Today I am happy to introduce our guest blogger Megan! The decor and florals of Megan and Kyle’s wedding are absolutely stunning and the after party decor is equally as beautiful. This couple’s love for one another is evident throughout the entire film!
Kyle and I met in college at the University of Colorado at Boulder and five years later he proposed in his hometown of Winter Park, Colorado on a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride in the snow. After a year and half long engagement, we were married on June 20, 2009 at the breathtakingly beautiful Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast, California. Growing up in Southern California, I’d always dreamed of getting married overlooking the ocean and The Resort at Pelican Hill was the perfect venue for us.
We were so excited to get married and wanted our wedding planning process to be as easy and stress-free as possible and it was exactly that, thanks to our AMAZING team of people helping us along the way. It all started with our wonderful wedding planner, Jeannie Savage, from Details, Details. She introduced us to our venue, all of our vendors and took care of every last detail for us. Along with Jeannie, we had the wonderful George Nickels, director of weddings at the Resort at Pelican Hill, and the fabulous Christopher Aldama of Fiori Fresco Special Events working with us. Together, the three of them worked diligently to ensure that our memorable event would be perfect and magical. Christopher Aldama created and designed our theme of “romantic and understated elegance”. He brought to life everything we had envisioned for our wedding, and more. Our team would not have been complete without our photographer, Victor Sizemore of Victor Sizemore Photography and our videographer, Elysium Productions. Documenting this momentous occasion was extremely important to Kyle and me. We knew that the day would go by so quickly and we wanted to make sure that we could capture every moment and be able to relive it for the many years to come. Victor Sizemore did an absolutely amazing job in capturing every moment beautifully and Elysium’s Same Day Edit and video of our wedding were spectacular. Elysium’s work took our breath away and truly encompassed our entire day and the feel of our wedding. Being able to watch all of those precious moments over and over again is absolutely priceless and we feel so lucky to have had such an amazing videographer document our wedding day for us.
Our wedding day seemed to be just as stress-free as the planning process proved to be. Everything went seamlessly and was absolutely perfect! We feel so blessed to have been able to really enjoy our big day and focus on each other and the wonderful family and friends around us, rather than stressing about the little details. If I could give any advice, it would be to really take the time to enjoy yourself and enjoy this special day of celebrating your relationship. I have so many “favorite” memories from the day but one that especially stands out was when we made our grand entrance at the reception and dancing our first dance as husband and wife. It was so wonderful walking into that beautifully decorated ballroom together and seeing all of our closest family and friends there to support us. We went right in to our first dance and it was an intimate and special moment that I will never forget. Our wedding was more than we could have ever dreamed of and we are so thankful for our family and all of the wonderful people that contributed to making it the best day of our lives!
