A + S were JUNIOR high school sweethearts who finally tied the knot a decade plus later at the ever beautiful and classic Beverly Hills Hotel. It was a gorgeous California summer day and what I LOVE about California summer weddings…no rain plans necessary!
Here comes the bride, all dressed in white (and stunning diamond jewelry set she got on loan from her jeweler friend.)
Love these Renee Caovilla’s. See my former post to find out how you can possibly get your very own for half off and with no tax!
Let’s play a game: can you find these rings shown below in the picture above?

Amy and Sean’s entire wedding was very elegant and romantic, starting with this lovely garden ceremony.
BORROW THIS IDEA: Have your florist make fun designs with your aisle rose petals.

The menus were designed to match their invitations which incorporated their Taiwanese heritage with their garden romance theme.
HELPFUL TIP: Putting lounge furniture around the dance floor is a great way to keep guests from sitting way back at their tables and staying closer to where the action is at and keeping the dancefloor area looking more dense.
Heck, if you’re doing the custom dance floor you might as well get the custom decor on it for a few hundred more
Now here comes the bride, all dressed in RED! A changed into the traditional Chinese wedding outfit, qipao, for the last part of the reception. She’s a great model and hopped right on top of that piano. Go Amy!
After dancing for hours, it’s always nice to nourish and replenish your guests!
