Ok full confession: this wedding happened a couple of years ago BUT it’s still one of my favorites because it was small, intimate and full of natural beauty. Merari and Fernando chose to have their ceremony at TreePeople Park in the Santa Monica Mountains which overlooked all of Los Angeles. It was stunning and just full of wildlife! The cocktail hour and reception were held in the coolest private room at Cecconi’s West Hollywood. Take a look at this beautiful and intimate Los Angeles wedding:
The bride got ready at her beautiful bright apartment in Marina Del Rey, CA. Her dress was actually a 2-piece short dress + skirt combo which I am obsessed with!
The First Look with a view
The First Look was done at TreePeople Park with an absolutely gorgeous view. Did you know that TreePeople Park is first and foremost a non profit that bring the LA community together to plant trees, renew landscapes and harvest rain water?
The Ceremony on top of TreePeople Park
Since the trails don’t have a ton of room for wedding rentals, we opted for a few benches and a small arch with simple florals. Merari’s father walked her down the path, around the corner and down the aisle.
Romantic photos at sunset
We can’t resist a good sunset on top of a mountain. TreePeople Park has a million places you could take photos. Their photographer, Chloe, found the perfect spots to capture both the view and sunset during their romantic photos.
Eclectic Reception in West Hollywood
After those sunset photos the small group of 25 headed to Cecconi’s in West Hollywood for some cocktails, appetizers and a delicious dinner in a fun and eclectic room!
