Using Jessica and Ilya's grand vision to combine their backgrounds and religion together in a romantic away, Alchemy Fine Events took their wedding to the next level with old Hollywood glamour.
A colorful invitation suite set the tone for the Big Day, and featured Persian and Spanish influences along with art nouveau. The couple exchanged vows with a traditional Jewish ceremony at the Bel Air Bay Club, in front of a breathtaking, pink and orange bougainvillea chuppah, overlooking the stunning Pacific Ocean. Jessica was a glowing bride in a sweetheart fit and flare gown from Lea Ann Belter Bridal. Bridesmaids wore Amsale in different shades of blue (contrasted by beautiful pink bouquets), complemented by the groomsmen's bow ties and pocket squares, pink boutonnieres and custom printed yarmulkes.
A beautiful champagne tower and macarons, along with a Persian feast were served during cocktail hour, and guests enjoyed live music outdoors before heading in to the impeccably decorated reception room. Hand-painted tiles served as place cards and take home gifts. Krista Jon created fabulous exotic centerpieces on mirrored boxes and vintage sets. Patterned linens were topped with an array of crystal, mercury glassware, jewel-tones and touches of gold on guest tables. And if their four-tier white wedding cake with fresh blooms wasn't sweet enough, guests were surprised with late-night ice cream sandwiches before the sparkler send-off. The glamorous evening was captured by Luna Photo.
