Desirae and Phillip’s families gathered on a warm winter day at the San Gabriel Mission to witness their “I do’s.” Their smiles were infectious and you could see the joy on their faces as they sealed their promise with a kiss and made their way back down the aisle…“At last, we’re married!”

After the ceremony was over, everyone made their way to the Redondo Beach Historic Library for the couple’s beautiful  reception. It was a little bit of a drive from the ceremony site but totally worth it! The reception venue was a warm and inviting setting; the perfect place to host their guests for dinner and dancing. Outside, the view of the ocean and clouds was simply breathtaking!

Over dinner guests shared touching and heartfelt stories and bits of wisdom with the newlyweds. The toasts brought tears of joy to the couple as they listened. After dinner they danced late into the night in celebration… and of course, there was plenty of cake!
