Shabby Chic Wedding in Fallbrook, CA: Planning and Marriage Tips from a Beautiful Bride

Planning a wedding is not an easy task, but when it comes together so beautifully, the hard work ends up being worth it.  Gorgeous bride Chelsea shares how she made it happen and Elle Lily Photography captures and shares the beautiful turn out. 

Planning the wedding.

I was fortunate to have been able to hire wedding coordinator, Marisa with Seven Stems. I wanted to be involved in the wedding planning, but did not necessarily know where to look. With the help of a wedding coordinator, Marisa supplied me with 3 or more options/vendors with similar but unique qualities for every aspect of our wedding. Most importantly, I learned that if there is one vendor to splurge on, it would be your photographer. Your photographer should make you feel comfortable. Your pictures portray your special day for years to come so we really wanted someone who took a candid approach and not have our photos looking so staged. We couldn't be more excited to have our images captured by Elle Lily Photography. Lianna and Danny are one awesome photography couple. They connected with our bridal party in a matter of minutes which allowed for a natural approach, exactly what my husband and I wanted.

Love is when someone else’s happiness is your happiness.
