There’s so much to be excited about with Stefan and Ivette’s black tie wedding at The Nixon Library – the drop dead gorgeous couple, the fabulous decor, the elegant location… but my favorite part? The friends and the celebration! Ivette warned me with our very first phone call that their guests were going to be dancing and celebrating late into the night, but this only made me more excited because when a fun and excited group like this comes together, it’s the perfect ingredient for an off the hook wedding!
Let’s begin Part Two right after the ceremony when we got to spend some quality time with this lovely duo…
Those lashes and those smiles… *SWOON*
There’s one thing I know to be true about Ivette – she can rock that gown!
And Stefan will always rock that charming grin!
These two love to dance and Ivette made sure to do plenty of twirling in her darling gown.
Inside, the final touches were ready on the gold and black decor in the stately ballroom that mimics a state room at the White House.
I love the gold drapes, the sculpted centerpieces, and the sparkling chandeliers.
Every little thing was ready for the black tie event – literally.
Stefan and Ivette got to see the ballroom before guests arrived (love when our couples get to see everything!), and they took a moment to practice their first dance.
Once everyone sat down and the toasts began, the night touched all of our hearts.
The night melted away into dinner and dancing…
And just like Ivette had promised, everyone danced and celebrated HARD until the wee hours of the morning!
Stefan and Ivette: Everything about you two makes me smile on the inside because of your genuine spirits and lively hearts. You’re fun, you’re real, and you’re seriously fabulous! Thank you for letting us be a part of your crazy celebration – the moments we got to share with you will live in our hearts forever!
