Ritz Carlton Wedding by Amelia Lyon
April 15, 2010

When Amelia Lyon sent me this UNBELIEVABLE cream-colored dream of a wedding, which took place at the oh so divine Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel... well, I just about died.  No, seriously.  That's how fabulously BREATHTAKING it is.  Amelia's photography regularly has me perched on the very edge of my seat with my eyeballs 10 inches from the screen, hyper-focused on her rich, radiant imagery.  But, oh my, THIS WEDDING... it is pure, unadulterated deliciousness!  And major kudos to the amazing Kary of Kary H Events for her coordinating genius! If you just can't get enough, be sure to check out the gallery for more!

A few words from Kary:

Danah and Ahmad were the picture of elegance and to be in their presence just made you feel special.  It was such a pleasure to work with these two and to help them create their perfect wedding celebration.  The intimate gathering of 60 of their closest friends and family took place at the beautiful Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel.  Danah looked striking in her exquisite, deconstructed gown designed by Lanvin.  They exchanged vows at sunset, overlooking the California coastline.  Every detail was created to make their guests feel welcomed and loved.  We used the softest shades of white, cream and champagne with touches of mother-of-pearl and lots of candlelight to complete the luminous look.  The room was showered with white orchids, hydrangea and tulips.  The bride and groom were serenaded by the vintage jazz sounds of Eddie Wakes, as they shared their first dance as husband and wife.  I enjoyed every minute with this sweet couple.  Cheers to a lifetime of love, Danah and Ahmad!
