Jewish Bel Air wedding: Danielle + Brian
This Hotel Bel Air wedding is simply g-o-r-g. Totally elegant and soft and romantic. But also so, so fun. Bride Danielle said they wanted a romantic, ethereal spring wedding with a dash of tradition. They also wanted a venue that was meaningful to them as Los Angeles natives, which they scored, and photos they could look forward to reliving the day through… Another score with the photogs at Our Labor of Love.
How cute are they? Danielle says finding the dress was the hardest part of planning. There’s a ton of pressure in finding “the one” but she had so many ideas the decision was tough. This ivory Lazaro gown with a silk satin organza bodice and jewel encrusted waistband looks like *the* dress to us!
A few favorite memories, c/o our bride…
Having both sets of Grandparents walk down the aisle was truly special. My Aunt was our surprise flower girl. With a wreath in her hair, she threw petals from a basket while holding a martini. The crowd’s reaction was priceless. Ha, so presh!
Bash, Please shared D + B’s spring vision exactly. That’s Danielle’s biggest takeaway from planning: find a planner you trust. Can’t go wrong with this team!
Danielle tells it, We have always loved the Hotel Bel Air. Both born and raised in Los Angeles, the magical hideaway in the canyon has always been a special place for us. Brian’s parents were married there and so were several other family members. The classic Bel Air charm of this secret hideaway made us feel like we were out of town. We knew that this would always be our special place, and could go back for our anniversary each year and relive the magic.
Congrats, Brian and Danielle!
