Karie and Terry – Renaissance Club Sport Aliso Viejo – September 25, 2009

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

LUCK OF THE IRISH! Terry was listening to an Irish band play at a restaurant. Karie had met her girlfriends for drinks nearby. She was getting into her car to leave, but the music drew her inside the restaurant. She pulled her car back into a spot and went inside to hear the band. Each of them noticed the other right away, but figured they were there with dates….and the rest is fate. Terry proposed during a trip to Ireland while following the performances of the Irish band, The Fenians.

I couldn’t wait to coordinate the wedding day of Karie and Terry. Their wedding was going to be a traditional Catholic ceremony, with the unique addition of kilts for the groom and groomsmen. Ringbearer, Brandon, stole the show in his pint-sized kilt! Father Kerry Beaulieu, whom I’ve known for many years, officiated the ceremony. It took place at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Newport Beach. After the ceremony, the guests proceeded down to the Renaissance Club Sport in Aliso Viejo for cocktails. Karie and Terry were transported in style by Randy from Lake Forest Limousine in a Rolls Royce Classic Packard. The reception was held in the Renaissance Room, which was decorated in navy blue to match the tartan, with the tables named after Counties in Ireland. Of course, the couple had The Fenians play at the reception and they rocked the house! The crowd’s dancing REALLY intensified whenever Irish songs were played. Of course, Photographer Kendra Duerst caught it all from start to finish. It was a wonderful night – one big Irish party!
