Ali and Luke’s wedding took place at a private home on a hilltop above Simi Valley, California.
Both Ali and Luke wanted to incorporate their faith in the wedding. As guests walked through the arch down the aisle to theirs seats, they were greeted by handmade signs with scripture readings. The rows of rose petals lead you up to the magnificent 9 foot cross that Ali’s Father Steve made for the occasion which was perched on the hill which provided a stunning view of the entire city. Ali caught everyone’s eye as she came down the aisle with her Father in her gorgeous lace dress.
They turned a circle driveway with a large fountain in the middle into their own private reception area, with candles and beautiful florals. Other details included Blush, ivory, and gold accents which highlighted various areas and the tables. The centerpieces were perched in gold containers and showed off a blush and ivory mix of florals.
Wanting something unique, they opted for LA Paella Catering. Ben, the chef, prepared on site three different types of Paella. Not only did the flavorful fumes waft throughout the air during preparation but the pans of Paella cooking in front of the guests were a colorful addition to the dinner. From the coffee cart setup on a wagon to the cake set upon an antique dresser, no detail was spared in this backyard home wedding.
