Romantic Summer Wedding | Saddle Peak Lodge

Romantic Summer Wedding | Saddle Peak Lodge

 

 

A romantic summer wedding story with soft gold accents and a beautiful wedding cake that shimmered in the sunlight!  An overall soft feminine style that looked especially beautiful in contrast to the authentic rustic setting of Saddle Peak Lodge.

 

Ryan and Julia adore being in nature. When they saw the lodge they fell in love with the rustic charm and breathtaking mountain views. Their decision was made. Equally important to them was creating an event that was elegantly simple, they wanted to look back on their wedding day memories as fun and carefree. With Shannon from Affairs of The Heart to guide them, this is just how the day unfolded. So lovely.

Standing before a frame worthy view of the Santa Monica Mountains, the couple exchanged their wedding vows.

First Congregational Church Los Angeles

First Congregational Church Los Angeles Wedding & Vow Renewal

Michiko and Jean were college students when they fell in love and married in a civil ceremony. They made a promise to one another that one day, when they could afford it, they would have a wedding with their families and all of the trimmings. On their tenth wedding anniversary they fulfilled that promise and this beautifully planned wedding became a reality. 

The morning began at Mr. C’s Hotel in Beverly Hills with the preparations and first-look. The couple enjoyed a ride to the church in a vintage limousine. The ceremony was held at the historic First Congregational Church of LA an architectural wonder, modeled after the great cathedrals of France and England. After the ceremony guests were treated to an elegant soiree at the Carondelet House, originally built as a private residence in 1928. During the cocktail hour the couple treated their guests to an impressive display of their favorite fine cheeses and caviar served with authentic french baguette. Fine wine was served during the cocktail hour and bottles were also gifted as favors. The rustic dining room tables were set with vintage lace runners and opulent silver chargers. Sprigs of rosemary and blush pink and cream florals added lushness to the design. An elegant dinner was served and champagne toasts were given. Then the live music began and everyone was out of their seats! On the patio a barista took orders for strong coffee drinks as fresh Cuban cigars were being rolled.  And if things couldn’t get any better, later in the evening, the bride changed in to a shorter dress and the couple danced a jaw-dropping, sure footed, salsa number that had the crowd cheering!  

Congratulations, Michiko and Jean! Well done! A very special event worth the wait!
