Orange County Modern Wedding Planner

No one expects to be swiping on Tinder and actually find the love of their life, but Gian and Halli did. On September 3, Halli & Gian’s wedding was on a warm September evening, full of beautiful greenery and white orchids and flowers. When it was time for Gian to see Halli for the first time, Red Trolley Photography captured the most beautiful “First Look” in front of the gorgeous geometric backdrop at the end of the aisle. Orange County Modern Wedding Planner, Cortney Helaine had been working on this wedding and design for over a year and it was definitely more than swipe worthy!

Halli took her guests’ breath away in her stunning a-line, lace-topped, tulle gown as she floated down the aisle with her Mom and Dad. Her bridesmaids were all in beautiful, various long gray dresses, with the groomsmen complimenting them perfectly in gray suits with matching ties and calla lily boutonnieres. Gian walked down the aisle arm in arm with his mother and father, and even shed a tear when he saw Halli walking towards him!

After a beautiful ceremony, Halli and Gian danced into their wedding and settled into their reception, they and all the guests enjoyed a delicious buffet from 24 Carrots Catering, and a stunning gold painted wedding cake, Halli’s custom-designed with Orange County Modern Wedding Planner.

Halli and Gian gave all their guests three seed pods to “let their love grow” as favors as they exited the wedding. Before everyone left, they munched on a late-night snack of mini hamburgers.

Who knew that swiping on right on someone could lead to such a stunning evening of fun, dancing, and love?
