An Honored Occassion

As an event designer, we work closely with other Industry vendors like photographers, videographers, venues, DJ/Lighting companies and most intimately Event Planners or Coordinators.

When asked to do the wedding of a very successful Los Angeles based Wedding Planner, we were shocked and very honored. To work together to create a wedding for a coordinator who has impeccable taste, endless resources and a plethora of amazing ideas was extremely exciting for our team here at Shawna Yamamoto Event Design.

We've worked closely with Sonia on several weddings in the past so we both had a good understanding of what each of our styles were and I had a pretty good idea as to what she loved & loathed!

We had so much fun working this wedding. Sonia let me do some free-style designs including succulent, moss high heal shoes & a flowergirl "basket" made of a vintage birdcage and a real yellow bird...

We will treasure this day for years to come. We are excited to see how the amazing and talented Andrena Photography captured this day! I personally attended this party as well and I was able to experience the talented Ajay at Special Occassions Sound kept the crowd rock'n...Seriously, we didn't leave the dancefloor ALL NIGHT! He really knows how to keep the crowd alive! Oh, and after a day in the rain setting up, it was a miracle that Jeannie Jeffries of Couture Beauty Team was on-hand to do my hair and make-up to make me look as if I hadn't worked a day in my life!

For all the other special amazing details, we will leave for a future post when we have more images to share. In the meantime, we wanted to send a warm "thank you" to Sonia & Philipp and all rest of the vendors that helped make this day simply amazing!

Look how stunning our bride was!
