Happy 1st Anniversary ~ Alex & Mike

Susan recently had a great idea, as we didn't blog in 2008 we could revisit some of last year's weddings with an anniversary congratulations.
We had the pleasure of working with Alex & Mike to plan their perfect wedding at the beautiful Wayfarers Chapel and Los Verdes Country Club in Palos Verdes. Here are some of our favorite pics, courtesy of our good friends Josh & Michelle of MiBelle Inc.
Hair & Makeup by Sheree Pouls of Lips and Locks.

The gorgeous Wayfarers Chapel, what a breathtaking view through the glass ceiling and windows.
Some of the details that made Alex & Mike's wedding so personal, the mariachi band that greeted guests as they entered cocktails. The use of the Tiffany Blue color in everything from the signature cocktail, the bridesmaid's dresses, linens, to the favors at the end of the night.

The cake that Susan and I decorated! Looks pretty good.

Alex & Mike, we wish you years and years of the happiness you shared on your wedding day! Thank you for including us in your journey.Love,

The Bella Girls

Danielle & Michael ~ Beverly Hills Hotel

We just loved working with Danielle and Michael to plan their amazing wedding at the Beverly Hills Hotel. I remember first meeting Danielle, and when we asked her what her vision of the wedding was she said lots and lots of red roses and candlelight....did we make her dream a reality??

We love the shots that they used for the InStyle Blog feature, as well as the article in Celeb Life, but there were so many other detail shots that we had to share with you.

What a gorgeous bride Danielle made

Michael relaxing before seeing his bride for the first time.
We designed a custom circular pattern that we carried throughout the entire event, starting with the letterpressed invitations and ending with the custom gobo pattern on the dance floor and everything in between. Some gorgeous room shots
Can't forget our 'Ring Dog' Zoey, who was on model behavior all day.

Thank you to Danielle and Michael for letting us be a part of their very special day! We loved sharing the journey with them.

We couldn't have done this without the amazing team of vendors.
