If you haven’t totally fallen head over heels in love with Joana and Jelani then check your pulse because these two are sweeter than sno cones on a hot August day. Prepare yourselves folks – if you’re not careful you just may find that these two will charm your socks off and then melt your hearts because they’re just that dang lovable in a fabulous chic package. Their clean, modern wedding at L’Auberge Del Mar was overflowing with style and a big thanks goes out to Jennifer Cole Florals for the mounds of gorgeous orchids that filled every space of the classy seaside reception. Ali and her brilliant team of coordinators left no detail unnoticed and kept the day moving flawlessly as usual. I absolutely love the fabulous girls that make up the wedding team at L’Auberge – they’re pretty much my heros!
But enough about the incredible folks behind scenes. Jelani and Joana were tearing it up in front of our cameras after their ocean view ceremony.
Seriously – how does a girl get so stinkin’ gorgeous?
And how does a guy get so stinkin’ classy? Love these two!
The reception had plenty of glitz to satisfy any girl’s taste for glam.
Dinner was full of impeccable food, close friends, and heartfelt moments.
Best man speeches are always some of the most surprising and meaningful moments at weddings and this one was no exception. I think every single person felt this moment at their core. It was the perfect way to end dinner before heading downstairs to dance the night away!
Jelani and Joana: Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for welcoming us into your day and for putting up with all of our crazy excitement. You guys seriously have something deep and special and it was such an honor to walk into your relationship and to capture your hearts for each other and for your friends and family. You two rock!
