This sweet sophisticated summer wedding produced and designed by Alexandra Kolendrianos took advantage of a perfect summer setting — the lush garden area of the Hotel Bel-Air. Before a backdrop of a floral chuppah designed by White Lilac Inc., these two lovebirds were wed while two other lovebirds — the hotel’s resident swans — floated by in the garden’s stream.
From the ceremony area, guests made their way into a tent set on the main grounds for dinner. The interior was draped in blush chiffon. Our lighting design Lonnie Thompson and his team softly illuminated the perimeter and tent ceiling and finished the look with a white-on-white break up pattern on the dance floor. After dinner, the 200 guests moved into the ballroom for an after party. Once again, soft lighting — this time in amber and pink — gave the room a glow while incredible floral “chandeliers” provided their own design illumination!
The three distinct looks were perfect for breaking up the evening into three memorable moments for all, but most importantly, for the wedding couple.
