City Lights: A Downtown Chic Reception

2012 was a year of incredible events at Vibiana, and Anna & Limzer’s gorgeous city themed summer wedding on August 10th was no exception.

They say they’re both extroverts whose relationship was defined by moving, first apart then together again. Each spent 2008 in different cities, moved together in 2010, and moved again in 2012, back to Los Angeles – hence the wedding date 08/10/12.

We talked to Anna about her special day and some of her favorite wedding memories at Vibiana. She also shared with us some details about their relationship such as how they met, and where Limzer proposed:

“Limzer and I have crossed paths throughout our lives, he is my brother’s friend. He remembers meeting me in front of my mom’s house in 1998. I remember meeting at a holiday party in 2006.” After several years of dating and courtship, Limzer proposed to Anna on 11/11/11 at the Peninsula Hotel.

Anna reflected on the more memorable moments of her wedding day:

“[I remember] looking to the dance floor and seeing all our family and friends dancing and having fun…our photographer pulling us outside for a beautiful evening shot and having some alone time together…[our first dance] was a rhumba that turned into a cha cha to “Save the Last Dance…walking into [the] reception and seeing everyone enjoying themselves and officially being announced as Mr. and Mrs.”

To future brides, Anna says, “Enjoy the whole process. It can get stressful but remember it should be a fun process and at the end of the day it’s about the two of you.”

Thanks to Anna and Limzer, who handled their own plans and wedding day with grace, charm, and of course, love.

Their favorite vendors: Kelsey Events (coordinator); Evoke Photography (photographer); Parasol of Design (floral decorations); Kitchen 12000 (linens & rentals); Limzer Lagrimas (invitations, menus, graphic designs).

Hilarity for Charity 2012

After being actively involved in the Alzheimer’s community for the past several years, Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller (along with some amazing friends) created Hilarity for Charity: an awesome, one-of-a-kind, and most importantly, hilarious event to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s among a younger generation.

Seth and Lauren established the Hilarity for Charity Fund as part of the National Alzheimer’s Association, through which monies raised will be directed to help families struggling with Alzheimer’s care, increase support groups nationwide, and fund cutting edge research.

The first Hilarity for Charity event was held in January 2012 at Vibiana, treating the audience to an amazing show hosted by Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, David Krumholtz, and Ty Burrell. Performances by Bruno Mars, Tenacious D, Patton Oswalt, Aziz Ansari, Judd Apatow, Pauly D, and more made the event a huge success. Not only was over $300,000 raised, but Alzheimer’s Disease was brought to the forefront of a group who don’t normally think about it.
