Alison & Tony’s Wedding at Valencia Country Club- A Magical Evening Under the Stars

We learned during one of the toasts at Alison & Tony’s reception that the first time Alison met Tony’s family was when she was invited to dinner at their house.  Being the Alison that we know and love, she had to bring a dessert- and it had to be special and homemade.  She chose lemon meringue pie- even though she had never made one before.  I guess what turned out had little resemblance to an actual lemon meringue pie.  Her pie baking skills might not have been evident, but her love for Tony and her dedication to everything she did certainly was. You need only see the look in Tony’s eyes as he admires his bride to know the feelings are reciprocal.  It was a long road to June 11, 2011 and a magical day topped off with a fantasy like reception under the starts at Valencia Country Club- a location close to Alison’s heart as she has worked there.

Hearing this story of the pie during the reception,  we dubbed  their wedding the “Lemon Meringue Wedding” because it really summed everything up- especially with the yellow, white and black theme.  From the hand made backdrop for the ceremony which later did double duty at the reception behind the head table, to the Lemonhead candy favors, there was not a detail that was overlooked in preparing for this day, and so many details were attended to by family and friends who had a vested interest in feeding the perfectionist that we all know as Alison. (check back to our blog from their engagement session)  It was what Alison would do for a friend or family member, so she had legions ready to help her.  I will follow up with another post to showcase the details and the fabulous venue that the new site at Valencia Country Club provides (previously featured in this blog for their recent bridal show).

We know that this evening was just the beginning, and the lesson we learned is that anything worthwhile is worth waiting for, working towards and believing in…because dreams really can come true.  Thank you Alison & Tony for sharing your dream day with us and we look forward to sharing many more wonderful times in your future.
