Despite popular opinion, it isn’t always sunny and perfect here in Southern California and things don’t always go as planned. Charles and Lacey discovered this truth first-hand. They had a beautiful event planned at the Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook with an outdoor ceremony and a tented reception under the stars. Unfortunately Mother Nature didn’t exactly cooperate, torrential rains flooded the grounds and sent their day into, in Lacey’s own words, “total chaos”. Well, thanks to the team work of the entire wedding party and everyone else involved, a plan B was improvised and orchestrated brilliantly. The ceremony was held at the nearby Fallbrook Presbyterian Church and the reception was relocated indoors to a banquet room at the resort. Despite the rain, change of plans, and minor increase in stress levels, OK, at times, major increase in stress levels, Charles and Lacey’s event really did turn out absolutely wonderful and perfect.

As always, please feel free to leave comments. I love to hear what you think.
