If modern is your cup of tea then you can’t go wrong with a venue like Manhattan Beach’s Shade Hotel.  The magnificent courtyard, with its clean features and mix of green and gray elements, is the perfect backdrop for any contemporary celebration. LVL Weddings & Events created a sleek, sophisticated fête full of life with warm candlelight, damask runners and pretty clusters of white flowers overflowing from every tabletop.  Click here to see the rest in the full gallery!

From LVL Weddings & EventsSarah was born in the UK and grew up in Australia, Boston & California. Jack was born and raised in Indiana. After college, they both moved to Southern California for work. They were set up by friends on a double date and the two have since enjoyed travels around the world, countless sporting events and concerts.  Jack is a big Purdue, Colts & Dodgers fan, the two cheer for his teams from their current home in Hermosa Beach.

The Shade Hotel was the perfect fit for these California transplants, a modern beach boutique hotel where their guests could come enjoy the beach living they had grown to love. Not only was there a draw for the convenience but there was a personal connection, Jack is a Project Executive and was involved in the building of the Stand in Manhattan Beach where the Shade is located.
