Introduction This wedding was designed for a very prominent family that requested both a large and upscale, formal evening wedding. The audience members will consist of family members, friends, other high-profile community leaders and celebrities. The wedding is set to take place outside of the Los Angeles area flying both members of the family to the designated location. Some of the flight cost will vary according to members who live within driving distance. Since both the bride and the groom was involved in the Peace Corps in the Guadalajara, Mexico, we are incorporating a Mexican theme band during the wedding and again at the reception before the dance.
