Real Wedding Shenanigans: Tamara & Alexander

White lanterns illuminated by candles with spiral topiaries, anchored the entrance of the First Presbyterian Church Santa Ana. Once the ceremony inside the church was concluded, guests were escorted to Tamara and Alexander's reception at the Estate on Second. The Irish Mule, the couple's signature cocktail was enjoyed by many of the guests. Silver-rimmed chargers on top of shantung linens held each guests spot as the meal was served. Centerpieces were combined with hurricane vases filled of candles and garland, in addition to silver votives placed throughout the tables. Diving into the hot chocolate bar, guests savoured the decadent cake prepared by Jay's Catering, cozied up near the fire pit. Tamara and Alexander's wedding combined traditional aspects with modern twists, creating the perfect vision for their wedding day!

Real Wedding Shenanigans: Anna & Jackie

November 11, was a memorable day for Anna and Jackie as they wed at St. Denis Catholic Church. Following the ceremony, both of the couples families enjoyed tea and lunch at the groom's parents home. Reuniting with their guests, the wedding reception was held at Union Station in Los Angeles, California. Built originally in 1939, this station has been home to a number of people for decades. Its unique architecture and design, were perfect for Anna and Jackie's celebration of their big day. 

The color palette for the day included sage, white, ivory, and taupe. Filled with Fruitwood Chiavari chairs and Ivory cushions, the reception was breathtaking. Menus for this 10-Course Family Style meal, were accented with sage napkins, ribbon, and greenery. Unique elements to this wedding such as a personalized slideshow of the couple, was enjoyed by all. A beautiful day for all, we loved Anna and Jackie's exquisite wedding!
