Other cool stuff we should know about: We are so lucky to have a collection of great family and friends. Everyone pitched in to help bring it together to make it a great event. Chris’ parents love to bake especially his dad. His dad made two cakes and chocolate chili cookies, and his mom made lemon bars. Our friend Brittany has a knack for flowers and did all the flowers for the wedding. Also our friend Viana made a fun piñata to make it a smashing time, literally!

Favorite thing about the wedding: When everyone jumped into the pool with all their clothes on at the end of the night!

    Yayyy!!!! Joanne, you were already awesome in my book and I am so glad to see that you had a wonderful wedding! The ceremony and reception look amazing.

    Shameless plug for her btw: if you need a good hairstylist (especially for curly hair) in Orange County, Joanne is the one to go to!
