From The Bride…Ever since I was a little girl I have been envisioning the wedding I would once have. I knew I would have beautiful pink flowers, an amazing photographer, décor that would leave a lasting impression on my guests, etc. The only thing I couldn’t see was who I would pledge my love to for the rest of my life, that is until I met Victor. He set up a picture perfect proposal that I will never forget because these precious moments were beautifully documented by Koman Photography. As soon as I said yes, I couldn’t wait to start planning one of the biggest days in our lives. The first vendor we booked was the amazing photographers Koman Photography to capture the important day with a timeless and elegant feel. We then decided to choose August 9, 2015 as our date. We were excited to have a day and at the same time felt blessed to be married on the same day my grandparents did 50 years before us. For this reason, Victor and I really wanted to convey a timeless and elegant wedding that highlighted my grandma’s favorite era in memory of her. For this reason, we chose a beautiful mansion called the Ambassador Mansion and Gardens built in the 1900’s located in Pasadena, CA. Because of this we utilized pops of gold and Victorian elegance throughout the wedding décor. We put emphasis on these elements from getting ready to the reception. We used the garden that the owner of the mansion built for his wife as our ceremony cite and decorated with lush white flowers and greenery (he built this for her to have celebrations in). Our reception was held on the lawn with the mansion overlooking it underneath a white chiffon tent with hanging chandeliers. In the end, we wanted to leave a lasting impression on our guests of how important family is to us and really wanted our personalities to shine through the wedding décor.

Floral Filled Braids You’ll Want to Wear on Your Wedding Day

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate the artistry that is this inspiration – because honestly, it’s beyond. Complete with some of the most incredible hairstyles we’ve EVER seen, Honey Honey Photography has captured an ethereal gallery that you’re sure to love. See it all for yourself in The Vault!

From Honey Honey PhotographyFocusing on a color palette of earth-tones and neutrals with a tease of vibrant spring florals, we wanted to evoke the spirit of a Grecian Goddess and all her elegance, femininity, and worldly beauty.

We chose the Pasadena City Hall as our location for its Mediterranean revival styled-columns and architecture. With the highly embellished vintage pieces provided by Etablir, we wanted to bring indoor luxury to an outdoor space to showcase a harmony between manmade-glamour and natural elements. Lavienne provided us with the simultaneously simple yet detailed dresses. Using an abundance of reflective objects and mirrors through out our shoot, we hoped to bring to light the simple and demure make-up, along with the intricacies of the beautifully styled hair by Grace Lin Hair & Make-Up. In keeping with our theme of small, but elaborate, details, we trusted Emma from Honey Honey Photography to capture the many components that Master Plans Events & Designs thoughtfully selected for this shoot.

We could not be any more grateful for the amazing vendors that made this shoot a fantastic way to welcome the changing of the seasons from winter to spring.

From Wish Wonder DreamThis is one of those weddings and one of those couples who make us beam with pride. Heather and Patrick are true heroes. Both United States Marines, they’ve dedicated their lives to service and their country. They are also two of the kindest, most generous and grateful people we’ve ever met. Oh, and they are also MADLY in love! Planning with them provided it’s share of challenges, because they were constantly on the move and rarely available to plan together. They were often in remote locations, without means of communication. And they were never in the same place. But we were up to the task of working with such an inspiring couple and we worked hard to find ways to keep them involved and always up-to-date. It was really our honor to do so. Their day was filled with all the love and beauty they deserved. And the pride and support from their friends and family was palpable. Their winter wedding was beyond words and one of the most beautiful days, literally and figuratively, we’ve ever been part of. Their photographer, Brett Hickman Photography captured it with perfection (as always) and we’re just so appreciative, to say the least, to have been part of it.
