Amy and Wes met through mutual friends at Moonlight Beach. Amy’s friend insisted that she come hang out after she was done with work to “meet her friends from Boston”. Wes was one of those Boston boys. He was originally from California, but had been going to school at Berklee Music School, and came back for a visit. They had an instant connection and ending up talking and hanging out at a casino that night until 2am! Fast forward a few years, Wes knew it was time to propose. He had it all perfectly planned in his head, but not everything went as planned! Amy describes that night: “Wes organized a rental cabin in Big Bear and invited all our best friends, unbeknownst to me. He proposed by the lake, in the dark after a million things had gone wrong that day (tons of traffic, it was a dark secluded area, several people almost ruining the surprise, me broken out in an allergic reaction of hives and SUPER grumpy about all the secrets, I was in sweatpants, etc. etc.). After all of that, he drove us to the house we were staying at for the weekend and all our friends slowly started trickling in to celebrate all night. It was great!”
Amy and Wes held quite the party for their wedding. It was a very DIY event on top of it all! They wed at a family friends private estate on the cliffs of Del Mar. Their coordinator took over the job of florist when she heard Amy and her friends originally planned on doing it themselves the night before the wedding. Melissa (their coordinator) told her not to worry and she would take care of it all. The flowers were GORGEOUS! Amy’s mom also helped with some of the catering, so did a lot of the appetizers and their cake! Even having friends as their MC/officiant, the whole day seemed like a family affair. But if you were to ask everyone what the highlight of the wedding was, they would probably say the band! A majority of Wes’s friends are musicians, GREAT musicians. The band played hits all across the board, and the guests were dancing the night away, singing along. It was a fun filled day. Congrats to Amy and Wes!
