Paige and Josh’s wedding day at The Estate on Second in Santa Ana, was a sweet and stylish celebration planned and designed by K. Sage Events. The bride, who “loves asymmetry” (and we totally love that Paige loves asymmetry) decided to incorporate her passion for the un-balanced into some delightful details—like a triangular menu laid atop dinner plates and a STUNNING pageant style bouquet by Floral Fete. The couple wanted to keep things family-oriented and paid homage to family by featuring their parents and grandparents cake-cutting images next to their own (gorgeous) cake. They brought on Mallory Dawn Photography to capture all the beautiful moments of the day and she definitely did!
What made the wedding special and unique?
The decorations were probably the most unique part of the wedding. Josh and I hand made the wooden signage used throughout the venue which was definitely unique to our wedding. I also love asymmetry so I decided to add some of that to the wedding. My bouquet was a presentation or pageant style bouquet which felt very special. I also decided to make our menu card triangular, which was something I hadn’t seen before.
Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!
Josh and I were on a time crunch so I had to purchase and have my dress fitted within four months! I went to Bellasposa in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. We were somewhat limited on what I could pick to have ready in time but I only ended up trying 5 dresses before I decided on the one I chose. I fell in love with the the beautiful beading, the back and train of my gown. They did a great job working with me so I didn’t have to settle on a dress!
What were some touches added to make the wedding personal
Two things really stand out to me as personal in our wedding. Next to our cake we had pictures of my parents cutting their wedding cake, my dads parents cutting their cake, and my moms parents cutting their cake. We really wanted our wedding to be family-oriented and as my dad says a legacy of love. This was shown perfectly with the generations cake cutting pictures. We also decided to donate to the Los Angeles Mission in lieu of wedding favors. This is personal for us since Josh often works with homeless in L.A. It can really be made personal for everyone depending on what charity you would like to donate toward from research for an illness to donating to the military.
What was the most memorable part of the day?
The entire day had so many memorable moments: our vows, the speeches and the cake cutting. The thing I will absolutely never forget was our first dance. I was in the middle of Josh spinning me and my hair got stuck to his cuff link! Our bridal party had to come to the rescue to unattach us and when we finally could dance again our guests cheered. I don’t remember the last time we laughed so hard.
Tell us how you met and became engaged.
Josh and I met on Tinder! I was the first person Josh matched with on tinder. After a few weeks of texting we went on a date and the rest is history. Josh asked me to marry him in December; he knows Christmas is my favorite time of the year. We went to a family owned Christmas tree farm where he had hung handmade ornaments the night before that spelled out Marry Me?. He also managed to set up the GoPro perfectly without me knowing to get the whole thing on video. It was perfect and surprisingly private.
