Glitzy Hollywood-Inspired Orange County Wedding

Sunday, May 18 2014

Holly and Brent probably crossed paths hundreds of times during their 4-years at Texas Christian University before being properly introduced at a young alumni event in 2005. After hearing how badly Holly wanted to attend the upcoming Dallas Mavericks playoff game, Brent managed to get his hands on two tickets and surprised her that night with an invitation to join him. From that night forward, the two were inseperable and Brent proposed 7 years later on their rooftop deck which he had decorated with soft hanging lights, candles, and champagne. 

The Dallas couple decided on a destination wedding and the beautiful Pelican Hill Resort in Orange County was at the top of their list. They flew out to visit the property and, after seeing the vast wedding lawn and view of the Pacific Ocean, knew it was the right place. Holly's affinity for rich, jewel-tones and bling was the inspiration behind their Hollywood Glamour-themed wedding. She worked with Kerrie Underhill of Platinum Weddings by Kerrie to design a sophisticated outdoor ceremony that was followed by a fun, glitzy reception. Deep purple was the color of the night and it accentuated Holly's Swarovski-embellished Ines Di Santo gown flawlessly.

The couple wanted all of their guests to feel like they were on a beach vacation and made sure that the reception was filled with great music, decadant food, and non-stop dancing. Their stunning 3-layer cake was surrounded by luscious blue and purple hydrangeas, adorned with crystals, and suspended from the ceiling in a showstopping display created by Pelican Hill's pastry chef. The night was a spectacle of Hollywood glitz and glamour from start to finish and gorgeously represented Holly and Brent's bright, shining diamond of love.
