Shira & Sean’s Wedding at the Montage

We were so excited to create Shira and Sean’s wedding at the new Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. Shira had an amazing 10 beautiful bridesmaids . A challenge for the photographers to wrangle the entire party into a single photo.  They were married on the terrace and  the reception was in the Marquesa ballroom.  We created centerpieces with butter yellow silk covered boxes filled with bright yellow calla lilies, yellow roses, peonies, and hydrangeas. The tops of the centerpieces were orchid covered willow branches arching over the tables with crystal garlands swagged overhead.

Miki and Sonja photography captured the day beautifully. Thank you  for sharing the beautiful photos.

Wedding planner, Jaimie Hastings of Churchill House VIP Events, was brought on board and was a pleasure to work with.

Samantha and Ian Greystone Mansion Wedding

Last October, Samantha and Ian had a beautiful wedding at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. Samantha, is an event coordinator herself but wisely chose to use Angel to coordinate the day so she could be in the moment.  It was my first experience working with wedding coordinator, Angel Swanson, and wedding photographers extraordinaire , Cat and Adi, of Next Exit Photography. What a great team!

One of Samantha’s special requests for the day, was to include a family heirloom brooch to her bouquet. Fulfilling this request was so meaningful to me knowing what the brooch meant to Samantha.The courtyard reception was decked out in dark wood tables with linen runners.We filled silver Julep cups and chalices with creamy Vendela roses, green hydrangea, white lisyanthus, and sprigs of lavender and rosemary. This simple and gorgeous Estate-picked garden look was perfect for the setting.
