Caroline and Nathan's Wedding

Caroline and Nathan's wedding day was filled with personal touches. From their wedding invitations down to the bride/bridesmaids skirts, everything was very personal and made by hand. Caroline designed her invitations, programs and menu's all on her own. One of our favorite personal touches were the hands she added to the invitations. Those hands were drawn by Caroline to symbolize her relationship with Nathan. The bridesmaids and bride's skirt were hand sewn by the very talented mother of the bride. So much love and detail was poured into this soirée and it definitely showed on their wedding day! 

The couple had their ceremony at First Baptist Church in Pasadena which was located right across the street from Pasadena City Hall. The welcome table had pictures of the sweet couple as well as wedding day pictures from their own parents wedding day. This church is absolutely gorgeous, I mean, check out the beautiful ceiling to floor organ! Have you ever seen anything like it? After Caroline and Nathan exchanged their personal written vows and shared their first kiss, guests headed off to The Athenaeum to continue the celebration. 

The Athenaeum holds a special place in Caroline and Nathan's hearts. This is where they had their first date! Guests were welcomed with delicious appetizers, provided by The Athenaeum and a live caricature artist, from Taylor Entertainment. The guest tables were filled with lush flowers by Jacob Maarse Floral Design and all had green linen overlays that the mother of the bride made. We are so used to seeing white cakes decorated with fresh flowers, so it was refreshing to see a green ombre cake, baked by Fantasy Frostings. Soultones provided live music throughout the evening and the night ended with a gender dance battle. Michelle Mishina did an amazing job capturing all the precious moments and details from their day. Below are just a few of our favorite moments from Caroline and Nathan's soirée!

Hollie and Ivan's Wedding

Hollie and Ivan contacted our team to coordinate their fairytale fall wedding and their day was absolutely magical! Hollie and Ivan actually met in Disney Hong Kong while Hollie was working as a Disney princess! They shared many Skype/phone sessions for a year and their relationship quickly blossomed. Fast forward to their wedding day where family and friends flew from out of the country to witness these two exchange their vows in sunny SoCal. 

Hollie and Ivan's wedding day was filled with love and everlasting memories. One of our favorite moments during the ceremony was when Hollie and her dad were escorted in a vintage blue car. It was such a sweet moment for a father daughter to share one last ride before walking down the aisle. There were plenty of joyful tears shed during the ceremony and everyone cheered for the newly Mr. and Mrs. Kwan! The guests got to enjoy delicious tray passed appetizers provided by Canyon Catering. But everyone was excited for dinner. How can you not after seeing the truck roll in?

The newlyweds served In N Out burgers for dinner as well as a DIY mac n cheese bar! Need we say more? Guests got to order their cheeseburgers or double doubles animal style then top off their mac n cheese with bacon, mushrooms, bread crumbs or jalapenos. For sweets, they had a candy bar filled with a variety of chocolates and hard candy for guests to enjoy. Hollie and Ivan also own a photobooth company so the guests got to take pictures throughout the evening and put it in a frame as a keepsake. Everyone danced the night away under the stars and got to send the couple off with a sparkler exit! Brandon Wong Photography did an amazing job capturing each moment and below are just a few of our favorites!
