Pretty in Pink Vintage Hollywood Fiesta Wedding

Stepping into the Palm Court at the Alexandria Ballroom you feel instantly transported to another time and place. Immersed in Hollywood history and celebrity romance, the Alexandria Ballroom was the idyllic location for this Pretty in Pink Vintage Hollywood Fiesta.

Before I show you this stunning reception, I must show you some beautiful photos of Jessica, Joel, and their bridal party before they officially became #themascorros...

This dress was perfect for my bride, Jessica...soft, delicate, lacey, and pearl encrusted.

Constructed in 1906, the Alexandria hosted some of Hollywood’s elite including Jack Dempsey, Mary Miles Minter, Rudolph Valentino, & Charlie Chaplin as well as notable, now historic, figures such as Ronald Reagan, Winston Churchill, King Edward VIII, Woodrow Wilson, & Theodore Roosevelt.  Since the grand renovation stars like Natalie Portman, Pharrell & Beyonce have hosted events here as well.

The Palm Court Ballroom, where Jessica & Joel chose to host their wedding reception is designated as an historical-cultural monument. Many of the original details are still intact and are absolutely exquisite. Upon entering the room guests cannot help but look upward at the gorgeous and grand stained-glass Tiffany skylights.  In October 1911, the Los Angeles Times reported about the ballroom’s grand opening, 

“The great room, over one hundred feet in length and seventy-five feet in width, was a sunburst of light. Great crystal chandeliers blazed from a dozen vantage points, while softer and smaller lights were placed along the four sides of the room. ... The perfection and symphony of the great room held the guests spellbound upon their arrival. As the stately ladies and gentlemen entered the salon the pause each made at the threshold as with intense interest they swept the salon with their gaze was noticeable.”

This is an impressive and gorgeous room!

The built-in bar in the Palm Court Ballroom is very well known and quite an attraction. Jessica & Joel wanted to highlight this unique area with custom cocktails and tequila shooters created for the occasion. Guests were able to take home the shot glasses to remember the evening.

The Money Dance is a tradition in some Latin cultures and one of the things Jessica & Joel had a lot of fun with. Guests "pay" for a dance by pinning a bill on the bride or groom. It looks like this guest might be paying to cut in!
