Last night I assisted my friend Beth Helmstetter of Beth Helmstetter Events with a wedding at the Hotel Bel Air in Bel Air, CA. It was as gorgeous as expected. I love the Hotel Bel Air--I love it more than the Beverly Hills Hotel, in fact. It is so secluded, luxurious, and conveys that perfect sunny Southern California feel with the pink bougainvillea covering the pink hotel. I'd love to hide away there like Oprah does!
Anyway, on to the wedding:
Ashley, the bride, is originally from Texas, so she wanted to convey that Southern/Shabby Chic feel. Magnolia branches and faux Magnolia "trees" decorated the spaces along with pink and cream roses, hydrangeas, and tiny pink rose sprays in silver vases and mint julep cups. My favorite decor aspect were the antique silver serving trays used to display the escort cards. It was a lovely wedding!
