A Colorful August White Wedding

"The best marriages that I do know that work - appear like a perfect dance. And for the dance to look like a dance, the couple has to work together.

The man leads. The woman follows, until we do not know who is leading or who is following. From the outside we see a beautiful dance that is in perfect harmony."

Christen and Antonio traveled from New York to Pasadena, California, and allowed us to design their perfect day. A day that reflected them which incorporated culture, travel, love, adventure and commitment. And family, their beautiful families. To do that, we chose Noor. Their fresh, romantic white themed Terrace wedding was accompanied by a vibrant, warm, sexy Sofia all dressed up in florals from Shawna Yamamoto and her team (thanks, Jeany!).

Mr. & Mrs. Keys have traveled the world together visiting Mexico, Costa Rica, Canada, Aruba, France, Monaco, Spain, Italy, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Thailand and the list continues. What better way to celebrate world travel than with performances from belly dancers from LA Belly Dance, Samba dancers with the Stephanie Stevenson Experience and even a performance from Christen's sorority sisters! All just before they start their new adventure as parents, with their son due in October.

Outside guests enjoyed a Cuban themed cigar patio complete with El Canito's hand rolled cigars and a flavorful Mojito bar to satisfy all the senses. I can't wait to share images with you from DAGphoto.com but for now, here's a gorgeous teaser from her talented photographer and a video that will leave you teary eyed and full of love today from Mario at Luv In Flying Colors showcasing all the fine details and the bond between this beautiful couple.


Christen wore part of her mother's gown. We displayed her mother in the original photo during cocktail hour.
