Just finished a beautiful wedding for a fun and loving couple and had to share the joy. The photos are from my camera and so are only a (sometimes blurry) glimpse of what’s to come from Colleen Rosenthal Photography.

Kimberly is the executive director for our local Historical Museum and Norm owns Aeromech Engineering Inc. A company that builds unmanned aerial systems.The sweet couple and I chose the Dana Powers House in Nipomo for their wedding celebration. Judi Powers has owned and operated this relentlessly charming home, gardens and barn as a special event site since 1972. I will go into detail about the history of this property in a future blog.There are many elements a wedding designer and coordinator is looking for when choosing a site to host a wedding. Of course it must be beautiful, it should be easy for guests to get to and you hope and pray it is user friendly. Let me tell you Judi, her husband Ed, her children and grandchildren have the fun-loving hard-working graciousness and winning attitude that brings sweet success to any celebration and makes my job not only easier but the overall experience truly a joy.

Again, I will go into detail about the overall design of this wedding including the fabulous team of vendors in a future blog but for now please enjoy these images of what became a celebration theme of “Nostalgic Romance”!
