This California wedding will leave you dreaming! Ariana was a joy to work with. I have to admit, I was STOKED to make this veil. I love the look of the lace on the cap (yes, cap!)
Where was your venue, and why did you pick it?
Calvary Chapel East Anaheim- It was the church I grew up, gave my life to Christ in, and was baptized in. I attended there for 22 years. My husband attended there for 11 years. I met my husband on a missions trip through CCEA, when we were both in high school.
Where did you get your dress?
I had a piece of my father’s shirt cut out and sewn in a heart shape into my dress. Over the shirt was lace from my mother’s wedding dress.
All of the boutonnieres were fake flowers, made out of my husband’s late grandmother’s sheet music (my husband is a worship leader). I even had a few fake flowers in my bouquet, made out of sheet music, as well.
Who was your florist?
A friend of mine, Sara Hughes, who does floral arrangements for weddings in her garage
My bouquet was wrapped with more lace from mother’s wedding dress, and had two pins. One was our Chambers family crest from Ireland (where my Husband and I want to be missionaries) and a USAF pin in honor of my Father.
The Ariana Veil (named after this lovely bride!) is an English Net, Juliette Cap veil, with Alencon Lace detailing
My Father is a veteran. When he left the military, he lost his blues due to family circumstances. He surprised me with new Air Force blues to walk me down the aisle. It was the greatest surprise!
My husband’s Grandfather is a Pastor, and performed the ceremony. We had a memorial table set up in memory of all of those who had passed away.
We took communion with my families communion cup and plate that we used at home for family Bible Study.
Who made your cake?
The glasses, that were filled with orange juice for our toasts, were the ones my sister and brother-in-law used for their toasts at their wedding.
Last, but certainly not least, who did all of this amazing photography?
Ariana, your wedding was amazing! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it!!
