The Golden Touch: Vintage Chanel-Inspired Wedding

Renee and Trevor's breathtaking Beverly Hills wedding was inspired by vintage Coco Chanel with a James Bond-style sophistication. The chic soiree was overflowing with cream, champagne, and gold and told a story of contrast; hard and soft, dark and light, masculine and feminine. Family and friends gathered at The Montage Beverly Hills for the ceremony and were greeted by acoustic rock, small-bites, and modern white infinity chairs. The couple said "I do" in front of a dramatic backdrop wall that was covered in textured wallpaper and layered with luscious orchid blooms. The picture-perfect image was tied together by a trio of crystal chandelier spheres that were suspended above their heads throughout the ceremony. 

Immediately following the nuptials, guests made their way to a cocktail hour which featured a sleek u-shaped bar, candlelight, and a banquette lounge area with sofas, coffee tables, and thematic pillows. Inspired by the groom's personal collection, the escort cards were shaped like miniature clocks and displayed on the existing credenza, styled with candlelight. The clock-theme continued in the warm and intimate ballroom where the reception was held. Each table was placed with a clock that displayed a specific time, indicating where each guest was to be seated based the "time" listed on their escort card. The tablescapes were bursting with florals held in gold and mercury glass vessels and the tabletops were lined with cream napkins, custom letterpress menus, and the romantic glow of candlelight. Two specialty stations were set in the alcoves of the room-- one for whiskey and one for dessert where the cream tone-on-tone cake was displayed on a gold bar cart.

Every ounce of Renee and Trevor's wedding night was designed to perfection and the chic, vintage affair is a story that will be relived through memories and photographs for generations to come.
