A Vibiana Wedding

The unique Vibiana was the setting recently for the wedding of Ashley and Evan.
Built in 1876, this beautiful event space was once a functioning Catholic cathedral. Saved from demolition in 1996, desanctified and given an $8million facelift it is the perfect place for a wedding......you get to briefly feel as though you're in Europe when you're downton LA!
The bride wore a beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown and very-customised, shocking pink Christian Louboutin shoes! The groom's tie was made from a piece of his bride's dress which was a lovely romantic gesture.
Ashley and Evan's special day was visually stunning thanks to BrownHot Events. The black and white theme was very glamorous....the cocktail reception in the lush garden featured a white leather bar, a black grand piano, crystal chandeliers hanging from the trees and huge black and white paper roses.
Inside, the ostrich-feather chuppah assumed it's evening duty as the dj " box". Chairs were feathered, ruffled and even draped with rhinestone "necklaces".....some table linens were even sequined!
A martini ice-luge, a leather and velvet lounge area and doughnuts while waiting for the valet were extra special touches.
For those who would like to see the complete day here is Ashley and Evan's slideshow:
