A Cherry Blossom Wedding

June 29th, 2015

We absolutely loved planning this gorgeous spring time wedding! It was a traditional Korean wedding that started at the beautiful First Congregational Church in Los Angeles where the Christian ceremony was held. If you are in Los Angeles and have not had a chance to visit this church, please do so when you get a chance-it is stunning! From the ceremony, we shuttled all guests to the Biltmore Hotel for the reception. Guests were escorted into the Tiffany ballroom where they were greeted by sounds of classic jazz, while the couple performed the traditional Paebaek ceremony, or bowing ceremony. Traditions and customs are one of our favorite part of planning weddings and this ceremony brings a lot of fun and color. The couple changes into traditional Korean attire and the idea behind the ceremony is for the couple to bow in front of elders out of respect-quite a lovely tradition. The reception ballroom was full of cherry blossoms with the color tones being golds and blushes. Guests enjoyed a 4 course meal while a 9 piece band performed the likes of Sinatra and Buble, as well as top 40 hits that guests danced the night away to!   Exquisite Events Vera Wang 150221-Kim-Wedding-3091 150221-Kim-Wedding-4030-Edit 150221-Kim-Wedding-3127 Exquisite Events floral bouquet 150221-Kim-Wedding-5216-Edit 150221-Kim-Wedding-4907-Edit 150221-Kim-Wedding-3705 150221-Kim-Wedding-5371 150221-Kim-Wedding-5327 150221-Kim-Wedding-5562 150221-Kim-Wedding-5558-Edit 150221-Kim-Wedding-5548 150221-Kim-Wedding-5652 150221-Kim-Wedding-5723 150221-Kim-Wedding-6673-Edit 150221-Kim-Wedding-6730 150221-Kim-Wedding-7139-Edit 150221-Kim-Wedding-7169 150221-Kim-Wedding-7112-Edit 150221-Kim-Wedding-7249 150221-Kim-Wedding-7353-Edit 150221-Kim-Wedding-7471 150221-Kim-Wedding-7101 150221-Kim-Wedding-7066 150221-Kim-Wedding-7044 150221-Kim-Wedding-7033 150221-Kim-Wedding-8697 150221-Kim-Wedding-7890   Enjoy and have an Exquisite Day!!

  • #Repost @archdigest - #JacquesArpels was inspired by the clover shapes in architecture inspiring him to design his famous Alhambra collection, which is also our inspiration for one of our upcoming events! #inspirationeverywhere #designinspiration #eventdesign #alhambra #moorisharchitecture #vancleefarpels ・・・
Half a century ago, inspired by the decorative patterns Jacques Arpels observed on his travels, @vancleefarpels launched Alhambra—a clover-shaped gold medallion resembling a Moorish quatrefoil. “As an architectural element, it appears in almost every culture,” says Van Cleef & Arpels’s current president and CEO, Nicolas Bos. “In jewelry, it’s just as adaptable.” Today the French luxury brand remains captivated by the motif, having reimagined it in myriad styles and stones. This past May, to mark the Alhambra collection’s 50th anniversary, Van Cleef launched nine new pieces with a party at the 16th-century El Badi Palace in Marrakech. While celebrating with them, AD found a few more not-to-miss sights in Marrakech, including the  14th-century Islamic college Ben Youssef Madrasa pictured here.
