All You Need Is Love...And A Little Help From Your Family

The entire family was involved in making this wedding celebration special. Adela Quinones & Cody Steffani said their vows on the beach over the Labor Day weekend.

This DIY project started in Santa Cruz at the Davenport Landing Beach. The following day was the reception at the bride's employment; Verona's Italian Restaurant in Modesto. All the desserts (and there were many) were donated by family members, even the tiered cakes that were the centerpieces were made by friends. All the flowers, decorations, place settings and chair covers were all donated by family.

Upon arriving to each destination, the family, as well as the bride and groom, frantically put things together. It was a pure group effort. The photographer, was the only vendor they actually hired. The venue that catered was the brides employment and, of course, licensing for the use of the beach.
