Real Wedding: Shay and Broc

For Shay and Broc's August wedding, the plan was simple: 1. Soak up the sun while exchanging vows. 2. Keep the decor subtle yet elegant. 3. Unite their family and friends with a rockin' party!  The couples color palette consisted of celedon, black and white, set amidst the Ivy Hotels orange accents. Live music from Wayne Foster Entertainment was highlighted by strings of AC/DC's "Back in Black" during the groomsmens processional and Wayne Fosters version of "Put A Ring On It" by Beyonce  during the reception. Shay and Broc met while attending dental school at UCLA. Shay is a pediatric dentist and Broc is a Navy dentist who is currently deployed to Afghanistan. During the reception the bestman honored our military men and women in his toast and surprised the bride by reading a tearful letter from her brother serving in Iraq.
