We think that nothing is more lovely than delicate, sophisticated lace. Full of romance, lace adds a feminine and elegant touch to any bridal ensemble, from the veil all the way to the heels!

Annie and John’s Beverly Hills wedding is simply drop-dead gorgeous! The breathtaking setting of Greystone Mansion was perfect for an outdoor ceremony. We’re particularly entranced by the lush arrangements and pretty bouquets from Mitsuko Floral! Annie made several dress changes throughout the evening, but the show-stopping gown was the one she wore first, a structured Enzoani with a Martina Liana rhinestone-and-lavender ribbon sash from Blush Bridal Couture. And we love the bold pinks and purple of the bridesmaids dresses! For the reception at Wokcano Asian Restaurant & Lounge in Santa Monica, the terrace was turned into a sparkly pink-purple wonderland thanks to Nicole Marie Events. The gold-accented cake added an extra fancy shot to the entire occasion. See all of the stunning images from KT Merry Photography in the gallery!

Oh my loveliness! If your heart beats faster thinking about a magical wedding day across the pond (hands raised!), we have the perfect match for you! Wish Wonder Dream now offers wedding planning services in the stunning city of London and the surrounding English Countryside, making it possible to bring your classic English country affair or fairytale castle soiree to life. Britain offers picturesque and historic options for travel-loving couples, and Wish Wonder Dream makes the logistics of planning a wedding abroad as simple and enjoyable as possible!
Owner Whitney Wing Drake has long since considered London to be her very favorite city (editor’s note: it’s my favorite city too!), and while appearing as a guest speaker in 2012 at the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners, she connected with many British wedding coordinators who gave her tours of their favorite wedding venues, both inside and outside of the city. Whitney fell head over heels for these venues, especially Highclere Castle, the stunning set of Downton Abbey, and was excited to learn that it is available as a wedding venue outside of filming season! It was after this experience that Whitney knew that adding a new branch to Wish Wonder Dream would be her next big adventure, specializing in coordinating weddings across the pond.
Many couples are full of questions about planning a wedding in another country, but Wish Wonder Dream makes the process seamless with an international team. By pairing up clients with both American and British coordinators, every single detail, stateside or abroad, can be perfectly managed and executed. From their studio in Pasadena, Wish Wonder Dream meets with clients to handle stationery, attire, travel details and more. British coordinators assist with selecting venues, hiring vendors, hotel accommodations and other abroad-focused to-dos.
Wish Wonder Dream offers their British wedding planning services to a select number of clients each year, so be sure to head on over to their site for more information!

We just simply cannot stop gushing over Melissa and Joe’s incredible wedding at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach. Not a single thing was overlooked, thanks to planning and design from Jeannie Savage of Details Details Weddings & Events and White Lilac, Inc. We’re stunned at the gorgeousness of the outdoor ceremony setting—that amazing gazebo with chandeliers and the iron gates completely covered in lush pink garden blooms! Melissa’s dress is absolute perfection, with a full ruffled skirt made for dancing. The reception is equally stunning, and the images from Samuel Lippke Studios didn’t miss any of the exquisite details, from vintage decor to oversize pink and cream flower centerpieces to the gold and cream cake that echoes the motif of the intricate invitations. Pardon us while we stare a bit longer at all of the gorgeous images in the gallery!
