Elegant Mansion Wedding in Beverly Hills

I adore a laid-back affair just as much as the next person, but give me a classic soiree literally dripping in elegant details and  So this pretty little party from the lens of Carmen Santorelli?  Sort of my everything.  Think gorgeous styling from Casa Siena Design, florals from Nisie’s Enchanted Florist and a Monique L’Huillier gown that is all sorts of awesome. See it all in THE VAULT.

From Carmen Santorelli… I am thrilled to share Shery and Mehdi’s stunning wedding with you! They are such a beautiful couple inside and out and their wedding day was a joy to capture. There were so many perfect details and traditions that really spoke to Shery and Mehdi as a couple and made the big day personal.

The couple chose the stunning Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills as their reception venue. They had both organic elements incorporated in the decor while maintaining an elegant and timeless feel. I loved the white florals with whimsical greenery and gold highlights throughout the ceremony details. One of my favorite elements of their day were the cello and violin players that lined up the entire walkway at the mansion, during their cocktail hour. The ceremony incorporated beautiful Persian traditions, and the dove release has been by far one of the most incredible things I’ve photographed at a wedding. Congratulations to the happy couple!
