The wedding that started our 2016 was definitely a memorable one! Planned in less than a month and with the help of the most amazing vendor team, this wedding was a stunner! Michelle and Michael’s wedding January 2016 wedding at the Montage in Beverly Hills was an elegant affair bringing guests from all around the world to celebrate their nuptials.

The couple met during a friend’s birthday dinner at a seafood restaurant, where Michelle caught Michael’s eye and he had tried to do anything to grab her attention. He happily offered to crack all her crab legs and lobster claws, and that gained a future date which led to this couple becoming husband and wife. It was only appropriate for us to incorporate this story into the couple’s escort installation with a “You Crack Me Up” wall where guests were each given an “escort” crab claw cracker to guide them to their seats. During the couple’s relationship they shared many adventures together where the bride mentioned her love for French dessert carts. We couldn’t resist trying to replicate that inside their reception by renting gold bar carts from Found Vintage Rentals and adorning each cart with each of the couple’s favorite desserts. The guests loved this roaming detail that was offered to guests at each of their tables throughout the reception post dinner.

Our favorite part and design piece was the ceremony itself. The heavily detailed ceremony included at the entrance a vintage piece from Found Rentals that was adorned with lush greenery and floral from Peony and Plum. The aisle itself was draped with sections of white chiffon draping that also help a crystal chandelier dripping with greenery. And of course the altar that has a simple and classic floral arch where the couple exchanged their vows.

Michelle and Michael, thank you for allowing us to work with you both on this wedding! It was certainly a challenge that was worth every single second spent to make your dream wedding possible. We love you both so much and so happy to continuously see your adventures and growing family!
