Our blushing bride and groom became husband and wife in a touching ceremony in the courtyard. Dark wood chiavari chairs provided ample seating for guests as the two exchanged vows in front of the fountain. Lori wore a gorgeous lace gown and carried a bouquet of white and pale blush blooms while Justin awaited her at the alter in a sleek black tux. As the newly announced Mr. & Mrs. took their walk back down the aisle together, guests blew bubbles in celebration of their union.
Guests were then invited to the Library for cocktails at the bar and tray passed hors d’oeuvres such as Fried Chicken on a Mini Bacon Biscuit with Country Gravy, “Sausage and Peppers”- Baby Bell Peppers, Soyriso, Heirloom Tomato Ragu, Carmelized Onions and other delicious treats. A sweet display of donuts on the Library’s piano directed guests to find their seats for the lovely reception that followed.
Lori and Justin enjoyed their romantic reception from a vintage sweetheart table in front of the courtyard fountain that was covered in greenery and pale pink blooms by Rekindle Creative with the glow of candlelight surrounding them. Guests dined at long, family style tables in the courtyard and round tables throughout the ballroom. Tables were topped with soft pink blooms, glistening glassware, and unique geometric vases. A buffet dinner was served by Tres LA Catering to the over two hundred guests which included Grilled Hanger with Cilantro Chimichurri or Crusted Chicken Breast with Lemon and Parsley with Crispy Taro Root and a delicious selection of sides.
The evening concluded with a night full of dancing to the tunes played by VOX DJs, and visiting the photo booth for some fun memories to take home. Special thank you to all of the creatives who came together to make this gorgeous wedding happen and to Ether and Smith for capturing all the details so perfectly!
