Krista & Michael: Lombardi House Wedding

Love is classic. Shining. Timeless. And sometimes, true love is effortless. That is exactly how Krista and Michael's love feels, and that's why their wedding day at Lombardi House in Hollywood felt so perfect for them.

When Gavin James performed "Book of Love" during the ceremony, the dreamlike perfection of the day could not have been more moving.

When Michael's brother stood to give his toast, he mentioned his brother's passion for finding the best of all things. These two clearly know they have found the best in each other. After that, it was time for one of the greatest parties we've ever witnessed. Have you ever seen a bride and groom crowd surf at their wedding reception??

I have to say that Krista and Michael's style is as effortless as their love. With a classic black, white, and gold palette, every part of this day shone with Hollywood glamour! In the welcoming green and white oasis of Lombardi House, it felt almost like stepping back in time.

Krista and Michael, thank you for including us in all of the heartfelt, tear-jerking, and flat-out rocking moments of your day! May every day ahead of you be just as effortlessly joyful and beautiful!

Adrienne & Chris: Boardners Hollywood Wedding

In honor of Throwback Thursday, I get to share one of my very favorite weddings from last year! This event had all of the drama and class you'd expect from an Old Hollywood soiree - and a love story that belongs on the silver screen.

Adrienne and Chris wanted their wedding celebration to be a grand one-of-a-kind party, full of surprises and personality. They enlisted the help of Rebel Belle Weddings, whose skills in pulling off jaw-dropping unconventional events definitely came in handy. The dark and luxurious accommodations at Boardner's Hollywood provided the perfect setting for this lavish wedding. The celebration was full of many surprises, from our SlowMo Booth and a silhouette cutter providing entertainment, to a grand entrance filled with confetti and clown noses!

With the gothic interior of Boardner's sparkling with candlelight and filled to the brim with family and friends dressed to the nines, this night focused on a bride and groom whose love for each other shines with a unique elegance - just listen to those vows.

 From Adrienne's sparkling gold gown (with a breakaway skirt) and wrist bouquet, to Chris's formal kilt, to the lavish candlelit setting, the style of this wedding was absolutely stunning. Everything sparkled - even the cake, a model of the Golden Gate and Brooklyn bridges, was covered in lights!

Adrienne and Chris, we love the way that you live and love boldly! You two are brilliant hearts, who shine even brighter together. Happy Anniversary! Here's to many more years of love, celebration, and surprises.

Introducing the SlowMo Booth | Hollywood Glam at Boardner's

I am über excited to unveil this video and launch a brand new product for your celebration: *drumroll please* may I present the SlowMo Booth by The Adventures Of!

There is no better way to get the party moving! These wedding guests got crazy and creative, and when you take that action down to one-tenth the speed, things get really awesome. Why limit your guests to a photo booth when you can have a unique slow-motion music video to remember the celebration?

LIGHTS. CAMERA. CONFETTI.

I knew this was going to be fun, but Adrienne, Chris, and their friends knocked it out of the park. When the groom is a clown college grad and the guest list is full of entertainers, it's bound to be a good time. (Nerd alert: yes, that's Wil Wheaton and his beautiful wife Anne at 0:25, etc. I fangirled so hard when I saw him that I had to leave to avoid embarrassing myself. Wil, if you're reading this, Josh and I are really big fans of w00tstout. and you.)

Boardner's in Hollywood provided the perfect setting, full of mystery and Old Hollywood glamour. We loved taking over the courtyard stage for slow-motion fun! Thanks to Adrienne's imagination and the fabulous planning efforts of Rebel Belle Weddings, this was a breathtaking Hollywood bash!

In addition to the SlowMo Booth, this wedding had so many amazing, unique, personal touches, and I can't wait to share it all with you. Keep an eye on the blog for Adrienne and Chris's full wedding film, coming soon!

DFTBA,
