Casa de Perrin provided navy plates that contrasted beautifully against silver chargers and crystal glassware while black linen provided by La Tavola lined the tabletops. Lounge areas featured tufted sofas and chairs in charcoal, grey, and brown provided by Found Vintage Rentals. The couple chose an all-white four-tiered cake adorned with succulents. As nightfall came the reception became even more magical. String lighting, twinkle lights, and crystal chandeliers illuminated the reception area.

Raquel & Noah | A Blush Beverly Hills Hotel Wedding

By | Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

Raquel and Noah had a beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel wedding planned by Marketa Events. Their ceremony took place indoors where RCD Dancefloor installed a glossy aisle that led to a gorgeous lush chuppah constructed of ivory florals and greenery. The couple’s family and friends watched as the two become one. After our happy couple tied the knot, the celebration moved to the ballroom, transformed by lighting and stunning design and decor. We washed the reception area in blush lighting accenting the heightened floral centerpieces by Mark’s Garden adorned on round table tops. Centerpieces sat in floating vases and consisted of blush, lavender and ivory florals. A timeless two-tiered all white cake by Delice Bakery sat beautifully atop a table adorned with greenery and florals. The newlyweds and their guests danced the night away listening to the sounds of Simcha Orchestra and Laurie Bailey Photography was there to capture every special moment.

Erika and  Jonathan had a magical Fairmont Grand Del Mar Wedding planned by International Event Company.

Boho Beachside Wedding Featured On PopSugar

By | Press, Uncategorized, Wedding Inspiration, Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

This relaxed boho beachside wedding planned by Wink Weddings has been featured on PopSugar!

“When you look back on the most memorable weddings you’ve attended, you’re less likely to recall minor things like the food and reception details. But this festival-inspired wedding in Los Angeles somehow stood out on every level . . . and without much effort, at that. The laid-back, beachside nuptials featured outdoor lounging areas, dogs with flower necklaces, trolley transportation, and more. But our favorite highlights, by far, were definitely the food truck reception and silent disco. ” – PopSugar

An Elegant Black-Tie Wedding at Cafe Pinot Featured on The Knot

By | Press, Wedding Inspiration, Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

This romantic Cafe Pinot wedding is featured on The Knot! The Lighter Side provided  Fellini stringer lights, stage wash, up lights and custom lighting designs for Shannon & Aaron’s outdoor wedding.

“Shannon Radecki (33 and in advertising) and Aaron Pfeffer (37 and a real estate investor) wanted their black-tie wedding in downtown Los Angeles, California, to be playful with lots of personal details. “We knew we wanted to be married at a venue that gave our guests a different, more elegant perspective of Los Angeles—more city, less beach,” Shannon says. “When we stepped onto the Cafe Pinot grounds, we knew we had found our venue.” For the ceremony’s decor, Shannon and Aaron followed a romantic “Midnight in Paris” vibe, surrounding their elegant flower-wrapped chuppah with candles and twinkle lights. After the ceremony their 160 guests settled in at tables set with warm rose gold linens and flatware. Other touches included place cards with chummy nicknames, a specially made “cheesecake” made with rounds of cheese and charcuterie, and frozen bananas from local vendor Hannah’s Bananas. “My advice to brides in the throes of wedding planning is to embrace who you are rather than who you’re not,” Shannon says. “I was dead set on being a relaxed bride, but as a type A personality, that’s not who I am. While I was far from a totally relaxed bride, I was a happy bride, and that was way more important than being as cool as a cucumber.” —Carolyn Meers
