Ambar chose all-white florals for her Los Angeles River Center & Gardens wedding and reception to reflect her personal understated elegant and high-class style. Guests felt like they were entering a white floral wonderland as they entered the event!
Both Ambar and Mark opted to start their wedding day at the ultra-fabulous Intercontinental Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles for it’s great style and stunning views of the city. Hair and Makeup arrived early and started getting everyone ready for the big day!
Once her hair and makeup were complete, Ambar donned this GORGEOUS Martina Liana gown that looked stunning on her!
The ceremony was held at the iconic St Vincent De Paul Cathedral in Los Angeles, known for it’s ornate décor and stunning architecture. You could see the joy on their faces as they vowed to love and cherish one another for the rest of their lives!
After the ceremony, guests headed to the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens for cocktail hour. In the meantime, we photographed the happy newlyweds and their bridal party in front of the beautiful gates at the venue.
The reception began with Ambar and Mark’s romantic first dance on the rotunda. I love this spot for a first dance because it separates the couple from the audience a bit to give them space and makes for some great photos!
After dinner, Ambar and Mark made a quick outfit change while La Banda Consendita de Mazatlan arrived to entertain the crowd to some great live music. Their energy brought the party up to the next level. Mr Bee Bartender kept the drinks flowing while Mijo Entertainment traded off DJ-ing in between the Banda’s sets. It was an incredible night full of love and laughter!
