Isn't the ocean beautiful from here? The Pelican Hill has an amazing view especially on a clear day.
My friend's wedding was outside and was fortunate that it was a lovely southern California day.
I'm obsessed with clean bathrooms that I couldn't resist taking a photo especially since nobody was there.
I got to hold the bouquet for a tad while my friend used the restroom and I couldn't resist taking a snap of these beautiful calla lilies especially because purple is my favorite color.
Simple but lovely.
The maid of honor and my friend's oldest daughter as her she sees her mom walk down the aisle.
The beautiful bride and groom.
I just had to take a photo of her train.
She looked like a goddess.
The centerpieces were just as lovely as everything else and I still can't believe that I didn't win one.
The gold table setting matched the rest of the golden color scheme.
The only dancing at the wedding was done by these Khmer dancers as a way to honor the bride and groom.
If you've read through my blog before you must know my obsession with popcorn and I thought it was lovely that they served it on the appetizer.
The amazing and delicious cake that they served at the wedding. Behind the cake was the candy buffet that I swear really was there but you can't see it from this photo.
Overall the wedding was a different experience for my hubby and I since we are used to loud parties that don't end early. I would describe the wedding as beautiful, enlightening, and lovely. The couple did not accept gifts but instead opted to accept donations for an organization they run that provides rice to the Cambodian population. During dinner they presented videos of the couple doing humanitarian work in Cambodia and it was refreshing to see how these two individuals in such a short time of knowing each other found harmony in helping others. To me my friends that is something that you can't put a price on. I wish the lovely couple a long and happy marriage and hope that they continue to do good in this world.
