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!
