Real Wedding: Candy & Josh

Everyone knows I love a good challenge. So during our first meeting, when Josh and Candy uttered the statement "if you can handle this wedding, you can handle anything", I instantly took them up on the challenge. They were planning an intimate (75 guests), yet over the top affair (Beverly Hills ceremony, city tour of LA, Pasadena reception) that was sure to be on everyone's lips for years to come.

Then came another revelation: this would be a vegan wedding...and the couple was on a mission (check out the story of how it all began here).

Check out these photos of the couple's special day, courtesy of Toki Cavener Photography:

The DIY couple hand-made these pretty pomanders...


Simple, yet elegant ceremony decor...
There wasn't a dry eye in the place as the handsome couple made their way down the aisle...


Immediately after the ceremony, guests were whisked away to a private area to enjoy food and refreshments...

And to enjoy the smooth melodic jazz duo Beauty & the Bass

The reception was a red-carpet affair...

Guests enjoyed their moments of "fame" as they were photographed on the red carpet...


Inside, guests were treated to a delicious spread of appetizers...

Josh and Candy were all smiles as they made their grand entrance...

An AMAZING 6-course vegan meal...absolutely delicious!

And yummy vegan cupcakes! (Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of the vegan cheesecake provided by the bride's Vegan dessert company Earth Cafe)

One of the highlights of the evening: Bellydancers!



The super-talented bride even performed a routine with them!

The reception decor was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!


The 6ft Manzanita tree centerpieces were a hit!


The sweetheart table...

As the reception came to an end, guests were presented with their red-carpet photo as a keepsake favor.


I was very grateful to be a part of such a fabulous event and was extremely proud of how things came together. Thanks Candy & Josh for letting PTE give your wedding a "platinum touch".
