Muckenthaler Mansion Burgundy Wedding | Fullerton, California // Vanessa + Anthony
Vanessa and Anthony’s November wedding was filled with beautiful colors, spectacular décor, and so much love! Vanessa got ready at Fullerton Marriott and the rest of their awesome wedding day took place at Muckenthaler Mansion in Fullerton, CA. They were going for a style displaying modern romance with a rustic touch. With lovely burgundy, mauve, blush, and rose gold, their palette came together beautifully. The look of their geometric lanterns, mercury glass, and chalkboard signs brought so much character to their venue too! They also included some DIY elements to their day – Anthony painted the crates, Vanessa spray-painted their table numbers and created the menu/thank you card, and Anthony’s sister did their place cards. Vanessa’s chiffon lace ball gown looked gorgeous paired with her garden style bouquet of greenery, and she looked incredible! Her ladies also sported a mismatched bridesmaid look and all looked gorgeous!
Vanessa decided to have a First Look with her dad, and it was so emotional – there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. She and Anthony wrote their own vows and surprised each other with them during the ceremony. I also have to mention their dapper Yorkie puppy, Gizmo! He definitely stole the show in his cute little suit! I was obsessed with their use of music during their wedding day too. Vanessa walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding, which I thought was so unique! They grooved into their Reception to “Starlight” by Muse – another great choice! And their First Dance song, “Baby, I’m Yours” by Arctic Monkeys, was the perfect song to set the mood.
As a couple, Vanessa and Anthony love going to Disneyland, finding new restaurants, traveling, going to concerts, catching movies in the theater, and spending their rare lazy days together. They were both so excited to finally get married and have a fun night with all of their family and friends and seeing everything come together! For their Honeymoon, they’ll be going to Italy or Costa Rica! You can also hear all about their amazing proposal story here, and see their gorgeous newlywed photos! As far as their advice for future couples: Anthony simply said “Don’t wait ten years!” and Vanessa said “Don’t stress over the small details, no one will remember what color the vases were, they will just remember how much fun they had!” I couldn’t agree more!
P.S. Vanessa is also an amazing Makeup Artist! She did her own makeup on her wedding day too - check out her bold, beautiful, and natural looks at Vanessa Fiorella!
