About the venue
This is Beverly Hills like you have never seen it before and might never see it again. It takes a pretty crafty bride to take a standard run-of-the-mill park (even if it is in Beverly Hills) and turn it into a luxurious ‘woodsie’ setting. I half expect to see Tinkerbell and her band of pixi’s flying about!
The glorious color combination of purple haze and bitter fig paired flawlessly with sour lime and green lemon is sensational. The creative use of natural wood and moss has created a virtual “playground” of texture and gives this celebration a bit of an old world feel; however, the bright vivid colors definitely have you feeling a bit playful and whimsical at the same time.
The natural wooded setting in the park is filled with all sorts of natural tones of brown, sand, stone, and slate – the colors brighten up the area by being playful, but they do not go so far outside the elements found in nature that they overpower things. The fun and playful elements such as the “purple Jordan almonds,” the purple chairs, and the sweetheart table covered in moss are genius.
We were fortunate enough to have the very talented Robert Paetz share this colorful celebration with us and I’m sure he can attest to the fact that a good time was had by all.
Franklin Canyon Park provided a beautifully lush background for pictures, with lots of interesting nooks and a picturesque reservoir. The handmade details and impeccable attention to everything made this an outstanding wedding. Christine’s creativity, resourcefulness and enthusiasm shone through as her ‘enchanted woodland’ themed wedding was brought to life in the lush green surroundings of Franklin Canyon Park in Beverly Hills. Christine & Scott proved that by tapping your contacts and with some savvy budgeting, a picture-perfect wedding is possible without busting the bank! ~ Robert Paetz
