Sara & Alex ~ Montage Beverly Hills

We loved working with Sara and her mom Tonia to plan this gorgeous Montage Beverly Hills wedding. Sara's family had a whirlwind over the past year with both daughters getting married. Tonia wanted to make sure that the entire day was representative of the individual style of Sara and Alex as well as to ensure an amazing evening full of dancing. When we say dancing, we mean the most gorgeous ballroom dancing we have ever seen in all of our years as wedding planners! Here are some of our favorite shots of the day, courtesy of Christine Marie Photography.

This was the grand finale to Sara & Alex's first dance. To see the dance in it's entirety, visit the Ashley Video blog.
Many thanks to everyone that made this day possible!

Venue ~ Montage Beverly Hills
Photographer ~ Christine Marie Photography

Sara & Alex, we wish you a lifetime of the love and happiness you shared on your wedding day. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be part of your special day. Thank you for allowing us to share in your journey.

For today's Frosting Friday feature, we thought a travel inspired cake in honor of the many travelers taking advantage of the three day weekend was perfect. This cake was part of an adventurous travel inspired wedding at Castle Green in Pasadena. Want to see more of this wedding? Visit Rodolfo Arpia's blog post.

Bella Girl in Training

In honor of my baby Bella's first official day of preschool, here are a couple of shots from a recent dress fitting excursion. Susan and I always joke that she is the perfect age to be a flower girl, and that we could rent her out to anyone that doesn't already have a flower girl in their wedding party. Though we might have to watch out that she doesn't try to steal the show!

A reflective moment in head to toe bridal attire, cathedral length veil and all.

She loves all things Princess and every weekend when we head out to a wedding she asks what the 'Princess' will be wearing. Let's see what she decides to wear in 30 years when she gets married.
