Adik and Sayeh met over seven years ago while vacationing in Cancun, Mexico. As fate would have it, they were staying at the same hotel. Sayeh recalls, that they spent the whole trip talking, and getting to know each other. “At one point he told me we were going to end up together. Little did I know back then, he was right.” Sayeh hired Jana Williams to capture their romance on their wedding day. She wanted timeless elegant photos that portrayed their love and someone to not miss any details of their wedding celebration at the Casa Del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica. They loved the color scheme of the ballroom but found out that both the ceremony and reception were typically inside. She wanted her ceremony outside so she had a white platform and aisle constructed over the sand directly on the beach. And this allowed her to still wear her gorgeous Badgley Mischka heels. The weather was perfect, not a cloud in the sky. Guests enjoyed the sunset on the terrace and danced all night on a high gloss seamless white dance floor. The room was softly light while tall blush pink and cream floral centerpieces stood tall and grand. Mirror tops gave each centerpiece and candle an extra special glow. Their stunning 6-tier wedding cake was layered with sugar flowers, detailed fondant, gold filigree and filled with mocha ganache cake!
Sayeh advise Brides: “Planning a wedding is hard and takes a lot of work, so when the day comes ENJOY IT, because it will be over in a flash! Sometimes, mistakes will happen and things won’t go as planned. Try not to focus on these things because you’ll miss out on all the love and beauty around you. Also, try to get away after the wedding. Even if you can’t go on a big honeymoon, try to escape for a couple of days together just to be alone and enjoy each other’s company.”
