Theresa wanted lots of color and requested no shades of white or gold in the bouquet. She and her girls carried purple bouquets of roses, orchids, and tulips.

The girls wore floor-length, A-line, ruched dresses with black satin ribbons around their waists. In keeping with the idea of having many shades of purple, Theresa’s two maids of honors wore eggplant and her two bridesmaids wore lilac.

Theresa and Ken chose a stationery studio that subsidizes 75 percent of their electric power from solar panels. They softened the dark-purple border with a light, pretty illustration of flowers, butterflies, and a bird.

Theresa and Ken wanted an urban reception space, and SmogShoppe, with its brick walls, provided just that. To lighten up the dark linens and lilac suede chairs, airy paper lanterns hung from the ceiling. And for a personal touch (and a few laughs), Theresa’s favorite episodes of I Love Lucy were projected on one wall during dinner.

Theresa and Ken printed guests’ names on rectangular cardstock. They applied Swarovski crystals to each card to indicate guests’ entree choice. For the display, Ken built four wooden boxes and stained them ebony. Inside, he set down pieces of green bamboo as a bed to hold the escort cards upright.

Like they did for most of the wedding décor, Theresa and Ken chose flowers in different shades of purple for the centerpieces, including tulips, hydrangeas, and roses. They were arranged in glass vases of varying shapes and textures.

For a feminine look, Theresa and Ken incorporated butterflies into their wedding motif. Purple and white ones, handmade of sugar, cascaded down their smooth, buttercream cake.

Theresa & Ken in Culver City, CA

Theresa and Ken grew up together and were always close friends. When Ken left for college, a part of Theresa felt empty; soon she found out Ken felt the same way, and they started dating. The Bride Theresa Telebrico, 28, a registered nurse The Groom Ken Nuarin, 28, a web programmer The Date August 8 Eight years later, Theresa and Ken took a weekend getaway to Desert Springs. After they checked in, they went off to explore the resort and by dusk, they wound up sitting on a bench near one of the private lakes. That’s when Ken pulled a ring out of his pocket and completely surprised Theresa by asking her to marry him.
