St. Sophia Wedding Ceremony

Wedding Reception in Home

Beverly Hills, California

Photographs by Todd Johnson Photography

One of our favorite weddings planned on lucky 7-7-7.  Fabulous bride with fabulous taste.  We recreated their front yard into a Versailles wonderland that would have made Marie Antoinette jealous.  Instead of a traditional tent we used fabric with billowed in the wind for an enchanting effect.  Crystal chandeliers glistened in the sunlight.  Fabulous food from our celebrity chef everyone with chilean sea bass  with ginger miso sauce or braised short ribs with a fig balsamic reduction.  An example of our catering at it's finist.

Michele begged the bride to let her decorate the swing hanging from the tree in her yard. Oh, how we are so happy she trusted the vision. This swing decorated in oodles of flowers was an absolutely perfect touch to the garden reception.

For the head table we did not incorporate the overlay inviting the color of the blue tablecloth to pop in the room. We also made this one table long, centering it in the middle of the room. Long taper candles our are favorite decorantions.
