I met Brit Friedman at a Bridal Show in Santa Monica. She came with the intention of hiring a wedding coordinator and found me. She said it was perfect as I knew her beautiful venue Cicada, a stunning 1920’s location in downtown. I have celebrated many events there and knew owners and managers well. I was looking forward to doing a wedding there.
Brit put her heart and soul into planning her wedding. She folded 1000 origami cranes to hang from the balconies and also place on the tables. This symbolizes 1000 years good luck. Her colors were orange and grey which fit well with the art deco design of the venue. Her family are big chocolate lovers so plates of Sees Candy would be placed on every table as well as chocolate covered strawberries as favors. The art deco style was everywhere from the gorgeous sign in print especially customized for them, the dress, the florals, the invitation, and the cake.
