Warntjes Wedding {Part One} | Chuck Jones Center
Costa Mesa, CA

Weddings

We always love to work with couples from Long Beach. The city seems to produce almost exclusively great people. Steven and Shelly are the perfect example of that. We were with the couple at the Wyndham Costa Mesa as they prepared for their beautiful day. Shelly looked simply stunning as the makeup artist completed the finishing touches. Her dress and bouquet were equally gorgeous and dramatic. It was clear from the serene expression on her face how much the day meant to her. Her bridesmaids kept Shelly company in perfectly chic black gowns.

Finally, it was time for the ceremony at The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, a nonprofit founded by the legendary animation creator and director, Chuck Jones. The Center’s website says its vision is, “to inspire the innate creative genius within each person that leads to a more joyous, passionate, and harmonious life and world.” The space is very minimalistic and served as a blank canvas for the couple’s vision. A favorite moment of the ceremony for us was when the ring bearer walked down the aisle with real style and flair. When Shelly arrived arm­in­arm with her father, well, it was picture perfect. Their vows were incredibly touching. See for yourself!
