Michael & Cameron // Neighborhood Church wedding in Palos Verdes

torrance episcopal wedding neighborhood church

how she did itFROM THE BRIDE // 
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR WEDDING?  //  I grew up at the Neighborhood Church in Palos Verdes.  From baptisms to Easter Egg Hunts to Christmas Pageants, I had always hoped to get married in my church.  My now-husband had recently moved to join me in LA after we met in Seattle and did the coastal long distance relationship.  We knew we wanted to have a party in Seattle with our friends and extended family but decided to have a smaller ceremony in LA at the church to kick off the festivities.
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE/FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR WEDDING DAY?  //  Taking a moment before and after the ceremony to just be alone together and gather our thoughts.  We took an “Irish Stroll” and wandered the church grounds alone together before meeting our family and minister in front of the church. Then we quietly walked through the church with our family trailing us and out to the patio. The patio is anchored by an olive tree which reminds me very much of my childhoom home and is where church services were held on warm days when I was a little girl.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR BRIDES WHO ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PLANNING PROCESS?  //  If you’re a reader, get a copy of A Practical Wedding (http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Wedding-Affordable-Meaningful-Celebration/dp/0738215155/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1406868033&sr=8-1&keywords=practical+wedding) and Offbeat Bride (http://www.amazon.com/Offbeat-Bride-Creative-Alternatives-Independent/dp/1580053157/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1406868076&sr=8-1&keywords=offbeat+bride). Those books grounded me and helped me figure out what could be possible on a reasonable budget.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF BEING MARRIED NOW?  //  We have always been the best of friends. Now we are just that much closer to each other.
