Classic-Glam West Hollywood Wedding

If you’ve read SMP for any length of time, you know that I have a love affair with Jose Villa. Aside from being a good person and an even better friend, he is so incredibly thoughtful, so incredibly careful with his work that you can’t help but walk away entirely inspired to make your life just as beautiful. And this wedding made even more lovely by a team of vendors - Laura Hooper Calligraphy, Flower Allie, The Butter End Cakery & more  - is nothing if not completely and entirely intoxicating. And there are TONS more Jose photos in the gallery!

From José Villa PhotographyMark and Becky took great care in making sure their wedding was personal and thoughtful, with plenty of charm and elegance. Mark, a Sales Director for a private jet company, wanted a high-rise city backdrop and Becky, an Executive Manager & Event Designer for a Public Relations firm, wanted a classic and romantic ballroom setting. The London West Hollywood was their perfect compromise.

The wedding weekend kicked off with a formal Vietnamese tea ceremony and rehearsal dinner for 100 guests at Il Cielo, Beverly Hills to honor the bride’s heritage. Inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding gown, Becky wore a custom Vietnamese Ao Dai and headdress made of French lace and hand-beaded Swarovski crystals and pearls. In keeping with the Vietnamese tradition, guests presented the couple with red envelopes and shared well-wishes and prudent advice for their marriage.

The London West Hollywood’s rooftop provided a spectacular backdrop of Los Angeles for Mark and Becky’s wedding ceremony the following day. Drawing inspiration from a pergola in an English rose garden she visited in Hertfordshire, Becky enlisted the help of Allison Becker & Nicholas St. Clair of Flower Allie to construct a custom wrought iron gazebo to hold a 300 pound vintage champagne chandelier she had sourced. To bring the English garden charm to Hollywood, cascading white blooms and hundreds of white rose petals covered the ceremony site. A string quartet played Pachelbel’s Canon in D as the bride, wearing a custom Lazaro gown, walked down the candle-lined aisle on her father’s arm. The groom wore a classic Dior Homme black tuxedo and the couple exchanged rings from Harry Winston.

The English sentiment was carried throughout the details of the wedding from the custom crest & letterpressed calligraphy, created by Laura Hooper, to the five-course Gordon Ramsey catered dinner. Escort & seating cards were hand embossed with a gold leaf motif to match the bride’s headpiece – a DIY labor of love from the bride and her mother in-law. Lush arrangements of ranunculus, garden roses, peonies, sweet pea, jasmine and hydrangeas brought the romantic garden feel to dinner. A six tier confection, created by The Butter End, piped in buttercream with delicate lace applique sat on a bed of fresh flowers. Assortments of vintage gold candlesticks, frames and trays accented the reception space to add to the antique mood of the elegant ballroom. A gourmet burger bar provided a much needed midnight snack as the newlyweds and their 180 guests danced the night away to the tunes of West Coast Music’s JB Project and DJ Z.

Modern Los Angeles Musuem Wedding

I think that even more than the photographs – from OneLove Photography, which are absurdly delicious – I fell in love with this wedding because of what the bride wrote. “Our ceremony was very heartfelt, you could feel the happiness, tears, the smiles all over the church.” EXACTLY what a wedding should feel like…and beautiful to boot. There is so much more right here.

From The Bride…Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. and we have to Thank Chabeli and Laurel from P.S. plans and Phil and Krista from OneLove Photography for making sure our day was amazing. We also have to thank all our friends and family from all their help we had our fair share of DIY.

I have to start by sharing the details of my dress. It was handmade by my aunt. I’m the only girl in the family and ever since I was born she was ready for this day. She worked for 4 months on my dress along with helping make my mom’s dress and my mother-in law’s, she made us all look amazing. I couldn’t have asked for anything else. I felt so honored to walk down the isle. She made every detail with care, she also made my veil, my purse and my garters. She was so proud and happy, everyone still compliments us both on the dress.

Our ceremony was held at St. Vincent church in Los Angeles. One of the prettiest church in town. The ceremony was held in Spanish and English, we wanted to make sure that everyone would be able to share the special moment with us.

The ceremony was very special, one of the most heartfelt moments for those close to me and Eli was to be able to see my parents hand off their only daughter to my husband. Our ceremony was very heartfelt, you could feel the happiness, tears, the smiles all over the church. One meaningful moment aside from vows of course was the priest never removed our lazo. As he declared us husband and wife, we noticed we still had it on, he looked at us and said ” you are now one, so you can walk as one” and so we walked as one.

Our reception was held the roof top of the Petersen Museum. It had an amazing view and set the mood for our wedding. Eli and I are designed oriented we really liked the contemporary look. We wanted something simple but elegant. We had long tables so it felt like we were all gathered as a big family. We had a lounge area inside the “glass box” for people to enjoy some music and dance the night away. We did a dessert bar to commemorate our first date and our passion for sweets.

We have to thank all those friends that help us as well. To all our vendors it was wonderful to work with them and all our guests were happy. We couldn’t have had a more perfect day!
