Back at one of our favorite locations – The Portofino Hotel and Marina to experience the second wedding event for our friends Audra and Vijay. The bride looked absolutely stunning in her short floral wedding dress! We enjoying seeing all the guests from the night before in such different attire and ready to celebrate some more!
After Audra & Vijay read their custom vows to each other, the celebration began. Even though this was a more customary themed reception, little hints of their Indian culture were present in the wedding favors and the baskets of gifts available for the women. A traditional wedding cake was the centerpiece of the room. The stunning cherry blossom decorations from Torrance Bakery were so beautiful.
It was a great party and definitely a family affair. The Charming Little Event Company was thrilled and honored to be part of such memorable evenings with Audra and Vijay and their family and friends. We wish you many years of harmony, joy and laughter!

On this beautiful Friday evening in Palos Verdes The Charming Little Event Company had the unique privilege of coordinating the cultural ceremony of Audra and Vijay. What an honor it was to be witnesses to such tradition. We were first in awe of how beautiful the amazing views were at this home but more importantly the stunning attire from the guests stole your attention. The most vibrant colors permeated the scene from each outfit to the decorative décor.
After the guests took part in a traditional Pooja ceremony they enjoyed some delicious food from Manohar’s Delhi Palace. The wonderful aromas of the Indian food were inviting the guests back for seconds and thirds. After dinner what a treat it was to see the talents being displayed in the Sangeet ceremony. There was singing, dancing, instruments played all to the rhythm of love for the couple. A gorgeous evening on many levels.
Thank you Audra, Vijay and your families for the experience and for sharing your beautiful culture with The Charming Little Event Company.

Donna and Tim are a very special couple and the The Charming Little Event Company was lucky enough to be a part of their intimate event. They had a beautiful ceremony at Mariners Church in Irvine. This is a gorgeous location that lends itself to breathtaking photos. For the reception guests headed over to Fig and Olive in Newport Beach. A hip and top-rated restaurant, which was the perfect place for such a reception. Immediately when you enter you are taken into a Mediterranean oasis with real olive trees inside, a courtyard, lush greenery and tranquil spaces.
The floral accents by Greenleaf Designs were stunning with their array of color. From orange, and lavender to yellow, white and green – they were definitely a focal point that commanded your attention. Guests picked up their escort cards from a garden trellis, adorned with fresh herbs and pretty greenery. One of our favorites was the kid’s table complete with markers, crafts and all the items a kid would need to be entertained. We love when we see a twist on wedding favors and Donna and Tim surprised guests when each one was given a special card letting them know that a donation had been made in their honor to Life Impact International on their behalf, along with hand made key chains in a variety of designs. It’s truly touching to see such selflessness being modeled on such a special day.
Donna and Tim, thank you for letting The Charming Little Event Company walk with you on your journey today. We wish you many blessings as you begin your new life together.

Who doesn’t love a February Wedding? Love is already all around you with Valentine’s Day decorations and reminders about that special someone in your life. Well, for Kathy and Steve this was the perfect way to celebrate the love they have for each other, by getting married on the sand in Redondo Beach and then celebrating with close friends & family at the Portofino Hotel. We just adore on-the-sand ceremonies and the way the guests took off their shoes to make the path was adorable!
This was an all around beach themed wedding and reception. Starting from the hand written surfboard announcement to the sea shell name cards, every detail was complimentary to the next. Guests felt as if they were on a remote island as they viewed the sand, sprawling ocean and elegant shell décor . Simple, yet elegant gold accents made the room sparkle as the night carried on. Finally, as the couple exited to sparklers above them and the marina light reflecting on the water the couple was sent off with a bang.

A beautiful day in August was begun with an unforgettable ceremony at the Wayferer’s Chapel in Rancho Pales Verdes. Once the ceremony was finished, Christine and Ricardo made their way to the Portofino Hotel for their reception. As the evening began you could feel the excitement as two cultures were represented in the celebration. From the Mariachi Band to the DJ you couldn’t help but feel blessed to be a part of this evening’s celebration. This simple and elegant reception was just beautiful with it’s traditional soft colors of white and pink. We love the fun parasol shot with the Bridal Party. This was a memorable celebration and a beautiful story of love.
As the sweetheart table chairs say – may you always be “Better Together” and thank you for letting The Charming Little Event Company be a part of your memory.

The Charming Little Event Company was delighted to attend an Open House event hosted by Monico Fusion Decor on Thursday March 26th. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces all in one room. With spring upon us and wedding season in full swing we were excited to see some table displays and receive visuals on some new decor items hitting the market. Vintage has become very popular these days and you can tell by the gold and neutral colors represented.
Our favorite table setting was the vintage table that would be perfect for a dinner party or intimate rehearsal dinner. We are so happy for Angel and his team, celebrating this new location and updates to their rental line. Thanks to Angel and all the vendors for a beautiful evening.
