I met Shanna when I was setting up another wedding at Californos last year. It's a common occurance, and I love Californos just for that reason (and many other reasons). When we met for our consult she brought along a posse, including her sweet daughter. From the start she was so open to ideas, and I absolutely LOVED the custom grey and white linens we created for their tables. The set-up was a decor-a-thon, including a backdrop for their outdoor ceremony, sheer curtains for the entry way, and tons of white lanterns, lights, and hanging flowers over the dance floor. A fun little tid bit: Shanna set her bridal bouquet down before the ceremony and someone placed it behind the bar for safe keeping, but failed to tell the bride. When it came time for the ceremony no one could find it, so Shanna rolled with it, and subbed in a bridesmaids bouquet. Now that's a laid back bride. Thanks for letting us be part of your day Shanna and Michael, and also thanks to Melissa Lin Ellis for her lovely pics of the couple!
