Bride Rachel reports that their theme was a twist on Flaming Hot Cheetos with bright colors and flowers everywhere.
They were so happy with everything and felt that it was truly “OUR wedding and everything we hoped for (even if we didn’t have a vision of it before.)”
The flowers the couple fell in love with were Coral Daises, hydrangeas, roses, blue Delphinium’s, babies breath, Lily’s and lots of green filler leaves.
The bride and groom both agree that the most anticipating and special moment was the ceremony, all of it. But mostly walking down the aisle, which according to the bride:
“we both ugly cried like no other! We didn’t pay attention to anyone in the rows, just each other,
it was such a weird experience, we don’t even remember hearing the music playing.
I was so nervous and it took me (Rachel) half way down the isle to actually look up at him and once I did and I saw him crying,
and this is when felt all of the emotions pour out. This beautiful man who said repeatedly the last year that he “WASN’T” going to cry, cried more than me!
Throughout the ceremony I (Rachel) ended up being quirky and somewhat funny during our vows and he was romantic and emotional,
we completely traded places. It was absolutely unforgettable and standing up there with our family and friends surrounding us
made every penny, tear, stressful night and all of the bickering worth it. Not only that but we both feel so lucky to have had such a wonderful Officiant, Carlos Sales.
He engaged with us and our guests, he walked us through every step of the ceremony and made it personal.”

One of the bride’s favorite ideas for the wedding was take home, break apart centerpieces.
The couple had a vision and couldn’t find our idea anywhere so it was up to them to make it up!
They searched 100’s of stores for affordable rectangular vases that can appear as 1 whole piece and break apart into 4 separate ones.
This way each couple could take a piece of the centerpiece/of our wedding home and keep it.
Not until a trip up to the L.A. Fashion District and bargaining with several store owners did the dream vases fall into their lap.
In the end it was a win-win, our reception centerpieces were beautiful, they didn’t need to purchase party favors, and everyone could leave with a piece of the special day and enjoy the flowers for a week or more.
The table numbers were custom designed for the couple by the Mother of the Groom….so sweet!
The couple has some advice to pass along:
Rachel and Elijah’s love story started with a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos-
so a Flamin’ Hot Chip Bar was the perfect reception midnight snack!
The guilty pleasure since they were both children growing up and during their binge watching Netflix & midnight 7/11 runs is CHIPS.
Spicy chips, they could sit there and eat an entire Family size bag in one sitting!
And if they had lime, Chamoy or Salsa to put on it they were set!
They agreed on their top favorites; Flamin Hot & Limon Cheetos, Chile Limon Lays, Flamin Hot Fritos, Flamin Hot Puffs & Spicy Nacho Doritos. Don’t forget the nacho cheese!
This was probably one of the guests favorite ideas, and it was super affordable! And who doesn’t like chips!?
They also incorporated a few non-spicy chips for our guests who cant stomach the spice.
