Yvonne and Evan's romantic day began with an intimate ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Rejoing their guests, the bride and groom danced their way into the reception to the beat of their favorite song, and the dancing didn't stop there!

Real Wedding Shenanigans: Nicole & Tom

Nicole and Tom celebrated their wedding day at the Garland, a stunning venue in Hollywood. The two chose to add onto the venues natural beauty and fill the center of the tables from the reception with floral arrangements and votives. One of our favorite details from this day were the disposable cameras placed on each table, inviting guests to document their fun while saving those memories for the bride and groom. The happiness between these two radiated throughout the day and we wish them all the best!

Real Wedding Shenanigans: Kavita & Kiran

Kavita and Kiran were married at Hilton Universal on March 10, in Los Angeles, Ca. As ambient music played during the cocktail hour, guests enjoyed appetizers and the couple's signature drink, a Moscow Mule. Taking a step inside the reception hall, glass hurricanes vases were filled with tall leaf centerpieces, set on gold mirror trays. Accenting the tables, fern leaves were laid on each napkin and placed together with Burgundy chiffon ties, making for lovely decor. From the grand entrance to the fresh and flavorful cake, this wedding covered every detail imaginable. A magical day it was, we loved celebrating Kavita and Kiran's wedding together!
