Steven & Van Treasure a Wonderful Video of their Magical Night

Wedding: Catta Verdera Country Club, Lincoln, California
Date: Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Written by Allison Hopkins for Très Fabu Event Planning and Design

The last weekend in October wasn’t about costumes and trick-or-treaters for Steven and Van…it was about creating memories that would last a lifetime. Luckily, the entire evening was captured perfectly by videographer Phill Sheffield of Phillip Alan Films.

As the video shows, it was a beautiful outside ceremony followed by an amazing inside reception at the country club. The couple had been determined to keep the ceremony outside (while the forecast promised rain) and were both completely full of grace as the showers began. They didn't skip a beat.

"It truly showed who they really are as individuals and people," says Debra Hiebèrt of Très Fabu. "If more individuals were like Van and Steven, this world would be truly amazing! Not everyone would treat the ceremony portion as they did."

Among the evening’s events, Reverend Nesbitt left the couple with courageous words of wisdom, and Steven’s father took a few moments during the reception to congratulate his son and welcome his new daughter-in-law.

“We are so proud of you. You have grown into a wonderful man and we are so happy that you met this beautiful, smart, respectful young lady. Van, you are like a daughter to us. We are glad that you are now part of the family. We love you both very much.”

As George Sans so easily states, “There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.”
