I’m super excited to finally post this wedding! Carmel and I began with an email relationship since she and Manuel lived in New York. Not only did we plan their wedding long distance, but all of their family and wedding party was spread over the country as well – from Vancouver, Canada, Italy, Arizona and beyond!
We designed a elegant and chic wedding at the gorgeous Mountain Gate Country Club in Bel Air, CA with beautiful hues of Purples, Fuschia and Silver. It truly was a magical day!
Carmel and Manuel, thank you two for trusting me with your special day! It was such an honor to work with you 8 months…Carmel, I so miss all of our hundreds of emails back in fourth at all hours of the night! When you visit L.A. we so have to have a double date! Hope your honeymoon in Aruba was fantastic!
We started the day at the chic Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica.
Here’s a detail shot of Carmel’s gorgeous Badgley Mischka gown “Daisy” Be sure to check out the dress below, it becomes a completely different look later in the evening!
C+M’s “First Look”
They then headed to the beach for some pictures….love how the groom opted not to where shoes!
How adorable are these twin flower girls?
To get the party started, Carmel detached her train!
I’ll end with the sweet portrait
