For their April 1 wedding celebration at Grand Pacific Palisades in Carlsbad, this couple playfully executed a fun springtime event with grace and whimsy.
From pinwheels in the arbor to argyle socks reflecting their gray & yellow theme, Katy and Troy were so fun and fun-loving!

Cutest funnest blingiest bridal shoes ever!

Their creative execution of playful surprises throughout the wedding made this such a memorable event, and fun for their guests as well.
Friends and family got in on the act as well – Mother of the Bride created all of the centerpieces with florals from a wholesaler, and friends put set up a fun interactive Candy Bar for guests to take home goodies.

Katy & Troy: fun-loving and in love

“Gayle did everything we hoped she said she would and more. . . . it was absolutely the best choice we made in the entire wedding process. The fact that I could relax and enjoy my day with my new husband, family and friends knowing that everything was taken care of was invaluable.”

Wedding guests can make their own to-go bag favor of goodies from the candy bar!

Congratulations you two!
