Recent college grads Cole Carlisle and Gabriel Delozier are a creative couple with big ideas, great sales skills and a desire to create a personal story at their wedding.
That’s when they turned to photographer Brandy Woo of Wink Productions, hairstylist Nick White, barber Trent Cagle and DJ Bongo from Big Jewels Entertainment. Together, they created a unique and special custom wedding experience that’s a lot like nothing you’ve ever seen before: the wedding of a lifetime, including diamond service, an ocean view wedding and outdoor skydiving.
The event began in the afternoon when Woo captured the joy of the couple sealing their commitment with an emotional kiss in front of 500 guests including amazing props that were created by Woo and her team. That included a larger-than-life heart made out of 40 roses and feathers, and a life-sized robot that led the couple down the aisle, as well as firecrackers on each of the tables.
“It’s one of my favorite projects I’ve worked on,” said Woo. “Everyone was in awe of the balloons — you could just feel them when they would fly off the table. Then as soon as we parted ways after the ceremony, Bongo’s DJ sound system exploded. It’s kind of like when they perform a high-energy show at a football stadium, and their audience erupts.”
But the excitement didn’t stop there. The newlyweds broke away from the crowd and ascended to an outdoor wedding with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. Once again, Woo’s creativity and Woo’s sales team came together to create a very unique and custom experience that doesn’t happen every day.
It didn’t stop there either. Tucked away in the back, Woo kept the party going with stunning costumes for the bridesmaids and groomsmen, similar to those for a theater production. White and Delozier crafted the bride’s dress and her gown, while bohemian florist Gina was in charge of the reception favors. And, in true event fashion, a DJ from the OC craft beer brewery Miller’s Cove played a recording of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
However, the hype was palpable as everyone hung around the dance floor and toasted to the day. The only thing missing was a mountain of white flour, but with 300 lucky guests at the wedding, that never happened.
