I’m a scientific analytical mind by day, and a wedding planner fanatic/Martha Stewart by night!!  Getting married at Rancho Las Lomas.  It’s costing us a fortune, and I sometimes wonder if I should have found a more affordable venue, but I am absolutely in love with its beauty and seclusion away from the chaotic world!!  Hopefully we can offset some of the costs by doing DYI projects and being ever so creative and resourceful!!

I live in OC, but I’m getting married in SD… we looked at a lot of OC venues, but they were just too expensive :-/

DrDazey – My mom was in LOVE w/  Rancho Las Lomas! You have a beautiful venue ๐Ÿ™‚

Aw yes. OC girls!

An Irvinian & grad student at UCLA- thus a major commuter… we are getting married @Hans Fahden in Calistoga, Ca! And I need advice on blocking rooms- so if someone can head over to my post on ‘blocking hotel rooms‘ to put their two sense in that would be greatly appreciated because I am going bonkers on what to do!!!! =o) 

DrDrazey a Martha Stewart gal by night eh?! This weekend I am going to attempt to master baking Martha Stewarts Linzer Cookies so I can taste test them for potential wedding favors treats! (We were considering passing out tea/coffee to go with the idea of B&B/homey-make-u-feel-good-treats)  But- my man has some varying ingredient substitution requests, so this weekend will be interesting in our cooking test kitchen! Wish me luck!  ;o)

@Caliocteach- Awww! you did! See I would love to take engagement pictures on campus! But a) I would fear being tasered and b) my fiance’s alumni is UVA and UNC, so he would feel strange I bet. (I’m kidding on A btw) Did you need clearance to take e-pics on campus from security?

That is so cool you got to do that. I love that campus. I never realize how close to Beverly Hills that school is until some famous person shows up on campus… But the thing is- I don’t really ever know who they are by name… For example, I was walking up the stairs to Royce Hall. I hear this whistling. I figure it is some rude frat boy. So I tried to ignore it… But the whistling continues, with even more emphasis! So I turn around to give this frat boy the evil eye when I recognize the guy as some huge actor from Third Rock from the Sun. At the corner of my eye I see a mov’t. And I turn. It’s his DOG! And then he says to me "I apologize profusely for giving you the impression I am cat calling you, I was merely trying to get my dog’s attention" AND THEN I recognize him as the voice of Lord Farquad from the movie Shrek. I kneeled down to pet the dog… and then I squeeked a "no problem, cute dog" & continued on my way. I had to call my grandma to find out it was John Lithgow. Apparently his wife is a prof on campus, so he walks his dog around campus regularly (or so some student told me). Go figure!

Anyhow… Caliocteach, do you know of any stores that sell any (I’m a dork- but I am going to suck it up for what it’s worth) Bruin Bride apparel? Yes. I already concurred I am a dork. If no one sells them… they are missing out on sales… from mua.

I’m getting married at SeaCliff in HB. I grew up in So Cal and moved away for college and never came back. So I am planning from afar.

  • Wedding: June 2010 - Family Lake House

I’m in Irvine. I work for a national magazine and my fiance is a Ph.D student at UCI. I have been an OC resident now for almost a year! I love it here, but I’m feeling pulled back to my hometown in wine country for our wedding (haven’t set an exact date–thinking either 5.1.2010 or maybe 6.12.2010).

 

@Sparkles: Hans Fahden is only 25 min. from my mom and dad’s house, and we considered it for our wedding! Such a gorgeous venue! Perfect!

 

We’ll probably end up having the wedding at my grandma’s lake house. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello Bees! I have been living here in the OC for 7 years now, my fiance is from here, but we are getting married up in San Francisco! As much as I love OC and there are so many beautiful places here, we wanted to do something different and "force" our friends to spend a weekend away with us  ๐Ÿ™‚   so after looking at probably 50 venues from Tahoe to Sonoma to SF, we chose SF. Easiest for people to drive/fly right into. But I did really love Sonoma  (sigh) ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wedding: July 2009

Hello everyone!  I grew up here in Orange County, but I went to college on the East Coast and spent seven years there before deciding to return home for law school.  Every now and then I still get a pang for New York, especially because that’s where my fiance is.  We plan to get married at my neighborhood parish in Costa Mesa, with a traditional Vietnamese American* banquet reception in Anaheim.  Ever since my friend introduced me to weddingbee, I have found that more and more time has been devoted to reading it than reading for classes! 

*I say Vietnamese American, but because Vietnamese culture adopts many Chinese customs, it’s probably more appropriate to say Vietnamese/Chinese American reception.  Also, my fiance is Filipino Chinese, so we will definitely incorporate Filipino elements into the wedding as well.
