After Steven and Shelly’s touching ceremony, we followed the couple and the bridal party outside for some beautiful shots before sunset. Then it was back to The Chuck Jones Center for a one-of-a-kind reception and dinner. The couple sprinkled many personal touches throughout the reception, including napkins with a personalized message, bowls overflowing with candy, and countless roses and calla lilies. It was a pleasure to watch their closest family and friends take turns toasting the couple with one sweet speech after another. But it wasn’t all serious! Shelly had a big surprise waiting for Steven. She invited his favorite DJ to spin for the reception! It was a fantastic treat for everyone who intended to dance.
