Audra and Vijay, The Portofino Hotel

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!

Donna and Tim, Mariners Church & Fig and Olive

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.

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.

Kelly and Alvand, Portofino Hotel

We love doing weddings at the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach.  The warm summer’s night & July sunset was simply stunning and the perfect setting for Kelly and Alvand’s wedding ceremony. Guests were greeted by a beautiful mirror that listed the entire bridal party in custom handwriting that was used throughout the reception.

When you think of a beach wedding Kelly and Alvand’s fall right into line with it’s nautical theme and cool colors. The magenta pop of color gave a modern twist to the beach theme. From lantern centerpieces to sand and sea shell candle holders the bride and groom felt as if they were on their own private beach. There was no corner left unturned during the reception. The details and accents complimented the theme and guests as they went for the candy bar or out on the patio for a sunset view over the marina.

Congratulations to Kelly and Alvand. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and we thank you for letting us share in your special day.

AJ and Kelly, Harborside Restaurant

What a beautiful October wedding we were privileged to be a part of today. AJ and Kelly had a beautiful reception at the Harborside Restaurant in Newport Beach or better known as historic Downtown Balboa Island. The Grand Ballroom sits atop the restaurant overlooking stunning views of the bay. The Nautical throwback theme of this wedding made you feel as if you were stepping back in time. The blue and white theme with the stunning pop of yellow color from the sunflowers gave a refreshing feeling to the nautical them and all in attendance. I love that the cake table gave honor to all the family members present and passed on. What a wonderful way to pay respect to those no longer with us. From the Balboa Bar table to the rustic downtown photos and sea lion guests in attendance this was a wedding we will never forget. Congratulations to AJ and Kelly. We were honored to help with your special day. May you ride the waves of happiness into eternity.   AJ+K_1441AJ+K_1538AJ+K_1252AJ+K_1253AJ+K_1778AJ+K_1237AJ+K_1236AJ+K_1240AJ+K_1245AJ K_2332AJ+K_1262AJ+K_1448AJ+K_1286AJ+K_1518The Vendor Team: Wedding Coordination: The Charming Little Event Co. charmingevent.com Venue: Harborside Newport Beach harborside-pavillion.com Photographer: GPT Photography gptphotograhy.blogspot.com DJ: Ovation Entertainment ovationcelebrations.com Florist: Merci Bouquet mercibouquet.com Paper Goods: Li’K Designs li-kdesigns.com

Amy & Brian – Bowers Museum in Santa Ana

Happy Sunday everyone!  Yesterday marked our first wedding of 2015 and we were so excited to help coordinate for our amazing and sweet couple.  Today though I want to share one of the most beautiful 2014 weddings we have seen and helped put together at Bowers Museum!  Amy and Brian’s wedding was simple yet elegant and so pretty with shades of blush pink, ivory, white and greens to compliment the Museum’s lush garden grounds.  I am so glad to have had the chance to help Amy & Brian with their summer wedding last year and I wish you both the very best!

Liz & Wanis, Orange Hill Restaurant

So excited to share pictures with you from Liz & Wanis’ wedding at the beautiful Orange Hill Restaurant.  I loved working with Hoffmann Photographer again, and the other great vendors that made this event come together so flawlessly.  The couple’s bold, black & red details were gorgeous along with the venue’s amazing view of the city and skyline.  My favorite was the tall, silver candelabras in the middle of the tables, adorned with pretty red roses and glowing candles – completely transformed the room.  I was thrilled to help Liz’s mom with the day’s details, and “work” with such a fun and loving family.

Congratulations Liz & Wanis!
