Most people do not meet their future spouse while walking to class; however, Tina Boskovich and Kevin Jones did. They were introduced to each other in college by a mutual friend, and their love story began. As time passed, Kevin was ready to propose to his sweetheart. While hiking in Yosemite, he surprised Tina with a gorgeous engagement ring and she happily accepted. 

After ten months of planning their dream wedding, the couple hosted a gorgeous summer fête in Los Angeles, California. Considering the season of their wedding date, as well as their desire for a traditional style, they chose a light palette featuring white and off-white hues. “We wanted a very clean and fresh summer look,” the bride tells. The evening began with a religious ceremony to honor the faith of Tina’s family. “My family is Catholic, so it was important to them that we got married in a Catholic church with a full mass,” she explains. Photographer Laurie Bailey captured beautiful moments of the ceremony, as well as the stylish reception.

From the low centerpieces to the design of the nosegays, white blooms were a significant element of the wedding décor. “The flowers were a combination of white roses and other white flowers with greenery accents,” Tina describes. This aesthetic was also present in the couple’s five-tier confection, which showcased a bundle of fresh white roses cascading down each layer. The lovely blooms were a perfect complement for the openness of the locale, the verdant lawn, and the dazzling chandeliers that were suspended from the tent. The bright lights illuminated the dance floor as loved ones gave heartfelt speeches and watched the couple sway to Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s classic hit, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Tina confides that the first dance was the most memorable part of her special day. 

The bride also assures that, regardless of any mishaps, every aspect of the wedding will still come together. “It all works out,” she encourages. “You have to look at the day as a whole and be happy with your choices.”
