Swanky 1920’s-Inspired Wedding at The Prado

By, January 29, 2015

The Roaring Twenties was an era bursting with Art Deco style, extravagant couture, and lush ornamentation. Rosalyn and Adam felt like these characteristics would be just perfect for their wedding – and they were so right!  Who wouldn’t want to attend a special celebration full of 1920s glitz and glamour?  To make their vision a reality, they called on the help of Francine Ribeau Events and Isari Flower Studio. Throughout the wedding, guests were transported back to this magical era, like a page out of The Great Gatsby. Check out the photos we captured below, and witness the transformation :)

The Grand Reveal

Rosalyn and Adam chose to do their first look prior to the ceremony.  Doesn’t she look stunning with her 1920’s finger wave hairstyle and intricate, beaded gown? He thought so too! ;) We loved photographing this moment!

The Party

The reception took place at The Prado, which boasts high ceilings, ornate lighting fixtures, and a grandiose stage. As soon as guests stepped foot in the ballroom, they were greeted by the sights and sounds of the 1920’s. The chairs and chargers were ornamented with gold, as was the art-deco cake. Fresh blooms were in abundance, in classical arrangements. There was even a soundtrack to match, because Rosalyn and Adam had hired The Heroes to entertain in big-band style.

Celebrating a U.S. Military Tradition | The Arch of Swords | May 17, 2013

By, May 17, 2013

The Arch of Swords is a time-honored tradition for U.S. Military couples. It is a symbolic pledge of loyalty to the newly married couple. When Erin and Danny were recently married at The Immaculata, a Catholic chapel on the University of San Diego campus, it was perfectly fitting that a formal Arch of Swords be incorporated into the recessional.

We saw this image of our bride and groom, sharing a kiss under the arch, and knew it had to be our Photo of the Week. The bridal couple is simply stunning, as is the beauty and elegance of The Immaculata, pictured in the background. What a timeless moment!
