Just a quick break from December with the soft and romantic SoCal wedding from Jonathan Canlas…

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  We fell in love with the venue as soon as we pulled up to the dirt parking lot. The tour of the venue was romantic; the equestrian center with its rustic barn was a blend of vintage and elegance.

What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  All things timeless and lovely.

What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  Sitting at the head table and looking out to see that we were surrounded by all our family and friends who love us.

Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  Just a sprinkle of Korean tradition was incorporated into our wedding. The bride’s mother wore a traditional Korean dress and we also served Korean rice cakes during cocktail hour.

What was the best advice you received as a bride?  I was told over and over again to enjoy every moment of the day because it’ll be over before I know it. Boy, was that true! Thankfully, I reminded myself to do just that throughout the whole day, and as a result, there are mental pictures that I can talk about today.

What advice do you have for other brides?  Don’t spend too much time/effort magnifying details on the big day, but instead, use that energy to celebrate the start of your life with your best friend.
