As coordinator Kelle Collier prepared the beautiful Granite Bay Golf Club for the intimate wedding, Mia and Justin remembered their beginning. They met on a dating app in 2017. After talking with each other for a little bit, they decided to meet the next day. Their first date was for lunch the next day. Lunch turned into dinner turned into breakfast. They spent the whole weekend together just talking and getting to know each other… platonically. From that day on, they were inseparable.
The gorgeous mahogany walls of The Library were lined with windows and shelves of books creating a richness and elegance. In addition, the fire in the stone fireplace glowed with warmth on this December day. The club’s classic holiday decorations intermingled with the details of the wedding decor added to the romance of the day.
The tablescapes shimmered with gold accents that played against the candlelight. The favors and napkins were a beautiful mix of holiday green and red that stood out against the cream tablecloths.
Mia got ready at Thunder Valley Casino Resort with the help of her best friend and Maid of Honor, Kelly. They hugged and laughed together in matching personalized robes as Mia got ready for her big day.
Absolutely every detail was perfect. From the invitations Mia found at Minted to the strap sandals that she wore on this winter day in California.
Mia’s sweet cap sleeve dress fit the bride’s even sweeter personality perfectly. Undoubtedly she felt beautiful in it as she smiled in the window light.
Not only did Mia’s clean and simple style reflect in her dress and jewelry, but also her light and elegant makeup done by the fantastic Morgan Merrill of MM Beauty Skin and Makeup Studio,
Dee and Kris know that a good team is, without a doubt, the key to having a wedding go smoothly. Morgan and Kelle were amazing in making this happen for Mia and Justin this day.
Thunder Valley unquestionably provided a unique portrait backdrop with its large windows coupled with the wood and glass doors. The bride positively glowed, outshining the sun.
Clearly the Maid of Honor’s son and daughter thought that Mia was radiant.
Indeed the bride looked gorgeous. However, it should be noted that the groom looked equally sharp in his debonair suit and tie.
On this occasion, Mia and Justin decided to modify the wedding tradition a bit. They didn’t want to see each other, but they enjoyed an intimate moment together to only say their vows to each other.
Justin wiped away a tear as they whispered their vows to each other on the balcony of Granite Bay Golf Club. Finally, they clasped hands and were ready to make these vows in front of guests.
Justin was choked up, without a doubt, as he caught sight of his bride for the first time. As she walked down the aisle toward him, he wiped away tears of joy.
CCC Officiant Charlie Moynahan performed the ceremony with grace and eloquence. She got to know the couple quite well throughout the wedding planning process. One of the services she offers as an officiant is wedding and marriage counseling to help the couple have a long and happy marriage.
Along with the room’s elegance was the added warmth of the holiday decorations as the ceremony backdrop. Among the evergreen and twinkle lights, Mia and Justin pledged their love.
The new husband and wife greeted guests happily.
In addition to the beautiful job Kelle Collier did making the venue inviting, Visual Impact Designs added to the day with their lovely winter-themed floral designs.
The new Mr. and Mrs. made their grand entrance to cheering guests!
The couple playfully cut into the amazing three-tiered cake provided by Above and Beyond Cakes. Truly, in one of the cutest moments of the evening, Mia got frosting on Justin’s face. Naturally, this meaning she had to lick it off.
Together with their wedding party, Mia and Justin took portraits on Granite Bay Golf Course’s beautiful lawns. The overcast skies made a beautiful diffused light that fell upon the couple .
And with a kiss, they begin their forever.
