Catherine and Josh found a beautiful paradise on their wedding day at the San Luis Obispo venue, SLO Brew. Every design element echoed the couple's strong-family values and the Groom's Hawaiian culture to create a heartfelt experience they can continue to cherish for a lifetime. The vibrant tropical arrangements by Paso Robles Florist, The Flower Lady, featured by the bridal party, around the ceremony venue, and even at the reception were astonishing. Central Coast Wedding Coordinator, Pink Champagne Celebrations, successfully flooded every inch of the wedding with their tropical Hawaiian theme. Luckily for you, it was all captured for you by California Photographer, Patrick Ang.

Their Love Story
"We met in high school, and while we didn't stay together long after Josh's graduation, we remained friends for many years. In 2012 after 8 years, we reconnected and became instantly inseparable. On our first "date," we both left feeling that this was it, this was HOME. We moved in together in 2016, and in January 2021, Josh got on one knee, and our wedding journey began."
Their Wedding Inspiration
"We are both artistic and a little weird, so we wanted the wedding to be a reflection of what made our love so special and what's unique about each of us. We wanted to honor Catherine's Dad and Josh's family's heritage, and above all, we wanted to create an inclusive and memorable experience for our families and friends."
The Color Palette
"Deep emerald green, terracotta, peach, dusty rose, and dark mauve"
"Driving and riding in my Dad's 1968 Pontiac Firebird - that car was central to so many milestones growing up. I was so thrilled it could be a part of our special day. Hosting our wedding party at SLO Brew Lofts so that everyone could be together as we got ready and we could all come back together afterward."
The Memorable Moments
"Taking golden hour photos at the beach because it's our favorite place to be and we are most at home with our shoes off and walking along the shoreline."
Their Wedding Planning Advice
"Focus on the stuff that means the most to you. Those are going to be the memories and the moments that last. There's so little time to do everything, so don't worry about what you're "supposed to do" and do what's genuine and meaningful to you."
