Whimsical Baroque Wedding at the Bard Mansion

"The inspiration behind Brian and Rachel's wedding was a combination of baroque details infused with a timeless whimsical ascetic. Everything about their special day was just what Rachel had sketched out, so it was a dream come true for the two of them to see her vision come to life. Rachel refers back to her wedding day as, I truly felt like a princess and Brian my prince as we celebrated. Brian and Rachel had a traditional ceremony at their church in Santa Monica and decided not to have a first look; however, the look on Brian’s face when he saw Rachel for the first time walking down the aisle was priceless. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Brian and Rachel took a drive up the coast together to their reception venue in a vintage car Brian surprised Rachel with! . Rachel’s wedding reception decor reflected a little Marie Antoinette, a splash of Coco Chanel, and a hint of Beauty and the Beast. The guests were greeted at the venue with a escort card decal mirror with the saying ‘Be Our Guest’. The perfume bottle table numbers designed by Jasmin Michelle Designs paired perfectly with the draping pearl accents hanging off the baroque style frame menu. Stella Blooms Design beautiful centerpieces were accented with a single rose under a glass dome. . The evening was an affaire to remember as Brian and Rachel dined in their very own secret garden filled with love."
