Lauren Rae Levy and Marcel Vigneron’s dreamy wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch was straight out of a storybook. Lauren, a stylist, and Marcel, a renowned chef, wanted their celebration to be close to their home base in Los Angeles yet far enough removed to still feel they were at one with nature. A custom door served as a portal into the couple’s very own fairy tale where guests were greeted by a “unicorn” with golden hooves before the ceremony started. Inspired by fashion week, the ceremony aisle was raised and lined with pampas grass; Lauren walked down her own runway in a strapless Galia Lahav ball gown. Representing eternity, circles were used as a motif throughout the wedding, from the invitations to the ceremony’s round altar. To give the ceremony a personal touch, guests were asked beforehand to provide a word of intention. The individual words they chose were then engraved on circular bracelets and placed at their seats. Given Marcel’s profession, gastronomy took center stage during the reception, with the couple working with Très LA Catering to craft the perfect menu. Later, guests were surprised with the Blast Ice Cream food truck. Toward the end of the night, Lauren, who is also a musician, slipped into a long-sleeved Galia Lahav gown and took to the stage, surprising Marcel with her own rendition of Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best.”
