Chrystine & Michael's Wedding at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Chrystine and Michael are hands down one of our favorite clients to work with! Such a laid back couple who are both die hard Lakers fan (I knew we would get along just fine!).  The two go way back, Michael being best friends with Chrystine's older brother.  Her brother unexpectedly and tragically passed away in 2007, which brought Chrystine and Michael closer together as they supported each other.  The years went by and as they became closer, the time came in 2009 when Michael proposed to Chrystine at the top of the Tokyo Tower in Japan while on vacation.

The couple wanted to keep the ceremony simple and clean, really using the Skirball's beautiful and natural backdrop to speak for itself.  For the reception, Chrystine and Michael wanted a very colorful and dramatic appearance which was achieved through dark blue and purple wash lights and uplight and also a custom gobo that was lit onto the glossy white dance floor.  To create a fun and party-like environment, lounge furniture was added along with an awesome casino with full-sized blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

Adorable details such as the Lakers garter, Chrystine's shiba inu Tsuki, the fabulous paper origami bouquets, the custom Kobe Byrant sneakers, and the GORGEOUS wedding dress, all added beautiful detail and color to this beautiful wedding.  And did we mention the wedding cake was made to mimic the Tokyo Tower where they got engaged?
