Featured Wedding~Hazel & Alan Chuop

Married September 24, 2016

Hazel and Alan’s ceremony was held at St. Joseph’s Church in Modesto, California, and the reception followed at The Century in Downtown Modesto. As soon as Hazel saw the venue, she knew that it would match the theme that she had in mind: Rustic Romance.
Putting her own flair on the theme, Hazel included succulents into her bouquet of ivory and pink roses and hydrangeas as well as in the men’s boutonnières. Her bridesmaids were dressed in sea foam green chiffon, which offset the bride’s stunning wedding gown: a tulle ballgown with a slight cap sleeve, beaded illusion back and a gorgeous cathedral-length veil.

At the reception, the room was decorated with tall, gold candelabras with ivory hydrangeas and pink roses. The couple was thrilled with their beautiful ceremony and reception and knew that because they had kept faith in one another and in God, they were truly blessed.

Courtnie & Dominick Betancourt

Married July 13, 2014View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-07-13-courtnie--dominic

Dominick and Courtnie spent a romantic Valentine’s Day in San Francisco,  while under the stars at Twin Peaks Dominick proposed. Courtnie and her mother started the planning immediately.

After touring several venues, The River Mill met the couples vision. The combination of the beautiful grounds,  Roasting Room with the fireplace, and the amenities included made their decision simple.

Courtnie wished for warm colors and decided to continue the romantic feel by encompassing a candlelit ceremony in front of the grand fireplace. With this theme in mind, the groom and groomsmen opted for a classic bow tie tuxedo and the bridesmaids in an espresso floor length chiffon gown.View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-07-13-courtnie--dominic

“Most importantly I wanted to keep my look timeless,” explained Courtnie. Working with her make-up artist, Jocelyn to create this look was simple. Selecting a bold red lip color with the simplicity of her gown and hair style was the exact look she desired. Overall, the entire wedding came together as expected.View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-07-13-courtnie--dominic

Vanessa & Zac Swanson

Married May 31, 2014View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-05-31-zac--vanessa-600
The real story began December 2008 at the City of Riverbank’s Benefit Faire where Zac and Vanessa met for the first time. After they exchanged a few rounds of playful eye contact and flirty smiles, with a little help from his fellow fire fighters Zac finally got the nerve to ask Vanessa for her phone number. Vanessa tried playing hard to get and said she could not get calls at work.  After another attempt, Vanessa agreed to meet Zac at the station when she got off work.  She kept her word and showed up at the station, and after a quick conversation, Vanessa finally gave in and gave Zac her number.View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-05-31-zac--vanessa-600

After Vanessa graduated college in 2011, she became very antsy about the next steps in their relationship. Zac assured Vanessa things would progress, however he wanted to make sure Vanessa was settled into her new job before they mentioned the topic of marriage. They had already purchased a home one year prior and Vanessa was ready. Towards the end of the 2012 fire season Zac had Vanessa convinced the proposal was not going to happen that year.

Everyone in attendance knew it was the proposal night, with the exception of Vanessa. Vanessa’s first clue should have been that Zac agreed to go to the party with her as Mickey and Minnie Mouse.View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-05-31-zac--vanessa-600
The party began normally, with a live band performing and a rowdy bunch of partygoers.  During the bands break, the lead singer performed a mini magic show. During the last trick of the show, the whole crowd gathered around watching as the acting magician approached Vanessa carrying a covered metal pan; the same metal pan that earlier contained a ball of fire and a fake snake. Vanessa was shocked and backed up in fear.    After a few moments, out from under the lid of the metal pan, Vanessa’s beautiful Engagement ring was revealed.   Zac grabbed the ring, got down on one knee and popped the question. After Vanessa stopped shaking, the lead singer asked Vanessa for her response…she said yes!

I would get so annoyed because I truly did not know what I wanted, other than not country chic,” Vanessa explained. “I wanted to be different and unique and be able to incorporate things that were “us”.”View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-05-31-zac--vanessa-600

Vanessa knew she wanted purple as her wedding color, but it wasn’t until after she found her chalkboard stationary on ETSY.com that she felt inspired and the details would come together.

Spending time together during their wedding day was important to the couple and they knew they  wanted to see each other before the ceremony. Vanessa thought the balloon reveal would be a fun way to get a sneak peak of each other.  “The emotion of seeing each other for the first time was great and the balloons and the wind gave it a silly twist,”said Vanessa. “The day wouldn’t have been the same without an appearance from our Pomeranian, Stooge in his purple polka dotted bow tie. Everything turned out so perfect, better than we ever imagined. We had a fabulous bridal party, supportive parents, great friends and amazing vendors.”View More: http://koriandjared.pass.us/2014-05-31-zac--vanessa-600

The First Look

Love usually begins with a first look, a second glance, and then lingering eye contact. A wedding day normally begins with the same. The bride steps out in that first moment to audible gasps from her partner. The couple rounds corners to catch the first glimpse of one another before their ceremony begins.

Each glance is filtered through love and caring. Without words they show their guests how committed they are to cherishing the relationship for life. For a suspended moment
in time, the focus is exactly where it should be: on each other.
We’ve gathered some of our favorite moments captured by some of our BCM premier photographers and as always, congratulations to the newly married couples featured. For more on our favorite “First Looks” visit us at BridalCoutureMag.com.
