Fall Winter 2020

At Michelle and Lee Lawrence’s wedding at Cielo Farms in Malibu, wedding planner Kristeen LaBrot found creative ways to incorporate the couple’s beloved cat, Magnolia, into the festivities. From the drink menu and cocktail napkins to the latte art inside the coffee cups, their love for Magnolia was evident throughout the wedding décor. LaBrot’s original approach takes honoring your fur children a step beyond floral collars and an honorary strut down the aisle. 

I Do Coffee served up caffeine, complete with an artistic feline touch, to fuel the party all night long.

Invitations designed by Kara Anne + Co incorporated the couple’s feline.

In addition to the traditional “Mr. and Mrs.” cocktails, an adorable, citrusy mixed drink dubbed “Maggie’s Catnip,” in honor of Michelle and Lee’s cat, Magnolia, appeared on the drink menu.

Guests could dab their paws with “Magnolia” napkins while sipping to the new Lawrence family.
