Desiring a venue that was local, outdoors, and filled with “natural beauty,” Rebecca and Evan settled upon a gorgeous Greystone Mansion in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood of Beverly Hills. “We needed to have luscious gardens and an intimate feel to complement our design and allow us to be super creative,” Rebecca shares of their vision, which she describes as having a “heavy emphasis on romance and a Regency-inspired style.”
The luxurious site provided the ideal setting for 150 friends and family members to gather for an alfresco garden ceremony and courtyard reception under the stars. Guests enjoyed delectable fare from a variety of food stations, decorated with vibrant blooms in autumnal tones along with fruits and vegetables, at the on-site reflection pond dotted with lily pads and the mansion’s immaculate terraces.
Loved ones were then led up to the formal gardens for the vow exchange, finding their seats atop wooden chairs with ivory cushions arranged on the well-manicured lawn. They faced a towering chuppah adorned with ample verdure and floral accents in punchy tones, which also lined the grassy aisle.
When it was time for dinner in the courtyard, attendees were seated at round tables strewn with velvet linens in light blue by Luxe Linen. Centerpieces showcased tall crystal candelabra emerging from a base of colorful garden roses, hellebores, and greenery from Mark’s Garden, as well as pomegranates, grapes, pears, persimmons, and apples, all illuminated with ambient candlelight.
Each guest’s place setting featured a gold-rimmed charger, etched glassware, and even an individual serving board displaying a variety of bread options from Culinary Creations by Chumie.
A sit-down dinner service was enjoyed by all, as was a selection of tasty desserts. The newlyweds and their loved ones spent the rest of the evening savoring the romantic feel of the evening and dancing the night away.
From their meaningful ceremony to the lively 90-minute hora, Evan and Rebecca affirm their wedding was a day to remember. The groom’s only regret is that he wishes he had “found Rebecca sooner,” he smiles.
