Real Wedding : red, gold and brown elegance with a few surprises

Today's Real Wedding is pure gorgeousness {is that really a word?}. The wedding of Stacy and Jason was photographed by Next Exit Photography with the ceremony taking place in The Tuscan Garden of the Westlake Village Inn. Stacy wanted to have an outdoor ceremony in a beautiful setting that didn't require a lot of extra décor. The ceremony colors were reds, golds and browns - such an elegant combination. The bride explains, "The brown swirled wrought iron gazebo was magnificent on its own, but looked even more spectacular with 2 urns overflowing with red roses, red calla lilys & amaranthus in front of it."

The gorgeous custom made personalized aisle runner {from Cherin of Customized Wedding Creations} brought everything together and gave the bride and groom their first surprise of the day as they didn’t know it was being made for them.

The two level ballroom sparkled with the crystal chandeliers and sconces hanging around the room. The reception was in ivory and gold with the centerpieces being in footed vases with gold containers inside them for the extra sparkle. They included various ivory flowers cascading with roses, hydrangeas and more.

As the evening darkened the ballroom was aglow with over 100 votives in gold mercury containers. And, another surpise for the bride and groom as a custom personalized Gobo on the wall with their names. The cake was made specifically to the groom's request with each layer being 10" tall.

I have to thank Cherin of Customized Wedding Creations for sending me this wedding and to Next Exit Photography for sharing the photos with my readers today. To see more from Next Exit Photography, please visit their web site and blog.
