West Coast Chic – A Beverly Hills Jewish Wedding

Audrey Hepburn Wedding RingsIf you were invited to a Beverly Hills wedding, you might develop certain expectations; designer-to-the-stars personae coordinating every detail, lavish decor, an over-the-top experience all around. You wouldn’t exactly be wrong. But what if the elegance was more understated than over-the-top, and what if the ring bearer pillow was a… sock puppet?? Photography by Bound By.Jewish Wedding Beverly Hills, CA Jennifer and David did Beverly Hills chic their way for their October 2012 Jewish wedding. Yes, the estate was decorated by the Obama White House interior decorator, but the details were all fun and personal, and that estate was the groom’s sister’s house.

She just happened to have the perfect pool house exterior for the ceremony site – a recent feature in Veranda Magazine. She even lent the bride her Neil Lane emerald ring. A bride’s gotta have something borrowed, right?
