A Stone’s Throw Wedding Planner

A Stone’s Throw Wedding Planner Cortney Helaine Events helped plan an event at the twinkling venue, A Stone’s Throw Winery. Sarah and Russ as they became Mr. and Mrs. Abdulla with a ceremony their favorite church, St Killian’s. As guests arrived to a cocktail hour followed next to the historic landmark, the Swanner House, in San Juan Capistrano, surrounded by orange groves. When guests entered the reception area, they were greeted  with a star dazzled night with lots of dancing to come.

Some of our favorite moments throughout the evening were the glass door with handwritten names for each guest at each table. Another favorite was how perfect the dusty rose bridesmaids dresses complimented the summer affair. Sarah and Russ’s church wedding ceremony progreses, you could see how much their love was going to grow and continue through the ages.

The beautiful bride got her makeup and hair perfected like that of a princess by Flawless Faces before the photography of the big day began by Greg Ross. The ladies had their hair long and down but were ready to kick up their heels when the dance much turned on. A small cake was the perfect treat to end the night with Sarah and Russ. They ceremoniously cut their cake together as guests dined on their miniature dessert bar available all night. 

Guests enjoyed decadent appetizers, a lovely dinner, and darling desserts provided by Canyon Catering. A Stone’s Throw Wedding Planner Cortney Helaine Event’s helped with planning and all of the day-of coordination details leading up to the wedding and on the big day.
