Glamorous Affair at the London West Hollywood

This is quite possibly my dream wedding. A healthy dose of glamour, a rooftop wedding at The London West Hollywood Hotel and, the best part, cupcakes before dinner. My inner 5 year old is squealing with delight. And with the help of some well versed vendors like Christine Farah Photography and Flower Allie, this white and gold glam fest was turned into one heck of a gorgeous party

From The Bride… Having a venue such as The London West Hollywood helped keep the focus chic and classic with a clean edge. Using white floral arrangements, white chiavari chairs, off white bridesmaid dresses, and a touch of gold accents in the table runners/linens, dessert bar, and confetti toss added the most important details: Sparkle, Shine, and Fun!!

Throughout the entire planning process, we knew the color palette would be white with a touch of gold. I envisioned my bouquet to be a huge ball of white peonies and the tables to be filled with white hydrangeas and white orchids to create a fresh and clean feel. Since our reception was on the rooftop, we wanted to find just the right candleholders that would illuminate the tables and create a warm glow so our guests would feel warm and cozy as the sun began to set. We mixed and matched a variety of candle holders, plant pots, and lanterns to fill the table tops and we loved the look of the varying sizes as the light from the candles were shining through the lace pattern on the tables.

“Sparkle, shine, and fun” would be the exact words to describe our wedding. One way to create the “sparkle” was renting gold sequins tablecloths and sparkly gold/white chevron table runners. Having an outdoor wedding and reception, made the tables sparkle and shine brightly! Bringing in a little bit of my Japanese culture, my mother and aunts folded one-thousand silver paper cranes and strung them on wishing trees so our guests would be able to write well wishes for us. The one thousand paper cranes were folded for good luck, health, and prosperity. These definitely added a great shine as soon as our guests arrived. Bring on the fun…the one thing we absolutely loved and was truly a memorable moment was when our guests showered us with love as we walked down the aisle as husband and wife. It was literally a “shower” of love with the confetti softly floating in the sky and landing gently around us. It was one of those moments that we looked at each other, and had to take it all in because it was such an overwhelming feeling of love.

“Eating dessert first” with edible escort cards gave our guest a taste of the amazing food that would be catered by Gordon Ramsey and a luscious dessert bar that overflowed with LOVE. Having “I DO” imprinted gold hearts on the cupcakes and “C” and “P” initial cookies help to personalize our dessert table to display our favorite desserts. At night, the dessert table looked completely different! The table was shining and glowing with candles which created a romantic atmosphere as we cut our cake.

The dress. My vision for my wedding dress was inspired by my mother’s wedding dress over 40 years ago. She had a flowing lace veil that draped down her back and it created the most beautiful silhouette of her. I knew the style of my dress was going to be a ball gown- but with a modern twist to match our venue. Immediately walking into the boutique, this dress caught my eye. The voluminous layers, upon layers, upon layers of organza was breathtaking…this was THE dress!

As the night came to an end, it was simply the most perfect celebration of our love…CHEERS!
