Timeless Meets Contemporary in This Ebell Long Beach Wedding

October 26, 2017 | colleen

Jessell and Andrew’s classic Ebell Long Beach wedding is picture perfect with the timeless style and details. Jessell is as glamorous as ever in her Watters gown and long, loose curls thanks to Jackie Su Artistry. With her groom in a Calvin Klein navy suit, Jessell and Andrew perfectly encompass an elegant and classic look. Adding in some cultural traditions in their wedding ceremony, the two sweethearts truly made their wedding day unique and special to them. All of this goodness was captured by In Frames Photography and DP Weddings.

The Couple:

Jessell and Andrew

The Wedding:

Ebell Long Beach, Long Beach, California

We wanted something timeless and unique. Something that we can look back on 50 years later and say I loved that dress.

There were a lot of important aspects that we considered when planning our wedding. I believe that the ambiance would be the most significant. We were determined to create an atmosphere that was timeless and unique. We wanted our guests to feel elegant and have them escape from reality for the day.

I know it’s inevitable, but don’t stress yourself while planning your wedding. Enjoy and take in the moments you get to share with your fiance – spending time and making decisions together. Don’t worry about having the PERFECT wedding. If you invite people that you both love and choose vendors you can trust – everything will fall into place.

Definitely the character. I didn’t have to worry about hiding any part of the venue. ALL of the details were beautiful, from the bridal suite, to the ceremony space to the cocktail room. We choose decor that enhanced the venue, not hide it.

The most memorable part of the day would have to exchanging our vows. We incorporated meaningful Filipino/Spanish traditions into our ceremony and had the most amazing officiant who carried everything out seamlessly. There were lots of tears and a whole lot of love. I just felt it.

Our photographer, In Frames Photography, was AMAZING. She made us feel SO comfortable, confident, and BEAUTIFUL. It really shows in the photos. We didn’t feel awkward at all! I felt like we’ve known her for forever!
