real wedding shenanigans: karen & tana

Karen and Tana were married in a beautiful ceremony at the Inn of the Seventh Ray surrounded by thousands of twinkle lights, the greenery of Topanga Canyon, and the love and support of their friends and family. Their vows were romantic, moving, funny, and joyful, leaving not a dry eye in the house. The evening continued with a rockin' reception featuring a delicious farm-to-table dinner, a super-fun photo booth, coconut cream cake, dancing galore, and a sweet sparkler send-off. The theme and decor were inspired by the woodsy location and ambient lighting. Since it was a winter wedding, we threw in a touch of winter without getting too Christmas-y. We also included fun decor such as marquee lights, conversation starters, and cute chalkboard signs. We had a blast working with this lovely couple to create their dream wedding, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness!
