Valeria Sokolova and Jon Berkland tied the knot at Nobu Malibu, with the soothing sound of waves and a stunning sunset in the background. As friends and family gathered for the destination wedding, they were greeted by a gentleman in a top hat and a burlesque dancer adorned with pearls and jewels. Valeria looked ethereal in her lace off-the-shoulder Zuhair Murad gown as she and Jon exchanged vows in front of an enchanting flower-draped altar. Blossoms also graced the reception, where a white, pink and green floral wall created the perfect backdrop for photos on the balcony overlooking the sea. Votive lanterns hung with white wisteria and greenery from the ceiling to create a dreamy atmosphere for the celebration. Valeria switched her look for the reception, wearing a showstopping short dress covered in jewels and feathers that swayed in the ocean breeze. Soft pink glassware brought a soft beauty to the tables, where guests enjoyed Nobu’s famed sushi dishes. Charming chopsticks customized with the couple’s names were given to guests as favors. As Valeria and Jon cut their three-tier cake, frosted with pearls and flowers, the ocean breeze wafted romance through this perfect night.
