real wedding shenanigans: shannon & aric

Shannon and Aric held an intimate, family-only wedding ceremony at the gazeebo at Heisler Park in beautiful Laguna Beach. Two weeks later, the newlyweds hosted a rockin' reception at the Soka University Black Box Theatre. Shannon designed a vintage, jazz-themed fete inspired by peacock feathers, jewel tones, and New Orleans. As a jazz singer herself, the bride serenaded guests with a 17-piece big band backing her, creating an old school jazz club ambience.
