Real Wedding : an intimate and vintage DIY wedding in Long Beach

So happy to share the wedding of Diana and Derrick with you today. Just wait until you see Diana's Poetic Licence shoes - LOVE THEM!!!!!! And, her wedding dress is amazing - it's a Sue Wong dress that Diana bought at Saks, so it's not a traditional wedding dress from a wedding boutique. Don't you just love the ruffles? Most of the wedding decorations were done by the bride and groom with the help of her bridesmaid. The homemade details of the wedding were captured perfectly by Anapaul Photographers. The venue for the ceremony was Cooper Arms in Long Beach and the reception was held at Utopia Restaurant in Long Beach.

Diana and Derrick sure know how to have fun - their wedding was full of music, singing and dancing. They even had a musician lead their guests in a procession down the street to their ceremony location. And, when the ceremony ended, they danced and sang "All Night Long" with their guests. And, the danced the Rhumba for their last dance.

I love the photo below - what an amazing photo {great lighting}. I could definitely see this one as a canvas print for Diana and Derricks home.

Thank you so much Paul and Anmarie for sharing this amazing wedding with my readers today. To see more photos from the wedding of Diana and Derrick, please click here. And, to see more from Anapaul Photographers, please visit their blogsite.
