Ocean Institute Wedding Planner

It is so fun when couples are able to incorporate special memories into their special day for an Ocean Institute Wedding Planner. Maddie & Chris had a wedding day overflowing with precious memories. Starting with their gorgeous venue at the Ocean Institute, where the groom used to work for years, to a surprise appearance from his alma mater, the USC marching band during the reception. And what a show they up for the guests and couple! It was an unforgettable performance for an unforgettable evening.

These fun memories weren’t the only sweet part of the day, the couple also had a decadent dessert table complete with homemade treats, candy, and a charming cake from It’s All About the Cake.  Epic 1’s DJ Todd helped guests create new memories out on the dance floor. What an unforgettable wedding!! We are wishing all the best to Maddie & Chris as they continue their story together as husband and wife. Thank you for trusting us with your dream wedding day and allowing us to be apart of it.
