Two real wedding days in a row this week! Today’s real wedding is of Erin and Sean, a bride that loved her wedding so much she went into the event planning business and started Soiree Event Design!

Erin and Sean met through a mutual friend and hit it off straight away! When Erin moved away to attend college, the couple continued dating and spent three years of their relationship long distance. They married at Palmdale Estates in California.

Erin says “My groom slipped me a note on a napkin under the door to the room I was getting ready in that said “I love you babe. See you soon” and I still have that napkin on our fridge.”

The bridesmaids walked down the aisle to Erin’s favourite piano song from the movie Amelie.

Erin hung a chandelier under the gazebo in which the wedding was held- a nod to the vintage glamour vibe she wanted for the wedding and her love of chandeliers. Erin’s father officiated the ceremony and personalised his words.
