Lily and Randy got married at the picturesque Diamond Bar Center and it was BEAUTIFUL! The venue overlooks the most insane views of the San Gabriel Valley and has one of the prettiest ceremony sites. I had been looking forward to capturing the day since their engagements and was not disappointed. One of my favorite weddings to date!
Lily was the happiest, sweetest bride and the whole day was more smooth than probably any wedding I’ve ever photographed! I absolutely love when wedding days are centered around celebrating with family and friends. It’s easy to get caught up in the small things, but when it comes down to it, it’s all about relationships and focusing on what really matters. It was such a joy to see everyone come together to love on these two!
Also, can we talk about Lily’s florals? Mulberry and Moss created one of my favorite bouquets ever! Love the small tropical twist. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of her bridal bouquet! Heart eyes for days! 😍
Here’s a bit of pre-wedding advice for my brides-to be:
My big tip that Lily did so well… CREATE BUFFER TIME IN YOUR TIMELINE!
Buffer time will be your saving grace. I’ve seen brides schedule things so tightly where, if one thing goes wrong, the whole day is thrown into chaos and it’s hard to recover because you get so stressed out! Things often take longer than you think, so adding in 10 minute buffers throughout the day will help you relax so you don’t constantly need to be in GO GO GO mode. Remember, you want to enjoy your wedding day and not feel frazzled!
Your timeline is the cornerstone for your wedding day and Lily and her coordinator totally nailed it :).
