A Romantic, Glamorous Wedding at The London West Hollywood in Los Angeles, California
Jocelyne Woodhouse and Nick Woodhouse planned an intimate, glamorous affair with a color palette of blush, ivory and gold and, of course, plenty of glitz. While the couple calls New York home, they decided to head to sunny California for their early September affair. “We both love the California lifestyle and thought Los Angeles would be central for all of our Canadian and American friends and family,” says Jocelyne. When it came to choosing a venue, the private rooftop of The London West Hollywood seemed like the perfect spot with its panoramic views of Beverly Hills and beyond.
The hotel’s Hampton Court, an elegantly manicured English-style rose garden, played host to the ceremony. Rose petals ranging from pale pink to ivory guided Jocelyne as she made her way down the aisle in her striking Pnina Tornai gown towards the ethereal wedding arch where Nick stood waiting. After exchanging vows, the newlyweds ands their guests enjoyed cocktail hour by the pool, followed by dinner and dancing under a romantic, open-air tent. Guests were seated around long tables to heighten the evening’s intimate feel, with textured pink linens, sparkling crystal chandeliers and plenty of warm candle light establishing an air of romantic ambiance. Gilded accents and chiavari change played a key role in bringing about a hint of luxe, old Hollywood glamour, while lavish arrangements of cascading orchids, peonies and roses displayed atop glass hurricane vases struck just the right balance of modern, feminine elegance. “We made sure to incorporate special signature tequila cocktails — our favorite — and we love to dance, so we had a great DJ who spun all night,” says Jocelyne.
