Anita & Matt’s Celebration Weekend

The union of two families is so beautiful, isn’t it? Anita, of Indian descent, and Matt, of Jewish descent, had fallen in love and decided to honor both of their families’ traditions in one single weekend.


First stop: Malibu West Beach Club, where family and friends came dressed in traditional Indian garments. The evening included a baraat, during which the groom processes to the venue atop a white horse, accompanied by his family and friends. It’s basically a walking dance party, complete with DJ and drums! The wedding ceremony was stunning, with Anita in her bold, red dress and the ocean as the background. The ceremony was also, of course, bookended with romantic strolls on the beach.


The following day was spent at Hummingbird Nest Ranch, where some of Matt’s family traditions took center stage. This day’s ceremony was held under a Jewish chuppah and included the breaking of the glass, a tribute to the Jerusalem Temple. The reception was held on the other side of the property’s mansion, where the team from The Enchanted Florist had decorated in deep shades of maroon, fuchsia, and purple. A second night of dancing, and the two were made complete.

Fellow nature-lovers–this one’s for you!

Our own, Jackie Hsu, recently collaborated with Cause We Can Events to create dip-dyed linens using natural ingredients. Blueberries and turmeric are great to use in decorating because 1) they provide beautiful pigment, and 2) they’re safe for you and the environment!

Not one, not two, but three…!

Here at Amber Events, we pride ourselves on the relationships we’ve harvested with all vendors wedding-related in Los Angeles. One of them is with Vibiana, a cathedral-turned-event-venue in historic downtown. This past summer, we were fortunate to have been featured on their blog as a “preferred planner.” The topic? The Modern Bride. Part one defines the modern bride, part two spotlights the challenges of planning a modern bride’s wedding, and part three focuses on the execution of that planning. If you’re looking for a unique perspective on planning weddings, take a look!

Ah, the crisp air of autumn. If you’re living in Southern California (like us), we know what you’re thinking–FINALLY! Check out this featurette on Soleil, an Australian jeweler, for this season’s wedding inspiration. The wedding of our former clients, Rachel and Jared, just captured the essence of fall, with its twist on the classic fall palette, embellished with brass and gold. Screen Shot 2015-10-27 at 1.44.36 PM
