Ventura Wedding

Close your eyes… now think of a romantic wedding, full of family, friends, love ones… what kind of place are you picturing? A garden with a large gazebo? A fancy banquet hall? The beach? A Rock Concert Venue?…… A ROCK CONCERT VENUE?!?!?!? Yes, a rock concert venue.

Believe it or not, I just did a wedding at the Majestic Ventura Theater! Yes, it was totally incredible and yes, I will be recommending it to future clients. To date, my favorite wedding. The couple, Kaci and Blair were super cool, very easy going and this made the day a great success (well, I helped a little I hope )

 

The rehearsal was a last minute decision.

We also had pleasure of having the photographer present for the rehearsal, which doesn’t happen very often, but because their photographer was my husband, Daniel Colegrove, he tagged along and got a few great images.

The morning of the wedding, about a dozen people gathered at the Theater to set up. Kaci made most of the decor herself. She is incredibly talented and crafty. Each table donned lace boats and fabric flowers that were placed on a simple home made table runner.

The guys, as they always do, had plenty of time before the ceremony to goof off and be……well, guys. As you can clearly see here.

The bride, however, gets busy with hair and makeup, and arrives near the Theater looking absolutely stunning. As you can clearly see here.

They had a simple, sweet ceremony on the stage, decorated by an archway, lights, and their attendants. It was touching and personal as all wedding ceremonies should be.

A photo session with Daniel during the cocktail hour gave the newlyweds an opportunity to enjoy each other guest-free for a time.

The dancing went on and on, there was cake of multiple flavors, there was more dancing…and then as midnight approached and the 4th of July was in its wee hours, there were sparklers. And more photos.
