From the Bride:
We’d already known each other for a few years at UCLA, but started getting closer when we discovered our mutual love for food. Fast forward to spring of 2011 at Griffith Observatory when Will first told Tiffany that he liked her…who knew that five years later he would be asking her to marry him at the same location! We had quite a long engagement period, but we finally got married in our lucky seventh year together at Greystone Mansion.
We found Greystone Mansion by pure chance one day while in the area…it was love at first sight and we immediately knew we wanted to get married here. Not only were the grounds gorgeous, but the mansion itself was also stunning. It was the perfect location with its rose garden, dreamy lavender walkway, beautiful slate stone paths, and the beautiful view of Los Angeles from downtown all the way to the ocean.
We had our ceremony in the rose garden and our guests were welcomed to refreshments like yuzu matcha iced green tea and fruit infused water. After the ceremony our guests passed through the lavender walkway to the west courtyard for cocktail hour where they could grab a drink and hors d’oeuvre and head to the terrace to admire the view or sit on vintage lounge chairs and chat. Guests found their escort cards nestled in lavender on vintage silver trays before heading into the inner courtyard for the reception.
Our reception space was as dreamy as can be. Pale blue is Tiffany’s favorite color and we knew we wanted to incorporate blue into our wedding. Each table had brushed gold flatware, pale French blue napkins, and fresh sprigs of lavender tied with French blue silk ribbon placed on top of intricate chargers. Flowers are very important to the bride and we made sure that our centerpieces had all of her favorite flowers like Juliet garden roses, lilac, peonies, and freesia.
Dinner was served family style and guests were free to choose from an assortment of desserts which were displayed on vintage trays and glassware on the dessert table. Our favorites included earl grey macarons, green tea mochi donut holes, lavender lemon cupcakes, and earl grey cake with honey jam. After dinner it was time to party! Guests danced and took photos at the photobooth before we had to wrap things up. We were so sad when the reception had to end, but we still had our after party to look forward to.
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and we only wish we could relive it again and again!
