Boho Los Angeles Nuptials

April 27, 2022

After getting ready at a nearby hotel, Jayson and his groomsmen and Mary and her bridesmaids arrived at Forme for the big reveal. Jayson stood with his back facing the Sunburst Suite where Mary awaited her cue. With a signal from her planner, Mary stepped into the open-air loft, walked over to Jayson, and tapped him on the shoulder. A huge smile filled his face as he turned around to see his bride and the two shared a warm embrace as their bridal party cheered in the background. The group then headed downstairs to pose for pictures before guests arrived. Each bridesmaid was dressed in a different style and different color dress with boho-inspired bouquet while the groomsmen wore charcoal suits with matching boutonnieres. Memories were made together, then everyone lined up for ceremony.

Guests entered the courtyard, signed Jayson and Mary’s guest book, then headed inside to take a seat. A wooden backdrop draped with white fabric and decorated in pampas and light pink roses stood at the head of the aisle. Once everyone had arrived, the wedding party made their entrances ending with the bride. In front of their closest friends and family, Jayson and Mary recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.

Guests headed back outside for cocktail hour where the bar was pouring the newlywed’s signature drinks, a Hawaiian Mule and Old Fashioned. Tray passed Lemon Parmesan Artichoke Hearts and Fig, Goat Cheese and Mascarpone Tarts made their rounds while everyone mixed and mingled. Jayson and Mary wandered around the venue for golden hour photos, then returned to their guests to finish out cocktail hour together.

A seating chart led guests inside for reception where tables were draped in ivory linen and topped with boho floral centerpieces. When everyone had taken a seat, the bride and groom made their grand entrance into their first dance, then took a seat at the sweetheart table. Friends and family made toasts and champagne glasses clinked in the air concluding each speech. Dinner was next and a buffet of Grilled Greek Chicken Kabobs, Kofta Kabobs, Basmati Rice, Greek Salad and Hummus with Pita Bread was unveiled. Jayson and Mary made their rounds for thank yous as guests finished dinner, then the bride and groom cut into their 2-tier lemon cake for dessert. The newlyweds invited guests to indulge in something sweet, hit the dance floor, and pose in front of the photo booth before heading home and thanked everyone once again for celebrating their love story.
