Ben and Maddie, experienced globe trotters, cat lovers, and generally all around fun loving souls held their wedding in lush gem of a garden.  Sherman Gardens is hidden in plain sight in downtown Corona Del Mar, and was the perfect location for their intimate wedding.  I loved that Ben, originally hailing from France, was experiencing an American wedding.  He gifted Hermes ties to his groomsmen, often had champagne in hand, and broke into the most genuine smiles throughout the day.  Maddie, a Japanese American hottie, could go from silly to fierce (I mean that in the Tyra Banks-work-it way) instantly.  Their florals were stunning!  Check out the circular floral ceremony installation and the overflowing floral chandeliers at reception.  Topping off the night, guests were treated to a boba bar, pie from the Pie Hole, and even a fire pit.

Huge congratulations to Ben and Maddie!  Thank you to all the talented and hardworking vendors behind the magic.
