Brenda & Andy’s Purple & Lavender OC Heritage Museum wedding
Aren’t these guys adorable? Brenda & Andy celebrated their love in a beautiful ceremony at the grounds of the Heritage Museum of Orange County. The day began at Brenda’s sister’s house where her mom helped her get ready. She then rode a classic baby blue Chevy to the venue where Andy was avidly waiting for her along with his groomsmen. Mike & Brynn D’Avello of D’Avello Photography – who are responsible for the beautiful photos you see on this page — have a few juicy behind-the-scenes details:
Jokes about leaving single life behind were frequent but Andy just smiled and shook his head. You can tell that he is excited about marrying the woman he loves, starting a life with the right one. Single life has lost it’s charm and he is wholeheartedly ready for the ceremony and the life that follows. The grounds of the Heritage Museum of Orange County are quiet and peaceful. The chairs are set, the guests are arriving and before long we are all witnesses to the creation of a new Mr. & Mrs. Afterwards in the rush of greeting guests and hugging family Andy is vigilant of his new bride, getting her water and moving her into the shade. All day long he had his eyes on her, making sure she was taken care of. Brenda was absolutely stunning, hand-in-hand with her groom, dancing and pushing her guests to enjoy themselves.
What a beautiful bride! Brenda shares some tidbits about themselves:
I am 23 years old and a Mechanical engineering student at CSUF. Andy and I are both Mexican. We met in high school and we love going to the desert, offroading and the river.
How cute is the bridal party in their purple & grey outfits (that, I might add, perfectly complemented the museum’s facade!) Brenda adds that they had 8 pairs of bridesmaids and groomsmen wearing outfits to match their dark purple and lavender theme.
LOVE this dramatic portrait!
Aww, such a sweet shot of the lovebirds!
After the ceremony they headed to Costa Mesa for the reception party. The decor and details like the flowers, cake and candy bar were all decked in the purple & lavender motif. Brenda shares that for their wedding, they wanted a “young” feel with some Mexican traditions such as a mariachi and a Latin brass band thrown in.
Huge thanks to Brynn & Mike for sharing their beautiful images with us and congratulations to the lovely couple!
