When a couple’s story resembles a whirlwind romance, it’s only right that they seal the deal with a fairytale-inspired wedding. Neda Saper and Michel Kasher met on Christmas while vacationing in Vegas with friends. After planning their first date, Michael realized he had booked the date during a ski vacation so rather than canceling, he flew home for that one night.
The couple wed one year later on Christmas Eve, after planning the entire wedding in two months. As the guests arrived and took their seats, two young ballerinas danced en pointe down the aisle of the Four Seasons Westlake Village ballroom, an ode to the classic ballet, The Nutcracker. An abundance of chandeliers, lush greenery and a stunning chuppah of white blooms and foliage added to the magical atmosphere. After an emotional ceremony, the ballerinas brought the magic to the reception by accompanying the couple during their first dance. Tall white floral centerpieces, clear candelabras, velvet tablecloths, and gold accents set a regal tone for the evening. The couple incorporated a Jewish Ketubah signing ceremony to honor their heritage. After cutting the elegant white cake, guests were treated to an opulent Viennese hour table of fruit and desserts. Framed photos of the couple’s grandparents and family members lining the ballroom walls brought an element of family and history to an already emotional celebration.
