How did you meet?
Went to the same high school and never knew each other. Then met because we started working at the same company.

Where was your ceremony held and why did you pick this site?
Maison Lafitte, we loved the beautiful house and grounds. The front steps were the perfect backdrop for our vows. Loved being able to get married in the front and walk to the gorgeous pavilion for the reception. Loved the layout and indoor/outdoor options for a LA December night

Hot chocolate bar
Sparkler send off
Christmas tree

Who was your baker, what was the flavor of your cake? Was it delicious?!
Delicious! Cocoa Bean bakery - almond cake with a raspberry and cream cheese filling.

Did you do a first look? If so how did you feel about it? If not, do you wish you had?
Loved it! Loved it being private and having a genuine moment

Did you have a coordinator or did you plan everything yourself? If you didn't have a coordinator any advice for brides planning their own wedding?
Did it myself - work on booking your main vendors first and then start to look at the details. Do not get overwhelmed by the details in the beginning. They will fall into place!
