Real Wedding Shenanigans: Ashley & Steve

Ashley and Steve celebrated their summer nuptials at The Fig House in Los Angeles. Walking down the aisle, Ashley wore a stunning fitted gown with a beautiful train. After she and Steve expressed their love for one another, all cheered as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife. For the reception, friends and family made their way to the shabby chic venue, with dinner outdoors and cake and dancing inside. This day was absolutely magical throughout and wish we nothing but the best to Ashley and Steve!

Real Wedding Shenanigans: Daphane & Jonathan

Daphane and Jonathan found a hidden gem in Palos Verdes where they said: "I Do". Combining the indoors and outdoors, this glass chapel created an ethereal feeling and was the perfect location for the couples wedding day. After the exchange of vows, all shifted to the cocktail hour where specialty cocktails and savory appetizers were served. Following the grand entrance, Daphane and Jonathan shared their first dance together, where the love between the two was felt by all. Topping off the night with some delicious cake, more specialty drinks, and livley music, this wedding was spectacular and we wish all the best to Daphane and Jonathan!

real wedding shenanigans: vanessa & chris

It was a beautiful day in Malibu for a wedding. The cool breezes at Calamigos Ranch blended with the rich sunshine to celebrate Vanessa and Chris's nuptials. The ceremony was held outside while the bridal party entered to music played by a string quartet. The officiant was personal and humorous, and added special elements to the ceremony. The draping of flowers and greenery, along with small touches of traditional Chinese elements transformed a lovely space into the personal, intimate event the bride and groom always wanted. Guests loved the cootie catcher programs, and the Jenga "guest book". After a delicious dinner and dancing to a DJ who catered to guests of all ages, the bride and groom exited through a tunnel of glow sticks and cheers from friends and family.
