A Wedding At The London Hotel In Hollywood

The London Hotel In Hollywood

Do remember awhile back when post that spectacular wedding that Paul Von Rieter shared with us? Well Paul is back and he has yet another hot one for you!

Christie and Joe Marchese were married in the typical Hollywood fashion at the London Hotel in Hollywood. They used the same coordinator that did Eddie Murphy’s latest wedding, Brent Miller. Brent is apparently the right hand man to Colin Cowie. Ohh and did I mention that the dinner was catered by Gordon Ramsey. Yep, it was a super delicious event!

Joe is the president of, which is an incredibly awesome web site. It is this amazing company that basically gets advertisers to give most of their advertising money to charity, by enabling people to choose what products they wish to support. It is a really cool thing. Go and visit by clicking here.

How cute is the cutlery?

Super easy to do but has that extra special cuteness factor to it.
Simply take your napkin and cutlery wrap them in a vintage book page and roll the napkin and tie a piece of twine around the napkin. Easy Peasy!

I also want to mention that last week Blue Green Arts left a comment and I visited her Etsy store. She just happens to sell Vintage Paper Supplies, Vintage Book Pages. Perfect!

Wedding Stylists Do Not Forget

1950s wedding ideas

Last week we shared with you that we are holding a little contest for wedding coordinators and wedding stylists. We just wanted to make sure that all your ideas and style boards are in by this Friday, February 26, 2010. Read here for more details on the contest.

Above is just a little example of wedding inspiration from a past time. A few details for a 1950’s wedding. A bit quirky, a bit cute and a whole lot of fun. There are so many different elements that you can use to make your vintage dream come alive. A Classic 50’s style wedding dress, a bird cage veil. Possibly a ruffled shirt for your honey. I adore the idea of having vintage Coca Cola bottles for guests to enjoy. Who does not love an ice cold Coca Cola?
