helen & mark – 4.17.10

Hello everyone!!  You know my season is in full swing when the blog gets ignored for a few weeks (gasp!).  I’m excited to kick off this week with a glimpse at a wedding Anna did a week ago at the beautiful Skirball Cultural Center.  You may remember that Anna’s first wedding sans moi took place here, so it holds an extra special place in her heart.  🙂  The wedding of Helen and Mark only solidified Anna’s command and love of all things Skirball.  🙂  I had the pleasure of participating in the planning process with Helen as well, and I absolutely adored working with her.  She epitomizes sweetness and class!!  Her elegant day was captured by Rudy Arpia; enjoy his photos below!

Wedding day essentials: a girl has to have THE dress, THE shoes, and of course, a favorite furry friend.  🙂

Helen looks absolutely flawless… and so does her bling!

The beautiful bride is carrying a romantic and textural bouquet of peonies, freesia and roses.

A joyful first look!

My favorite pic from the teaser images — the green leaves behind them are such a great contrast.

The recessional!

Reception in Ahmanson Hall.

Helen’s cake was red velvet — an L&S favorite!!

I looove this pic of Helen and Mark during their paebaek!  She looks adorable in her hanbok!

Although I wasn’t there for the wedding day, I felt truly blessed to play a role behind the scenes of the day!  Anna did marvelously (of course!), with her assistant Jen. Many thanks to Anna for being the most incredible associate coordinator EVER.  🙂 She is my right-hand girl!!

Helen & Mark: Thank you for entrusting us with the plans and preparation of your beautiful day!  Looking forward to seeing you when you get back from your honeymoon!  Lots and lots of love to you both!!  xoxo, A&A

Vendor Round-Up!

While this beautiful wedding was taking place, I was on the other side of the county coordinating another wedding!  That’s coming up next.  🙂  Have a marvelous day and see you all again soon!

xoxo, Angel
