Jennifer and Justin's Wedding

By: Chrystal Park

Our team had the pleasure of working with one of the sweetest couples at one of the cutest venues in Los Angeles. Jennifer and Justin got married on a beautiful spring day at Lombardi House. The day was filled with so much emotion and our team was honored to take part in such a lovely celebration. We loved how the bridesmaids all had matching skirts but different tops that fit their personal style. Jennifer and Justin had a dog escorted down as their ring bearer and ended up adopting sweet Bella after the wedding. One of our favorite moments of the ceremony was when Jennifer and Justin each took the time to personally give a thank you speech to their parents. It was so heartwarming and emotional, there wasn't a single dry eye amongst the guests.

After the newlyweds exchanged their vows, the guests got to enjoy delicious appetizers provided by Jays Catering. Each guest got to take home a mini succulent which also doubled as their escort card. The reception was held in the barn and it was decorated with greenery and florals by Leafy Floral Designs. The evening was filled with joy, touching speeches and a time for Jennifer and Justin to just celebrate their love with family and friends. The newlyweds had a sparkler grand exit and the guests waved goodbye as the new Mr. and Mrs. headed off to their honeymoon! Caroline Yoon did an amazing job of capturing all the unforgettable moments from their wedding day and below are some of our favorites! 

Stephanie and Eric's Wedding

We had such a pleasure working with one of our sweetest couples, Stephanie and Eric. When we say 'sweetest' we don't mean just their personalities, but their love for cookies and ice cream makes them our sweet tooth loving couple. Stephanie loves to bake cookies and pastries and they both love going on ice cream dates. These two met in grad school and were inseparable ever since. They got married at Ebell of Los Angeles on a gorgeous fall day and Stephanie had not 2 but 3 different dresses. Guests were welcomed to the garden for the beautiful outdoor ceremony and got to enjoy delicious small bites during cocktail hour. Their family and friends welcomed the newlyweds as the new Mr. and Mrs. made their grand entrance and guests witnessed these two partake in their first dance. Since these two love their sweets, guests got to indulge in cookies and cupcakes by Sheila Mae and delicious unique flavors of ice cream provided by Carmela Ice Cream. These two danced the night away and were left with loved ones surrounding them! Check out some of our favorite moments from their wedding, captured by William Kim. 

The Crave Expo

Last night, my team and I were invited to the first annual Crave Expo which was held at The Mark for Events in Los Angeles. What is the Crave Expo? "Crave is the first and only food expo that exclusively exhibits chefs to showcase delicious creations to event planners, to investors, and those looking for a one-stop shop for their catering needs." -Crave. I had so much fun indulging in so many awesome and unique cuisines. Here are just some of my favorites from last nights expo. Can't wait for next years event!
