Romantic Elegance Wedding in Fuschia, Blush Pink, Ivory and Gold: Laura + Raul (UPDATED)

Wedding Style: Glamour, romance, and sophistication with hints of bling
Event Design Concept: Blush pink, ivory, fuschia, and gold
Dream Team:  Scroll to the end of this post

Crystal candelabras, pinks, golds, white seamless dance floor, lush flowers...that's how Laura envisioned her wedding to be. Raul envisioned a rather simpler wedding with very little pink. It was the battle of the sexes, however, I was able to come up with a little bit of both to please my clients. The end result: a fabulous fusion of glamour, romance, and sophistication that the bride and groom loved...not to mention the guests and a few gawkers, too. I love it when I give them the "WOW" factor. Almost everything was adorned with crystals to incorporated the bling factor like the menu cards, bride & groom chair signs, gold overlays, centerpieces, the bride's attire and bouquet, and the wedding cake!

Their wedding was photographed by the wonderfully talented Rudy Arpia, who was assisted by Miguel Mayo. Thanks to my assistant Pia Pagkatotohan for assisting me throughout the planning process and fine tuning the details. Thanks to my day-of assistants, Portia Gale and Cynthia Yi. You gals are fabulous!

The day started out bright and early at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles where Laura and her party got dolled up.

Laura and Raul tied the knot at the gorgeous Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. After the ceremony they stopped by the Disney Concert Hall to take a few pictures.
