Intimate weddings are my favorite. Maybe that’s because I’ve always pictured my own wedding day as a small celebration with just the closest of family and friends… or maybe it’s because I adore anything cozy and comfy. My guess? It’s a sweet combination of all of the above and the reason I can’t stop swooning over this Beverly Hills affair planned to perfection by The Charming Little Company. It’s what I call pure wedding perfection and you can see every last glorious moment captured by Hugh Forte right here.
From The Charming Little Company… Robin and John wanted a beautiful and intimate wedding, shared with just a few friends and family members – parents, siblings and spouses. Our goal in designing the feel and look of the space was to keep it beautifully simple while incorporating special touches throughout the space. This included florals that were organic, loose and full of blush colors and a custom made fountain top to hold a large floral piece and alternating sized candles. For the ceremony, we used chunky, ivory dining chairs arranged in a semi-circle to ensure all guests felt included. In the cocktail space, designated for celebration champagne immediately following the ceremony, an iron tea cart held mineral waters and iced tea and two tall tables provided guests with snacks from Belvedere Restaurant. For the dining room, large arrangements, mercury glass and an assortment of candles provided a feeling of comfortable dining at home. The Peninsula’s exclusive, garden-inspired grounds were perfect for photos of the couple and surrounding space, by Hugh Forte.
