Timothy and Lillian Raeck’s
WEDDING DATE: February 24th 2018
WEDDING LOCATION: Buena Vista Point Avalon on Catalina Island
HOW AND WHERE DID YOU MEET:
We met at a mutual friends house. He was outside having a smoke and I asked if he had an extra. We started talking and have been inseparable ever since.
WEDDING THEME: 1950s
THE WEDDING DAY:
Tymo had the idea of getting married on the gorgeous Catalina Island. It was one of his best ideas. Doing this, however, turned our wedding into a destination wedding so our close friends (who were able) went over with us and spent the weekend on Avalon. When we arrived we met with the Mayor, who also performed our ceremony, and she took us to Buena Vista Point. It was breath taking and the perfect place for the ceremony over looking the ocean. In the 1920s, there was a tea house that was there but all that is left now are steps, this arch way and some ruins of the building. It was perfect.
We said our vows as the sunset and made our way to the Lobster Shack to eat then off to the Tiki Bar where we danced the night away! That weekend was the best weekend of our lives. We couldn’t have planned it any better!

TIPS FOR FUTURE BADASS BRIDES:
You don’t need to have a large wedding to have fun. We had a small group of close friends and it was the time of our lives!
Its fun to make your own flowers, table pieces, etc. You can show your own personality and it saves you so much money.
Don’t panic if something goes wrong the day or week of the wedding! ALWAYS HAVE A COUPLE BACK UP PLANS!
If you can….do a destination wedding…it’s so much fun and you get a small vaca out of it 😉
Remember this is your big day and you should have fun planning it. <3
If you are ever in the Los Angeles area…you need to visit Catalina Island!!
