Michelle and Al’s White Wedding

Our Mon Amie Event Planning team loves monochromatic weddings! Designing in one color increases the focus on texture, details, and guest experience. Without a doubt, Michelle and Al’s unique white wedding was spectacular.

Creating an incredible wedding at the couple’s home last year allowed our team a lot of latitude. We were able to utilize the entire property. The load-in and construction were flexible, and we took incredible safety precautions. With a very short planning window, it made all the difference.

Initially, the couple’s vision was to host everything in the backyard with fantastic waterfront views. But, we worked with them to utilize the entire property. We showcased the unique features of the front of the house for dinner, transitioning to the backyard for a spectacular evening.

I See The Light

The day began early for the couple and their wedding parties to be ready for an intimate late morning wedding ceremony.

The intimate wedding ceremony was hosted on the property’s waterfront. A clear acrylic ceremony structure overflowed with a cascade of beautiful white Phalaenopsis orchids – a design element that carried through the entire day.

The family gathered to the sounds of Disney love songs, followed by the wedding party processional to “Once Upon A Dream” from Sleeping Beauty.

With Al and their wedding party in place, Michelle made her entrance to “I See The Light” from Disney’s Tangled. Wearing a one-of-a-kind wedding gown, the bride carried a magnificent cascading bouquet.

Following a reading from Les Miserables, the couple exchanged their wedding vows, rings and signing their Marriage License to “So This Is Love” from Cinderella.

Appropriately enough, the couple made their exit to “When You Wish Upon A Star” from Pinocchio, having a beverage, a few photos, and heading off for a private family lunch at the Hotel Carmichael.

Dining en Plein Air

That evening, the newlyweds, family, and friends gathered in front of the couple’s home for a stupendous dinner reception.

The drive was filled with an eclectic mix of tables draped in crisp white linens, some under flowing white fabric with crystal chandeliers. Modern glass charger plates, candles, and white floral centerpieces filled the tables. Clear acrylic reception chairs and décor were branded with a modern geometric pattern that continued throughout the décor.

The focal point of the reception was a feasting table positioned under the home’s porte cochère. The long mirrored table reflected the lush canopy of orchids floating above the table.

Before being treated to an incredible multi-station dining experience, wedding guests arrived at a towering modern glass seating chart. From individual, monogrammed Raw Bar Boxes to Carving Stations, there were tasty treats for every palate.

And every fairytale wedding needs a Signature Cocktail. In this case, “The Prince Roman,” named for the couple’s adorable fur baby, included Vodka, White Chocolate, Godiva Liqueur, Dar Crème de Cacao, Frangelico and Chocolate Syrup.

Dancing Under The Stars

Following the lavish dinner, the couple and their guests moved to the backyard for sunset, dessert, dancing, and entertainment.

As the sun began to set, guests arrived in the backyard, Champagne in hand, to a magnificent outdoor cocktail party. The pool area and sloping hills were filled with incredible lounge furniture, multiple bars, and a spectacular clear tent with a crystal chandelier and oversized white dance floor.

Dessert, Dancing, and A Few Surprises!

After sunset, Michelle and Al gathered with their wedding guests for their cake cutting and kick off the evening’s entertainment. 

To the side of the incredible tent, the couple cut their fabulous four-tiered wedding cake that floated above a marble table, surrounded by miniature cakes.

With everyone gathered, it was time for the evening’s entertainment and a surprise guest. The incomparable Lindsey Stirling! 

Lindsey is an incredible performer known for her choreographed violin performances and appearance on the 2010 season of America’s Got Talent.
