Meet David & Debora.

Wedding: D&D 1

This beautiful couple was married on October 10th, 2009 at The London Hotel in West Hollywood. D&D are young, fun, funny, cool, and have amazing style. And I was truly honored to be their wedding coordinator.

Wedding: D&D 6

David is a fashion designer and the CEO of Kasil Jeans. His gorgeous wife, Debora, is an assistant designer, but you would have thought she was a model in her stunning Melissa Sweet gown, cathedral-length veil, Mirium Haskell pearl jewelry, and fabulous, floral-embellished Miu Miu shoes.

Wedding: D&D 2

The decor for their wedding was soft and romantic, yet modern. I love the paper poof balls and swags of hydrangea strands that hung above their ceremony altar.

There were enormous gold birdcages wrapped in and overflowing with blush pink roses, hydrangea, peonies, and dahlias flanking the ceremony and throughout the reception. Birds, branches, and beautiful vintage glassware popped up everywhere throughout their wedding.

Wedding: D&D 4

In lieu of a traditional champagne toast, the couple chose to do a tequila shot toast instead. Shot glasses were poured at tables and tray-passed during the reception to insure each and every guest could enjoy. (Did I mention that they’re fun?!) Their guests also had two specialty cocktails to choose from, which were created by the bride and groom: a spicy, citrus martini and a blackberry mojito.

The bride and groom barely left the dancefloor and demanded I join them for the last song of the night. So alongside the happy couple and their amazing friends, I danced, sang, and celebrated to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.”

Wedding: D&D 7

David and Debora are the best kind of bride and groom: kind, happy, and head-over-heels in love. They (along with the incredible vendor team listed below and my awesome assistants, Suzanne and Nicole) made my job of coordinating their wedding a fabulous experience. I know I will be joining the newlyweds for tequila shots very soon!
