Amber and Johnny – The Grand, Long Beach – January 2009

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

Amber and Johnny are the cutest young couple! They needed someone to direct their January 3, 2009 ceremony at Rosewood Church and the reception set up immediately following for 300 people at The Grand Event Center in Long Beach. So, their photographer, Kendra Duerst, referred them to me. I thought Amber’s mother, Robin, was a very brave woman for tackling a wedding of this size just a FEW days after the holidays, but it turned out fabulous! The wedding colors of black and red provided a very elegant theme to their day – what a gorgeous group of bridesmaids in their long, black gowns! Friar Tux dressed the guys in style and Rossmoor Pastries provided the beautiful cake. We were constantly restocking the very popular black, white and red themed candy station. Kids and adults alike were enjoying the sweets. Amber and Johnny’s day is one of the Real Weddings featured in the current issue of OC Bride Magazine. Click here to check it out!
