*edit: added slideshow at end of post*

May and Jeffrey actually got married a little while back, but they wanted to throw a party for their friends and family to celebrate.  And throw a party they did!  May & Jeff had a gorgeous cocktail hour and reception at the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel, complete with a tango for their first dance, four dress changes, some hilarious games, and hands-down the best 3-D slideshow I’ve ever seen (created by Imacron…you should definitely check out their work).

A special thanks to Paula Laskelle of Champagne Taste who did an amazing job of coordinating the event.  Prior to that day, she did a great job of making sure I had all the details I needed, and throughout the day she was wonderful in making sure everyone and everything was where they needed to be.  Also, thanks to Johann for shooting with me that day.

Since I’m not quite done with the slideshow, I’m posting a few extra pictures for you all to enjoy!

May had lots of jewelry inside these cute little boxes.

Loved the big bow on the back of her dress.

All the flower arrangements were gorgeous!
