mollie and jim - bel air bay club, pacific palisades





bridal bouquet made up of white mini calas, white ranunculas, white japhette orchids and white tulips...adorned with a vintage inspired rhinestone brooch...


i am obsessed with these bridesmaids dresses! so chic!



a super simple chuppah structure made up of black dupioni silk wrapped bases, black bamboo poles, off white chiffon fabric and mounds of fluffy white hydrangea...

square trays were wrapped in black dupioni silk and filled with white rose petals to shower the newlyweds as they recessed down the aisle...














a quad of tall glass rectangular vases were filled with submerged white dendrovium orchids and set on top was a large arrangement made up of ivory hydrangea, ivory dahlias, cream colored reflexed roses, white tulips and white ranunculas...

a medium sized box was wrapped in taupe dupioni silk and accented around the base by a ring of loose white floral...set on top was a series of 5 different height rectangular vases holding submerged white dendrovium orchids and a white floating candle...





a quiet moment alone for the bride and groom just before the guests entered the ballroom...

this wedding was a dream to work on! the bride had such a killer sense of style due to the fact that she worked in the fashion industry...and although it was my first time working at bel air bay club, i am hooked! it is such a beautiful venue with an amazing view!

a HUGE thanks to kathy and susan of bella weddings and events for bringing me in on the job! you are always so fab and fun to work with!

also i must shout out nathan from lighten up for giving the ballroom the most inviting warm glow on that gloomy, rainy day...to chameleon chairs for their exceptional line of couture seating...and to elegant designs for the beautiful linens - true ambiance! flowers are nothing without these extra decor items...

and to michael and emi from evoke photography - are you kidding me?! i had WAAAYYY too may images to choose from! you are just too dang good at your craft :)
