Virginia Country Club Wedding : Shannon+Bill


Number one. If there was a common theme in Shannon’s life, it’s number one. To be the best sister, daughter, friend and regardless of how she ensured it happened, it always did. She’s the type of person to plan family dinners, orchestrate holiday events, organize Lakers-themed parties, or send a personalized card. And these characteristics have less to do with being better than, but to gather like-minded people around her and share gravity of her love.

When Bill came into Shannon’s life, he became the a participant in the gale force energy that Shannon possesses. They went to NBA games together, dressed for themed parties together, and patiently listened as details were organized for a litany of events. The way Bill looks at Shannon across a crowded room gives onlookers an idea of why he loves her so much: while she’s making others feel their best, he knows he’s become her number one.

Shannon and Bill…who’s ready to plan another wedding?! Com’on friends…we can talk about the plans for DAYS!!! I’m sure you’re enjoying the sunny beaches of Maui, but patiently waiting a sneak peek of your wedding photos too…so here they are! I hope they embody all the work your poured into your special day and reflect the love your have for each other and those around you. It was an honor to join you on your first day as husband and wife. Much Love and Appreciation… j*

The wedding day began at Shannon’s parents’ country club, Virginia Country Club in Long Beach wear she donned a perfect Nicole Miller wedding dress…

Shannon and her design consultant, Melanie Furata, worked on creating personalized elements to the wedding day and every corner was filled with pops of color…loved it! Many thanks to Primary Petals for this fuchsia, orange, and teal bouquet…

The ever fab ladies of Fiore Beauty were on hand to ensure Shannon’s hair and makeup were simply beautiful…

Shannon and Bill opted to see each other before the ceremony for a First Look, which was a perfect fit for for their day and calming the bride’s nerves before walking down the aisle…

The amazing crew at Virginia Country Club carted us on golf carts wherever we wanted to go and I’m incredibly thankful we discovered with lovely patch of light along the golf course…

Oh, Shannon, really?!?

Just before the ceremony, we were able to utilize the amazing light of such a beautiful wedding day…

The amazing light continued as JD captured this photo leading into the wedding…

Every time I see a mantilla veil, I want to wear one. Around the house…like, when I wash dishes or paint my nails. Love it.

Paper goods add that perfect splash of detail goodness, so I was delighted to see Posh Paperie on hand for the reception as well…

I loved the chevron table runner mixed with the organic vibe of the centerpieces…

The First Dance…with special lighting provided by the ever amazing videographers, Elysium Productions

I must give a special shout out to The Young Guns…they were amazing and provided such a fun evening!

Speaking of a fun evening, the night was made perfect with Cool Haus ensuring ice cream sandwiches were handmade and served right…

    That chevron runner is asking to be sent to Abby Larson. No. Begging! What a beautiful wedding, Jasmine! I start looking through your work now keeping an eye out specifically for "fun" and "fresh" and your image selection is fantastically fitting. I could continue with some major "F" alliteration… but will close with your trademark– fabulous.

    Question: Would what you said in yesterday’s post be different if the bride’s parents didn’t own the venue (have constant access to it)(and maybe the fountain not being such a unique feature of the venue to them)? Or would it be the same because you know that the couple hired you for your aesthetics, vision, and ability to pick the best locations for that time and day for them for great photographs? Thank-you.
