Athenaeum Wedding

With so many strapless wedding dress options, it is nice to see a Bride choose to wear straps.  This Amsale gown had a fun lattice tulle skirt, dramatic embellished flowers at the waistline and a plunging back.  Anne looked absolutely gorgeous and it suited her perfectly for an outdoor wedding in California.Athenaeum Wedding - Ang Weddings and Events - Next Exit Photography-1

The colour palette for this summer wedding in Pasadena was green and white; always refreshing and light.

The reception took place at The Athenaeum with its Mediterranean style architecture and timeless feel.   The gardens provided so many pretty backdrops for their portraits.

Wedding favours were little pots of tea labelled "Love is Brewing".  In lieu of a guestbook, mad libs were provided for guests to have fun filling in the blanks.

I loved how the paper lanterns and lights twinkled above as the guests danced the night away.  It was a day full of happiness and laughter.  Just as a wedding should be.
