Nathalie, a brilliant attorney practicing in Silicon Valley, was in Law School when she met Clifford, a physique competitor pursuing a Master's degree in Physical Therapy. The power couple was destined to meet at the gym and fall for each other's brains, brawn, and beauty. Clifford's daughter, Scarlett, adores Nathalie as the three of them rooted, grew, and lead a beautiful life together. It was clear their wedding goals were to represent no less than the classic elegance, charm, beauty, and fun-loving nature they radiantly exude. Amber Events was brought on as their planner six months before the big day to take place at the remarkable Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.

With half of their guests (including themselves) traveling from The Bay and the other half local to Southern California, we set out to create a memorable wedding weekend for all, kicking off with a stellar Welcome Party the night before at Mondrian Hotel's restaurant, Ivory On Sunset. The big day came all too soon, filled with love and excitement. Guests arrived at Greystone Mansion's Upper Formal Garden, enjoying the well manicured garden filled with white roses and lined with boxed hedges, of course with a flute of bubbles in hand! With Nathalie's brother officiating their union, the couple wed with the garden's historic fountain and marvelous circular floral arch as their epic backdrop. The newlyweds partied down the isle as Mr. & Mrs. to the sight of their loved ones waving ribbon wands and the sound mini bells festively ringing in celebration. Guests meander through the venue's impressive forecourt, famous Cypress Walk, overlooking the majestic mansion, to find themselves guided to the Terrace. Nathalie and Cliff surprised their guests with a magician, Frankie Foti, who strolled through cocktail hour performing mind boggling up close magic as folks enjoyed cocktails and conversation with a breathtaking view of downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean.

To invite everyone to the reception, grand mansion doors elegantly swing open as the sun set, welcoming guests to pass through the interior of the historic mansion, and into a romantic candle lit courtyard. The couple represented Nathalie's Lebanese heritage with a festive Arabic folk dance, Dabke, performance integrated into their grand entrance. With celebratory energies high, they invited their guests to the dance floor for a couple beats before sitting down to dine surrounding a grand fountain. Traditional Filipino desserts were featured to represent Clifford's heritage alongside an impressive Parisian dessert spread. As yet another delightful surprise, if guests weren't on the dance floor, they would stumble into a silhouette artist who would hand cut your silhouette on the spot! Nathalie, Clifford, their wedding party, friends and family, departed with radiant smiles and full hearts, ready to keep glowing at their after party at Skybar.
