Terry proposed to me when we were in Oahu attending a friend’s wedding. He insisted on me going swimming with him at the beach. It was cold so I decided not to go. But later on, I got a bit concerned so I joined him; when he saw me approaching him, he kneeled under a tree and asked me if I would marry him. It was a complete surprise to me -and I, of course, said yes!
We had been searching for a venue from northern Los Angeles to San Diego. Terry and I are very different… he loves nature and I love the city. When we found that the Four Season in Westlake Village boasts the combination that appeals to both us, we knew we had found our venue. The waterfall and the pagoda are like a little retreat inside a very modern space.
Modern, simple and elegance are what I love. Our color scheme was blue and white. I have to admit there is a part of me that’s very nostalgic of childhood and storytime, and I couldn’t resist to make that a part of my wedding. My all time favorite character is Miffy, created by a Dutch artist, Dick Bruna. I purchased two Miffy Dolls (a bride and a groom) and displayed them in my bridal room, and I had Miffy dolls as the cake top.
I also loved the cute and crowd pleasing “bee hive” cake created by the Four Seasons. My guests were fascinated by the animated looking bees that buzzed around the cake. The candy buffet created by Lumiani was another show stopper. The whole set up was very dreamy, with cotton clouds hanging above the display. And of course, the candies were just irresistible.
