The Montage Beverly Hills was dressed in white and black for this stunning event for our gorgeous couple saying their “I Do’s”.

Staying with the classic black-tie and white dress, this bride and groom were accompanied by their guys and gals dressed in white and black, as well. After tying the knot, they proceeded to walk out of the church hand-in-hand with a gleaming smile to celebrate their union. Before entering the grand hall, pictures of their love were captured by Mariel Hannah who documented beautiful backdrops of the Montage while the couple showed off their radiating love.

Highlighting the venue, florals by Oak and the Owl took over the white tables and topped the four-tier cake with white arrangements. Our team was able to bring the best out of this already stunning wedding by spotlighting the dance floor where guests were able to enjoy music by DJ City and Miss DJ Bliss. Dressed to the nines, guests were able to document their attire and enjoyment with pictures from Third Eye Photo Booth.

McLaren Beverly Hills and McLaren Automotive Celebrate Bespoke ‘Racing Through the Ages’ Collection by MSO

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This month, the McLaren Special Operations (MSO), with host guests Frankie Foti and Aldis Hodge, came together at the McLaren Beverly Hills to celebrate the ‘Racing Through The Ages’ Collection. The event celebrated the McLaren’s history as well as the unveiling of six one-of-a-kind vehicles.

Upon arrival guests were taken through a branded maze of McLaren sportscars and super cars, enhanced by 3D elements and an array of paneled walls with images from the iconic British brand. MSO showcased an entire selection of configuration items in the maze by displaying samples of paint, carbon fiber, and leather. In addition, guests were able to view and enjoy 50+ McLarens displayed in the parking lot, including a 600LT.

The grand reveal presented by Aldis Hodge in conjunction with co-host Frankie Foti featured a series of incredible magic tricks, from fog smoke to key appearances, designed to unveil each of the six bespoke MSO vehicles which had been until then disguised under black stealth sheets. In addition, guests were thrilled to see two McLaren Sennas and two McLaren F1 GTR displayed at the event as well as racing heritage  1977 McLaren M8E/F CAN-AM and O’Gara Motorsport Division 570 GT4.

“We’ve built a dedicated following of McLaren owners here in Beverly Hills and the greater Los Angeles area. As most of our clients are interested in customizing their vehicles, McLaren Special Operations gives them that opportunity. From custom paints to bespoke vehicles, MSO allows our clients to create truly one-of-a-kind vehicles. We are fortunate to have a phenomenal amount of support from McLaren to put together an event like this and showcase what McLaren Special Operations has to offer” -Chris Blank, Brand Manager at McLaren Beverly Hills

The collection, which commemorates McLaren’s racing heritage, features three distinct themes: Muriwai, which celebrates Bruce McLaren’s early racing exploits in New Zealand; Papaya Spark, which honors victories in orange throughout the 1960s and 70s and its continued use on modern Formula One cars; and lastly, Sarthe Grey, inspired by McLaren’s dominant Le Mans victory in 1995, the only time a manufacturer has won Le Mans on its debut.

Each theme is represented by both a 570S Coupe and 570S Spider, for a total of six cars in the collection, all of which feature a GT4 racing stripe on the exterior hood and roof, and are complemented by the MSO Defined Black Pack, 10-Spoke Super-Lightweight Forged Wheels in Gloss Black and MSO Defined Titanium SuperSports Exhaust.

Such commissions have helped McLaren Beverly Hills be on track to become the number one retailer in the world in 2018 for McLaren Special Operations.

Stephanie Godfrey Photography

“It’s exciting for us at MSO any time we are able to merge McLaren’s racing heritage with current McLaren Automotive road cars,” said Ansar Ali, Managing Director, McLaren Special Operations. “Working alongside our retailers such as McLaren Beverly Hills to create these distinctive, limited editions of special cars for McLaren customers is an increasingly important part of our business as the demand for bespoke commissions becomes more popular.”

As a special charity component, McLaren Beverly Hills has donated a 570S Spider in Muriwai White (MSRP $264,878) to One Night for One Drop, which will be auctioned off at their philanthropic event hosted by Cirque du Soleil on March 8th 2019. The event supports One Drop, an international non-profit organization dedicated to providing access to safe water.

During the event, guests enjoyed additional entertainment such as aerialist performers and video games by Microsoft Forza, which features a McLaren Senna on the cover. Guests also indulged in light bites and sipped signature cocktails by mixologist The Grand Bevy. Each molecular cocktail was inspired by the historical colors of the special edition cars as well as the technology behind them.

Bringing Love and Art Together

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

We thoroughly enjoyed sharing in newlyweds David and Stephen’s special day. The lovely couple celebrated their union with friends and family at the Palm Springs Art Museum. Bright Bird Photography captured every detail of the day creating one of a kind visual of the memories from the lavish event.  

The couple gave their guests the full experience from the time they received their save the dates, to the time the guests said their goodbyes. A billboard that read, “Welcome friends and family. We’re looking forward to sharing our special weekend with you” greeted the guests on the highway as they entered the exclusive venue.

The two walked down the isle dapper as ever in their sleek suits with matching bow ties and Cartier cufflinks. They were accompanied by their beautiful bridesmaids who wore gorgeous black and white gowns to accent the couple’s ensemble. The wedding ceremony continued through the sunset and was illuminated by lights that beamed perfectly.
This elegant wedding featured a simple black and white color palette with subtle accents of yellow sprinkled into the décor. The tablescapes included votive candles that helped create a romantic atmosphere and flawlessly complemented the assortment of beautiful yellow flowers displayed in the elegant glass vases. The evening was spent sharing old memories, laughing, and tons of dancing. Special Thanks to the creative team at COJ Events who made this beautiful evening one to remember.

Erika & Jonathan had their awe-dropping wedding at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar in San Diego, California. From their booming love to the fireworks filling the night sky, their wedding celebration was definitely a sight to see. Every detail can now be seen on Carats & Cake.

Carats & Cake is an online source for your wedding inspiration. They describe themselves as “the best of weddings, so you can discover the best of vendors.”

“We also wanted the room to have a romantic feel so we added 12 chandeliers on top of the dance floor. Another special touch we added to our wedding was putting a long bar at the front of the dance floor instead of away and separate from the dance floor. That way our guests really enjoyed the night and made sure to dance the whole night long!” – Bride, Erika.

Dalit, as a part of the Lady Liberty Events team, was relaxed and full of excitement for the big day.
