Winter Solstice Celebration

Today is officially the first day of Winter! To celebrate the Solstice and get everyone into the holiday spirit we thought we would share a few of our favorite photos from our shoot with Serendipity magazine last year for their winter issue. We loved their whimsical variation on the “Alice in Wonderland” theme as well as their creative wintry table top designs—one of them included cotton candy from our friends at Tasty Clouds! See below for your dose of winter inspiration.

For more great wedding inspiration, check out Serendipity Magazine online and available now at your local bookstore/newsstands.

Traditional Beefsteak Dinner at Vibiana

What better place to revive a decades-old tradition than at historic Vibiana? On December 8, we were proud to host Chef Neal Fraser and friends’ Beefsteak 2011. It was a night of food, drink, and old-timey fun to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Pulitzer Prize-winner Jonathan Gold was there to join in the festivities and wrote about it in the most recent issue of LA Weekly.
