Liem & Leila | Wedding Reception
Devon Estate Long Beach

Weddings

Let’s get this party started!

Once Liem and Leila’s was over at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Seal Beach, it was time to party at their reception at the Devon Estate in Long Beach where you could instantly feel the excitement.

We love when a couple is so in love that it comes right through the lens like these shots we took of these two kicking up their heels along with their guests at this local gem of a spot. But before we headed to the reception, we stole the bride and groom away for some fun alone time portraits under the Seal Beach Pier. It’s so important so get these great shots because ultimately they’re the ones that will be hanging on the bride & groom’s wall for years to come!

The reception details were right up my alley – simple, rustic, earthy. Their simple two-tiered cake topped with little birds, place cards wrapped with twine, poised on a tiny little logs. The centerpieces were beautiful bouquets poised as mini-trees with wooden trunks instead of vases. Even the tea lights were nestled in cute little burlap covers with lace accents. We must say that these two poured a lot of love & detail into the day, and gave all their guests a truly wonderful celebration to remember.

Be sure to check out their ceremony blog post from St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Seal Beach. The ceremony was beautiful and we were able to capture some wonderful shots of the couple getting ready just before saying their vows, too. 

We wish this lovely couple all the best and we were so happy to have been a part of the intimate ceremony and their rockin’ reception at the Devon Estate; it’s one we’ll all remember fondly!
