This classic neutral tone wedding stole our hearts with touches of gold and vibrant entertainment captured by the amazing Duke Photography. Stori and Moe's story began as a long distance romance that turned into a happily ever after. Wedding planner Allure Events Atelier was at the helm of designing this tranquil ambience by using gold, white and blush tones.
San Francisco Dreams
The bride and room met on New Year's Eve 2010 through an introduction of mutual friends. The groom lived in Southern California at the time and had a close friend who was dating a girl from the Bay area. Being overly encouraged to meet and after many messages back and forth, Stori and Moe chose San Francisco as their first date and their journey began.
On Bended Knee
Moe proposed to Stori the night of her birthday at Scott's Restaurant. A dinner party had already been arranged with close friends and family. As the waiter presented Stori with a specially made dinner menu, Moe revealed himself from behind the waiter professing his love for her. On bended knee he proposed to the girl of his dreams in front of many flashing cameras.
Bridal Style in Lazaro
Setting her heart on a Lazaro gown, Stori looked radiant. She polished her look with Jimmy Choo. What we love most of all is that she personally designed her bridesmaids dresses. Each in a bright hue creating a fusion of color and vibrancy.
Stori and Moe opted to marry at the Richard Nixon Library and Museum located in Yorba Linda, California. They wanted a tranquil ambience with a clean and classy feel. Gold, white and blush were chosen for their color palette and wedding planner Flavia Lamogila from Allure Events Atelier helped bring their vision to reality. Stori raved about Flavia's patience not only with her and her groom, but also with the exceptional respect and collaboration she shared with additional vendors on hand. The hall was a masterpiece of design with a definite wow factor. Butterfly Floral and Event Design filled the room with robust blooms in various neutral tones and Rafi's Pastry went above and beyond expectations with a fabulous cake design. The couple was able to secure a famous singer in the Afghan community by the name of Habib Qaderi who delighted the guests with the evening's energetic and vibrant entertainment. The overall décor of the ceremony and reception were standout moments for Stori and Moe due to the jaw dropping beauty and the enthusiasm their guests showed.
Duke Photography captured each special moment and delicate detail of the day. We love the timeless memories they created for these newlyweds.
