My cousin Chad got married over Memorial Weekend in Los Angeles. It was such a beautiful wedding and I'm so glad we decided to go! We were on the fence about attending after the hotel/flight deal fell through. In the end, we decided to make a road trip out of it and it was a blast!
Chad & Allie got married in the Los Angeles LDS Temple. I love the architectural design of that temple & the location is perfect. It sits right on top of a hill, smack in the middle of downtown Los Angeles. The weather was perfect too, which made for a great wedding day! It was so neat to see Chad and Allie get married. Their love story is one of a kind and they're perfect for one another. Chad was so sweet lovey with Allie. I love seeing newly wed couples who can't get enough of each other and I love to see a groom look at his bride with googly eyes! Ah, love!The reception that evening was held at Allie's cousin's house in Yorba Linda. The minute I saw the house I fell in love with it! Not only was the outside amazing, but the inside was a designers dream! (That'll be a whole separate post!)
The reception was absolutely amazing & I loved every minute of it! Everything was so Chad & Allie- vintage, youthful, and FUN! They both love In-N-Out burgers and had them cater! Ordering a double-double, animal/protein style at a wedding was definitely a first for me, but one that I thoroughly enjoyed. They also had a milk shake station set up, yummy pies, delicious mixed fruit & my favorite, mini Martinelli's (which also happens to be Chad's favorite drink)!
The whole set up was lovely and everything had a vintage touch. I loved the little mason jars used to serve the fruit and the adorable mini chalk boards, the vintage books, wild flowers, burlap, distressed, antique furniture, etc.
Chad's little brother Ryan wrote and performed this sweet song as part of his best man's speech. It was awesome!
