride was radiant and the spectacular cliff side views of the ocean crashing against the rocks created a magical experience. The entire event was breathtaking.
