Shawna + Alain | Paradise Gardens Wedding

Shawna and Alain were supposed to have a big celebration last year to celebrate their 10 years of marriage.  But, Alain ended up being deployed to Afghanistan, so we celebrated their 11 years of marriage, and 2 kids, at Paradise Gardens in Oceanside!

A couple of things really stood out to me.  Shawna really wanted good food, and her guests to have lots of fun.  And really, the whole afternoon and evening was just that.  Everyone loved the photo booth, the food by Slice of Heaven Catering was delicious, a rocking dance floor, and they even had Party Donuts and a Haagen-Dazs Station.  Yum!  Victor with Can-Do is always a fabulous DJ, and all around great guy.  The lovely flowers are by Sweet Flowers.  And I especially have to thank Alice of Paradise Gardens and Darica of SD Traditions for the smoothness and ease of the day.

Shawna and Alain, I’m so thrilled to have been a part of such a wonderful celebration.  You have such a beautiful family, and you are an example to us all of your support of each other.  Congratulations!

Shawna and Alain saw each other before the ceremony, and they’ve been married 11 years.  BUT, please check out the look on his face, so sweet!
