REAL WEDDING: Harry Potter Wedding at the Hollywood Castle

We solemnly swear we are up to no good with this absolutely stunning Harry Potter-inspired wedding. Guests showed up donning their favorite house attire (and even some death eaters in the mix), sipped on potions during cocktail hour, and had chocolate frogs as favors at each place setting. Cindy and Matt showcased their love for the wizarding world while being ultra fashionable and providing an epic guest experience.

Sometimes the magic just fits – Photographer Nirav Patel matched the vibe of the wedding seamlessly and captured these magical images of the day:

You may have seen them over on Martha Stewart Weddings, BuzzFeed, or Huffington Post. If not, maybe Pop Sugar or Refinery 29 caught your fancy!

 

Kudos to this epic crew of vendors for all the magic:

California Love: The Golden State of Mind

We have had the exceptional honor year after year to create and submit a food-centric spread to our friends at Ceremony Magazine. This year’s submission was inspired by California Love, with both design and menus inspired by local California produce. With statement pieces from Found and stunning florals from The Bloom of Time, our favorite part of the shoot was the “edible arrangements,” made up of edible produce of vibrant fruits and vegetables, accented with fresh florals. We are delighted at our spread in Ceremony Magazine, and love this expression of  our Golden State of Mind. Enjoy!
