Gia Canali sent us this pretty wedding she photographed recently. Logistically it was a challenge, but the bride and groom (with the flawless direction of Heidi from Red25) pulled it off. Their ceremony was at the groom’s family church in Downey (which, for non-locals, is not in LA proper) followed by the reception at a friend’s beautiful home in Agoura Hills (which is also not in LA proper, but utterly in the opposite direction), which meant guests had to drive over an hour from one venue to the next. But guess what? It worked out perfectly and from the looks of it, the reception was worth the drive.
The insanely beautiful balsa wood and coral bouquet was made by the very talented Krislyn. How amazing would that be to have a keepsake that doubles as a pretty bit of decor in your home for years to come? Balsa wood flowers have got to be the next trend. They are extraordinary.
Amazingly a different florist in Downey did the bridesmaid bouquet and a third florist did the table decor. Somehow it all came together perfectly.
Um, hello Tuscan countryside! Doesn’t this look eerily familiar to the tablescape Jillian did with Mel Barlow in Italy last week? And bare wood tables are so luxurious in way. How pretty.
SUCH a beautiful house! If any of you have friends with amazing homes, get married there! So personal and different from a traditional venue.
Congratulations, Rosalinda and Aris! And thanks so much for sharing this with us, Gia.
