If Part One got you excited about Benny and Marion’s sweet downtown LA wedding, then you’re in for a treat with Part Two! Their classic black and white reception felt elegant, refined, and welcoming all at the same time, particularly being tucked beneath the arc deco landmark that is the Central Library.
Cafe Pinot is one of those outdoor garden venues that feels like you’re inside because it’s so cozy being surrounded on all sides by the romantic buildings and skyscrapers of Los Angeles. The walls are the buildings, the ceiling is the sky full of stars, and the warmth is the blurred sounds of the bustling city all around.
Benny and Marion kept the reception decor classic and elegant with a charming design of white florals from Flower Allie – sweet tulips, draped orchids, and creamy roses were accented with textured white florals in mismatched vases on every table. A small jar of honey welcomed guests to their seat with the phrase Meant to Be or M2B (Benny and Marion’s initials), and stories about their relationship were written on the back of the table numbers. Guests took polaroids during cocktail hour for Benny and Marion to keep, and the night felt emotional and celebratory from start to finish!
Thanks again to Serenity Events for designing and coordinating such a spectacular evening!
Benny and Marion: I can’t thank you enough for your authentic hearts. It was incredibly joyful for us to watch you both genuinely walk through your day and take your time to experience every moment to its fullest. I love that you both aren’t afraid to love – that you cherish one another deeply and hold tightly to the bond you’ve created. You are going to live such fulfilling lives together, and we’re honored to have been a part of it!
