Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding

We had the honor of assisting in planning this fun Alice in Wonderland themed wedding for Eileen and Bogdan! We loved how they incorporated elements from the movie without going over board. Our favorite detail was the centerpieces that were modeled after “painting the roses red” Flowers by Cina did an amazing job pulling that off perfectly!

We’re all madly in love here with this Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass themed wedding.

About the Waterfront Hilton:

Located on the coastline of Southern California, Huntington Beach gives every spot at the Waterfront Beach Resort a striking ocean view. Dig your toes in the sand while looking into the eyes of your other half and hear the waves crashing around you during the ceremony. The Waterfront Resort is committed to making each moment you have together unforgettable, like sharing the first kiss of your marriage in front of a picturesque sunset fading behind the nearby pier. Whether it’s a traditional ceremony or an exotic tropical theme, the staff is committed to customize every space so there are no unexpected surprises.

Our Mission Inn Wedding Featured in Ceremony Magazine

We are so thrilled to share that our wedding for Melody and Abraham at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa is currently featured in the Orange County Edition of Ceremony Magazine (on news stands now). Their gorgeous ceremony was held in the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel and their reception had a classic style that was flawless in the Grand Parisian Ballroom as you can see below.  Shawn from Ambiance Designs did a stunning job on their floral designs!

This couple has a love for horses; Abraham owns race horses and Melody shows them so it was important to them to add an element of that to reflect their personalities. They decided to name their tables after the horses and each table had a photo of the horse that also served as their table numbers. Another fun fact is that Melody and Abraham love 80’s music so they chose the band Grilled Cheese Soundwich from Undercover Live and they rocked it! They were such a fun couple to work with and we were honored to be a part of their special day!

About Mission Inn Hotel and Spa:

As a National Historic Landmark and member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America, The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa evokes the romance and enchantment of a European castle with a design conceived by some of California’s most famous architects. Yet following more than a century of meticulous restorations and enhancements, one of the country’s most historic hotels now stands among its most up-to-date buildings.

The majestic visuals remain in the form of grand archways, flying buttresses, lofty domes and towers, but old-world décor has given way to modern sophistication – with rooms, suites and event venues showcasing the style and comfort that today’s travelers expect.The hotel that delivered a new era of grace and refinement to Riverside continues to do so to this day.

A Halloween Wedding at The Mission Inn Hotel and Spa

To kick off October we decided to share this gorgeous wedding for Lindsay and Justin that took place last Halloween at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa. Our couple designed every flawless detail of their Halloween themed wedding down to the low lying fog that filled the chapel upon Lindsay’s entrance to meet her groom down the aisle.

The guests were guided through the ceremony by the fate of the exquisitely designed tarot card programs and into the reception staged in a Spanish Art Gallery. As the guests took their handcrafted potions to find their seats, the newlyweds grand entrance was delivered by clips from the legendary ghost host of Disney’s Haunted Mansion and the classic Dracula theme of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.

The bride and groom cut the anatomical bleeding heart cake together in traditional fashion and danced like Bowie to black & white flickering Halloween cartoons from the 1920’s. The happy couple infected all with their maniacal love, their luscious laughter, and the core essence of who they are which shone through everything that brought their big day together. Under the warm glow of candlelit apothecary bottles, oversized glass bell jars and plenty of black calla lilies they left all their guests, and us, wishing for more. It was so much fun to see all of the detail come together and to be a part of this wedding!

We are proud to say that this wedding was featured on The Knot.com and on Pretty and Inked Magazine!
