AJ & Jeana wedding in Bakersfield CA at Rio Bravo Country club on October 24, 2009 at 4pm in the afternoon followed by an evenning reception. The morning consisted of the bride getting ready with her bridesmaids at her mother and fathers house located in Rio Bravo. A breakfeast was shared, make-up was applied and hair was styled and lots of laughs before the big day! Photographers captured each moment of the morning and day by Artisan Photography of Bakersfield CA. The bride did a private session with her bridal lingerie, veil and accessories in her parents romantic spanish style room which was transformed into a bridal suite. The pictures were gorgeous and classy and all captured on the actual day which was a nice surprise for her groom on a special occasion. It was a gorgeous fall wedding in company of close friends and family. The brides entrance consisted of a ride with her father in a classic bentley where all of the guests waited in silence until the car pulled up with the bridesmaids waiting until the arrival before they walked the aisle. The wedding was designed with jewel tone colors:orange,purple, magentas,greens and mustards, with pewter and chocolate accents. The bridesmaids/groomsmen each carried a different color bouquet/boutinier and the bride carried all flower combinations of the wedding party flowers were provided by the brides Aunt who owns White Oaks Florist of Bakersfield CA. The bride wore a goregous dropped waist gown with a random pick up skirt completed with a rhinestone brooch and a two tier veil cathedral length and fingertip blusher with a cut edge all from her own bridal boutique Jeana J's Brides and Proms of Bakersfield which was just selected 2010 Knots Top Pick. The bridesmaids wore a simple silk charmuese tea length, pewter dress by the Dessy Group each girl had the option to wear their own style jewelry and hair. Pictures and video were taken after the ceremony by Artisan and HDM. The pictures and video were natural and captured the bride and groom on their special day. The bride and groom took a golf cart to travel to each spot in the country club area, fun and laughs were shared along with kisses and sweet moments as husband and wife. The reception was magical and filled with great food, laughter and dancing. The bride surprised her wedding party with their very own entrances to the reception with their own songs and facts about each person (THEY WERE TOTALLY SHOCKED AND SURPRISED!!!)The bride surprised her father with a 5 min slow dance that broke out into a two step "Sweet Home Alabama" (the father of the bride did teach his daughter how to dance when she was little so this was a sweet surprise!) As the night progressed with dancing the bride never left the dance floor! DJ and Lighting services by Freestyle entertainment which was also voted 2010 Knots Pick! The cake was designed by the grooms sister, Addicted to Sugar in which this wedding inspired her to start her own cake business, pewter accents on each tier with the same brooch the bride wore on her gown and a monogram "G" that was also accented on the dance floor. The bride and groom exited the wedding with sparklers and a ride in the classic bentley to their Bakersfield home where they are now beginning the most important chapters in their lives. HDM captured the entire day from beginning to end and all the in-betweens! Bakersfield's top wedding vendors were part of this special day, all are highly recomended! WHAT A WEDDING!! :)

what's beautiful.
Hi Donniee! thank you! It was about 8 months but to be honest if you pick really good vendors then you are all set and taken care of!! everything got booked the month we were engaged and things were finalized once October was approaching... A few things I did on my own but like I said if you pick top vendors in your area then there are no worries with having to plan every single second of every month! If you finalize things before your wedding say 2 months before I think thats the way to go because styles change every month but of course get your important things booked well in advance like the venue,dress/bm dresses, photography/videography,Dj etc. But once your day is around the corner you will know exactly how you want things. If you have any more questions just let me know! I wish you a very happy wedding day! I am sure you will have an amazing day and let me tell you its an amazing feeling one you will never forget!! Take care!! :) Jeana

Hi there! We had two cameras rolling and AJ had a microphone as well as the judge wired to their jackets etc the dj provided those and they linked it to the video etc.. I hope this answered your questionif there's anything else just let me know best wishes to you and your groomie!!! :)
What a Beautiful Video!!! I teared up and was inspired! One question.. how did you do your own entrance while stating facts of AJ? was it pre recorded or did you have a microphone?? Please share, I'd love to use it for my wedding next year!

You made me cry..... That was beutiful! What a wonderful memory! Congratulations Sherri from Wisconsin
Thank you girls!! It was such an amazing day! And you know what they captured US everything in the video is US and I couldnt have asked for anything more! AJ and I didnt drink at all on our wedding day because we wanted to remember EVERYTHING!! And we do remember everything like when I got up to the alter I whispered to AJ and said "Do you like my dress?' LOL I swear! It was an amazing feeling being a bride and its so much more amazing that I can do this as a profession and help brides every day with their dresses! I literally get married every day! And I love it and after experiencing my own wedding I can share everything with my brides! :) Cheers to Happy brides and Happy marriages!!
This is an awesome video Jeana! What I love most about it is not only how beautiful everything was...but how much fun you guys appear to be having! No one wants to spend that kind of money for a stuffy boring evening! You guys rock!
