Real Wedding Shenanigans: Andrea & Alex

Planning their wedding day, Andrea and Alex chose to say "I Do" in an intimate location at Cielo Farms. Surrounded by loved ones, the bride and groom exchanged vows in a traditional Jewish ceremony. Following the first kiss, Andrea and Alex's family and friends enjoyed picturesque views and tasty, hand-passed appetizers before sitting down for dinner. The night continued with stories from the past, toasts to the future, and lots of laughter. The day was beautiful, and we wish all the best to Andrea and Alex.

Real Wedding Shenanigans: Angela & Jonathan

Angela and Jonathan chose to get married outside at the Bel-Air Bay Club. With outstanding views, the couple worked with WenFlorals, to create a gorgeous arrangement where the two stood and exchanged vows. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a mix of hors d'oeuvres and specialty drinks before heading into the reception. Laughter and tears filled the room, as the bride and grooms loved ones exchanged some great stories from the past. After the speeches and some dancing, it was time for another quick bite. Knowing their guests so well, Angela and Jonathan booked the In-N-Out truck for the ultimate late-night snack. A beautiful day this was, we wish Angela and Jonathan all the best!

Real Wedding Shenanigans: Christen & Brett

Christen and Brett’s family-filled weekend began with an outdoor ceremony on the Oak Tree Lawn at the Adamson House. Creating a romantic bouquet for the bride, Shindig Chic chose to use bright colors and blend many flowers together. These beautiful in-season blooms also created special arrangements that were loved by all.

As guests found their seats, they were stunned by all the detail that went into designing signage for the day. For dinner, the main course included chicken, waffles, and breakfast burritos. Guests paired this delicious cuisine with tableside mimosas could not have been happier! Between the honest exchange of vows, dinner, and photo booth fun, this day was filled with everything Christen and Brett dreamt of. Cheers to the couple as they embark on a life together as husband and wife!

Real Wedding Shenanigans: Shermeen & Sean

Shermeen and Sean’s wedding day was extraordinary from the beginning. Tucked away in Woodland Hills, the couple chose to rent an air BNB for their venue. A lovely setting surrounded by luscious greenery and trees, this “Greenhouse & Gardens” wedding was absolutely breathtaking. The bride and groom shared heartfelt vows, and after their first kiss, they snuck away for some romantic photos of the two of them. Meeting back up with the rest of their guests, all dined on an exquisite dinner made by Spotted Hen Catering. Aside from the delicious meal, this reception tablescape included blue carousel water goblets and rose gold accents.  Following the spectacular dinner, all gathered as the bride and groom cut the cake and shared their first bite. Congratulations to Shermeen and Sean on this beautiful and intimate wedding day celebration!

Chely's Surprise Birthday Party

Planning a party is fun for all involved! On this day in particular, Chely the guest of honour, was ecstatic to be surrounded by family and friends for her surprise party. To help ensure the secrecy of this surprise, So Smitten Special Events coordinated the birthday party for Chely. Helping to plan the day allowed time for family and friends to be with Chely AND not spoil the surprise! The white tent was the perfect backdrop featuring butterflies suspended from chandeliers over the beautifully decorated tables. From the behind the scenes planning, to the moment Chely was surprised, it was a lovely birthday celebration!
