FROM THE BRIDE // The wedding was truly even more spectacular and fun than we imagined. Everything from the “first look” to venue décor made the day so special. Seeing our family and friends smiling at us as we walked down the aisle and sharing our vows of marriage with each other in front of them are moments we will never forget. After the officiant declared us husband and wife, there was a sense of excitement and celebration in the air. The party continued from there on out! We enjoyed dancing the night away with our friends and newly joined families.

Our favorite memories of the wedding definitely revolved around our family and friends.  From the adrenaline rush of working our way down the aisle through a sea of excited onlooking faces, to having a line of eager guests wanting to take pictures with us, all the way to the dancing celebration at our reception, it was a blast getting to take in the momentous day in the presence of our loved ones as they made us feel like rock-stars! We loved our elegant estate wedding at the Ebell of Los Angeles.

We took inspiration for wedding décor and florals from the venue itself, The Ebell of Los Angeles. The venue is a beautiful historic building and we really felt that keeping it classic, soft, and romantic would be the way to go. We did incorporate a few touches along the way to make it more personal and “us”, including adding Cogsworth and Lumiere to adorn our sweetheart table, as we are Disney fans, and the “novio” and “novia” signs for our chairs.

FROM THE GROOM // I was initially very opposed to having a first look, mostly because I wanted to stick to tradition.  After several nights of “sleeping on it” we decided to partake in a first look, and it was probably one of the best decisions we could have made.  Doing so allowed us to take so many pictures! Not only were we able to take advantage of the natural lighting but we also had a lot of shots/poses that we probably wouldn’t have had if we chose not to have a first look.

Romantic Wedding inspiration at Bixby Knolls Manor

WRITTEN AS FEATURED ON SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BRIDE // “Our bride wore a beautiful sleeveless wedding dress that was topped off by a floral head piece made of fresh flowers. Calligraphy signs were displayed matching the hand written menu cards placed on the tables. Unlike the traditional full floor length linens, and standard table runners, our tables were dressed with a simple silk table runner running through the middle allowing the tables’ natural beauty to be showcased with the plate setting. Fresh floral arrangements sat lined up on the silk runner while detailed plates were stacked and perfectly arranged side by side; tall white candle sticks lit the tables to emphasize that romantic feeling. To give it a pop of color, we had linen plum colored napkins cascading on the side of the table. Vineyard chairs was our cherry on top as it completed the look of our dinner tables.

What wedding would not have sweet treats? Not ours! We included a mini dessert table that showcased delicious cake pops, cake shots, hand-designed cookies, and a wedding cake. A fresh garland wrapped around the setting really helped emphasize the natural feel we wanted to incorporate in the look.

This exclusive historic mansion in Bixby Knolls of Long Beach was the perfect location to have our mock up of a timeless romance style wedding. With it’s historic features inside and out, the property gave a unique vintage feel which fit perfectly for the theme. Our color palette was based off the setting of the property: nudes, blush, green, and a pop of plum color. I wanted to create a look that would never go out of style but at the same time, incorporate small trends that are happening now.” -Dean Bernard Events
