When we saw Stephanie and John’s fabulous Los Angeles wedding last, they had just tied the knot and said I Do! We enjoyed every elegant detail of this Southern California wedding that we had to split it into three separate posts!
If you missed it, we first saw the excitement of Stephanie getting ready, and John’s genuine reaction to seeing Stephanie as his bride for the first time in their “first look” photos, as well as beautiful portraits of this adorable couple all over the Biltmore Hotel.
You’re in for a treat today, because we’re revealing all of their gorgeous white and grey reception decor and you’re going to love it!
Stephanie and John steal a kiss after their gorgeous ceremony at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, and head to their reception for a grand entrance!
We couldn’t resist snapping a few photos in front of this giant vintage photograph in the Biltmore. Such wonderful detail! Scrollwork and S&J were common themes throughout their printed materials. We love their little guest gifts! Grey ribbon brings in their color scheme nicely. Their table “numbers” are so adorable! Each one is a scene from a favorite movie of Stephanie and John’s. Such a cute way to tie in something personal! The gold candelabras that hold the centerpiece flowers give an air of grandeur to the table. Nothing is classier than a harpist! She entertained the guests during cocktail hour, and while they anxiously awaited the bridal party and the newly married couple. The bridal party played it cool and swaggered into the reception with style. Nothing is as fun as making a grand entrance into your own party! There they are! Stephanie and John shimmy their way into the room to excited applause. Toasts and speeches were numerous and hilarious! The bridesmaids took it upon themselves to make the speeches unique and meaningful. Surrounded by friends and family! The first dance is always our favorite moment to capture – it’s the culmination of everything a wedding day is about, and it’s a moment for the couple to be close after all the day’s excitement. We’re gaga over Stephanie’s Vera Wang dress. She couldn’t have picked anything more perfect for her elegant wedding! Their beautiful cake was made by the Biltmore – it’s a beautiful, delicious addition to their elegant wedding. Stephanie changed into an adorable shift dress to dance the night away!
We wish you all the best! xoxo – Milou and Olin
