Palm Event Center Wedding

Stephanie and Stephen’s Palm Event Center wedding was beautiful from beginning to end.  They planned every detail to make sure that everyone had a truly amazing time partying with them.  Stephanie and Stephen are truly an amazing couple, just watching them for a few minutes you can see how much they are in love.  They also surround themselves with amazing people and you can see the people they are by how loving their friends are towards them.  Here are a few of their amazing details, wanted to start off with some of the small stuff.

Stephanie got ready at a AirBnB in Pleasanton CA, which she did so there would be enough room for her and the girls to get ready.  Having the house to get ready in was so nice as there was room for everyone to enjoy themselves and get ready without being on top of each other.

Stephanie and Stephen’s day started with a Chinese Tea Ceremony at Courtyard Marriott in Livermore CA.  In the traditional Chinese marriage ceremony, the bride and groom kneel in front of their respective parents and serve them tea and then thank them, which is a devout way to express their gratitude for being raised. On some occasions, the bride serves the groom’s family, and the groom serves the bride’s family.  It was amazing to watch them have their tea ceremony.

Once the tea ceremony was finished we headed to Palm Event Center for their wedding.  Stephanie arrive to Palm Event Center in her Chinese tea dress and did a hair change and got into her dress there.  She decided to do a first look with her bridesmaids of her in the dress, so getting ready was very special as it was just her, her mom, sister and her best friend.

Stephanie and Stephen choose to do a first look so that family photos could take place before the ceremony.  During their first look Stephen presented Stephanie with her bouquet that was custom-made for her by one of her amazing maid of honor.  After finishing their first look we did bridal party photos and romantics.

At Stephanie and Stephen’s Palm Event Center wedding they had a live painter painting their reception and first dance.  I have never seen this and it was truly amazing.  Their reception was such a wonderful party and so much fun to be apart of.  The bridal part did a dance, they had a cover band and even a desert food truck.

During Stephanie’s fathers toast he had drawn up a contract for Stephen to take over all of Stephanie’s debt, his reaction to the papers were truly priceless.
