When you are in love your perspective on time changes. When you are apart, a moment seems like a lifetime, yet when you are together, hours seem like minutes. And when you have been blessed to find true love, your time together never gets old. Joel and Abbygail have been together for twelve years and counting and their love still runs strong and true. Twelve years of happy memories included their first meeting, their first date and all the ones afterwards, including the day when Joel got down on one knee in front of the castle at Disneyland and asked Abbygail to be the princess in their love story!
It wasn’t long before the day came for this couple to say “I do,” and be one forevermore! Joel and his groomsmen arrived at the Padre Hotel in downtown Bakersfield where they dressed in their handsome grey suits from Friar Tux, complete with purple ties and handkerchiefs smartly folded and tucked in their pockets. Joel and his groomsmen wore colorful superhero-themed socks underneath sneakers! But that’s not all, while the groomsmen wore shiny gold tie clips, Joel wore a special Dallas Cowboys tie clip representing his favorite sports team.
Meanwhile, Abbygail and her bridesmaids were not far away preparing for all the events of the big day! The bridesmaids adorned themselves in light flowery dresses in varying shades of purple, complementing the spring bouquets of flowers they carried. Abbygail was all smiles as her mom helped her into her elegant lace-covered wedding gown from Ladies and Gents Bridal. Itzel from Ilashdolls Makeup added the finishing touches to help this bride look her best for her husband-to-be. Tying the spring theme together was flowers from the rose wreaths on the ladies’ heads to the matching boutonnieres on the gentlemen’s suit coats to the ceremony and the reception decorations. And lovely arrangements from House of Flowers could be seen at every turn.
The ceremony took place at the Italian Heritage Dante Hall. Every moment was precious from the time the father and mother of the bride led her down a path of rose petals to Joel and Abbygail’s first kiss as husband and wife. The wedding guests didn’t have far to travel to the reception which was held at the same venue as the ceremony. Joel and Abbygail had a team of talented vendors including Boone and Stacie Weddings who were there to capture every exquisite detail carefully arranged and made just right by Fairy Godmother, who also made certain that this was a day full of beautiful and happy memories. NV Catering provided a delicious meal, and afterwards the guests feasted on donuts from Krispy Kreme. The newlyweds cut into their lovely two-tiered cake complete with a custom topper beautifully handcrafted by Tastries Bakery. Freestyle Event Services was there, not missing a beat as the celebration continued on into the evening. Family and friends ate, danced, laughed, and made memories in the Bakersfield Photo Booth. And of course, Evermoore Films was there all throughout the day capturing moments of fun as Joel and Abbygail celebrated their first day as husband and wife!
