If you’re looking for a romantic wedding that’s ALL about the details, these nuptials at KEMPA VILLA in the SoCal desert is a can’t miss. Kendra & Diallobe opted for a music-themed wedding because, well, if it weren’t for music, they may have never met! (They both work and met in the industry so their lives pretty much revolve around it.) Not to mention, nothing makes a wedding memorable for everyone involved quite like a good playlist, right?
Other details include a ceremony aisle lined with fresh and dried florals by Joy of Bloom Florals, an incredible twinkle-light tented reception, and the fact that every single guest dressed to impress. See what we mean as you peruse the dreamiest images by Matoli Keely Photo, designed by Fawn Events below:
But first, the bride’s feather mini dress and Chanel booties for the rehearsal. So so fun, right?
Hello, Manolo Blahnik something blue shoe of our DREAMS!
On the big day, she donned a romantic modern Sareh Nouri gown with a sultry dramatic slit as you’ll see below…
Kendra didn’t have an official bridal party but she told all of her best girlfriends to buy dresses in the color scheme of the wedding…soft metallics. Don’t they look gorgeous!?
The bride and groom were all about making it a magical experience for their loved ones, so they enlisted Candace of Fawn Events to create a wedding celebration like no other.
Talented violist Jeremy Green was there to welcome guests.
Their pup Maui even dressed the part!
How fabulous is Kendra’s mother, Erlene, in her shimmery Jenny Packham.
Every officiant should be this stylish, right?! That’s Kendra’s best friend De’Ara and she’s wearing Taller Marmo.Joy of Bloom Florals was behind all the gorgeous floral details throughout. Just wait till you see the reception arrangements…
Btw, shoutout to the groom for this John Varvatos look! Grooms-to-be, are you taking notes?
A tent of twinkle lights, suspended florals, and custom dance floor? Yes, yes, and YES!
They led guests to their seats with a custom boombox-inspired seating chart featuring Kendra & Diallobe’s wedding mixtapes with escort card cassettes. So cool!
Fun idea for custom wedding cocktails!
Later in the night, Kendra swapped the gown for this sequin mini dress and those Chanel booties. Obsessed!
Congrats to Kendra & Diallobe!
