A Classic, Garden-Inspired Wedding at Vibiana in Los Angeles, California
Vibiana in Los Angeles, California, is the former cathedral church built over 100 years ago and filled with Italian architecture and rich history that Lisa Carrillo (29 and a lawyer) and Esteban Rodriguez (31 and a lawyer) used for their classic wedding. They decorated the elegant Grand Hall with lush, green plants and garlands to create a garden feel, combined with soft hues of blush, cream, burgundy, blue and splashes of gold. A wreath logo wrapped around Lisa and Esteban's initials accented the white invitations, menu cards, programs, and table numbers. Long garlands with burgundy and pink flowers lined the aisle leading to the altar, where an abundant amount of candles and flower arrangements surrounded Lisa and Esteban. Dark wood dining tables replaced the rows of chiavari chairs for the reception, and guests found their escort cards marked with calligraphy and wax seals. The dessert display embodied the day's garden vibe, with cakes and sweets positioned on top of a green painted table with overflowing plants at the bottom. The romantic pink and white bridal bouquet really stole our hearts, and the gold heart-shaped charm attached to the wrap really made us melt. "I placed a heart-shaped locket with a picture of my late grandfather on my bouquet wrapping," Lisa says. "Although he was not there on our wedding day, I wanted to make sure to include him on my walk down the aisle."
