real wedding: alex & shah 5/9/2014

One of my favorite venues is the Nixon Library. There is just something so classic and timeless about the space- it takes so little to make it look stunning! I was so excited to work with Alex and Shah, as they were a referral from a past bride of mine. It was also a huge bonus when I heard that they were tying the knot just minutes from my house at the Nixon!

A very regal feeling, we used purples and gold everywhere! Beautiful tall centerpieces and linen made for a stunning tablescape, and lighting by Visions Entertainment created the perfect party space. We had so many sweet personal details at this event. A giant puzzle served as our guest book. Guests were invited to sign pieces of the puzzle that fit together to complete an adorable picture of the couple. We also had family photos displayed on the ballrooms mantles-such a great way to showcase some amazing family members and memories.

The ceremony was heartfelt and sweet, these 2 really love each other! Then we moved into the reception and this group was ready to celebrate! Everyone knows Persian wedding guests love to dance, and this group was no exception! The dance floor was packed all night, as our DJ Jason played a mix of Persian beats and top 40 hits.   So much fun! We ended the night on a sweet note with a crepe maker cart serving late night snacks.

Take a look at some of my favorite images from the day by the amazing Matt & Maria of Lin & Jirsa Photographers. Enjoy!
