De-luxe. This Beverly Hills Hotel wedding is capital DELUXE. Levine Fox Events planned the spectacular affair with the gorgeous bride and groom, and every detail is dripping in luxury. I seriously feel like I've stumbled across an old Hollywood party - complete with beautiful red roses, a stunning candlelight ceremony, and an ambiance that can only be described as sparkling. John Solano Photography was able to capture the day in a way that has me begging for more - and lucky for me (and you!) there is a whole lot more in the full image gallery!
From Lavine Fox Events ... Our couple - originally from Germany (Bride) and Beverly Hills (groom) currently live in Las Vegas and both hold quite prestigious jobs in the hotel industry. Their event was a destination wedding. With a bridesmaid's spa & high tea get together at the home of the groom's sister on Friday afternoon, to the rehearsal dinner at Il Cielo, and the brunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Sunday, it was a weekend of fun filled events, love and good friends and family.
The Wedding was a traditional Jewish ceremony performed by the Bride's family Rabbi's who were flown in from Las Vegas.
The ceremony took place in the lush garden of the Beverly Hills Hotel. Nancy from Mark's Garden as well as Alyson & Diane from Levine Fox Events, designed a traditional yet elegant setting for the ceremony to take place, using all ivory and white flowers. The Chuppah also adorned a crystal chandelier which added a touch of glitz which the bride loved. Classical music from the six piece string based group provided by West Coast Music filled the air as guests entered the garden. Ladies were handed pashminas in case they felt the chill of the February night air. Guests were also asked to sign a special wine bottle with custom label for the bride and the groom (avid wine drinkers).
Once the ceremony was complete, guests were then escorted by hotel staff to the foyer of the Rodeo Ballroom. There they were greeted by a color scheme of fuchsia floral and silver draped accents. Upon entry to the foyer, guests collected their escort cards which laid upon three square tables at different heights with floral and glowing candle accents. They then had a chance to view photos of the bride and grooms family, past and present from the display on the ancestor tables. Each family member was represented with their photo in an elegant jeweled frame with calligraphied card placed in front showing their relation to the bride and groom. Guests dined on delicious passed hors d'oeurves, specialty passed drinks, and jazzy tunes from West Coast Music.
When the ballroom doors opened, everyone gasped. Ooohs and Ahhhs were whispered to each other as everyone was escorted to their tables. The colors or Red, Burgundy, Fuchsia & Black completely transformed this elegant yet simple room into a completely new environment. The room was draped in red, with black tie backs on each side. A proscenium and unique draping accents set the stage apart from the rest of the room. A long oval head table made a grand statement with elegant chair covers donning over-sized roses, round booths around the perimeter of the room offered unique & comfortable seating and the rectangle tables throughout also gave a "hip" vibe to this unique layout. A red applique of the bride & groom's name and elegant lighting lit the beautiful glossy black dance floor.
Each centerpiece was a bit different, some high, some low all with use of "bling" accents. Custom Personalized Menus were placed at each seat and each table number was embroidered onto dupioni silk fabric tent cards. The wedding cake was complete with it's own unique backdrop, specialty linens and floral cake stand. Guests enjoyed a custom designed menu complete with amuse bouche, passed desserts, greasy, late night snacks as well as a special birthday, champagne toast made from the groom to the bride at midnight. The warm toasts, feelings of love, unique accents and incredible music filled this night and to this day our special couple and their parents still receive calls and notes about their night of magic.
