Anyone who has ever worked a wedding with me knows that on the wedding day I turn superstitious as all get out. If anyone says “wow, this is a really smooth wedding” I tell them to shut their mouth or they’ll jinx the day! But Rachel and Brad’s wedding was perfect. Smooth, flawless, and perfect. And they were the nicest couple in the world and their family and friends were equally wonderful. It was a great day.

Rachel and Brad live in Washington, D.C. where Brad is an attorney for the U.S. Justice Department and Rachel works for a Jewish youth center. Their faith and heritage is extremely important to them and they chose the Stephen S. Wise Temple in the Sepulveda Pass for their ceremony and reception.
Rachel’s mom, Nancy, lives here in LA and with the help of email, conference calls, and a three day planning extravaganza we planned the wedding.

We wanted to bring a vibrant springtime feeling to the day, so we kept the flowers white, green, with hints of lavender and purple. Linens were pale shimmery periwinkle . Florist Jackie Combs designed the centerpieces of alternating Manzanita branches with candles hanging and multiple vases with Cherry Blossoms, Hyacinth, and Tulips.

The traditional Jewish ceremony was beautiful with both fathers saying a blessing over Rachel and Brad under the Chuppah. Their Ketubah was truly a work of art: custom designed, hand painted, with custom cut out artwork. It was gorgeous!

The reception kicked off with an upbeat and fun Hora and the evening was rocked by my favorite band, Entourage by DeBois Entertainment. That group really knows how to get the party started! For favors, not only did Rachel and Brad provide Diddy Reese cookies in pretty boxes on each guest’s charger, they also had an ice cream cookie sandwich bar for later in the evening. That, along with the cake from Vanilla Bake Shop, was a hit!

The entire day was classy, fun, and sophisticated–just like Rachel and Brad.
