Calamigos Ranch Malibu Wedding: Katie & Steve

Katie & Steve were so great to work with! Kind, Classy people who trusted me to design and plan a gorgeous wedding for them! They got married February 1 and I so love this Californian Winter Wedding we created! I adore how much we used evergreens without it looking the least bit Christmasy!

August 16, 2014

Saturday, August 16, 2014 Amber Events has THREE, count ‘em, three weddings! So exciting! The descriptions of the weddings below show just how versatile the Amber Events team is!  Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook with #threeweddingsoneday

 

Cyprus Sea Cove

Cyprus Sea Cove, a private estate in Malibu, is a gorgeous, intimate, and perfectly Californian place to wed!  Brandon, an operations analyst for the Houston Astros, is Jewish and Leah, a financial analyst, is Catholic, and they are being married by one of their friends in a non-denominational ceremony. An electric harp will wow the guests during the ceremony and cocktail hour and then the guests will dance to a DJ under bistro lights strung over the great lawn. The wedding décor will be a fusion of sleek Z Gallery and a rustic barn. A unique color palette of mustard yellow, amber, bronze, and gold  will look gorgeous on a mixture of square tables covered with linens and long wooden table with Chantilly lace runners.

Amber will be the lead coordinator for this wedding supported by Ana, Patricia, and Whitney.

 

Vibiana

The Vibiana wedding is a Muslim wedding between two former Yale students, Altaf and Sameer. Altaf is a doctor and Sameer is a lawyer. There will be traditional Muslim, Indian, and Persian customs including a Sofreh, a Zaffe band, and no alcohol! There will be entertainment such as a surprise appearance by the UCLA Bhangra Troupe and Video Presentation. There will also have a poet on site typing up custom romantic poems for guests on her typewriter. So romantic! Sameer and Altaf will do their grand exit and make way back to the hotel on a horse and carriage.

Nira will be the lead coordinator for this wedding supported by Michelle, Vanessa, and Tricia.

Natural History Museum

The Natural History Museum wedding is the long anticipated union of Gowri and Anshul, a couple who has been together for 15 years! Gowri, a law professor and Anshul, the CEO of a startup company, have worked for equality and said that they would not wed until gay marriage was legal in California. The ceremony will be officiated by a Judge who Gowri clerked for and they will walk down the aisle with their 18 month old son to “Blind Mary” by Gnarls Barkley played by a string quartet. The cocktail hour will be held around the “dueling dinosaurs” in the grand foyer of the museum and the reception will be held in the North American Mammal Hall. The guests will be seated supper club style at round, square, and rectangle tables from 4 to 12 people and the centerpieces will be fun and unique geometric terrariums filled with moss, romanesco broccoli, air plants, and tiny mammal figurines. A lounge with games will be set up for guests to enjoy post 5 course wine-paired dinner and a DJ will be on cue if guests feel like kicking their heels up.

Katelynn will be the lead coordinator for this wedding supported by Kat, Montana, and Melissa.
