Happy Wednesday Friends!
With the holidays right around the corner, today I find myself in quite a nostalgic mood for all things merry and bright! On this freezing Wednesday (or at least as close to freezing as we get here in LA), I’m happy to share with you a wedding we put together, start-to-finish, in exactly two months, for three days after Christmas!
Last October, I met Tonya and her fabulous mother who live on the East Coast for the first time and signed on to plan her Beverly Hills wedding for December 28th! The family had decided to spend Christmas in Los Angeles and the happy couple surprised everyone by announcing their plan to elope. We quickly chose the Royal Suite in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel as the backdrop for our little celebration.
The ceremony was held on the roof of the hotel, giving the couple’s families a spectacular view of the hills and city!
Being ‘foodies’ both the cake and the cuisine had to be absolutely amazing (and it was!). My goal was to make the reception a glowing banquet where Tonya & Nick were the king and queen! We brought in both deep and dusty purples to the already gorgeous suite. I was so glad Tonya chose a deep orange cake to create a pop of perfection!
Throughout the day, Nick & Tonya were the kind of couple that simply couldn’t get enough of each other. I still miss my weekly chats with Tonya & her mom Alice and wish Mr. & Mrs. Mercer a happy almost 1 year anniversary!
