Kathy and Steve, Portofino Hotel and Beach

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.

Congratulations to Kathy and Steve! Thank you for letting us be a part of such and intimate and memorable moment in your lives. hn4a6727_std-Lhn4a7617_std-Lhn4a8333_std-Lhn4a8120_std-Lhn4a7385_std-Lhn4a7384_std-Lhn4a8397_std-Lhn4a8714_std-Lhn4a8314_std-Lhn4a8993_std-L The Team:

Christine and Ricardo, Wayfarer’s Chapel and Portofino Hotel

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.
