Congratulations Aguilars!!!!

On December 16th 2009, after 32 intense hours of labor, our "Day of" LOVE team member Emily Aguilar had a healthy baby boy! Brock Diego Aguilar was welcomed into this world at 7:19am, weighing in at 7lbs 13 ounces and measuring 19 inches in length. We could not be more excited to welcome the first baby into our "Day of" LOVE family! Mommy and baby are at home resting comfortably, and even had time to snap a quick picture for a last-minute Christmas card when Brock was only a few days old! Proud papa, Ricardo, was by Emily's side every step of the way and is well on his way to making "dad of the year" :) We give the Aguilar family all our love and support in this new adventure, and can't wait to meet our new little man of the hour! Hopefully everyone is getting some sleep! Welcome Brock!!!

brandy & fred: modern comfort

On a beautiful day this past September 2009, Brandy and Fred tied the knot with their close friends and family at a private residence in Oceanside, CA. The modern style incorporated into this house fit perfectly with Brandy's interior design flare for creativity! The photographers, Josh and Michelle from mi belle photographers, were amazing to work with and shot some of the best pictures I've ever seen! We can not thank them enough for making the trip down to Oceanside and shooting this wedding, especially with Michelle being very pregnant at the time. :) The ceremony was short but oh so sweet, with Pastor Mike's calming and soothing voice guiding the way through their simple ceremony explaining all about this wonderful day, while the bride and groom stood under a beautiful home-made (by one of Fred's friends) arch decorated in elegant calla lilies. After the ceremony guests gathered around the pool to grab a drink and snack on some apps, while the bride and groom took some time to sneak off for a quick photo shoot, even hopping on a vespa for some adorable pictures! After a few drinks everyone retired to the back yard for a dinner under the stars, catered by the delicious and nutritious Naked Cafe. The dancing (with music by Hit it Music) and drinks continued well into the evening, with a quick break for cupcakes from the yummy bakers at BabyCakes to round out the night. Since this was the second wedding in the past year "Day of" LOVE has provided for the Bevilacqua family, we had also been a part of Brandy's brother Matt's wedding to Tiffany last year at La Costa Resort, we felt like part of the family all night sharing another fantastic event with some wonderful people. After the bride and groom said their good-byes and almost all the guests left, it was time for the final clean-up and to say good bye to the lovely house that hosted this amazing event. Until next time Bevilacquas....
