MODERN CLASSIC MEETS CALIFORNIA COOL AT SERENA & JASON’S LOS ANGELES AFFAIR

So-Cal couple Serena and Jason brought a breath of fresh California air to their traditional wedding in Los Angeles.

A true LA lady, Serena evoked the loveliness of a modern Princess Grace in her traditional A-line wedding dress—so beautiful. Maintaining ladylike modesty, the sweetheart strapless neckline was wrapped in an off-the-shoulder cloud of sheer chiffon, allowing just a peek of skin through the illusion fabric. A soft, upswept chignon completed her classic look.The bridesmaids looked just as regal in their powder blue halter gowns complete with a chunky beaded necklace. And naturally, the guys played it dapper in old Hollywood dapper in black tuxes.

The art deco vibe of the Hills Hotel offered a swank backdrop for bridal party portraits, and of course, their stunning first look—a key wedding photography moment. After snapping some memorable shots, they headed to their wedding ceremony. Serena and Jason exchanged vows in a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Kilian Catholic Church. One modern touch—a chalkboard sign that invited guests to sit where they wished.

After these two said I do, it was time to celebrate at their reception, hosted at the scenic Dove Canyon Country Club. Their Los Angeles wedding photographer whisked the newlyweds outside for some fun portraits under the California sun. They looked totally at ease strolling the lush grounds with rolling hills, rocky waterfalls and towering redwoods bringing every frame to life. Jason literally swept Serena off her feet. And Serena looked especially stunning against the blooming scenery in a series of beautiful bridal portraits.

Before dancing the night away, they cut into their classic three-tier white wedding cake adorned with a silhouetted cake topper and intricate piping. Such a sweet ending to stunning evening.
