Real Bride Kristine( Placencia) Ornelias

Meet Real Bride Kristine and her hubby Joshua!

Kristine was nice enough to send us both photos as well as a lovely paragraph about her wedding, we'll keep her own words here since only she can tell her story best!

"...My name is Kristine and I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton and currently work for a Financial Management firm in Orange. My husband's name is Joshua and we've been together for 7 years. Our wedding day was May 8, 2010. 200 guests attended our special day which started with a very traditional Catholic ceremony. Our reception was at a beautiful venue called Summit House in Fullerton. Our colors were purples, blues and ivory. We had beautiful centerpieces and bouquets that consisted of bright hydrangeas, roses and lilies. One of the highlights of the evening was our favor table that had jars full of yummy candies. It was such a hit with our guests that there were huge lines for it! In addition to our wedding cake, we had a Lakers cake because my husband and I are huge Laker fans. Everyone thought it was cute and definitely represented us. The whole night was amazing, I couldn't have asked for a more perfect husband and wedding!
My veil was absolutely gorgeous and everyone kept complimenting it throughout the night. I attached some photos from the ceremony and reception,
the photos were taken by Edna Eudave..."

Kristine wore the CastleBride birdcage veil KIERA from our Haute Couture Collection.
