Perona Farms Wedding :: Rachel and Drew

We’re playing catch up with our blogging but I’m so excited to share Rachel and Drew’s Perona Farms Wedding! This was such a vibrant and fun wedding – and Rachel and Drew were so sweet and so great to work with! The event was amazing! The Wedding was located among a district of beautiful large wedding houses!

My hubby Rob Adams Films was capturing the day alongside of me and we loved Rachel and Drew’s over all day and color scheme. Rachel wore a classic Morilee wedding gown with straps and a sweet heart neck line – it fit her beautifully! Her bridesmaids all wore mismatched vibrant pinks, purples and oranges from gown designers like Bill Levkoff, Jasmine, Watters , Kenneth Winston .

I was not surprised when Rachel and Drew broke out their sunglasses for some portraits – it was so fun and clearly showed how much as a couple they are together. After a lovely church ceremony and portraits, we headed to Perona Farms where the party was ready to start! Excel Entertainment did an amazing job on keeping everyone up and dancing and of course, no wedding is complete with out an amazing Cake byPalermo’s Bakery and some fun night time photos!

Drew and I were set up on a blind date by coworkers. We had an amazing first date, and afterwards I accidentally sent him a text saying, “Best first date ever!” originally intended for my sister. It was love at first sight, and we’ve never looked back.

I wanted everyone who shared our wedding day with us to have the most memorable and enjoyable time. Hence why I used a highly recommended Wedding and Event Planer.

I wanted my wedding to really represent Drew and I. We love being creative and DIY’ing, so we knew this wedding would be full of handmade touches. The butterflies strewn throughout the decor are based on our last name, Monarque- it’s a little “punny” , but we are, too! The farm theme came from the fact we went to a friends wedding at The Barn At Mader Farm and we knew instantly that we wanted out wedding to have a farm feel.
