Write up from Marianne Wilson Photography:
Kelly and Chris Diablo Dormido wedding (a.k.a. Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve wedding, a.k.a Ahmanson Ranch wedding does anyone know what that place is actually called nowadays? We digress ) was a perfect example of just how awesome a wedding can be, even when it is a little cloudy. As we mentioned in our post of their engagement session, Kelly and Chris are diehard fans of UCLA and USC, which makes them an unlikely, but remarkably adorable match. The day was filled with laughter and there was a running joke about Chris and his mom being criers, so there were more touching moments happening than we can possibly cram into single blog post.
Emotional wedding days are awesome, but what made this wedding over-the-top, face-melting-awesomeness were some surprises that their families had up their sleeves. During dinner, Kellys mom arranged for the UCLA Spirit Team and mascot to show up! Not to be outdone, later in the reception Chris mom arranged for the USC marching band to show up and play a few songs! Both were total surprises to Kelly and Chris and both were SO much fun!Florals: Kelly Bockoven | Caterer: Kitchen 12000 | Cake: Susie Cakes | Rentals: A Rental Connection | Furniture Rentals: Salt Buffalo Vintage | DJ: Vox DJs | Lighting: Pacific Event Lighting
