The components that make up a wedding are each important; however, the two that are most important in my eyes are the music and the photographer. The different types of music played at a wedding set the mood for the entire night. Simply put, if there is great music playing, everyone will have a great time. Meanwhile, you need a photographer to capture all the memories made. Because our wedding is multi-cultural, we wanted to find the perfect DJ so that both sides of the family could enjoy what was playing.
Wedding photography has been evolving and becoming more popular throughout the years. Photographers and couples are coming up with new ideas to differentiate and personalize their photos. We recently came across an article in Huffington Post about photographer Jeffrey Lewis Bennett who has been creating wedding GIFs.

Arby and Anita recently got engaged at the Beautiful Pelican Hill Resort. Arby went the extra mile to plan an amazing, surprise proposal for Anita. We interviewed Arby and Anita about their engagement and fell in love with their story. We are very excited to share all the details about this picture-perfect, romantic proposal.
Here’s what Arby had to say…
"Without a doubt I’ve always known I would propose to Anita at The Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach. Not only is it the most elegant resort in California, but also it was nearby the shore where we had our first date, and that’s where I wanted to pop the question exactly two years after. I knew I wanted it to be at a very special location and Newport Beach was the perfect place. I always knew Anita liked the cushioned square look, and after months of researching I found what looked like the perfect ring and most flawless diamond. The whole planning took about six months to finalize and complete.
