Give me a traditionally elegant ballroom affair, and I’ll be one very happy blogger. There’s no question about that. And when that ballroom beauty happens to include a candlelit dinner, lush cream florals, and cake from The Butter End…I might just get a wee bit upset I wasn’t invited. Hazelnut Photography’s images tell the whole gorgeous story, and you can find them all waiting right here.
From Hazelnut Photography… Ashley & Brett love to travel. Seeing and experiencing all the world has to offer is important, and something that they love to do together. Brett has lived all over the world and Ashley has a deep affinity for all things Parisian. The ornate trims and classic color scheme of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills was the absolutely perfect backdrop for their nuptials. The hotel has a rich history in Southern California, but each detail is a nod toward the rich European aesthetic.
Ashley took notes from their incredible venue and create a classic, lush wedding with blush & cream tones. Ashley wore her great-grandmothers’ earrings and bracelet, they were the perfect complement to her incredible Reem Acra gown & Jimmy Choo shoes.The first look took place in the incredible Royal Suite. The beautiful light and incredible architecture only enhanced a beautiful & emotional moment between the two of them. They sipped champagne and the anxiety of the day washed away. As the sun dipped below the horizon, Ashley & Brett signed their Ketubah, surrounded by their family members and then headed to the Terrace for the ceremony. The reception was nonstop dancing, an amazing party full of love and laughter!
