It is somewhat of a stereotype that society envisions little girls to be dreaming of a romantic, feminine fairytale wedding when they grow up, complete with an abundance of fragrant florals, a cascading ballgown, and a groom who is essentially a modern-day Prince Charming. If you were to actualize that vision into a sophisticated and contemporary ceremony, it might unfold exactly as David & Nicole’s upscale garden party wedding in Beverly Hills did.
The Beverly Hills Hotel is known for its elegant and prestigious weddings, and the union between Nicole and David was the perfect example of the epitome of a luxury Beverly Hills garden party wedding. From the blushing bridesmaids in pale pink gowns that looked straight out of a red-carpet feature, to the stunning ivory and pale pink floral installations, and the opulent reception banquet table unlike any we have ever seen before, the entire evening exuded luxurious feminine romance. Our team was busy throughout the entire day. The prevalence of details combined with our efforts to make sure no detail goes unnoticed kept us on our toes, seeking to notate each and every one of them.
However, beyond all the gorgeous details that arose from tireless planning and exquisite execution by all involved with this Beverly Hills luxury wedding, the evening meant so much more than the incredible aesthetics it accomplished. Nods to the Persain heritage and Jewish faith were present throughout the evening, making it symbolic and sentimental on so many levels. A family-centric focus is evident in warmth that is displayed in the event photography: the priceless expressions of laughter on the guests’ faces, the body language demonstrating the closeness of those who served witness to this beautiful union. The size of the guest list affirms that David and Nicole are a warm and welcoming couple who prioritize the relationships in their lives, inviting all in to participate with them in their love story. We consider ourselves fortunate to have been included as such.
Speaking of being fortunate to be included – we only wish that this beautiful couple had also included us in photographing their honeymoon! We are sure their excursion to Seychelles, the archipelago off the coast of East Africa, will be nothing short of extraordinary.
