Charlene & Kyle: A Green Wedding in Pasadena, CA

Kyle Gladden admits he’s a big-picture type of guy -- his philosophy on wedding planning was to “get a place, buy some flowers, get some drinks, and throw a party!” Fortunately, his fiance Charlene Ariansen is more detail-oriented. A graphic designer, Char chose, with Kyle’s help, the most beautiful setting she could find, developed a theme that included various shades of green (her favorite color), and then designed the invitation in vibrant hues.
