Ending our Monday with a feature on Style Me Pretty! Last year, we coordinated Jenn+Nick's Malibu wedding at Adamson House. Today, their wedding is featured up on their blog! Emma from Ether and Smith did an amazing job capturing all the details of their wedding day. Check out the full blog post here!
Often times we get asked the question, "Do you enjoy what you do?" and the answer is always "YES!" We don't just enjoy weddings because of the pretty dresses, colorful flowers or the delicious food we get to enjoy, but so much more. We love taking part in couples special days and helping them celebrate with their loved ones. One of our most memorable intimate wedding was held last year for our dear friend, Marie Tran from Luna Bella Beauty. She first reached out to our team in hopes of planning a wedding for this fall. However, due to an unfortunate circumstance, their wedding celebrations got pushed a year early.
Marie reached out to our team and explained that her father had been diagnosed with Lymphoma and wanted to push the wedding so her father could be a part of it. We wanted to make sure logistics were taking care of with the hospital to ensure that everything went smoothly on the day of. Kaiser informed us that we couldn't decorate his room with real flowers so Sara from Handmade by Sara Kim donated some paper garlands and paper flowers. Marie got to have a first look moment with her father and created a beautiful boutonniere for him to wear for the ceremony. Thu from Lace and Stems created a gorgeous bouquet for Marie. Anha graciously offered her talents and captured the day beautifully. The room was definitely filled with lots of emotion and love and we were so grateful to have been able to play a small role in making Marie and Daniel's wedding complete with family surrounding them.
Sadly, couple months later, Marie's father passed away and lost his battle to cancer. But thanks to Anha, Marie and Daniel will have these images that they can cherish and always look back on.
Esther and Samuel got married last Fall and we had a pleasure of planning their carnival themed wedding! When Esther and Samuel first contacted our team, they informed us that they wanted a non-traditional wedding reception. We were thrilled to work with them and get our creative juices flowing. They wanted their reception to be fun and unique and wanted guests to just have a good time.
The venue was already set at their church and it gave us a lot of room to work with. Since they had an open parking lot, there was plenty of room for carnival games and food trucks. Esther and Samuel had a traditional Christian ceremony in the main sanctuary where all of their family and friends witnessed their union. Guests were then welcomed into the church's fellowship hall for some light refreshments. Upon entering, guests were handed their admission ticket, which was also their escort card. City Flowers LA did a great job decorating the guest tables with gorgeous centerpieces. The bride made homemade soaps as party favors and they smelled amazing!
The bride and groom did not have a traditional grand entrance, but to kick off reception, they played the first carnival game! Once the newlyweds played the first round of each game, guests enjoyed delicious snacks from Phantom Food Truck and quenched their thirsts from the Boba Truck. We love how each guest got to take home a prize of a small bear wearing a t-shirt with the couples monogram. The kids loved getting a snack from the popcorn cart and everyone had a great time celebrating the couple.
