Jessica Claire knows how to make a wedding blogger smile. Particularly this wedding blogger. Send me a wedding filled with so much lovely and captured to serious perfection, and I can’t help but get a little giddy. And goodness, there is a lot to get giddy about floating around this fête! Stationery by Ceci New York that will make you swoon, a Monique Lhuillier dress that dreams are made of and a ballroom worthy of a royal – it’s enough to make anyone gush, and you can gush to your hearts content right here.
From Jessica Claire… Kim and Marty are true Angelenos even though they grew up in different parts of the world. Kim is from Manila, and Marty is from Dhahran. They met while both attending business school at USC in Los Angeles. Kim’s vision for the wedding was inspired by a modern day interpretation of the Chinoiserie movement. Ceci Johnson of Ceci New York custom-designed the letter pressed invitations, which featured aqua and gold leafing. Eddie used his magic to create lush, flowing and vibrant arrangements to complement the Colonnade Ballroom at Casa del Mar. The most special moment during the planning process was when Kim’s mom and two of her aunts flew in from the Philippines to be with her for the floral preview.
