Honored and excited does not even begin to express my excitement when our dear friend Calli called me about her big plans for her special day. Having both worked in the wedding industry, these lovebirds not only knew what vendors they wanted to collaborate to create their wedding but they knew how important it was to have a wedding that truly reflected them. First call was to the newest venue on the So Cal wedding scene right in the heart of Calli’s hometown – the truly iconic Loft on Pine. Once we knew we had the perfect spot – cue the sparkles, confetti, bow ties, light bulb chandelier and great food because this couple is not about a stuffy dinner, overly complicated traditions or boring details. This attitude, combined with the brilliance of Inviting Occasion…well, the result was truly spectacular, might have brought me to tears. We were thrilled to lead the killer team on a super fun day. Stunning photos thanks to Aaron Young Photography.
Congratulations Calli & Chris!!!
