When Shea reached out to me asking if I had last minute availability after Christmas for her elopement with Air Force Lieutenant Braden Durian, I knew I had to make it happen for them! They were only going to be in Southern California for a short trip to visit family and not knowing when they’d be able to visit again, they wanted to make it happen while they could be surrounded by their closest family and friends. I worked with Shea to find a venue that would be dreamy, romantic, and allow an intimate ceremony. Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim Hills proved to be the perfect setting! Braden and Shea wanted to keep it simple, focusing only on outfits, rings, and flowers for the ceremony. They invited just a few close family members and friends then joined a larger dinner party later in the evening to dance the night away! It was truly a special celebration!
