From Joyful Weddings & Events… Keren and Pieter were married at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, which is where Keren had always dreamed of having her wedding. This sweet and stylish couple envisioned a clean, modern yet still traditional decor scheme with preppy touches, set in navy blue, yellow and white.
The weather the day of their wedding was absolutely perfect and they said their emotion-filled vows overlooking the shimmering Pacific Ocean. Carissa of JL Designs created a light, gorgeous chuppah, including fabric that would be seen again in the escort card display and on the reception tables. The love these two have for each other is so tender and evident- you cannot help but be moved when you are around them. One of my favorite aspects of the day is that Pieter surprised Keren as she walked down the aisle by hiring a pianist to play her favorite version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. The look on her face when she realized what was happening was absolutely priceless! Making the ceremony even more personal and special, Keren’s brother and sister performed a beautiful song after the couple said their vows.
Keren had small locket with a photo of her parents at their wedding tied onto her gorgeous all white bouquet. Each bridesmaid carried a bouquet of a different yellow flower, with the maid of honor having a mix of all of the yellow blooms. Keren also gifted each bridesmaid a unique necklace, purchased from various etsy sellers.
The reception was set with a mix of round and long tables, set with custom runners made by JL Designs. Keeping with Keren’s simple but beautiful vision, all white flowers were used in white ceramic vases with white candlesticks. Various ribbon accents were added to the centerpieces and napkins as well.
Keren was born in Israel and speaks Hebrew and Pieter grew up in France and speaks French (in fact, “Frenchy” was Keren’s nickname for Pieter before they started dating) so we wanted to include that into their wedding somehow. For the table number signs, the number was written in both English, French and Hebrew. Posh Paperie also made signs for the back of the bride and groom’s chairs with “Mr.” and “Mrs.” written in all three languages as well. As a surprise to the couple, I made a banner saying love in French for their photos and cake table. Speaking of the cake- Sweet and Saucy created a trio of gorgeous cakes featuring the wedding colors. In addition to the delicious cake, late night snacks of milkshakes, grilled cheese sandwiches, hamburgers and french fries were served with paper cones and flags to match the wedding decor.
Pieter and Keren’s wedding day was a great reflection of the two of them as individuals and as a couple: gorgeous, elegant, personal, stylish, meaningful and fun.
