Terranea Wedding: Joya and Emre

Classy. That's the word I think of when I think of Joya and Emre.  Every moment of our year of planning together they were nothing but. Even when the bridal salon called Joya one month before her wedding to tell her that the dress designer did not make her dress** , she was nothing but classy. The two of them together are classy, gracious, and fun, with great senses of humor. My favorite type of people!

Joya and Emre chose Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes as they were having family from all over the world  attend and they wanted a local wedding that had a destination feel. Over and over again they stressed how much they wanted to make their guest feel comfortable and taken care of, and so much of the planning kept that in mind. 

We had a great, great time planning everything for their March 26 wedding. You can read all about the planning and details over at Junebug Weddings, but below are some of my favorite photos, taken by the ever wonderful Callaway Gable Photography. Next blog, I'll talk about THE VIDEO
