Millennium Biltmore Hotel Wedding – Sarah and Nadiv

snblogtitleThough you wouldn’t guess it from the pictures, Sarah and Nadiv planned their lovely wedding in less than 6 months! When asked how they were able to do so, Sarah replied, “We were more focused on the people and the energy of our guests then on the table settings, decorations etc. Our wedding turned out beautiful and a special night for both Nadiv and I.”

From the bride: Nadiv and I met approximately 4 years ago through a mutual friend. Although, I found him very cute and charming nothing happened between us until a year later. We started dating and were engaged less than a year later. I couldn’t be any happier!

Being both Persian and Jewish, Sarah and Nadiv knew they wanted to include certain traditions in their wedding. Wedding coordinator, Lenell Events, not only helped the couple to incorporate a jovial procession during the ceremony but to make it a combination of both Persian and Jewish traditions.

The couple made it a point to have food available at all times during their wedding, including a room with exotic fruits, desserts and teas for the guests. They were able to do so with the help of caterer, Bahador Catering.

Seeing their wedding more as a celebration of family and friends, it was more important to Sarah and Nadiv that their big day was happy and fun, and that their guests were comfortable, and having fun.

From Moments By Wayne… Classic style and elegant touches were the plan for this beautiful garden wedding at The Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. The day started with a fun trolly ride through the streets of Beverly Hills so that the Bride and Groom could take pictures at various Beverly Hills Gardens with their bridal party and family. Once back at the hotel, the ceremony took place in the Whetherly Gardens complete with a chuppah designed to complement the surroundings and florals lining the aisle. The bride in her “Ventura” gown designed by Manuel Mota was the epitome of beauty and elegance as she strolled the aisle toward her groom. Details such as custom wedding programs, menus and escort cards were created using a crest designed by Sean (The Groom).

The evening was complete with abundant florals in all white and green adorning the tables in the ballroom to make for a festive setting.
