Leanne and Michael hold their spring wedding in Long Beach.
Making a Splash: Joy-Filled and Colorful Wedding at the Colony Palms Hotel
Jenn Liu and Brandon Scott created a wedding that was a celebration of everyone and everything they love, from friends and family to food and music. Their unique celebration began when Jenn’s father walked her down the aisle as her friends sang a rendition of the Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows.” By the time she reached Brandon, all the guests were singing along. That moment set the tone for the night, as did the lush and modern setting of the Colony Palms Hotel. To let the hotel’s natural ambiance shine, the couple decided to forgo using flowers in their decor and instead let their personalities take the lead. For table names, they incorporated pictures of their adventures and the cities they have visited, and for a unique twist on escort cards, guests chose either an orange or a lemon with the name of a city to dictate where they were seated. Jenn and Brandon took the dance floor for their first dance to a crowd-pleasing mashup of love songs that reflected their relationship. And if that wasn’t enough, the duo even sang songs to each other that they had written along with the help of their friends. The night ended with a splash, as the newlyweds dove into the pool, accompanied by their wedding planner, Percy Sales, the guests—and even the photographer!
