California Love! Our lovely couple Lynne and Brian’s story is truly a sweet one. The couple met in Northern California and finally tied the knot down here in Southern California at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes.
“California Love” themed wedding was manifested into their wedding beginning
with the invitation, and ending with the perfect California coast wedding
ceremony and reception. The couple decided on a sweet blend of pastels for
their color palette which included light coral and nude florals. The couple
took a spin on the traditional uniform bridesmaids and groomsmen attire and
permitted them to choose their own attire.
of the couple were treated to not one, not two, but three delectable
sweet treats! L+B prepared their wedding reception a traditional wedding cake,
a rum cake (a favorite of our couple!) table, as well as cookie favors for each
of their guests to take a part of the evening home with them. How sweet love
is! And of course our sweet couple also prepared entertainment for their
guests! The photo booth provided by Velvet Rope kept L+B’s guests
laughing and smiling for the entire evening. The last leg of the evening, the
guests got to view L+B’s journey with the photo montage that they prepared. We
wish our cherished California couple a lovely happily ever after!

Love is sweet! Most couples getting married will agree with this statement, and none more than our couple, Caroline & Howard. C+H themed their wedding off of the sugar company C&H and how perfect it is that this adorable & sweet couple had initials that matched this sweet brand!
Choosing to tie the knot at the Altadena Town & Country Club, C+H definitely knew how to put together a simple, yet thoughtful evening for their guests. The details were particular to this couple, and they made sure that they put a lot of heart and soul into making their wedding day their perfect vision. C+H had a custom banner welcoming guests for their ceremony, paper cut outs on their clothesline escort card display with C&H Sugar Bags acting as weights, beautifully designed centerpieces in an array of mismatching vessels (provided by none other than the very talented ladies at ), and a different bowl of their favorite sweets for their guests to nibble on throughout the evening!
Of course, the couple topped off the night with a decadent Sweet (& Savory!) dessert & snack bar for their guests to enjoy… after all, love can be a little salty sometimes, too! From the well thought out details, to the reception entertainment like their fun take on the newlywed game and a surprise performance by the Groom and Groomsmen, C+H’s wedding was a deliciously sweet celebration of love for one another. They are one of the most adorable couples we've ever met and we wish them a sweet, sweet marriage!The talented Marilyn Nakazato captured this day for the couple. See below for photos from their wedding day (BTW - how fitting is it that she is married to a Pastry Chef!)…

Redondo Beach is one of the most beautiful beach cities in California, which means it is also a perfect location for a wedding! Kristen and Mark chose to have their wedding reception at the Redondo Beach Historic Library, just minutes away from the very famous Redondo Beach Pier, a landmark hot spot for locals and tourists to dine, shop, and take in breathtaking panoramic ocean views. The couple exchanged vows in front of their beloved family and friends at the Riviera United Methodist Church, just minutes away from the reception site.
When it came to customizing their wedding, K+M knew exactly how to do it! Beginning with the wedding dress which was a couture design from Anne Namba, the gown embraced their Japanese heritage and the Bride's sash was made out of a beautifully ornate "obi" material. The bouquets and boutonnieres also had beautiful little details like a festive mizuhiki cord. For the Reception, the couple went traditional with their "ikebana-style" floral arrangements, but incorporated a modern & fun twist that included horsetail bamboos, mokara orchids, and other Japanese/Hawaiian motifs (like a raked rock garden) that made for a quaint miniature Japanese Garden feel. Who else can pull off such beautiful and unique arrangements than one of our fave florists, BeBuds!
In addition to the warm ambiance of the room, K+M made sure their guests had plenty of activities to keep them occupied. They rented a foosball and air hockey table as well as a Ms. Pacman arcade game for their guests to enjoy. Guests also had the fun of capturing the evening in the photo booth, and as if that wasn’t enough, the dance floor was also packed all night!
When it came to really putting their personal touches into an event, K+M sure had the details down. The couple even swayed into their first dance as husband and wife to a recording of Kristen singing John Legend’s “Stay With You”! The down to earth & fun-loving couple definitely put their personalities into their wedding day, and we are so glad we were there to be a part of it!
